  1. MG C&R Transfer - Individual to C&R Collector

    I'm old and lazy - should have been more specific - or the OP can check out the instructions instead of paying attention to us. If the 03 FFL is held by a legal entity, the 5330.20 goes with and covers the same ground. If a natural person holds the license just fill it out. Shame on ATF - should have used "natural person" rather than "individual" to be more consistent with state verbiage. If I'm missing something interesting, help a brother out. If the transferee is an individual, the entire Form 4 shall be completed except for items 18 and 19. In addition, the transferee must include his or her fngerprints on FBI Form FD-258 and his or her photos (see instruction 2g). If the transferee is other than an individual, e.g., a trust or legal entity such as a corporation, the transferee shall not complete items 14, 15,16, and 17. All other items must be completed including the signing of the Transferee Certifcation statement by the transferee. Photographs and Fingerprints. An individual transferee, except if licensed as a manufacturer, importer, or dealer under the GCA, must (1) attach to item 15 of the ATF Form 4, a 2 inch x 2 inch photograph of the frontal view of the transferee taken within 1 year prior to the date of the application and (2) submit two properly completed FBI Forms FD-258 (Fingerprint Card with blue lines) with the application. The fngerprints must be clear for accurate classifcation and taken by someone properly equipped to take them.
  2. MG C&R Transfer - Individual to C&R Collector

    Fill it all out and include the print/pics which are not collected on a 03 (collector) FFL so no exemption on the F4. The exemption is limited to manufacturer, dealer, importer.
  3. Non-dealer to Dealer question

    No - see form instructions for a second source.
  4. Is there a change in USPS policy on shipping NFA?

    Postal workers are like bureaucrats and dealers. Some on their game, others not so much. With any luck the link will take you to firearm mailing info.
  5. Registered M16 auto sear

    Correct - you would have 1) a registered unregulated item combined with 2) an unregistered regulated item (assuming the scenario is as it seems in this post).
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  10. 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.
  11. 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'.
  12. Info:Death Transfer from PA. to MD.

    922(a)(5) - prohibits transfer to out of state resident with an exemption for inheritance.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
