Default Suppressor

Bit the bullet tonight and ordered a suppressor for my 6.8. Now the long wait begins. Maybe by next hunting season it will be a quiet shooter.

what all is involved with that? did you have to get your barrel threaded or anything? and can anyone buy one? seems like I thought I remember talk about a tax stamp or something? what rifle do you have? looking into a 6.8 myself.

Go to a Class III dealer, pick out a can, pay him for the can and the $200 for the stamp, they will do the paperwork, and wait 10-12 months to get it back. Hoping they pass the Hearing Protection Act soon and they wouldn't require a stamp.

It's pretty much a giving that it will pass just more of a question when.

I went down to Mike's and told him which one I wanted. Put the deposit down and now have to wait for it to come in. Once it comes in I have to pay it off and send my form 4 in with $200 for the tax stamp. Then the wait really begins.
Rifle is an AR so barrel is already threaded, just have to change gas block once I put it on.
I didn't want to wait for the HPA to pass just because who knows when that will actually happen.

From what I've read, if it does pass then I should get the stamp fee back as a tax credit.
