    so its finally time for me to start the process to get my first NFA item. I've decided on AAC's evolution 9. this will go on a sig 226.

    I need a threaded barrel. I want to do this as simply as possible (not really looking for/needing a bar-sto precision fit match barrel)

    and so all I really need is a drop in barrel. I assume this would work? http://www.topgunsupply.com/sig_p226-replacement-barrel-9mm-threaded.html

    I can pretty much drop that in, right? no machining or gun-smithing necessary?

    now, what about those threads. 13.5 X 1 LH. anything wrong with that? is there a thread thats preferred? the AAC makes available multiple threads with their suppressors, right? and I guess 13.5 X 1 LH would be one of them, since its a sig factory replacement barrel which i imagine is fairly common..?

    ok. refresh me on the whole tax stamp process.

    do I buy the suppressor first and then start filling out forms? where does one order the forms?

    I know there is edu somewhere here but I can't seem to find it.

    I'm sure I'll have more questions later.

    Hey.

    Yes, that factory threaded barrel will be just fine.

    There won't be a problem with those threads. AAC makes multiple thread pitches available because not all weapons of like calibers use like threads.

    Tax stamps are ez game.

    Illegally download or buy Quicken Willmaker and make a trust. It's as easy as it seems.

    Then go to titleii.com and fill out a Form 4. You use the Form 3 that the dealer will make available to you to fill out the Form 4. You need like, the dealer's FFL info, the suppressor's serial number, etc etc, but, it's very straight forward. So, yes, you do need to purchase the suppressor first.

    Forming a trust is a necessity. It eliminates the CLEO sign off you would need, fingerprinting, a ton more waiting perhaps, and just a lot of work. People also say that trust transfers go faster than individual transfers. Who the fuck knows? Not me, that's for sure.

    LET ME KNOW IF YOU HAVE ANY MORE QUESTIONS HOMIE

    THE AAC EVO 9 IS LIKE THE CADILLAC OF 9MM CANS

    PM ME IF YOU NEED ANY HELP

    PS - BUY FROM MAJOR-MALFUNCTION OR POLITE SOCIETY INC

    I made the 'purchasing' phase slightly confusing there, if you're already reading, I'm just gonna make this a new post.

    Here's how it goes...if you buy from online/out of state.

    Buy can.

    Supply seller with local FFL ('dealer') information, that you get from your local FFL.

    Wait for form 3 (seller to dealer) to approve.

    Get form 3 from dealer.

    Use the form 3 to fill out a form 4.

    Mail form 4 + declaration of trust (must be notarized) + $200 (personal check, cash, silver certificates, cashier's check, money order, doesn't matter).

    Wait a long, long time.

    ???

    Profit.

    PROTIP: Don't ever buy a can that's not on hand. Especially an AAC. Waiting sucks.

    Yeah, it's below MAP.

    I am pretty sure that it will be 10% on the Evo9, it was 10% on my M42K.

    My M42K form 4 should be back this week

    then my AR will finally be complete jesus fucking christ taking too long

    heard the Element is retarded on pistols but not so hot on rifles, so I'll probably keep the Element on my Paclite and then my Outback2 on my 10/22

    but won't their be a class 3 FFL transfer fee? i.e. like when you buy a gun online and have it shipped to the gun shop, they charge you for teh transfer..
    seems like this would be even higher on class 3 stuff. so like $775 and no transfer fee vs. $725 and a transfer fee would make it seem like it would be near even.

    of course I don't know what the fuck I'm talking about.

    I'll call AAC, but man it seems like sig's own factory replacement threaded barrel should work.

    he mentions the factory sig tactical barrel in the video, I'm pretty sure its the same barrel I am looking to buy.

    "why do you need a silencer" (anyone that asks would call it a silencer)
    "because it's cool!"

    besides the fact that it's neat, why DO you need a suppressor?

    also- I've been eyeing some threaded barrels for the Glock 34 (that I don't currently own); I like the idea of not having to go through the Houston Chief of Police, or Sheriff, or whomever.



    edit: also, you could always just skip the hassle and get a fake suppressor: http://www.ftfindustries.com/Threaded Barrels.htm

    You need to have it shipped to an 07 in your state. The ywill probably charge you $50-$100 for a transfer. But for that, they should also do your paperwork too.

    Shooting without hearing protection is nice, especially when hunting.

    Trusts do not require LEO signoff.

    Rachel from AAC Blog is the hotness.

    Got myself a M4-2K... more than 90 days on my Form 4 now. Heard the average wait's been bumped up to 120.
