Get to Know Dakota Silencer

An Exclusive Class 3 Firearms Dealer Serving the Midwest 

At Dakota Silencer, we believe in doing one thing and doing it well. That’s why we not only focus solely on silencers – also known as sound suppressors – but have also taken the time to custom-design one exclusively for our customers.

Our company is amongst the largest Class 3 dealers in the country with eight current locations in Iowa, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wyoming. Over the past 12 years, we’ve sold thousands of silencers to Dakota residents and now offer our premium products throughout the United States. Dakota Silencer did over $24 million in silencer sales last year.

Our owner, Brandon Maddox, is currently one of only two Class 3 dealers that sit on a National ATF Advisory Board in Washington, DC for silencers. He regularly lectures at a national level on issues that impact both the operations and compliance within the Class 3 marketplace.

With a full-time staff dedicated to your needs, we can assist with your silencer selection and guarantee that all your Class 3 paperwork is completed correctly. Our dedication to exceptional customer service is one reason why customers remain loyal to our brand, and you’ll feel no differently.
