Can the ATF charge you for having an unregistered suppressor for an?

Can the ATF charge you for having an unregistered suppressor for an airsoft gun (since in theory it could be transferred to a firearm)? Real suppressors dont serve any purpose for airsoft guns. The suppressors marketed for airsoft are mock suppressors. A mock suppressor is not an NFA-regulated item because even if you transferred it to a real firearm, it doesnt actually do anything. Mock Silencers in Airsoft don't affect the loudness of the muzzle report coming from your Airsoft gun, but they CAN really change the appearance of your gun. They also serve as a way to nicely cover up a longer Upgrade Inner Barrel. These are also known as Mock Suppressors and Barrel Extensions. Accessories & Parts, Mock Silencer If you had a functional suppressor that would in fact actually drop the decibel level of a gunshot, then it would be an NFA-regulated item even if it was attached to an airsoft gun instead of a firearm. There are indeed some devices that meet that criteria. Are Paintball and/or Airgun Sound Suppressers NFA firearms?
