How to Purchase a Silencer

Property categories:

A silencer is an NFA item, so its purchase requires a transferring FFL/SOT dealer to facilitate the transaction. It cannot be shipped directly to you. However, even though the process does require a little extra paperwork, it is a fairly simple process.

When you make your purchase through the Silencer Store website, simply type in the name of your FFL/SOT dealer under “company” in the “ship to” address and put their email address in the comments section. Your class 3 dealer will be contacted by XCaliber to send a copy of their FFL/SOT to If you don't already have a dealer in your area, look at our "Dealer Map" for to find an authorized dealer near you.

Once your chosen dealer sends us their license, or you choose one of the dealers on our map, we will begin the process from our end and ship the silencer to your dealer. You will be sent an email letting you know that the silencer has been shipped. Your dealer will help you complete the background check and other paperwork requirements before they can transfer the silencer to you. This process can take from six months to a year.

Also, keep in mind, to be eligible to purchase a silencer you must:

* be a resident of the United States

* be legally eligible to purchase a firearm

* pass a BATFE background check

* be at least 21 years age

*Not live in the following states where it is currently illegal to purchase or possess a silencer: California, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont.


Canceling a placed order before processing will result in a 10% restocking fee. Canceling an order after paperwork has been filed will result in a 50% restocking fee. If you are familiar with silencer purchases, then you understand the process, but if you don't, we suggest you visit your local class 3 dealer before making any silencer purchase.
