    It's just a double thread with an adaptor.

    This is a relatively new idea brought about by the new legislation allowing moderators in Texas.
    The ban has been lifted but there is still a $200 Federal tax to pay on top of the price of the moderator.
    In this case it is just an oil filter but when the 'real' thing kicks in they will be tied up in more paperwork than we are here.

    I take it they havn't thought about the fact that oil filters generaly have paper type meterial inside, so they wont take long to catch alight.

    These adapters are not something entirely new and have been around for years but usually advertised in the small ads of some of U.S. magazines the likes of which have titles such as “Soldier of Fortune” and are aimed (pun intended) at the Walter Mitty characters and survivalists. They are intended to provide improvised sound moderators using items that are readily available. Alternatives are the baby teat wired onto the muzzle of the gun or the Soda bottle moderator.
    The U.S.A. has some very liberal laws regarding freedom of speech so it is perfectly legal and acceptable to supply information and even some component parts to produce items that have until recently been illegal to own and use or at the very least extremely controlled by federal laws. Some companies for instance specialised in producing books telling you how to convert semi automatic firearms to full auto.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.
