When your eForm 4 Transfer Application is ready for Certification, please schedule an in-store or online appointment HERE.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
Once you have purchased a silencer, you will need to submit an application to transfer ownership to you or your trust. This application is called a Form 4. The Silencer Shop will guide you step-by-step in your ORDER TIMELINE to create your electronic Form 4 and then we can submit it to the ATF’s eForm system.
HOW DO I ACCESS MY ORDER TIMELINE?
To view your step-by-step Order Timeline, go to www.silencershop.com and select LOG IN > My Account > My Dashboard > Orders > and then click on the “VIEW” button for your silencer. If you have a problem or need to contact the Silencer Shop, their support number is (512) 843-0017. Due to current long hold times, people often leave their phone number for a call back.
WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT H&H?
Once your Order Timeline is on the step, “Ready to Prepare and Certify” or “Prepared and Ready to Certify”, the Silencer Shop will send you an email telling you to contact your dealer. You do NOT need to contact us. We offer online scheduling for your convenience. When you are ready to submit your eForm 4 to the ATF, schedule an eForm 4 Certification using the calendar above.
REMOTE CERTIFICATION REQUIREMENTS: The ATF allows certification over the telephone for ALL registration types (Individual or Trusts). But you must meet the following requirements…
- you must be on a computer or laptop (doesn’t work with cell phones)

WHEN CAN I PICK UP MY SILENCER?
When your eForm 4 is approved, you will receive an email from the ATF with your eForm 4 attached, but your silencer is NOT ready for pick up. Although we strive for same-day pickup, please give us one business day to have your silencer ready for pick up. We will send you a text and an email telling you when you can pick up your silencer.
You shouldn’t hesitate to purchase a silencer just because you think it will be too much of a hassle.
