NFA gun trusts


One Time Purchase

Unlimited Trustees

The Traditional NFA Gun Trust is a revocable trust that provides the flexibility of allowing multiple responsible parties, or trustees, to legally have possession of the suppressor (or other NFA items listed on the trust). This traditional NFA gun trust requires a one-time fee for all NFA items.

Once the gun trust is purchased, you will receive a short and simple questionnaire with instructions on completing your trust. After you’ve completed the questionnaire, you’ll receive your trust via email that will require you to print, sign, and have notarized. The trust will also include instructions on how to add and/or remove trustees, NFA items, and beneficiaries.

Lastly, your account will need to be updated to reflect that you are wanting to file under a trust. This can easily be adjusted in your account login, or you can give us a call and we can make the switch. If you’re a first-time customer, when you are registering, be sure to select your filing as a “Traditional NFA Gun Trust” so that your account will reflect that. Your trust will be added to all purchases made through Silencer Shop thereafter. It’s truly as simple as that!

The benefits of a Traditional NFA Gun Trust include:

  • One-time purchase for all NFA items on one trust
  • Ability to name an unlimited amount of trustees
  • Ability to name beneficiary
  • Benefit of adding or removing responsible parties after transfer with an addendum, provided by Silencer Shop at no additional expense
  • A trust generated by a top gun trust attorney to be legal in every state it’s legal to own a suppressor – and specifically designed to hold all NFA purchases
  • Custom name choice for Trust

There is a lawyer that can provide technical support for this trust; but, they cannot give legal advice since this is a do-it-yourself form option. As mentioned previously, if you prefer to work with a lawyer, please visit our lawyer referral page. If, on the other hand, you’re looking for a quick and easy gun trust without spending as much money, this is a great option!

This form is not legal advice and is to be used at your own discretion. Consultation with an attorney is highly recommended and this form is not a substitute for appropriate legal advice in your state.

Using a Gun Trust to purchase and hold your firearms:



  • No Chief Law Enforcement Officer (Sheriff) signature required for ATF application.
  • No registration, fingerprints, photographs, or other filing requirements – your information remains private!
  • Name beneficiaries and provide legal transfer of your Title II weapons if something were to happen to you. Trust items do not need to go through probate at your death.
  • Trust assets given to beneficiaries are protected from creditors, judgements, and bankruptcy.
  • No limit to the number of Title II items added to the trust.
  • No expiration or annual fees associated with the trust.
  • Protect others, such as a spouse, child or friend, from issues of constructive possession or other violations of Federal law.
  • Allow others to be authorized users of your NFA firearms without violation of the National Firearms Act.
