Solvent traps legal?

Ah, that makes sense. I remember when they first started being a thing, and thought the premise of it being used to catch cleaning solvents was just silly.
I remember the 'first' one as being able to thread on an oil filter. Tho I wouldn't suggest storing them in the same box.

Yeah, that was my point; the actual NAPA filter has a cellulose core like almost all fuel filters. Of course, these "filters" that go by the same model designation are only similar in external appearance. I suppose someone looked thru a list of auto parts until they found something that looked similar to a suppressor and then ran with it.

Theoretically of course, wouldn't the cellulose core catch fire?

Three arrested for completing solvent traps and selling them across state lines. Honestly the solvent traps are only part of the story but it alludes to feds tracking their purchases and payments.


If you want a silencer pay the tax and don’t risk arrest.

It’s no longer a solvent trap at that point, it is a silencer. So it is a bit disingenuous to continue to label them as solvent traps.

This thread is about the legality surrounding using a solvent trap as a base for a form one, no one is suggesting otherwise. They are nothing more than a bunch of metal parts unless you start machining them.

the men in the story manufactured and sold regulated items. which is of no relevance to the legality of the item originally in question.

Well it is because they built a regulated item. That is one of the things they did but without the stamp that is illegal.

Just like you can build a rifle but not an SBR or fully automatic.

you’re in Oregon and you can get the stamp. Just sayn it doesn’t pay to risk your gun rights

I’m not sure why you quoted my post and didn’t read the information that was already in it?

I have already addressed the fact they were illegally building a regulated item.

I have already addressed the fact that this entire discussion has been about the use of solvent traps as a base for a form 1 build. (BTW yes it is legal to do so).

you can absolutely build an SBR after you file and get an approved form 1. So it seems you lack a bit of information regarding NFA items.

I’m actually in Washington, however I can still legally build a silencer/SBR/SBS after the receipt of an approved form 1.

NOBODY IS SUGGESTING BUILDING AN UNAPPROVED SILENCER, not certain why you seem to think I/or others are suggesting otherwise.

I'm thinking seriously about building one of these, they look like an inexpensive way to acquire something that I'm not sure I will use very often. I want to do it legally of course and have been looking at how to fill out Form 1 online. Is our CLEO in Clark Co Wa Sheriff Atkins?

I havent had a form 1 take more than a month in the last 15 years . I think I have around 20 or more Form 1 silencers . I pretty much have one per host by this point if I include my form 4 cans. Solvent traps if a funny term. No one uses them to trap solvent. There are some pretty innovative "80%" silencer designs out there masquerading as solvent traps..Sometimes I register a silencer then have to buy gun parts to build a gun to fire bullets through it. Thats how I ended up with a 338 Spectre last week.
