Possible but again the cost of material & tooling isn't changing. Maybe the can shave a little cost by increasing the volume at each process in production. It'll be interesting to see (that's IF the HPA passes).
Tony some years ago I priced out the raw material cost of an AAC-SDN-6. Using aerospace quality tube and sheet I don't remember the actual numbers but it was waaaayyyyy under $100. Granted these materials are difficult to work with and suppressors do require pretty tight tolerances but these companies already know how to make them. And yes I'm fully aware of how expensive TI and exotic stainless steels are. Real thin titanium sheet and wire can easily run well over $100 per lb. Having a background in estimating mfg. costs in aerospace I can promise you prices will come down drastically if regulation goes away so sales volume goes up exponentially. If we could buy them like Slemmo I would expect the price to be cut in half and still leave a ton of margin for the manufacturers. It's all about the volume.

Ti Suppressor for 650USD: http://titandemper.no/product.php?id_product=47
These are 3D printed. They're also launching a Ti muzzle brake designed by a buddy of mine on the national rifle team. He's used it this season. The design is physically a bit like the SJC, with rearward angled ports, and an expansion chamber before the ports.

I would guess you'd get an increase in hi point like products. Super cheap so everybody could have several but obviously inferior in every aspect.

The real win is that solvent-trap adapters could be used legally as suppressor hosts for oil filters.

Easily and cheaply replaceable baffles!

Good luck seeing your sights over that oil filter

In Norway they are completely unregulated. It's a piece of metal you can send your kid to the store and get. They are extremely popular here as a lot of people don't like wearing earpro when hunting.
Did Norway just kick USA's ass?

Historic moment.......Our gun laws are better than some of your states, but overall I think you're far better off than us.
