This post is a quick outline of how to buy a silencer / suppressor. The process is not as bad as its made out to be, infact its quit easy. Just follow the steps one at a time and before you know it, the transfer paperwork is done. Now just sit back for the long slow wait for BATFE NFA Branch to do its thing.
Your choice to purchase NFA items is protected by the Second Amendment. If you have never experienced the fun and pride in being an NFA firearm or suppressor owner, give an NFA item a try. Many ranges throughout the United States offer the chance to shoot full-auto machine guns, shortbarreled rifles and suppressors, and more individuals are buying them every day. It’s all up to you to take the next step toward ownership. Please let us know how we may be of assistance, and thank you!
Barring certain federal, state, or local prohibitions, an individual who is at least 21 years of age and currently able to purchase and possess any non-NFA firearms will also be eligible to purchase an NFA firearm from an NFA dealer.
The information on this page is for reference purposes only and not intended to be used as legal advice. Some states permit all types of NFA items, other states permit only certain types, and a few states do not permit NFA firearms or suppressors.
