“Birdkiller”Does a shroud count as suppressor?


Yes, if it has baffles or other noise dampening stuff (which most do).  

Some stores claim that built in moderators / shrouds are legally different to ones that unscrew but I can’t find anything in Federal law which states that distinction. 

To be clear, I’m not saying Airgun moderators are illegal.  The law has been left deliberately vague and there are many contradictions between federal, state, local municipality and hunting laws. 

If you own firearms, I would be careful with a shroud or moderator that has  1/2″ unf threads. This is just my opinion. have a read of the case details and see what you think. Google “Airgun moderator test case ruling”.
