Silencer purchase instructions

Silencer purchase instructions



A silencer or (suppressor) is an NFA item that is regulated by the BATFE (ATF), like machine guns, short barrel rifles, and short barrel shot guns. A silencer purchase requires a transferring FFL/SOT dealer to facilitate the transaction and cannot be shipped directly to you unless you are a class 3 dealer. So you will have to find a local class 3 dealer in your area to facilitate your purchase from us. Even though the process does require a little extra paperwork and a waiting period, it is a fairly simple process.

When you make your purchase through our website, simply list the name of your local FFL/SOT dealer in the “Order Comments” section along with their physical address, phone number and email address. After your purchase you will receive a confirmation email with your chosen dealer’s information in the order comment section. Please reply to this email to verify that all information on your chosen dealer is correct. After your confirmation, your local class 3 dealer will be contacted by Twin Tech Tactical to send a copy of their FFL/SOT to us at sales@twintechtactical.com so the transfer process can begin.

A quick internet search with your favorite search engine for class 3 dealers in your area should give you a list of dealers in your area that are authorized to make this transaction.

Once your chosen dealer sends us their license, we will begin the process from our end and ship the silencer to your chosen 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. Your chosen dealer will also collect a transfer fee and the $200 SOT tax from you that the ATF requires. This process can take from six months to a year.

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

1. 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.

2. Be a legal resident of the United States.

3. Pass a BATFE background check.

4. Be at least 21 years age.

5. Be legally eligible to purchase a firearm.

Canceling a placed order before processing will result in a $15 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.
