one time per item. 2 suppressors (they dont silence, they suppress) would equal 2 tax stamps. The fee is $200 per stamp. They take anywhere from 1-12 months to process. You pay the fee and the cost of the supressor up front, since the serial # on the suppressor is what you're registering. Then you wait for the approval before you take posession. Suppressors can cost anywhere from $300-2000 depending on caliber, construction, and brand. pros... well... it makes it quiet. also reduces recoil. it's nice shooting without hearing protection on guns it makes quiet enough. And it's just plain cool cons... they cost money. And it's a disease. If you get one, you'll get another.

your google fu is weak my son.

Try googling for "Class III North Carolina" Or "NFA Weapons North Carolina"

I'm sure you can find a list of class iii dealers that would be able to sell you what you're wanting, and help you fill out and send in the paper work for a tax stamp or NFA trust (they are different)

Find a class 3 dealer in your state, make the purchase and dealer will fill out paperwork, instruct what you need to get done - fingerprint cards, photos, and chief law enforcement officer signature where you live. Return all paperwork to dealer along with check for $200 and off to ATF / NFA it goes. Be prepared for a 6 month wait until paperwork returns to dealer with your tax stamp and he will call for you to pick up your new toy!

Why would somebody in South Carolina spend Google time finding information about North Carolina?

Silencers are actually NOT class 3 weapons even though a lot of people mistakenly call them that.

They're legally and technically classified as Title II weapons.

Class 3 only refers to a gun dealer that has a special tax licensing to deal in machineguns and silencers and such. And is probably where most people get confused on the terminology.

Nevertheless, Title II weapons are the legal classification of NFA weapons.

Title II weapons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So that is probably why google wasn't pulling up as much because you were using the wrong search criteria.

If you build a silencer, you will do it by submitting a form 1 in advance and wait for approval before building it. If he buys one, he will have to submit a form 4 instead.

When the paperwork is approved at the NFA branch in WV, they will affix a $200 tax stamp to one of the duplicate copies that they will return to him to keep in his records or to the dealer he is buying the silencer from that will give it to him when he picks up the silencer.

I hope this helps clear up some of the confusion.

PS Slugger, the phone number for the NFA Branch HQ in WV is 304-616-4500
