8 states currently do not allow individuals to own silencers: California, Delaware, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachussetts, New York, New Jersey, and Rhode Island.
*If you are an FFL dealer, manufacturer, peace officer, or member of a law enforcement agency or other government agency, there are additional states where you can own a silencer.
Choosing a silencer can be a daunting task, but once you have identified the one that’s right for you based on caliber, fit, and function, we work hard to make the process as easy as possible for you.
We will help you file the required forms to obtain your tax stamp. For online purchases, we will contact you via phone to set up a time to complete the forms. In-person purchases can be scheduled by calling (208) 516-9193.
We will contact the Class 3 dealer you’ve chosen and arrange to have the silencer you purchased transferred to them. They will help you fill out the required forms to obtain your tax stamp. (Please be aware that some Class 3 dealers charge fees for transfers and for filling out the forms, so please check with them so that you understand what fees they may charge.)
Whether you work with us or with a Class 3 dealer of your choosing, owning a silencer requires that you file a Form 4 with the ATF. This form requires some personal information as well as the following items:
$200 for tax stamp payable to the ATF by credit card
2 FD-258 fingerprint cards completed with your prints
2 photos of yourself Passport style — 2×2 inches
The Form 4 can now be filed electronically with an approximate wait time of 90 days.
Waiting for the ATF to approve your application can be the hardest part of this process—who likes to wait? Now that the form can be filed electronically, the ATF estimates the wait time to be 90 days.
Once your application has been approved, your FFL will contact you about picking up your silencer. Your FFL will have you complete a Form 4473, which is a standard ATF form for transferring firearms. Once this form is completed, your FFL can legally transfer the silencer to you along with your tax stamp, which you will need to keep in a safe place. We recommend making a digital copy on your phone so that you have it with you when you go shooting.
The best thing invented since sliced bread is Mission Silencers new .22LR suppressors.
Ive been running the new Mission Silencers Honeycomb XL and Compact. It's amazing how well these things reduce recoil, back pressure, and most importantly, sound signature!
Went to the range with Lonnie, the creator of Mission Silencers. This guy is a whole lot of fun and loves what he has created. We shot 5.56 and 6.5 without hearing protection. Even rapid-fire was hearing safe! The .22 lr was silent. Hearing the high velocity .22 lr cut through the air without a crack was awesome. These are definitely the best silencers I've ever seen.
