Quote:
MCL 750.224(1) prohibits a person from manufacturing, selling, offering for sale or possessing a muffler or silencer.

A muffler or silencer is defined as "a device for muffling, silencing, or deadening the report of a firearm.

Pellet guns fall under the Michigan statutory definition of a firearm. Therefore, it is illegal to have a pellet gun with a silencer or muffler on it. It has recently come to our attention that several pellet guns are on the market in Michigan which have a built-in or internal silencer. Once of these is the Gamo Whisper.

Although they are not regulated by federal law, since federally a pellet gun is not a firearm, they are prohibited by Michigan law. Michigan gun shops should not have them in stock, nor be selling them in this state.

Please help to advise gun shops in your area of this prohibition.

Thank you,

Look into the pcp type air rifles. They are quit and you get muiltple shots instead of breaking the barrel everytime and also no recoil so they are the most accurate. Also Quieter that any other pellet gun too.

Check out the guns on this page and find what ever is right for you. Look at the air arms and evianix

What???? Are you saying that an air RIFLE is illegal because the barrel is RIFLED, hence its name air RIFLE?

Nope- it illegal because of the internal silencer. See Sully's post #2 in this thread.

"Michigan gun shops should not have them in stock, nor be selling them in this state.

You would think that gun dealers would/should know the law ???

I have been told the Gamo Whisper is nice and quiet for taking out critters....

The gamo whisper is a good gun. it shoots good and is quiet. it will take some time to break it in for it to be quiet thought. if u do but it i would recommend a after market trigger and scope. gamo has the wost trigger and they dont have very good scopes. if the gamo whisper is illgeal, then there should be around 1000 stores shut down, and a whole crap load of people fined haha. if nothing has happened to anyone or any of the stores that carry them, then they must not be that illegal

Default ATF is the boss

Does the ATF list the Whisper as having a silencer. If so, then MSP should been busting the shops that were selling it. Sounds like that only way it will be settled is if the common person is prosecuted, then it will go thru the entire court system and 10 year later we will know.
