Re: Thoughts on these tubes I found on ebay?

"intent" has to have applied evidence or other damning circumstantial evidence, otherwise its just speculation, any lawyer will tell you this. Example, you get caught by feds making what looks like a K baffle on your lathe at home and you don't have a form-1, very likely the item is for a silencer, ...

Re: Form 1 Suppressor and Outsourcing - Subcontracting

as long as the creation or modification was done under the direct oversight of the applicant, thus having the applicant retain custody and control of the firearm. Yikes, a continuous video feed between me and machinist seeing all my parts 24x7 is "direct oversight". Retaining custody and control me...

Re: "hardened" freeze plugs

You can also sandwich red hot item (the hotter the better) between two pieces of dry ice. Don't take my word for it, try it. Fast cool and you get migration of C into the metal.

Re: Joining two suppresors

If two silencers were able to screw together, then voila, no extra parts. Hence, leave a threaded section on front of your DIY so it can screw into the back of any other that would fit the barrel ;), if that's what you wanted.

Re: Mailing to yourself

If the item is considered a "firearm" then Fed law allows you to ship the item to next location with you as recipient and you can use "C/O" (care of) of someone who secures the item at that destination location, but only if the item remains legal at both places. Many people do this with rifles and p...

Re: Welding a silencer to a barrel

This was talked about in the past. Fed's can argue the "how easy" part. Is it legal if I can break the pinning in 30sec flat and remove the item? Is a micro tack using laser good enough?
