When is a Muzzle Brake an Unregistered Silencer?
« on: August 31, 2016, 04:03:41 PM »
When is a muzzle brake an unregistered silencer?

Is it when the gas is dispersed by a certain port?

Is it when the brake is a certain length?

Is it simply when the BATFE says so?

I guess this guy didn't get the message with the first conviction and 6mo probation.

Be sure and read the screen shot of his eBay ad where he discusses the "Low tone".

As wrong as the law is, it is the law.

This man is going to jail because he ignored it. It's something to think about when gathering parts for a solvent trap suppressor or a home built suppressor.

The real question is why is this a silencer part and not just a long muzzle brake?

At what point does it change from a muzzle brake to a silencer change from a muzzle brake to a silencer part?

Is the standard the point at which there is no more gas impacting the muzzle brake ports?

Is it when it's too long?

The batf has a history of seizing these vendors credit card records, invoices, emails and cash receipts and then going and visiting everyone that bought something online.   If if the convicted felon sold these on eBay, which he obviously did, the BATFE will subpoena the eBay records and track down each of those purchasers. If he sold them on other online sales forms, they will subpoena those records and track the buyers down.

My guess is that even if the brake was bought face to face with a credit card they will be calling and visiting these buyers and demanding the return of the parts unless that customer has an approved form 1.

I advise my www.TexasGunTrust.com clients to wait for the approved form 1 to begin accumulationing the parts for their suppressors build.

I keep waiting for something to happen to all these "solvent trap" guys that keep putting themselves on youtube.

A buddy asked me about it...... By the time I was finished explaining how stupid it was he had his trust filled out and suppressor ordered. Lol.

Have you ever looked around at the group of people you are in and thought, "If the Zombie Apocalypse happens right now, this is what I have to work with."?
