Finally ordered a suppressor
« on: June 15, 2021, 07:35:43 PM »
I finally “pulled the trigger” on a suppressor today. Thunderbeast Ultra Gen 2 7”. I ordered it with the internal CB brake mount.

So this thing should ship to the FFL address that I put down on the website. And once it gets there they call me to come in and do the paperwork/fingerprint/tax stamp right? I ordered it from Mile High Shooting Accessories.

Worth it to have my gunsmith install the mount? It looks like it comes with the “peel” washers to get the brake in the right position. Doesn’t look too hard I guess.

Anything else a guy needs to know about these things? I’ll be running it on my Ridgeline 6.5 PRC for the most part. Eventually I’ll get a mount for my 300 wsm too.

Going to be a long wait, but I’m excited.  8)

You are right they should get ahold of you to do the form 4. You don't want to use a crush washer but anything else flat and solid would work. The concern is the break needs to be in line with the bore or you could get baffle strikes or worse shoot your can off.

Once you get it out of NFA jail you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

You need to contact your chosen dealer and find out what their policies are. They may or may not handle the Form 4 or the fingerprinting, or the tax stamp.

Thanks for the input guys.

My FFL does do the transfers. They have a silencer shop kiosk there.

I havent hunted with mine yet but so far at the range im not convinced they are the most awesome thing ever. Lol zero offsets from brake to can are dumb and they make everything get so hot so fast.

I have the exact same supressor in jail since February 25th. I am hoping that I have it by hunting season. I'll let you know how it shoots.

Best advice is to try and forget about it until you get the call. But since you won't, I'd wait until about 5 months after your check or debit transaction is taken by the atf. Then call maybe every two or three weeks until it's approved. I have 4 cans and my average wait is about 6 months. 2.5 being the shortest and 10 being the longest. As far as the muzzle Device, don't use a crush washer and have a smith install it if you're not comfortable doing it, make sure you use rockset or something on it as well. You can get a stick to make sure your can is in line with the bore so that you don't have a accident...... You will most likely have some poa/poi changes when running the suppressor vs not so be ready for that. If you haven't shot a suppressed rifle yet then just be aware it's hearing safe but still loud. Otherwise they are great for what they do but regular earplugs are a hell of a lot cheaper. Lol.
2nd piece of advice is to go ahead and get a .22 can as well because they are amazing, and shooting them is so much more enjoyable with the can on.

Awesome guys, thanks for all of the comments!

Anyone heard of silencer central? They claim suppressors in as little as 8 weeks, and shipped directly to your door :dunno:

No such thing.  Suppressors are heavily taxed by the feds and the approval wait is long and tedius. It's illegal for them to ship directly to you, much like it's illegal to direct ship a firearm now.

That’s how I understand it. Steve Rinella (meateater) recently posted about this shop, and that he was going to try it out. Haven’t heard of this until now...

Interesting,  I don't see how they circumvent the federal approval and delivery process. Even after being approved the silencer still has to be delivered via form 4473. I did watch the video but he didn't mention an 8 week turn around. I'd be interested to see how they actually deliver the suppressor.

I should say that my check was cashed 12/29/2020 so I'm anxiously waiting for my phone call from East County telling me it's time to get broken out of NFA jail.

Me too...since the fed requite the 4473 to be filled out in person at the premises or gun show.
