Purchasing over the Internet

We will ship your firearm to a Federally Licensed Firearm Dealer, Manufacturer or Pawnbroker (FFL). From there, the local FFL will handle the background check and any compliance with state/local laws regarding the sale of firearms.

Please make sure you have an FFL ready to receive your firearm before you order and have them email a legible copy of their license to support@floridasilencer.com.  Once we receive the copy of their FFL, your item will usually ship the next day, unless it is a weekend or holiday.

Any magazines that are not legal in your state will not be shipped. If we do not have legal magazines to ship to you it wil be your responsibility to obtain the correct magazines.

We will only ship firearms to an FFL.
