The handgun suppressors have pistons that are easily changed for different host weapons or subcalibers. Pistons are constructed from 17-4 stainless steel and then heat treated for maximum durability. The piston is part of the Nielsen device that moves and allows semi-automatic cycling, but it also contains the female threads that attach to the muzzle of the host pistol or sub-gun. These pistons are easily interchangeable for compatibility with all relevant host guns and can be changed out to be compatible with subcaliber host guns, which means you can shoot smaller caliber rounds through the same suppressor, making it a multi-caliber silencer.
Buying a Class 3 item as an individual from a local dealer
Buying a Class 3 item.is not a difficult task. You will need to fill out a form 4 and send the forms to the ATF with a check for $200. Then simply wait for the forms to be approved. That's it.
The local dealer will help the buyer fill out the transfer form. The dealer will also help the buyer fill out another form called the Citizenship form.
This form identifies the buyer either as a United States citizen or a legal resident alien. The dealer will then give the buyer some fingerprint cards. The buyer must take the fingerprint cards to a local police department and be fingerprinted. Fees for this service are usually only a few dollars. The next step for the buyer is to get two passport size photos and attach them to the Form 4. The final step is to take the Form 4 to the local (Chief Law Enforcement Officer) for the county in which the buyer lives.
When the forms are approved they are sent back to the selling dealer. The dealer then calls the buyer to come pickup the silencer.
Buying a Class 3 item as an individual from an out of state dealer
Buying a silencer from an out of state dealer is just as easy as buying one from a local dealer. You pay the out of state dealer for the silencer and select your local Class 3 dealer. The out of state dealer will then transfer the silencer to your local Class 3 dealer on a Form 3 (tax free) upon approval with BATFE, aprox. 6 weeks. So, you still need to use a local dealer. The local dealer will handle your transfer on the Form 4 ($200 tax).
