Recommended Texas Class 3 Dealers

Are you looking for a Class 3 dealer in Texas to purchase an NFA firearm? If so, you may be best served by using a Class 3 dealer who sells NFA firearms, such as silencers, machine guns, short barreled rifles (SBRs), and short barreled shotguns (SBSs), on a regular basis. Generally, they will be more familiar with the ATF’s transfer process, including required ATF applications and other paperwork, than the occasional Class 3 dealer will be, which may save some time and frustration during the transfer process.

Before getting into the recommendations, let me be clear that this not a list that Class 3 dealers can request to be on. Class 3 dealers are not added to this list until I have had multiple positive reviews from my gun trust clients.

If you have had a positive experience with a Class 3 dealer and believe the Class 3 dealer should be on this list, please let me know. I would also appreciate recommendations for other Texas-based providers of gun-related services, such as barrel threading, engraving, CHL instructors, etc.
