I was wondering if i decide to buy the last upgrades of any gun will all the previous upgrades be added also to that value or do i have to buy all the upgrades for max effect.

ex. all the silencers for the pistol for max quietness?

I only bought the last upgrade for the armor cause it fits all outfits and notice all the previous armor i did not buy said i have them on.

I also notice a discount on my assualt rifle for some upgrades
ex. 210000 (200000)

They don't add. In some cases, certain upgrades replace earlier upgrades. The Type 2 silencer replaces the Type 1. You can't have both on the weapon. If you have a Type 1, and buy a Type 2, it'll switch them out automatically. In other cases, certain upgrades require other upgrades. For example, the scope for the silverballer requires the rail mount. The scope is $200,000, while the rail mount is $75,000 (not sure about this price, just pulling this number out of my butt for the example). In that case, the price of the scope shows as $275,000 ($200,000). What that means is if you already have the mount, you'll pay $200,000 for the scope. If you haven't bought it yet, you'll pay $275,000 and get both upgrades.

The long slide excludes the silencer. That means you cannot use the long slide with the silencer, although it's more accurate. You don't need it. By the time I made it to the casino mission, I had the scope on the silverballer, and it works great as a concealable sniper rifle. The only problem is with very long distances, because the scope doesn't zoom.
