Hello, I have a friend... any ways went to the gun range and was shooting and zeroing in a new build, Was shooting .22 55 grain lead and FMJ out of a new build ar-15 with 20 inch .223 wilde barrel using .22 conversion bolt kit, Anyways It also have this 4ish inch compensator that has a bunch of holes in angled forward. solid piece of metal that is the same circumference as the barrel. no baffles in the flash hider/ compensator. First time shooting this new build. and its really quiet. Like thought first few rounds were miss fires. Granted the guys in range were shooting .308 monster rifles. and I use plugs and ears. So the range guy came over after shooting and was like what kind of flash hider was used. Not really sure was a bought 20+ years ago used and first time using it, but now used on this rifle. My question is this considered a regulated item that needs a tax stamp? Range guy said should not be an issue. But when it was brought up made me wonder, I'm just asking incase it is an issue. Looked up ATF definition and its not really clear what is a silencer suppressors item that needs a tax stamp.
