How silencer patents are often meaningless (multiple inventors for the same invention)

This is a Maxim 1909 patent for a baffle design, and also the 2004 Ase Utra patent for the baffle design, and two circa 2007 Russian patents for it as well. I recently posted that I feel at least 60% of the sound suppressor patents of the last 2-3 decades are bogus. This is an illustration of what I mean by that.
