Tax stamp help


 Share

Recommended Posts

If I want to take my tranferable M16A1 and put a 11.5 inch upper on it do I have to pay for another tax stamp and SBR it. If I keep it that way and travel with it, is there anything I have to do or tell the ATF. If i dont want to keep it that way but just want to go back and forth do i have to do anything? And in the future if I sell it do I have to put it back as a 20 rifle again before I can sell it? I just want to learn the right way of doing things. Thank you, Semper Fi

I would say keep the upper for when you want to sell it so your paperwork would match. You can fill out forms to update the configuration.. but I wouldn't bother. 

As Spartan mentioned, Machinegun trumps.. meaning that you can put a short barrel on it legally since the machine gun trumps over SBRs.

BTW another reason why you want to keep that upper.. is so you can sell it as a M16A1. Having a 11.5" sold with it likely won't reduce the amount you can sell it for.. but it might appeal to less people who want original stuff. IMHO.

Thank you both for the lesson and advise. It take a life time it seems to finally get to a place a guy can afford these things. I want to do everything right. 

Semper Fi. 

If you do make a change that is permanent like changing the color and configuration of an M60 from M60 standard  to a M60 E6 what is it you would do and what forms would I want to fill out RYO?

The ATF doesnt care. Color doesn't matter, configuration doesn't either (e4/e6, etc).

Barrel length/OAL could be argued that is changed but since its a QD barrel its never permanent.

Basically write a letter with all the info, email to the nfa.fax. Doubt they will update the nfa database since its impossible, unless they made the mistake.
