To purchase a silencer, the consumer must complete a trust document (if filing via trust), provide two sets of fingerprints on FBI FD-258 cards, and provide one 2×2 passport-style photo taken within the past year. If more than one responsible person on trust, two sets of fingerprints and one photo are required for each responsible person. Additionally, each person listed must be present in-store and sign a questionnaire. Lastly, a $200 tax stamp payment addressed to BATFE (credit card, personal check, money order, cashier’s check) is needed.
A trust may be set up at the expense of $100 without the purchase of a firearm or silencer. The fee is reduced to $50 with a purchase of a firearm/silencer. A trust may be established for free with the purchase of two firearms.
