Are suppressors leagal to use in bullseye? Just shot in my league tonight and the question popped up because someone is using, and did use tonight, a 9mm H&K with like a 5'' suppressor on it. Looked and sounded cool. We couldn't find any info at the time saying they are forbidden, figuring they are like a muzzle break and do not have rifling. Our league dosent count for anything NRA wise and is just an internal LE BE league. We figured the guy went through the hassle of getting the tax stamp, why not.

Since the rule book doesn't specifically mention suppressors, I'd say that they are allowable. That is to say, as long as, they don't fall under rule 3.18.

Super old thread, but I’m going to revive it rather than posting a new one. I train on my home range with a suppressor. I really like the added weight. I went through the most recent rule book and don’t see anything prohibiting them. Any guidance from someone more in the know?

Ty!

This was my last NMC with the suppressor. I really like the weight.

I called the NRA a while back about this, they are not allowed.  Since it comes up every so often, I suggested they put it in the next version of the rule book.

I don’t see a specific prohibition in the CMP, but there is a limit on barrel length of 10 inches. I don’t think I’d want to argue the point that an attachment on the muzzle doesn’t become part of the barrel “length”.

9 3/4 from beginning of chamber to end of suppressor. It will pass the 10” rule.

I checked the CMP Forum and there was a thread regarding suppressors.  According to that, they are not legal for CMP matches.  I will follow up with an email to them as well.
