One of the most common questions we get from customers looking into the showcase on your left in the store is “Are silencers legal?”
Silencers and machine guns, among other items, are regulated federally under the National Firearms Act, enacted on June 26, 1934. The process of purchase is more involved than current state-level regulated firearms, and the wait for processing paperwork can run 6 to 9 months.
Duffy’s carries silencers from a number of different companies. We have done our best to select well built, reliable manufacturers who have proven themselves with customer service.
SBR (Short Barreled Rifle) SBS (Short Barreled Shotgun)
Any rifle with a barrel under 16″ is regulated under the NFA.
Any shotgun with a barrel under 18″ is regulated under the NFA.
Our gunsmith can assist you with professional work to turn your firearm into an SBR or SBS, and our NFA specialist can assist you with the paperwork process.
We deal in a range of sub-machine guns and machine guns. Any machine gun registered with the ATF prior to May 19, 1986 is transferable to civilians.
AOW (Any Other Weapon)
This last category is a catch-all for guns that don’t fit into one of the other specific categories.
Because of the many variables involved in NFA transfers, the fees will be assessed per transaction.
