Trust setup already
I had a trust made in '06, living in Oklahoma. I now want a addendum added for a suppressor and I currently reside in Texas. Do I now find suppressor, pay for it, find a Class III FFL, and somewhere during process have attorney add silencer to my trust?
I've gone to BATF and so on, googled others but, I could use some "friendly forum" advice. I would like to legally make suppressors for my own use, with the proper licenses/paperwork etc. I'm not in a big hurry wanting to follow proper channels and do as much paperwork/legwork myself as possible.

I had my dealer order the suppressor and I had to pay for it then. When the suppressor is shipped to him, he and I fill out Form 4, which he mails it, along with a copy of my trust, and a check for $200, to the ATF.

When the form is approved, it is sent back to the dealer who will notify me and turn the suppressor over to me along with the Form 4 and the affixed tax stamp.

I'm not sure how things go if you plan to manufacture a suppressor, but if you buy one you should be able to do a revised "Schedule A" yourself, adding the suppressor to it, then when the suppressor comes in, you'll give the dealer a copy of the trust, the revised schedule A indicating the suppressor, and a check to ATF for $200. He'll take it all and send it in with the Form 4, and all that's left is the long wait.

If you feel more comfortable by running the schedule A revision by your lawyer to verify, by all means have a chat with him/her.

Thank you for the reply, it was excellant advice. I have another question, I understand it's a $200.00 fee for each dealer transfer per suppressor, but you can get a manufacture stamp for personal use it's $200.00, and you can make multiple suppressors, again, for personal use or trust use.
