Exactly. The BATFE has relaxed a lot on suppressors. used to be they had to be welded shut, no cleaning, no replacing baffling material, and on and on. Now it has become a more open field per say. the idea of a multi caliber suppressor appeals to many. Most cannot afford $200 for each caliber they want so it was only logicial to go to a multicaliber. As a buddy whom is a class III dealer stated, the BATFE has gotten so if you can put numbers permently on a PVC pipe, form 1 it, form 4 it, and pay the $200; then they could approve it! The adapter for the oil filter is another example. You are paying $200 tax for an adapter, not the oil filter being it is replacable. Now if they are allowing an adapter as a NFA decise, then they have relaxed a whole lot on regulation as to supressors.
