Re: legal noise suppressors?
You don't have it quite right. You don't send in the can. You send in a form. Serial number (and all kinds of other info) is on the form. You also send in your 200 dollar check. They do a background check on you, and if they decide you can have it, they send the form back with a tax stamp on it. Now it is registered with the ATF, and you are allowed to have it. If you ever want to sell it to someone, they have to get it RE-registered in THEIR name, and out of yours. And they, also, have to pay a 200 dollar tax.
