Silencer Central, America’s largest suppressor dealer, is proud to announce the eminent availability of electronic Form 4 applications—a major update to how the silencer buying process works, and a change expected to cut wait times for approvals down to as few as 60 days. Silencer Central is allowing customers to buy now and will hold applications until the official implementation of eForm submissions, which is expected before the end of the month.

“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.”

Silencer Central has been on the front line of BETA testing the new process since day one. With more than 16 years of experience, the company has become the leading authority in suppressor sales and worked closely on the eForms testing process to help ensure that the new process is as efficient as possible. For more information or to learn more about the ATF eForm 4, Silencer Central has a web page dedicated to answering questions.

“Silencer Central’s customers will still receive the same rapid and streamlined filing process,” Maddox added. “The new electronic submissions will be handled in-house at Silencer Central with the same attention to process and detail that has made us the leading authority in suppressors.”

Anyone who has already submitted paperwork should not withdraw their application. The company’s web page warns enthusiasts, “ATF has stated that any withdrawals of pending paper applications will result in a one-year delay.”
