A bit confused?

Can someone explain to me the difference between a class III (title 2) weapon and a NFA weapon?

NFA/Class III

NFA, National Firearms Act, Type II/III. I thought that type II/III were contained within the NFA; yes, they are.. Is this a "metaphor". I believe we have the answer somewhere.

I'm looking into LEGALLY buying a suppresor here in texas. I know that they are legal for individuals to own. Just trying to get all the info before I begin the process.

The first one passed in 1934 and was actually a part of the Tax Code (technically known as Chapter 53 of the Internal Revenue Code, 26 U.S.C. § 5801 through 26 U.S.C. § 5872)
Title 1 firearms are long guns(rifles and shotguns), handguns, firearm frames or receivers. most NFA weapons are also title 1 firearms. Title 2 weapons are also NFA weapons. Title 2 of the 1968 Gun Control Act is the National Firearms Act (26 USC sec. 5801 et seq.), hence NFA. Title 1 is
generally called the Gun Control Act, (18 USC sec. 921 et seq.).
NFA weapons are sometimes called class 3 weapons, because a class
3 SOT (special occupational tax) is needed to deal in NFA weapons.
My local gunshop calls it the Class 3 Tax Stamp.
The above, with the exception of that last sentence, was taken from the first website listed below and tons of other resources can be found at the second website listed below

That's just the first hurdle, because state and local laws also need to be considered.
