You want to tell me how you can LEGALLY buy, and own an NFA item at 18?
The way the US Code works is that anything is legal unless there is a law against it. Check out title 18 chapter 44 section 922, unlawful acts.
Quote:
(b) It shall be unlawful for any licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to sell or deliver— (1) any firearm or ammunition to any individual who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe is less than eighteen years of age, and, if the firearm or ammunition is other than a shotgun or rifle, or ammunition for a shotgun or rifle, to any individual who the licensee knows or has reasonable cause to believe is less than twenty-one years of age;
This means an 18-20 year old can buy a long gun from a licensed dealer but not anything else including a silencer.
Title 27 CFR part 479.86;
Quote:
§ 479.86 Action on application.
The Director will consider a completed and properly executed application, Form 4 (Firearms), to transfer a firearm.
I have never heard of anyone being denied a transfer as long as the forms were filled out correctly. Have you? If there are no federal laws prohibiting possession of a silencer by an 18 year old person, then the BATFE is going to approve the transfer.

Opinions vary by quoting the actual law is much more impressive than using bold text or caps.
