Traveling Through MD with Suppressed AR Pistol?

Hello all. Just have a quick question for those of you more well versed in MD laws than myself. I live in NC and will be traveling North through MD tomorrow evening. I like to keep a rifle caliber in my vehicle when traveling and I'm wondering if I can legally travel through MD with a suppressed home built AR pistol chambered in .300BLK. It is a full feature firearm and has 30 round magazines as we have no restrictions in NC. I will of course have a copy of my tax stamp and unload & lock away the gun in a case (mags/ammo in separate case) located in the trunk prior to crossing MD state lines as I understand that is a requirement for pistols. Attached is a photo of the pistol in question. Thanks for your help!

You're plan sounds fine to me. Locked and unloaded.

Are you required to notify the atf if you are going to a different state with a suppressor?

I am confused about the part where you say "home built AR pistol chambered in .300BLK. It is a full feature rifle..."

Is this a rifle (SBR) or pistol? I see an AR pistol with a brace. An SBR would probably not be ok since SBRs have extra full stupid rules in MD. If this is a pistol you are gtg.

You are good in MD. If you plan on going through DE, I believe suppressors are illegal there.

You said you're going through MD but what is your destination state?

If it's a pistol, OP would not be allowed to stop right? If it's an SBR it would be okay.

SBRs are pistols for transport regulation and rifles for configuration regulations ( so has to be >29" OAL etc).

That said, stopping for gas, bathroom, etc temporarily ought to be ok.
