Metals sources?

Yes, it can be legal to make a silencer. For everything Form-1, from silencer designs that are easily made, to filing forms with the BATF, to 3D modeling. Remember, you must have an approved BATF Form-1 to make a silencer. All NFA laws apply.

Metals sources?

In particular Inconel sources. It seems there are plenty of sources for titanium drops, as well as new material, but Inconel seems to be more difficult to find cheaper sources for.

You have to keep watching it pops up time to time.

Ebay unless you buy in bulk or a manufacturer is willing to sell you some scrap.

McMaster is a bit cheaper and also has a 6" option for less.
