ATF Arrests Man For eBay Silencer Sales – The Firearm Blog (Muzzle Brakes)


As we’ve previously discussed, the rules, regulations and laws surrounding silencers is tricky at best and downright scary at their worst. The fact that a single baffle is considered a silencer within itself is still, well, baffling. However, these are the laws here in the US, and until we get them changed or repealed, we all have to follow them or face the repercussions. Apparently, one Ohio man decided to push the boundaries of the law and caught the attention of the ATF when he was selling muzzle brake variations on eBay.

Another grim reminder that ATF does not work based on logic.

I found a copy of one of the insane shoelaces string = machine gun part letter. Enjoy the madness.

    The ATF has also ruled that slide fire stocks are NOT a machine gun part as they alter nothing on the INSIDE of the firearm. Hellfire trigger actuators are the same. As far as surppressor, if you are going to be dumb, you gonna get spanked.

  2. Suppressors should be legal and so cheap they sell them in twin packs in the grocery store check out lane. I just mailed a form 1 yesterday so I can make a suppressor for my AR. $200 for a stamp is just ridicules. Now that we are “allowed” to own them here in Iowa. We are almost to the 21st century. Now if we can get the restriction off of owning full auto.

  3. To quote my friend Dave, “If suppressors were a modern invention, they would be mandatory.”
