Yes, it can be legal to make a silencer. For everything Form-1, from silencer designs that are easily made, to filing forms with the BATF, to 3D modeling. Remember, you must have an approved BATF Form-1 to make a silencer. All NFA laws apply.

So I just submitted my Form 1 to build my first silencer. I have a great design and can't wait for approval so I can get started. This is my question: I'de like to photo document the entire process to show everyone the design and how it all will go together, culminating with a Youtube video of the can in action.
Do you think this is a good idea? Or should I refrain from providing such detail? I'm proud of the things I build so I'm not sure the stigma(s) , or lack there-of, in doing something as detailed as I suggest. Not to mention if there might be some legal paramount I might be breaching.

You are entitled to build one silencer with your form 1. Build and document. It is your right. Your'e doing nothing wrong. No white guilt necessary.

Go for it, there are or were a few tutorial threads with photos on this forum.

SilencerTalk was a place I could disccuss making registered silencers without being told I was a criminal. That is no longer true. http://www.silencertalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=132&t=99273

I've done it twice, once in great detail on BARF.com... I think it's still there.

Just realize you are showing the finished and complete design to the whole world. So don't alter it or repair it after it's done. The first is illegal, and the second still seems to be a gray area.

Do it! I did so with mine.

Although if you have a unique design that you think you may want to patent, or if you copy a patented design in building yours, you may not want to show those parts of it.
