Best Place to Buy Silencers / Suppressors

Yes, Silencers are LEGAL.

Mister Guns is the leader in silencer sales in Dallas.  Our gun shop is hands down the best place to buy silencers.  We have been selling silencers in our Plano store and online since before just about anyone else in the Dallas area.  Over time we have become a one stop silencer and NFA shop, with staff specialized in the niche.  We do in house prints, in house photos, in house trusts, we have silencers in stock, and can draw from massive supply of same day serial numbers for practically any suppressor you can imagine.  90% of the time, any silencer you want can be sold to you and your paperwork done and sent the same day. (You still have to wait on the government to process it of course – you don’t leave with it the same day.)

Silencer Purchasing Process

We’re here to help. Because we sell more silencers than anyone in Dallas, we are pros at making it easy.  People spend tons of time reading online and trying to figure out the process, which is completely unnecessary.  Our volume is such that our prices are as good as anywhere on the internet, and we can teach people in 15 minutes what it will take them weeks to figure out on their own.  

Basically with us, the process is “sign here”, then we take prints and photos and you’re done.  There is no simpler way to buy.  We do everything for you.

On the rest of this page we have listed information about gun suppressors to help inform people, but you don’t need to know any of it.  We can explain it all in minutes, or better yet, just do it and save you the trouble.

Why do I want a suppressor?

  • Because guns are super loud.  Once you start running silencers on guns, there’s no going back.  It’s just so much better.  Imagine walking around barefooted your whole life and someone gives you shoes.  It’s that much of a difference
  • Recoil reduction.  Most of the time a silencer will tame the beast.  Silencers allow orderly dissipation of gas and pressure from the muzzle, which is what makes the gun quieter, but has a side effect of reducing “kick.”
  • They are cool.  I mean.  Come on.  It’s a silencer.

Buying Silencers (or anything NFA) is Easy

It really is.  How do you buy a Silencer?

  • Live in one of the many states that allow it (Texas, does, of course)
  • Be able to buy a firearm.  If you can buy a pistol you can buy a suppressor
  • Be a US resident
  • Pass an ATF background check (the same as any other gun)
  • Be 21 years old

Here is a nice guide to silencers from SilencerCo, one of the leaders in the Silencer business.  But remember.  We do all of this for you.

Trust versus Individual

We get this question a lot.  Before what is known as “41F”, the ATF ruling that made some trust changes, one of the biggest positives of a trust was that you didn’t need a local Chief Law Enforcement (CLEO) signature on your ATF form.  Two of the biggest 41F changes were that now, you just notify them (send them a letter – we do this for you) and now all “responsible parties” on the trust have to send in fingerprints and photos. In the age of individuals now not requiring local CLEO signatures, why would you still want a trust?  Our advice is to do it anyway.  Especially when we do it so cheaply for you.

Trust Benefits

  1. It’s not just you.  You can add or remove people at any time that may be in possession of the item.  Have kids, wives, siblings, friends, or others you may want to allow use of your silencer?  Put them on the trust.
  2. If something happens to you, it’s way, way easier to deal with the item.  Your heirs or would have been trustees don’t have to learn the NFA nuances.

Individual Benefits

  1. No trust costs (ours are cheap, though)
  2. The paperwork is a little simpler (but remember we do it for you) 

Mister Guns, still doesn’t recommend filing as an individual unless you have no one ever that you plan on using your silencer.  Go with a trust.  With no more money than we make, it’s not a profit incentive on our end.  We just want to make your life easier.

Silencer FAQ

  • Do I need a Class 3 License?
    There’s no such thing.  You don’t need any special license.  You fill out the form (we do it for you), you pay a tax, and you wait.  You receive a tax stamp back on your form and that is all the proof one needs.  You do this for each individual silencer.

  • Are silencers legal?
    Yep.  If you can own a pistol, you can own a silencer

  • I heard one silencer can work for many guns?
    Yep to this too.  For the most part, you can run any smaller bullet through a larger caliber silencer.  For example a 45 caliber suppressor can be used for 9mm, or a 30 caliber silencer can be used for a .270.  Generally speaking, a good collection for most people would be a .45 silencer, a .30 caliber rifle silencer, and a .22 can.  While you could conceivably run .22 through either, .22 tends to run nasty and the cans can be disassembled, plus the .22 specific silencers are small and light instead of having a giant pistol or rifle can on a small firearm.  You will want a separate pistol and rifle suppressor in most cases, though, because most pistol silencers won’t handle rifle pressures.

  • Is my gun gonna go pew like in the James Bond movies?
    No.  Guns are loud.  Just like when you muffle a car, it doesn’t make the car silent; it makes it far less annoying.  Guns are the same way.  In most cases you can shoot a silenced firearm without hearing protection (which we don’t recommend for safety’s sake).  Imagine, though, being in the woods and taking a shot at a deer and the report from the rifle is just in the “loud” range instead of the “painful, holy crap my ears are ringing for two days” range.   Of course, there are some ammunition and caliber choices that are far quieter than others. The bolt noise on a .22 with subsonic ammunition is louder than the actual shot, but a 300 win mag will never be quiet, no matter what, even though a silencer still helps a lot.

  • I heard the ATF can show up any time to inspect me…
    Nonsense.  Silencer buyers give up no rights whatsoever.

  • What’s the difference between a silencer and a suppressor?
    Some people like to sound cool and correct people using one term or the other.  You’ll never get that from us.  We use those terms and “can” interchangeably.  They mean the same thing.

  • How do I get the silencer on my gun?
    Rifles – Basically, there are two types of connections.  Direct thread – where the can attaches directly to the barrel – or brake attachment – where one uses a muzzle device such as a brake or flash hider, and the silencer attaches to that.  The latter is the most common because a person can use one silencer on multiple guns in a “quick detach” fashion.

    Pistols – Pistols have many different thread patterns.  Most pistol silencers have “boosters” or  “pistons”, properly called a Nielsen device that allows the  silencer to deal with the movement of the barrel.  The piston has the correct thread pattern inside and has a spring around it.  These are interchangeable in most pistol suppressors for a reasonable cost.  They thread directly onto the barrel. If your gun isn’t threaded, most handguns have aftermarket barrels.  Most rifles will require machining, usually at a pretty reasonable cost, to add a can to an unthreaded gun.  Otherwise rifles and pistols can be purchased with threaded barrels intentionally to begin with.

  • Doesn’t it take forever to get a silencer?
    I know this is hard to believe, but sometimes the US government can be inefficient.   Wait times vary wildly.  It does take a while.  Contact Mister Guns to find out what they are running at the moment.
