Like a two-year-old, it takes a lot of time and effort to make a gun quiet. The wait time to get a suppressor that you already paid for is legendary. The line at In-N-Out is nothing compared to the backed-up approval line at the ATF. One of the major issues is the archaic paper system that is still being used. Fortunately, Silencer Central has some good news about the suppressor buying process. The use of electronic Form 4 applications is nigh.
“With this upgrade, the ATF will accept electronic submissions from Silencer Central,” said Brandon Maddox, CEO of Silencer Central. “Silencer Central has tested this new system and the benefit is clear; wait times will be cut in half—and likely much more. Data entry has been one of the largest contributors to the ATF wait-times and backlogs. Now the data will begin in a digitized format and the process can focus on what matters most: approvals.”
Updated Suppressor Buying Process From Silencer Central
Silencer Central is being a homie. Customers can buy their suppressors now, and Silencer Central will hold their applications until eForm submissions are officially in use. Implementation is expected before the end of December 2021. The company has worked hard on the eForms BETA testing to make sure that the new process actually works. They hope that the new system will cut wait times in half, and down to as few as 60 days for approvals.
