When you are ready to setup your trust, use the lawyer we trust:
18 U.S.C. § 921(a)(24) defines a silencer as,
any device for silencing, muffling, or diminishing the report of a portable firearm, including any combination of parts, designed or redesigned, and intended for use in assembling or fabricating a firearm silencer or firearm muffler, and any part intended only for use in such assembly or fabrication.
Each oil filter would need to be serialized and registered. Once the filter wears out (which won’t take long), the user would need to file another Form 1 and pay another $200 to comply with the law.
Contrary to the marketing claims being made, the adapter is not the registered part–the device that reduces the report is.
Furthermore, the NFRTR (the ATF registry) is known to have errors, and ready access to the stamp may be necessary to confirm the legality of a weapon in your possession.
In truth, they do reduce the report, but they do not silence it. Hollywood is a city built on lies.
The ATF also has a good FAQ here on the general regulations.
