There is no waiting period or registration required to purchase a suppressor in West Virginia. However, anyone who wishes to use a suppressor while hunting must apply to the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources (WVDNR) and receive written permission from the Director before using the suppressor.

To purchase a suppressor in West Virginia, you must be 21 years of age or older and have no felony convictions. You can purchase a suppressor from a licensed manufacturer, dealer, or individual. If you purchase from an individual, you must do so through a licensed firearms dealer.

When purchasing a suppressor, you will need to complete ATF Form 4 and pay the tax stamp fee of $200. Form 4 must be accompanied by photographs and fingerprints. The process usually takes between 4 and 6 months. Once the suppressor is approved, it will be shipped to your chosen dealer.

You are not required to register your suppressor with the state of West Virginia. However, you must keep records of the purchase, transfer, and ownership of the suppressor by federal law.

There is no single answer to this question as the process for purchasing a suppressor (or any other firearm) varies from state to state. However, in general, the process for purchasing a suppressor in West Virginia will involve completing an application with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF), passing a background check, and paying a tax.

Before you begin the process of purchasing a suppressor, it is important to know that there are some restrictions on who can own one. For example, individuals who have been convicted of a felony or domestic violence are not allowed to own a suppressor. Additionally, some states also have additional restrictions on owning suppressors.

Assuming you are eligible to own a suppressor, the first step in the process is to complete an ATF Form 4. This form is used to request permission from the ATF to make or transfer a firearm. On the form, you will need to provide information about yourself as well as the suppressor you wish to purchase.

Once the ATF Form 4 is submitted, the agency will conduct a background check on you. If everything checks out, they will approve your application and issue you a tax stamp. The tax stamp is required to legally possess the suppressor. In West Virginia, the cost of the tax stamp is $200.

With your tax stamp in hand, you are now able to purchase a suppressor from a licensed dealer. When you make the purchase, you will need to fill out an ATF Form 4473. This form is used to conduct a background check on the buyer of a firearm.

Once you have completed the purchase, you will need to submit your paperwork to the ATF for their records. Congratulations, you are now the proud owner of a suppressor!

Obtaining a suppressor in West Virginia is a relatively simple process. There are a few different ways to go about it, but the most common is to simply purchase one from a federally licensed firearms dealer. Transferring ownership of the suppressor then follows the same process as any other firearm transfer in the state.

The first step is to submit an ATF Form 4 “ Application for Tax Paid Transfer and Registration of Firearm”. This form can be found on the ATF’s website or through your local firearms dealer. Along with this form, you will need to include two photographs of the applicant, an FBI fingerprint card, and a $200 check or money order for the tax stamp. You will also need to have the local chief law enforcement officer (CLEO) sign the form.

Once the ATF Form 4 is completed and filed, you will need to wait for approval from the ATF. This process can take several months. Once approved, you will be able to take possession of your suppressor and enjoy all the benefits that come with owning one!
