Greetings :-),

Assuming one had the skills to design and make it oneself, can anyone out there give me a notion of how small one could make a sound suppressor able to work effectively with .45ACP rounds? Most of the ones I've seen have been pretty big, but they are also commercial products meant to last. I'm looking more for something that would be specifically designed to be mounted to a compact .45ACP pistol and be effective for 5-10 rounds.

Thanks :-),
