    Hopefully this is the right area to post. Any ideas on if one was to move to Arizona from Oregon, how much trouble is it to bring suppressor into to state with legal tax stamp for oregon ownership?

    Do you already own it? If so, all you have to do is send the ATF a letter, there is no cost involved.

    If you are purchasing from a person in Arizona (that is already on a Form 4), it gets pretty expensive. They have to do a Form 4 transfer to your dealer ($200 & 6 mo), then YOU have to do the same from your dealer. Total would be $400 & about a year.

    Define move?

    You already own it? If so bring it with you. ATF requests you send them an updated address but you don't have to.

    If it is coming form a dealer then it needs to be transferred like normal.

    IF it is coming from another private individual it will be as described above.

    Nwcid is right: There is no legal requirement to notify the ATF on suppressors. All other class 3 things do however.

    Be VERRY careful driving through California, as it seems that suppressors are illegal there. You can ship it to yourself I believe, or you can fly with it the same way you would with firearms. Don't drive through Cali on the way though.

    Not quite. You do not need a http://www.atf.gov/forms/download/atf-f-5320-20.pdf for ANY intrastate transport of any NFA item. For any NFA item other then Silencer and AOW you have to fill out a 5320-20 for interstate transport. If you are moving intrastate with any NFA item or interstate with Silencer or AOW the ATF requests you to submit a 5320-20.

    Silencers are only legal for "agencies" in CA. Yes it is best to avoid states where you items are not allow. In theory the 1986 FOPA should protect you but I would not bet on it 100% if it can be avoided.

    Ah, forgot about AOW.

    FOPA has been read to prevent you from being able to stop for gas/food/the night in a prohibited state by a number of police forces. If driving, avoid CA.

    If driving in CA, simply avoid getting pulled over. ;)

    Not to split hairs, but you said "intrastate" transport when I think you meant "interstate". I just wanted to point that out in case someone reads that and runs with it. Words mean THINGS concerning NFA items.


    Intrastate- destination remains within the State of origin.

    Interstate- destination is across State lines into another State from the State of origin.

    Nope, said it correctly. You do NOT need an 5320.20 for intrastate (in state) transport of any NFA item.
