weld endplug into both ends of 6' long tube

and no machine or weld shop will have a CLUE what they just did. Then cut off 6-7" of each end, and whatdo you have, hmm? :-) have them centerdrill each plug, too, so you can "later spin the tube to polish it". Then you can drill and tap it by hand, it will be straight enough for you purpose. If need be, a judicious whack with a rubber mallet can straighten things out. Then be sure to retighten it on your main item, cause the whack will have loosened up that relationship.

A pipe cutter and marksalot ink will suffice to give you a "true-enough" mark around the outside of the pipe. Just follow that mark carefully with your hacksaw. Once you've cut off the pieces that you want, use a square and file to true up the end and deburr it. You can then use a Dremel and cutoff wheel to make the internal snap ring groove, which holds the washer that serves as your front endplug. Just set your caliper appropriately, ink the inside of the tube, and then gently drag the caliper around the circumfernce of the tube, holding it so that one jaw of the tool slides around the front end of the tube, and then the other jaw's tip marks the ink inside of the tube. Follow that mark with your cutoff wheel and you'll have your groove for holding the internal snapring. Just because Joe can't think of a way to do it does not mean that it can't be done.

An empty, unthreaded, tube is not a silencer. A tool for crushing into shape some screenwire, for forming baffles, is not a silencer under current law. A threaded barrel is not illegal, either. If you have those 3 things, however, you can have a .22 silencer in half an hour, mounted on your gun. The AR is a little more complicated, it might take you a couple of hours to finish one of those.

Or you can just go to the manufacturer, pull out your VISA card, buy one, fill out some paperwork and take it home later.

not in canada you can't, or nearly any other country and not in a dozen of the US states, either. and if you want one for a high-v rifle, it's going to ruin a $1000 bill.

Melvin, I'm referring to your country, mainly because I have no doubt of your limited knowledge of Canadian firearms law. Which is understandable since you are not allowed up here. But I could become a resident of your country (and bring my dozens & dozens of firearms with me) if I felt so inclined.

No it's not. It's a monotonous repeat of your illegal silencer making process.
