    I'm a 24 year old writer, and the novel I am currently working on will have one flashback scene involving a crime ring in 1949 Boston. I have no knowledge of guns whatsoever, and Google has proven unhelpful, so I figured I would get some personal advice from people with the knowledge base I need!

    The scene I'm writing will involve a single gun, but it needs to be silenced. I know commercial silencers were available at the time, I just don't know what types of guns were available that could use a silencer. Military or commercial grade doesn't matter, it's a crime ring for a reason ;)

    (If this is an inappropriate use of this forum, I apologize. I write a lot of novels involving guns, so I hoped any knowledge I learn here could be used in the future as well. Thank you!)
