I have never read any federal law, rule or regulation that prohibited take apart silencers registered on one tax stamp. As far as I know the BATFE is getting stricter as time goes by, not more lenient. If anyone has a link to any recent (in the last 10 years) law or ruling that makes things easier for us, please post it.
The BATFE has always been willing to register anything as a silencer no matter what it was made of. As long as the forms will filled out correctly they would approve them. No form 1 builder should have ever been required to send in plans or specifications other than the caliber and length listed in blcok form of the ATF form 1. The length block was usually filled in as "not applicable" by many form 1 builders until the BATFE started telling us to specify a length.
