    Do you have to have a Class 3 in order to possess and build silencers?

    If I'm not mistaken, you need to have a manufacturer's license.

    Silencers

    To build supressors, you first must have a manufacturers FFL and then a Class 2 SOT Manufacturers license. Class 2 Mfg sell to class 3 dealers who sell to SOT...special occupational tax payers..AKA: Tax stampers.

    If for your own use, in a permitted state, you may file an ATF Form-1 for permission to make your own supressor. Once approved and the $ 200 tax paid, you may then make your own supressor.

    Hope that helps.
