I was tossing around the idea of getting a form 1 so I could make 1 suppressor for myself. But being as it was going to be my first one, I figured I would buy a really good suppressor, and then use that as the "standard". When doing a form 1 all you do is pay the $200 for the tax stamp. Then when you get your paperwork back you are able to start on the construction of your product.
The license to manufacture suppressors are something like $15,000 for the year, and a crap ton of paperwork, and background checks. So that is not something that I want to even consider!
Though I am tossing around the idea of cutting the barrel back to 16" and making her nice and short
