JK Armament and Silencer Shop have teamed up to provide customers with an efficient way to buy, build and register a legal silencer that starts out as a solvent trap. The process begins with users buying a kit for either a pistol caliber or rifle caliber solvent trap that comes with all the jigs and tools required to build a functional suppressor. Once the Form 1 is approved, owners can legally make a modular silencer in about an hour.
As a reminder, ATF Form 1 “making” applications are being approved in three to four weeks as opposed to Form 4 “transfer” applications which are being approved in about three to nine months. We covered using the ATF Eform system step-by-step here, but for short money, you can use Silencer Shop’s System and avoid having to send in your own fingerprints.
Note: My last Form 1 in March of 2020 was approved in 19 days. Details can be found below.

About Silencer Shop As the industry’s largest suppressor distributor, Silencer Shop’s goal is to supply customers with a suite of services that allow for a simpler silencer ownership process. With the most trafficked suppressor website, a robust nationwide network of kiosks, and ATF compliance and customer support, Silencer Shop provides the most efficient process of acquiring NFA items.
We’re bringing it back for the first 1000 customers! If this page reads “Out of stock” and there is a “Join Waitlist” button instead of an “Add To Cart,” then we’ve already sold ’em out! Purely guessing here, but we expect to be sold out before the end of the day Friday 4/3/2020 so don’t wait around.
This service is functional but requires a few steps on your end that we are not comfortable offering long term. In the hopes that we could brighten your day a bit, we’ve offered it up regardless. We are still working diligently with the ATF on a more long term solution that is in keeping with our goal to simplify the ATF process as much as possible and we hope to have this solution in place this year.
An ATF Form 1 is the form to fill out if you are intending to create your own NFA Item. For most of us, that means transforming an existing AR lower receiver into a “Short Barreled Rifle.” This form can also be used if you are creating a Short Barreled Shotgun or intending to create your own silencer at home.
Silencer Shop is not utilizing the ATF eForms system to submit Form 1 applications to the ATF digitally! While this system is fatastic (read: “significantly faster”), we need you to provide your SSN while you are filling out your registration information in order to use the eForm system.
To file a Form 1 through Silencer Shop, the process is simple. If you already have a customer account with us and we have all of your registration information (photo, fingerprints, etc), all you need to do is:
- Purchase an “ATF Form 1 Service” for each item you intend to Form 1
- Don’t forget to purchase a Tax Stamp as well
- Follow the link in the email you receive to fill out your firearm details
- You will receive this email within moments of your order confirmation
- Submit the firearm you just entered to our ATF review staff
- After you have entered your firearm details, you will need to confirm that is the correct selection by clicking the “submit” button
- Sign your completed Form 1 after it has been reviewed via an automatic DocuSign email
- Our ATF compliance staff will look over your order and make sure everything looks good before we send it to you to sign. You are still responsible for the accuracy of the information entered.
If you have never purchased a silencer through our Powered By Silencer Shop program, you’ll need to submit your fingerprints, passport photo, etc. Lucky for you, we’ve got a super simple process for doing this. Check out our How To Buy A Silencer page for details on our SID Kiosk system and Mobile App!
We’ll print and mail a copy of your prints to the ATF as soon as we submit the Form 1 in eFile. For eFile submissions, we’ll let you know via email when your item is approved. For paper submissions you’ll receive the aproval directly from ATF.
