Well many air guns come with a barrel that will reduce the sound. And they are sold in the US. Most don’t call them a “silencer” since they don’t really do away with all sound.
Gamo even named a line of air guns “whisper” and then made them able to shoot past the sound barrier which made them pop. It seems if its made on the barrel and you can’t remove it they let it go? Gamo calls them “Non-removable noise dampener (with up to 52% reduction) in the ad for the rifle.

And even if you put one on a powder burner its not that big a deal. Just paperwork and $200 for the tax stamp…………and then months and months of waiting.
