Please follow these steps when placing your order:
Place your order as you would for any other item on our website. The shipping address that you enter will not matter because we must ship to the address listed on the Federal Firearms License of your transferring dealer. Once your order has been placed, please have a licensee (or yourself if you have a valid electronic copy of the FFL) of your choosing send us a current copy of their FFL with your order number. The Customer or an FFL may email ([email protected]) a signed copy. (Please note that if we do not receive a copy of the FFL, your order will not be processed.)
Due to the high seasonal/holiday order volume, please allow 3-10 business days for your firearm to ship.
PLEASE NOTE: ALL FIREARMS WILL BE SHIPPED TO THE ADDRESS ON A VALID FFL. NO EXCEPTIONS!
All Firearms Sales Are Final!
Firearms found to be defective must be returned to the manufacturer.
Ordering NFA Items
NFA Rules – Please Read before ordering NFA Items
Ordering Suppressors (Silencers)
Suppressors, like machine-guns, are regulated under the National Firearms Act (NFA) of 1934, and are regulated by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms.
To legally purchase a suppressor or any item falling under the purview of the NFA, you must be at least 21 years of age, a resident of the United States, and have no felony record.
The first step is to order the suppressor you are interested in from AES. Once a product and price have been settled on, the prospective purchaser will need to obtain duplicate ATF Form 4’s and two sets of fingerprint cards. The Form 4’s must be filled out on both sides, with passport photos of the prospective buyer affixed to the backside of the form. The buyer then has the Chief Law-Enforcement officer sign the rear of the Form 4’s attesting the prospective purchaser does not possess a criminal record and is not wanted.
The two fingerprint cards must be completed and signed by a Law Enforcement agency. The completed paperwork is then sent to the Department of the Treasury with a check or money order for $200.00. The $200.00 is known as a “transfer tax” because it must be paid whenever ownership of the suppressor is “transferred” (in this case, AES to the prospective purchaser). As long as ownership remains with the same person, the tax need not be paid again. Only if the owner sells, will a new transfer tax need to be paid. An owner may will his silencer to a lawful heir with no tax incurred.
Once the paperwork is submitted, it normally takes 60 to 120 days to receive the approved, stamped paperwork from the NFA Branch. Only upon returning the approved paperwork AES can allow the prospective purchaser to take possession of their new suppressor. A copy of the approved paperwork must accompany the suppressor at all times (the original should be stored in a safe deposit box). Suppressors can be transported to other states that allow their ownership, but to transport a suppressor into one of the states* which prohibit private ownership can subject the owner to serious state felony charges.
*At this time, the following states allow private ownership of suppressors:
AL, AR, AK, AZ, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IN, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MO, MS, MT, ND, NE, NV, NH, NM, NC, OH, OK, OR, PA, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, WA, WI, WV, and WY.
Alpha Epsilon Systems LLC (AES) products are designed and built to the highest standards and offer a full lifetime warranty on all AES-built products. The lifetime warranty will remain in full force and effect as long as AES is still in operation.
The lifetime warranty covers any manufacturing defects that may render the product unsafe operation and/or be out of spec (including cosmetic defects from the factory). Cosmetic defects are only covered for the first ten days from the original shipping date from AES. It is your responsibility to thoroughly inspect your order from AES and let us know immediately if there is an issue. Cosmetic issues occurring outside the 10-day window will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
“Please note that slight color variations should be expected due to variations of the anodizing processes.”
Should you find any of the above issues with your AES products, we will repair or replace the product to meet AES Industry Standards.
Sales Tax, Shipping charges, and FFL fees are non-refundable. We will cover shipping and FFL fees if it is an AES mistake. On Non-AES-built products, all warranties are through the original manufacturer only; no warranties are expressed or implied by AES. Prices do not include shipping and handling. Texas residents add 8.25% sales tax.
