Simply strip your rifle down to a barreled action for easy handling and we’ll do the rest! No matter if it is a common hunting rifle or a custom match grade piece, we’re ready to take on your barrel threading project, and give it all the attention to detail and care that Silencer Central is famous for.

How Do I Get My Barrel To Silencer Central?

There are four ways to send your barrels to Silencer Central including:

  • 360 Mailing Program
  • Drop Off at Gun Show
    • When dropping off at a gun show please double-check that your firearm is broken down before delivery, this includes removing the scope rings. (additional fees may apply if we have to deconstruct your weapon before servicing)
  • Drop Off In-Store
    • When dropping off at our headquarters please double-check that your firearm is broken down before delivery, this includes removing the scope rings. (additional fees may apply if we have to deconstruct your weapon before servicing)
  • Mail-In

360 Mailing Program

We will send you a pre-packaged box (4″ x 8″ x 48″) containing two soft cases with a prepaid return shipping label. You will remove all accessories from your rifle and package your barrel(s) in the provided soft cases, fill out the order form and secure it in the soft case, then use the prepaid label to send it off to Silencer Central.

360 mailing package

Once we receive your barrels, our certified machinist will thread them according to your order form specifications, add on a thread protector and ship your threaded order back to you.

Our barrel threading service starts at $99.99 per barrel and includes a thread protector (a $20 added value). You will be billed for all threading services prior to receiving your threaded barrels. Visit our services page for a price list of other services offered.

The incredible surge in the popularity of suppressors makes a threaded muzzle virtually standard equipment on today’s precision rifle. Silencer Central is well equipped for this extremely popular upgrade. With our resources and experience, your device will attach trouble-free every time.

Drop Off at Gun Show

Are you heading to a gun show attended by Silencer Central? Bring your barrels (all accessories removed) to any gun show we attend (that allows firearm drop-offs) and we will ship them back to you for FREE!

*Take note that you are only able to drop off rifles for threading if the trade show facility allows it. For example, the farm shows and the shows at fairgrounds do not normally allow firearms. We suggest you call the specific event you are attending to see if firearms are allowed on site.

To speed up the order process at the gun show, print and fill out the barrel threading order form and bring it with you to the show.

Drop Off In Store

Stop by our Sioux Falls location at 4901 N 4th Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57104 and drop off your barrels for threading. Be sure to have all accessories removed before dropping them off. Please note, we do not offer a same-day threading service our standard 7 – 10 day turnaround time still applies.

Mail to Silencer Central

You may choose to mail your barrels to use yourself (without purchasing the 360 Mailing Program). If so, please package them carefully so they don’t get damaged. Be sure to print off and include the barrel threading order form in your package. A return shipping fee of $19.99 will be added to your threading service charges.

Additional Mail-In and Drop-Off Instructions

Please follow these instructions before mailing or dropping off your equipment. Remove all accessories including scope base, rings, optics, slings, etc. An accessories fee will be added if accessories are not removed. We do not accept any liability or responsibility for any damage that could occur for accessories not removed.

An order form must be included with all packages mailed to our office, including return shipments with the 360 Mailing Program. We require the form to know who you are, your threading requests and to make sure your contact information is up-to-date in our system.

If sending in an AR, please only send the upper. The upper and lower together with the pistol grip do not fit well in our soft cases when shipping. Refer to our services page for examples and information on what is acceptable to ship.

The boxes we use for shipping are 4″ x 8″ x 48″ in size. Your rifles/barrels must fit into that container for return shipping. We would prefer that you do not ship or drop-off odd shaped cases such as guitar cases or oversized gun cases. These types of cases make it hard to package items securely because of their shape making them susceptible to damage. Also, the odd-shaped and oversized gun cases do not fit securely in our gun racks.

If you have questions regarding mailing in or dropping off your barrels, please contact us or call 888-781-8778.

Disclaimer: Threading Central cannot accept firearms that do not have a visible serial number unless documentation is included. If we receive a firearm with no visible serial number & lacking documentation, the item will be turned over to the ATF.

Threading Central cannot accept short-barreled rifles (SBR – barrel length less than 16”) unless a copy of your Form 4 (tax stamp) is included in the shipment. If documentation cannot be provided, the item will be turned over to the ATF.
