You will want to talk with the BATFE about transferring the location of a suppressor from one state to another- and you DO need to notify them when taking a Class III to another state.
I am sure that a permanent move will require the ATF's knowledge, but temporary transport to another state... I don't think so. At least it is not mentioned in the ATF site.
Q: Does the registered owner of a destructive device, machine gun, short-barreled shotgun, or short-barreled rifle need authorization to lawfully transport such items interstate? No mention of silencers
Yes, unless the owner is a qualified dealer, manufacturer or importer, or a licensed collector transporting only curios or relics. Prior approval must be obtained, even if the move is temporary. Approval is requested by either submitting a letter containing all necessary information, or by submitting ATF Form 5320.20 to the Bureau of ATF, NFA Branch. Possession of the firearms also must comply with all State and local laws.
