To own a suppressor in Illinois, you must possess a valid Firearm Owner’s Identification Card (FOID card). You must also be at least 21 years of age. Suppressors are regulated under the National Firearms Act of 1934 and are subject to federal registration and taxation.

To purchase a suppressor, you must first find an individual or business that is licensed to manufacture or deal in NFA firearms. The dealer will help you complete the appropriate forms and submit them to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF). There is a $200 tax per suppressor payable to the ATF. Once your application has been approved, you may pick up your suppressor from the dealer who facilitated the purchase.

In Illinois, it is legal to use a suppressor while hunting. However, you must comply with all other applicable state and federal laws. For example, you may not hunt with an AR-15-style rifle equipped with a suppressor unless the rifle is also registered as an NFA firearm.

The process of obtaining a suppressor in Illinois is relatively simple.

First, you must find an FFL holder who is authorized to conduct NFA transactions in the state. Once you have identified an FFL holder, you will need to provide them with a copy of your trust or corporate documents (if applicable), as well as a copy of your driver’s license or another form of identification. You will also need to provide the FFL holder with a completed ATF Form 4, which can be obtained from the ATF website.

The FFL holder will then submit the completed application to the ATF on your behalf. Once the application has been approved, you will need to pay a $200 tax stamp for each suppressor that you purchase.

Owning a suppressor in Illinois is a relatively straightforward process, though there are a few specific steps that must be taken. The first step is to find an FFL dealer who is also licensed to act as a Class IIImanufacturer. Once you have found a dealer, you will need to complete ATF Form 4 and submit it, along with the $200 transfer tax, to the BATFE. Your local law enforcement agency will also need to provide written approval for the transfer before the suppressor can be released from the manufacturing facility.
