You will download the Silencer Shop app to your phone and create account. You will complete the steps on the Silencer Shop kiosk which include inputting your fingerprints on the device and deciding which type of Form 4 you want to submit to the ATF when you purchase a silencer. There are 3 options for Form 4’s; Individual, Corporation or Trust. For more information of the differences between types of Form 4’s please click HERE.
