General questions on purchasing a suppressor online:
Purchasing a suppressor online is just too fast and easy to not take advantage of the savings!
Absolutely! It’s basically the exact same process. First, we transfer your suppressor to your local dealer. But unlike a regular gun transfer, your local dealer must also be a Class 3 dealer (SOT). Second, we have to first get approval from the ATF for the transfer by submitting a dealer to dealer (Form 3) transfer. This approval process takes around 1-3 days on average. Once we get the approval back, we ship your suppressor to your dealer.
During the checkout process, you can annotate your dealer’s info in the shipping box or you can just state who your dealer is in the memo box. If you don’t do this, no worries! We will also contact you by email requesting your dealer’s contact email or number. We will then contact your dealer requesting their FFL/SOT. If you do not have a Class 3 Dealer in mind, we will find one for you. We have dealt with thousands of Class 3 dealers across the country, so there is a good chance we already have a Class 3 Dealer in your area on file.
The transfer process to your dealer normally takes approximately 1-3 days. We electronically (Eform) submit our Form 3s. So, once it’s approved, we automatically get the approval back. Once we receive the approval, we usually ship the same day.
You usually start your paperwork once your dealer receives your suppressor. However, you can most definitely knock out your fingerprints and photos while waiting for your dealer to receive your suppressor from us.
In most cases, your dealer does prepare your paperwork. However, if you would like us to prepare your paperwork for you, we can do so for a small fee. Just let us know in the memo box at checkout and we will coordinate this.
No, we do not charge for the Form 3 transfer. However, just like a regular gun transfer, your dealer will probably charge a transfer fee for the handling and storage.
Absolutely! The SS Kiosk system is set up in these dealer’s shops to do transfers too. We have a few customers who utilize this service with our transfers.
It is different considering we will directly handle the transfer to you, including completely filling out your paperwork, scanning your prints on our FBI approved fingerprint machine, taking your photos, and submitting your paperwork for you. We can have you in and out of our shop in less than an hour! Don’t want to drive to our shop? No worries! We can handle your paperwork remotely and ship your suppressor to you once it’s approved!
Absolutely! If you’re a TN resident and we are your transferring dealer, we can mail your suppressor directly to you on approval. This process adds approximately an extra 10-12 days after your approval and will cost you an extra $20 in shipping.
