Clean firearms are safer, more accurate, less likely to malfunction, and just plain look pretty – but who has time to clean their guns? Defender Outdoors is excited to be the first to bring a commercial ultrasonic firearm and suppressor cleaning service to Fort Worth at our store located at 2900 Shotts Street . Ultrasonic cleaning is the safest and most effective method of firearm cleaning and restoration, and is used by many law enforcement agencies, security firms and military bases to keep their firearms performing at the highest level. Now it’s available to you!

  • Our certified gunsmith will break your pistol, revolver, rifle, shotgun or suppressor down to its individual components.
  • All metal and polymer components will be thoroughly scrubbed by hand in our parts washer to remove large deposits of dirt, carbon and unburned powder.
  • The components will then be transferred to our ultrasonic cleaner’s heated cleaning tank where they will soak in a heated biodegradable cleaning solution.
  • The cleaning solution is agitated by an electrical transducer, which creates waves in the cleaning solution and causes tiny vacuum bubbles to form and implode on the surface of the components, removing even microscopic dirt and carbon particles.
  • The components are then removed from the cleaning solution and transferred to a lubricant tank where they will soak in a firearm lubricant and rust inhibitor.
  • After removal from the lubricant tank, the components are dried and inspected. The firearm or suppressor is then reassembled and function tested.
  • Wood stocks and other parts will be cleaned and polished by hand.
  • Let us do the dirty work – no more tedious and time-consuming hand cleaning and scrubbing.
  • Ultrasonic cleaning will reach and clean the hardest to reach cracks, grooves and crevices and effectively removes surface rust, unburned powder, carbon, lint, oil, dirt and contaminants.
  • Gentle biodegradable cleaning solution will not harm finishes or remove bluing.
  • Lubricant and rust inhibitor ensures that all components are properly lubricated and protected to extend the life and improve the performance of your firearm.
  • Maintains accuracy, integrity and effectiveness of firearms for longer periods – make sure it functions when it really counts!
  • Thoroughly cleans and protects your barrel, bolt group, firing mechanism, trigger group, frame, receiver, suppressor baffles and all other various parts and tubes.
  • In most cases, restores your firearm or suppressor to like new or better than new condition.
  • Protects your investment.
  • Are you experiencing any of the following firearm malfunctions? Ultrasonic cleaning may be the solution.
  • Light primer strikes
  • Suppressor carbon lock
  • Failure to extract
  • Failure to feed

  • Firearm restoration – bring us your neglected, abused, rusted, caked-on, fouled-up, dirty firearm for an affordable service that will restore your firearm and help protect it for the future.

At Defender Outdoors, providing great customer service means everything to us. With all ultrasonic cleanings we strive to have your cleaning completed within 3 business days of receipt or less.

**Guaranteed or its Free only applies to fully functioning firearms in good working order. We cannot guarantee a completion date in the event your firearm requires repairs above and beyond a clean & oil service.

NFA Transfer Status
In order to get the status of your transfer from the ATF, you can call the NFA Branch directly at: (304) 616-4500.
When you call, they will ask for your name (or the name of your trust or corporation), the serial number of the suppressor, and the name of the transferor.
For the transferor information, please use the name we sent you in the confirmation email when your electronic transfer was submitted.
Once they get your information, they’ll confirm you’re in the system and will probably give you an estimate for when to expect the approval. Remember that they don’t really know exactly when your transfer will be approved – so take the estimate for what it is. (In the past these estimates have been off dramatically, both long and short.)
If you want to check how long the approvals we’re currently getting are taking, please check this page for today’s updated wait times.
If your application was submitted on a paper form, remember that it can take 2-4 weeks for the NFA examiner to mail the approved application to us; so, it’s possible they’ll tell you the application is approved before you hear from us. We’ll let you know as soon as we receive it so you can pick up your suppressor.
Finally, remember that the time will often pass faster if you try to forget about it. Believe it or not, that magic approval will show up when you’re least expecting it.
