Did the ATF Just Make Silencer Applications Impossible?
The ATF Form 1(ATF Form 5320.1) is the application to make and register a firearm, recently the ATF has denied 850 of these applications from the makers of suppressors. This form is intended for those who are not already a licensed manufacturer of NFA firearms.
These denials were made due to changes in ATF policy regarding suppressor “parts kits”. The ATF is alleging that they were denying the applications of those looking to make “parts kits” for suppressors.
