Money Back Guarantee? Silencer Shop Offers Customers A Way Out

Silencer Shop Money Back

Besides the inevitable wait, National Firearms Act (NFA) purchases are plagued by the unknown pitfalls of blind faith. Specifically with regard to silencers, consumers are often left to internet rumblings and local gun shop advice to make what ends up being basically a lifetime investment. But what happens if you wait 9-12 months for that $200 stamp and you find out that silencer you bought when your kids were in a different grade turns out to meet none of your expectations? You’re stuck. However, Silencer Shop is rolling out a program that will give consumers a way out – a money back guarantee if the suppressor doesn’t meet any of their needs.

Obviously there are some stipulations, but to be given a second chance at a forever purchase takes a little bit of the worry away from stamp collectors. Not to mention the potential for a used market for those buyers looking for a good deal.

Catch all the program details below.

Silencer Shop Satisfaction Money Back Guarantee


If you are not 100% satisfied with your suppressor after your Form 4 is approved, you may return it to Silencer Shop for a full refund (including tax stamp) within 90 days of your Form 4 approval date. All eligible items have a [LOGO] mark printed in box 3a. of the Form 4 submission.

Additionally, the following terms and conditions apply:

  • This offer only applies after the Form 4 is approved by the BATFE. Suppressor orders cannot be canceled or refunded while the Form 4 is pending.
  • Any promotional items earned as part of the original purchase (e.g., gift certificates, free accessories, etc.) will be deducted from the refunded amount.
  • Guarantee applies to all Powered By Silencer Shop suppressors purchased from Silencer Shop. This includes suppressors purchased from your local Powered By Silencer Shop dealer! (Assuming they got the suppressor from us.)
    o You can easily determine if your purchase qualifies by looking for the [LOGO] mark in box 3a. of your Form 4 submission when you sign digitally.
  • To receive a full refund, all respective accessories, cases, manuals, and original packaging must accompany your returned silencer.
  • To process a return, you must first contact Silencer Shop to receive a return authorization number and to begin the form rescission process. At that time, you will receive instructions on how and when to return the suppressor. Following these instructions is required.
  • BATFE approval might be required before the suppressor can be returned to Silencer Shop. Silencer Shop is not responsible for any delays caused by BATFE.
  • For purchases made directly from a Powered By Silencer Shop dealer, a purchase receipt will be required, and the refund amount may be limited to the lesser of either the suppressor’s listed MSRP or the dealer’s listed online price.
  • The refund will be given once Silencer Shop receives said suppressor.
  • Note: Silencer Shop reserves the right to modify this guarantee at any time without notice. Moreover, Silencer Shop


Silencer Shop will accept returns for all accessory items within 30 days of your purchase, provided the accessories are unused (i.e., new condition) and received in the original packaging.

  • Haulin’ Oats

    Silencer shop was nice in doing this but I think I’ll wait till the Hearing protection act passes and removes the hassle of buying and selling my mistakes.

    • PK

      Sentiments like this are why this sort of offer has come up, I bet. Well, to each his own.

  • Raptor Fred

    That’s one hell of a good thing they are doing. Props to Silencer Shop!

    • PK

      No kidding! I never thought I’d see a return policy on NFA items…

  • Rogertc1

    I will wait. Too many registration hassles. Fingerprinting, photos, sheriff’s approval,and above all. I don’t want to get a Trust.

    • Gary Kirk

      You no longer need Cleo’s approval, You only need to notify them of the
      purchase.. And the rest isn’t that bad, but the waiting sucks

      • Rogertc1

        Each state is different. And i am old

        • Sunshine_Shooter

          Then you should file today, before you get any older.

    • Duray

      You don’t have to do a trust, you no longer need sheriff approval, and a good dealer can handle the fingerprints and photos digitally, instantly, in house. Just buy the suppressor.

      • RSG

        Except without a trust, having other family members in sole possession of the can, among other issues, is a problem for most. If/when the HPA passes, all the NFA issues disappear, which includes not being on a federal registry. Again, for most folks, imo, a suppressor is something that they’d buy at much cheaper pricing and only if it’s convenient. It’s not “must have”. That would change when only a 4473 is required. And even then, private sales would be totally “off the books”.

        • David Silverstein

          Why would a 4473 be needed for a suppressor if the HPA passes? It’s an NFA item, but not a firearm. Am I missing something?

          • RSG

            The HPA delists as NFA but classified it as a “firearm” controlled by NICS and the 4473

          • David Silverstein

            Thanks for the quick answer. It doesn’t really make sense to call it a firearm, but it would still be a big step in the right direction.

    • PK

      Meanwhile, for those of us that have NFA items already, it’s not really a big deal to just go ahead and get more. Wait times seem to be dropping thanks to lower sales overall, too.

      • Tox

        Not past the slump yet, still waiting on a form 1 9 months later…

        • Sunshine_Shooter

          You filed before the slump was over, today’s filers may be past it.

        • Alex Jay

          I’m still waiting for mine…13 months later

    • ExMachina1

      Actually the process is not that difficult with the Silencer Shop’s kiosks.

      Big impediment for me is cost. Yeah, titanium is expensive but when you learn that a simple, alloy 22LR suppressor costs $15 in New Zealand, it’s hard not to feel like that “can” you paid $800 was really that special

    • Pete – TFB Writer

      The problem is, you may wait forever. Once you buy one, the mystery is gone and you’ll see how easy it is.

      • David Silverstein

        There are still valid concerns about them. Even if it’s easy to fill out the forms, that doesn’t make a 1k purchase with all kinds of legal strings attached an easy decision. If you have one, it’s registered, you can’t move, you can’t let anyone use it (in your absence), you can’t just sell it, you have to keep paperwork on you anytime you take it anywhere. It’s just not worth it for most shooters.

        • Pete – TFB Writer

          I’m not saying it’s as easy as ordering a pizza. However, a few misconceptions I can address:
          1) You can move. SBRs, SBSs, etc require a a form that’s as easy as a change of address form. Suppressors don’t require this ATF notification.
          2) If you have a trust, any responsible person can possess the NFA item.
          3) You can sell it, but it requires transfer approval.
          4) There is no requirement to have paperwork available. It makes things easier if you get asked, but 98% of owners have not and will not ever be asked to show forms.

          It is absolutely worth it for many if not most shooters. Suppressed shooting makes our sport so much more enjoyable.

    • Texas-Roll-Over

      FYI: It takes 10 – 30 minutes at your local dealer (5 minutes at mine), you don’t need the Sheriffs approval, and you don’t need a trust….so really….you just don’t want one.

      • Rogertc1

        I said i will wait.

  • PK

    Sales must have absolutely plummeted.

    • Chrono777

      Or they could be looking at how to differentiate themselves from the competition. With a policy like this why would you buy anywhere else? Like silencer companies offering unconditional repairs. They know it will sway buyers.

      • PK

        Before this policy, there wasn’t much point buying elsewhere already.
