A properly-prepared gun trust has significant advantages for gun owners. It enables the use of NFA-regulated firearms and accessories among trustees, protects against potential future regulatory restrictions, and provides for the orderly transition of ownership upon death.

FACT: An NFA Gun Trust is the best way to purchase silencers and other NFA-regulated items.

The EasyTrust is 50-state legal. The process of ratification will differ by state, but we’ll send you a document detailing the processes you’ll need to follow. We priced the EasyTrust at $129.99 – a fraction of the cost of typical gun trusts – to make it accessible to everyone. It’s a must-have for anyone looking to #FightTheNoise. All EasyTrust sales are final.

Can existing items BE PUT into my new SilencerCo EasyTrust?

A: Yes, but because ownership of the NFA item is being transferred from you, as an individual, to the trust, you must file a Form 4 and pay the $200 tax. Fortunately, since you are already the owner, you can maintain possession of the item while the transfer is processing.

Are there limitations as to who I can add as a trustee?

A: Yes. If an individual is prohibited by federal, state, or local law from possessing a suppressor due to age, felony convictions, or other reasons, they cannot be added as a trustee. Only individuals legally allowed to purchase and possess NFA items may be added to the trust.

What if I want to add my child to my trust?

A: So long as he or she is of the legal age as defined by your state to possess a suppressor and can sign and have their signature notarized, they can be added to your trust. If they are below the legal age for NFA item possession in your state, you may still add them as a beneficiary, not a trustee.

Can I add someone who lives out of state as a trustee?

A: Yes. Once you have added them to the trust, the new trustee will need to sign and have the trust notarized, and then send a copy back to you for your records.

NOTE: Adding someone who lives in a non-NFA-friendly state to your trust does not make them eligible to possess NFA items in that state. They can, however, possess the items while they are in an NFA-friendly state. Local law supersedes federal law in this regard; obey all local laws.

I thought this trust was legal in 50 states?

A: Yes, this is a 50-state-legal trust, meaning it fits within all federal guidelines pertaining to NFA trusts. With that said, some states and metropolitan areas have specific restrictions on NFA items that you will need to obey.

Is there a limit to the number of people I can add to my trust?

A: Theoretically, no. SilencerCo’s EasyTrust allows entry of 8 trustees initially, but there is technically no limit to the number of additional trustees you can add through amendments to your trust.

How do I make an amendment to my EasyTrust?

A: At some point you will no doubt need to add an item, add a trustee, remove a trustee, or make other adjustments to your trust. To do so, type up the changes and label them accordingly (e.g. Amendment 1, Amendment 2, etc.). After each Amendment, note that “The trust continues from original date of creation” so that it is clear all preceding information is still relevant. We recommend that you then print out the trust and have each amendment notarized, however, specific notarization requirements vary by state.

What is this mention of one US dollar in the Schedule A?

A: In order for a trust to be created, there must be something held by the trust (corpus). Since when you first purchase the trust you have not yet added any items to it, an arbitrary possession must be assigned – hence the mention of $1. We have gone ahead and assigned this $1 as an item that is held by the trust so that it can be legally created.
