Home made gun

While searching a house where a few robbers got arrested my buddy (Police Inspector J.Howard) found this. The gun is a .22 caliber home customized (longer barel) and the silencer (fully home made) is using a 'stopper' which is illegal even in the otherwise very gun friendly South Africa. For the ones who don't know, a 'stopper' is usually made of fairly soft rubber and completely blocks of the exit hole of the silencer. The explosion is completely contained in the silencer and thereof very quiet.(especially when used with subsonic rounds)Moblog via Picoblogger
