Although it won’t take effect until July 13, 2016, the much-anticipated ATF 41F ruling regarding gun suppressor applications is already having an impact on the silencer industry. Effectively, it brings the process of applying for a silencer closer to that of firearms. The ruling will bring many new changes to the application process, including:

  • Applications for firearm suppressors will no longer need chief law enforcement officer (CLEO). Instead of a signature, there will be a notification requirement
  • Trust or corporation applications will be required to use a new form 5320.23 for all responsible persons. The form includes a requirement for a recent passport photo
  • Fingerprints will also be required for suppressor and other NFA purchases using trusts or corporations
  • All pending applications from before July 13, 2016 will be grandfathered under the existing rules
  • There is specifically no requirement to notify the NFA Branch if you add or remove responsible persons after getting an approval

  1. Thanks for all you do and let’s not forget those responsible for all of this: Jeff “41F” Folloder and his gang of cronies at the NFATCA.

    Boycott them and every website related to them!
