Long-Ass Shotgun Suppressor – 32 Inches Of Quiet

Swallow your morning coffee before you look at the following pics.  Enter the Metrogun:

As seen above, this 32″ beast screws into the choke tube threads of most 12 gauge shotguns, and according to the FAQ their website it does not considered an NFA item by the ATF so no paperwork is required.

More info and pics over at the Metrogun website.  Price not listed.

Commenter Farm.Dad on WeerdWorld said it best:

 I suspect if you shot down 6 miles of sewer pipe not much report would come out the other end either LOL I cannot imagine adding 32 inches to a normal shotgun barrel and trying to swing it on a target .

hahah yep.

If you end up buying a Metrogun barrel, just make sure you don’t go nuts and mistake an average plane for the Batwing.

I’m gonna stunt on Metrogun and get to work on a 64″ version with a unicycle as a monopod.  Concept mock-up:

Thoughts?

I think you need to have a guy riding the unicycle, sort of like how there’s a fireman on the tail end of a ladder truck.

What’s hilarious was when I wrote that post I wasn’t even aware of the photo gallery.

There’s a reason why they hide pictures of their product!

I hope they come out with a pistol version! I bet a 28″ barrel on my 1911 will shoot REAL quiet!

If you look at shotguns from the 1st half of the 20th century, 30″ barrels were not all that uncommon – especially in the Winchester 1897 for some reason.

I have an old double barrel 12gauge with 30″ barrels.
But I’m honestly thinking of committing the unforgivable crime of hacksawing off the front 5″ because they are SOOO badly pitted that it feels dangerous to shoot.

Price is listed here (bottom of page): http://metrogun.com/order.html
$100 deposit required. As weird as it looks, I want to see a video of it in action.

It looks cool, but little to much. :))) They sure believe that size matters :)

Please hide this from the trapshooting crowd. 34″ guns are already commonplace in the sport; if they realize they can get a 32″ extension they’ll have a coronary.

Damn it guys! You’re meant to shoot the clay! Not smack it out of the air!

Unholy crap! I would say that looks cartoonish, but of all the wacky cartoon weapons I have ever seen I have never seen one that weird.

Heck one can say that the Taurus raging judge is based off cartoon weaponry.

Now add one of these to one of those, mock up some kind of gas seal system like a nagant revolver, hmm. Think anyone would buy a suppressed raging judge with an insanely long barrel, if people will buy this, who knows….

I would imagine that this actually DECREASES your muzzle velocity. There comes a point where the friction from the barrel steals more speed than the gas pressure can make up for. This being so quiet, I would imagine that by the time the shot+wad are leaving the barrel there is almost no pressure behind it. Of course, being a shotgun, there’s probably not much friction anyways on the plastic shot cup, so it might be a moot point.

The scope is so you can see the front bead sight, not the target.. :-)

This thing has been out for years, i remember reading about it in American Rifleman or something when I was a kid. You combine it with Sub-Sonic shot shells and you get a ridiculously quiet shotgun without broaching NFA laws. They’re target market was urban and suburban bird and pest control or hunting or something like that

Can you imagine some 80 year old man getting out of bed at 2AM to confront a burglar and he pulls this 30ft monstrosity out and tries to clear his house? LOL

“Goddammit. Who put that wall there.” *pokes barrel through wall to shoot crook*

I want one that telescopes like a slow version of Darth Vaders light saber, with sound effects too. Imagine the effect on your competition when you step to the line, hit the button, and rrrrrrrrrrrwwwwwwwwnnnnnnnnnn your barrel extends from 30 to a manly 62 inches of hot black steel while unfurling a smiling Bob flag (sorry got carried away). I bet the ladies would love you too.
