No, they are not! You can run a suppressor on most guns, big bores included. Suppressors are legal in 42 out of our beautiful 50 states. Suppressors are only illegal in the states of California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Rhode Island, along with Washington D.C.
Specific states and municipalities might have different regulations on silencers, like Vermont and Connecticut, which don’t allow hunting with a suppressor. The good news is that we can help you navigate all of these different rules. We can also help you get through the mountains of paperwork, set up a free NFA gun trust, and buy a tax stamp.

It will certainly impact which suppressor you buy. Most suppressors have a minimum required barrel length. There’s not a standard; it will just depend on the brand and what they have tested for optimal usage.
It may also cause a little bit of point of impact shift, depending on how long your barrel is. The longer and skinnier your barrel, the more impact shift you’ll generally see. A quality suppressor will be consistent in how much it shifts, so you should be able to adapt and plan around the POI shift.
You technically can permanently weld a suppressor to your gun, and many folks do it. The main reason people do is to change how they’d like to tax their gun (i.e. increase the barrel length on an SBR so that it can be taxed as a rifle).
We don’t recommend it. It makes your suppressor much harder to clean and often does not save you much money. It also greatly limits the use of your can to only one gun. Since many suppressors can be used for multiple calibers, like the BANISH 30, you lose a lot of usability by welding your suppressor to your gun.
Like any home-rigged firearm accessory, it can increase the risk of injury if you are modifying the firearm or silencer yourself. So if you do choose to permanently weld it on, make sure to take it to a competent gunsmith.
You can pin a suppressor, but as it is not permanent, it won’t count towards barrel length. In other words, just pinning a suppressor on will not save you the extra $200 of getting an SBR stamp. So you can do it, but there’s really no reason to.
