C&R suppressors?

Is there a particular advantage or special treatment of C&R aged suppressors? I know they died off en masse here after the passage of the NFA--as such was the intention-- but they didn't totally blink out of existence. I gather there were quite a few made during WWII and also lots in other countries because they have had no such artificially stunted relationship with them as we have here. There must be a few of them out there at very least. Is it easier to go about grabbing one of such with a C&R?

This is of course incorrect... C&R Suppressors do exist... although there are not many... any suppressor that is registered with the ATF and is older than 50 years old is a C&R.

Even with C&R NFA goods, the transfer process is esstntially the same. The major difference being that they can be transferred between C&R FFL holders without the need to use a C3 dealer regardless of the location of buyer and seller.
