If you are using PVC pipe for the shell of your mock suppressor, you can use small set screws to secure the mock suppressor to your barrel. I did that with my mock suppressor and it works well. You can see the final product in the sniper mods section of this forum...I bought the one mounted on my M4 98C SOPMOD, but constructed the one mounted on my RAP4 pistol sniper mod conversion.
Cost about $10 altogether. My mock suppressor is constructed from foam pipe insulation enclosed in PVC pipe. The pipe insulation keeps the PVC from bouncing around, and I secured the insulation to the pipe with some PVC cement. I then drilled 4 pilot holes into the PVC at the end furthest away from the barrel tip, and applied a coat of primer, and two coats of flat black paint. After the paint dried, I installed 4 set head screws through the pipe and insulation to secure the mock suppressor to the barrel. If you want to avoid scratching your barrel, apply some electrical tape around the barrel where the screws will bite in. Be careful when inserting the set screws not to overtighten, as you will will strip the PVC threads and relocate your set screw holes. Materials are commonly available at most hardware stores. Lowes and Home Depot sell remnant scraps of PVC for about $2, so you don't need to buy an entire length of pipe unless you're making more than 2 or 3 mock suppressors. Good luck with your project.

Curious on the size of pipe used and the screws? Could you provide a tighter shot of the suppressor? Thinking of doing one up for the weekend "wow" factor at the local field. Thanks.

With the exception of a few states, silencers (suppressors) are not illegal to own or fabricate in the U.S. Possession of a suppressor or suppressor parts requires registration, being of legal status to own a suppressor or parts, payment of registration fees (actually a tax), and accepting random audits by the ATF of the premises where the suppressor or suppressor parts are kept or stored. You should check local and state regulations before investing any time or money in suppressor purchase or fabrication.
Mock suppressors are legal in most if not all of the U.S., but some states require special marking (orange tip) to make a clearly apparent distinction between a non-functional replica and a real NFA regulated device. Local municipalities may also restrict where a replica firearm or device, including paintball markers and airsoft replicas may be used or demonstrated. Again, check with local authorities before taking any action with regards to suppressors, mock or otherwise.
