WTK- Purchase SMG's from LE Agency

Location:

I have an opportunity to purchase some NFA items from LE. I was told they were purchased on a Federal Grant. Does this make any difference at all about the Agency selling them to upgrade their SWAT Team weapons?

Thanks

It depends.  If they have paperwork and they are on a form 5 then yes. If they just used grant funding to purchase then yes. If they were obtained through the 1033 program then no. NFA obtained through the 1033 program are just “on loan” to the agency and remain US gov property.  There is no NFA paperwork on 1033 weapons. The feds are exempt and are not required to comply with the NFA.

The dept can contact the ATF to find out if they don't know. They will likely just ask for the serial numbers and get back to them.
