  1. A public service announcement for those of you that received a letter recently regarding use of NICS for background checks on silencers: The reason for this is with 41F came a new interpretation/application of 18 USC 922(t)(3)(B) - see above mentioned form instructions - now if a transferee had no check as part of the application process (by ATF) the dealer does one at time of delivery. Since PA law prohibits use of PICS for anything other than a firearm transfer and does not include a silencer in their definition of a firearm, NICS is the only route (unless/until PA changes the definition). 1. Nothing about the scope of your license changed - what you could buy/sell before, you can buy/sell now. 2. This does not mean you can engage in the business of selling silencers and be exempt from paying SOT. 3. Read the form 4473 item 20 and instructions. If you are still perplexed, call ATF in Pennsylvania - do not call the FBI - it's not their form. The phone number in the letter is for registering to use NICS which is run by the FBI - ATF publishes the forms and Gun Control Act regulations. 4. E-Check is good if you have internet. You can print or save your work for self-audits and it can be quicker at peak times.
  2. Bit of an Introduction

    ATF has 60 days to act on your (properly completed) application and that is usually achieved. A good $30 to spend if you don't mind some fairly simple record keeping.
  3. Re-manufactured tranny MGs?

    Making & manufacturing are the same activity, only distinction is whether the one doing it pays SOT. See definition of "make" in 479.11. There is no process in law or regulation for replacing anything paperless. Build it = register it unless you have a variance and in this scenario that is not a realistic possibility.

  5. Info:Death Transfer from PA. to MD.

    You probably got this ciphered already, but a copy of the will submitted with the F5 might save a kickback due to transferring interstate to a nonlicensee.
  6. Info:Death Transfer from PA. to MD.

    Or read the statute cited in my previous post which contains the exact text you are looking for. Just sayin'.
  7. Info:Death Transfer from PA. to MD.

    922(a)(5) - prohibits transfer to out of state resident with an exemption for inheritance.
  8. Form 3 / Form 4 Processing Question

    That's an excellent method heck - you could even narrow it specifically to the NFA by adding a sentence similar to that which requires a 90 turnaround on explosives license applications and 60 days on firearms license applications. Specifically, 26 U.S.C. 5812 and you could create subsection (a)(7) "The Secretary/Attorney General shall approve or deny any application to make or transfer a firearm within 90 of receipt of a properly executed application". I had some uncomplimentary text about the cost of buying 278 votes and a signature, but have turned over a new leaf.
  9. Trust Question

    You can skip entity documents - not RP info. Prints and pics go every transfer according to the form instructions and Q&A. Q. Are there specific requirements for the “responsible person?” A. Yes. Each responsible person is required to complete ATF Form 5320.23 (National Firearms Act (NFA) Responsible Person Questionnaire), and submit photographs and fingerprints each time the trust or legal entity files an application to make an NFA firearm or is listed as the transferee on an application to transfer an NFA firearm. In addition, each responsible person for the trust or legal entity is required to notify the CLEO of the locality in which the responsible person is located that an application is being submitted to ATF. Q. Will fingerprint cards and photographs be needed for each person(s) identified as a “Responsible Person?” A. Yes. All individuals identified as “Responsible Persons” are required to submit fingerprint cards and photographs. In addition, each “Responsible Person” is required to complete the Form 5320.23, National Firearms Act (NFA) Responsible Person Questionnaire. (See instruction 2 d. (5) on the Forms 1, 4, and 5.) Fingerprint cards and the Form 5320.23 with photograph attached must be provided upon every application submission. Q. If an application was approved within the preceding 24 months, are fingerprint cards and photographs required to be submitted with a new application? A. Yes. The 24-month exemption for providing supporting “documentation” refers only to the documentation proving the existence of an entity, such as trusts or corporate paperwork. The Form 5320.23 with attached photograph and fingerprint cards are required for each person identified as a responsible person for each submission in order to initiate the required background check. See instruction 2 d. (4) and (5) on the Forms 1, 4, and 5.
  10. expired C&R bad situation .. need advice

    You do not need a collector's license to acquire or possess firearms. The license is helpful in acquiring and transporting interstate, but otherwise does not allow you access to anything you cannot have without it unless there is a state law saying only licensed collectors can have ___. If you have a use for one, re-apply and get another one. If not, save the $30 and go on with your life.

    or an importer
  12. Help with sale/transfer of a NFA item.

    MGDB is very good but has been out of print for several years and is tough to find. NFA Handbook is here: Regarding your original question - the agency can acquire it but as WUB said he can't take it with him when he pulls the pin. The agency could buy him out of it, let him find a buyer and transfer, cut it up and take the parts, or none of the above. If you get it, he can't take it at all unless you two are joined at the hip. Drop shipment works well if they choose to buy it from you, just see if your mfg or distributor will ship to the agency. Best if it all above board, Sheriff really authorizes the acquisition for duty use. US vs Vest was an example of the potential for discomfort of acquiring under the umbrella of the agency. Vest himself was found not guilty at a bench trial (922o unconstitutionally vague - funny the gov never appealed that), if feeble memory serves, couple other cops had already pled guilty.
  13. Responsible Person Filing Requirements - Question

    You report the RPs at the time of application regardless of length of time since the last one. If you are concerned about your wife being in proximity of an item, report her as an RP.

    Correct - no need to send prints/pics in at any other time.
