Guarantee, Warranty, and Cancellation Policy

YOUR SILENCER DONE RIGHT, GUARANTEED

We make getting a silencer simple—and we commit to doing it right, every time.

  • We guide you through every step, with expert advice from real people. We commit to responding to your questions and concerns within 2 business days.
  • We leave no detail overlooked. We commit to completing your paperwork right, the first time. If you provide accurate information and Silencer Central makes an error on your application that results in a disapproval from the ATF, we will refund your tax stamp in the form of a credit to your account and work quickly to get you resubmitted.
  • We engineer our BANISH™ Suppressors to the highest levels of quality, reliability, and performance. BANISH Suppressors ship with a warranty against defects in manufacturing, but we also guarantee satisfaction and performance. If your BANISH Suppressor does not significantly reduce the report and recoil of your firearm, we’ll buy it back. Learn more.
  • We ship with care. Our silencers are carefully packaged surrounded in durable foam and encased in a hard-sided box to prevent any damage from occurring during transit. Adult signature is required upon delivery. When shipping your barrel(s) for gunsmithing services, we commit to repairing or replacing any firearm damaged in transit, so long as all shipping specifications have been met. Learn more about our shipping policy.
