    Oregon/sound supressors

    I was just on AR15.com looking at this gun porn thread AR15.COM :: Forums :: Oregon Gun Porn and was just wondering why/how almost all these people have supressors? Do they all have tax stamps or are they just legal there?

    Thanks, Jack

    The tax stamp is a federal requirement, so presumably, they all have the stamps.
    Oregon allows suppressors, with a sign off from (IIRC)a county chief LEO, and adherence to federal laws.

    ATF Form 1 & $200. Currently takes 60 to 90 days to get your stamp. Of course you still have to pay for the suppressor. There may be Oregon requirements as well.

    FYI - I saw a table with a guy selling them at a local gun show recently in DFW. I asked the guys about it. They told me that they even help you fill out the paperwork & that if you qualify for a CHL in Texas you should have no problem. They said the ones they were selling for Glocks ran about $900.

    You would also need a threaded barrel.

    A Form 1 is for a suppressor that you make yourself. You pay $200 for the tax and whatever it costs you to make it.

    A Form 4 is for one that you by at a gun shop,made by a commerical manufacturer that is registered to do so.

    The rules are the same except that you must engrave name,address and a serial number that you assign to it on the can.

    Wow, $900 for a little muffler. Way too much money for what it is. While I wouldn't mind having one it just gives the ATF a reason to come into your house to check the supressor out. I'd rather try to make my own. At least that would be a good way to spend the money on a lathe. By the way is it not legal to have extra washers for your supressor?

    Technically, its not.

    Suppressors around here run anywhere from 300 to around 1000.

    The one I built was tested against one that was a bit over $1000 and mine was quieter.

    Go figure.

    What does an extra washer do? Make it quieter?

    Parts that are intended for use in a suppressor are considered to be a suppressor. Some very cheap home made suppressors use washers as the baffle, but commercial ones do not.

    There is no reason to pay $900 for a suppressor for any gun. Any decent $300-400 suppressor will serve you just fine.

    Ahh. I see. Thanks. He was the only one at the gun show selling them, not too much competition there.

    That's why.

    Here is a good link for very well priced suppressors. I've seen him over on Silencertalk.com. Seems legit and well liked over there. He's based out of OK, so shipping wouldn't be too much.

    I spent the last 1/2 hr checking it out. Good info there. Interesting that Finland doesn't even regulate sound suppressors.

    In fact, Finland's government encourages all its citizens to use sound suppressors, mainly for health reasons and noise pollution control. They are one of the few countries in the leading edge in suppressor technology. 5 million citizens with 4 million personally owned firearms. Finland doesn't regulate suppressors or machine guns.

    Most foreign countries don't have much machine gun or suppressor regulations, but being able to own a firearm in the country is an accomplishment of itself. In Israel, the waiting time for a firearms ownership license is 3 years. But you can carry whatever you want wherever you want. A guy from another forum lives there and carries a M16 commando full auto into medical school with him.
