And if it weren't for the NFA, suppressors wouldn't cost so darned much to begin with. But no one's going to spend $200 on a tax stamp for a $100 suppressor, so the suppressors are priced higher to make them "worthwhile".

Note that I'm not saying the price is jacked up just because they can - a lot of it that suppressors for the U.S. market are designed to last a long time, since the tax stamp makes them so expensive to replace. So we have suppressors that are engineered extremely well, can often be disassembled for cleaning, and are made out of stuff like titanium or inconel.
