Ron,
The United States is exactly that – 50 individual united states. There are local, county, state and federal laws. Although federal law (by omission) may permit the use of a silencer in conjunction with an air rifle, local, county or state law may prohibit it. Currently, there is no Federal Law that clearly defines the use of silencers on air rifles and therefore some risks is involved with the use of such devices. Most air gun manufacturers handle this issue by permanently affixing the silencer to the barrel or barrel shroud for the US market.
