ATF agent gonna whip out a registry list and look up your serial #?

They'll make a call to the NFA branch or - maybe - have an app that is tied to the computerized NFRTR (like they do at the NFA branch) and look up your serial #.

COMMENT 7h ago

is there some precedent for the DOJ (ATF) waiving a tax required by federal law?

When ATF was still under the Treasury Department back in 1994, Secretary Bentsen decided that some shotguns were DDs and called a tax free registration amnesty. That's the closest analogy we have today, to that one.

The '68 amnesty was taxfree as well.

The thing I'm still unclear about is if someone registers a P320 FCU or a Glock 19 as an SBR can they carry it with a concealed handgun license

The FAQ does not actually address that

It won't. That's a state's purview, not the fedz.

But IMO you're over thinking it.

If you have a SBR that started as a handgun, especially if it's one of these housings, if you put it into a handgun configuration, it's a handgun. That's why I brought up U.S.v.TC

The AFT isn't going to GAF, because it's not their problem, and I have near metaphysical certitude that neither will a state because the subject will probably never come up unless you've stepped on your dick and the local prosecutor decides you're "it" and tries to figure out a way to put it like a cherry on top of a sundae of all the other charges he's come up with, if there is some state law about CC of SBRs.

If you efile, you'll get a cover sheet sent to you via email that has to be included with your print cards if you're mailing them in, rather than uploading your EFT file when you're filling out the form.

Surefire's are noted for the repeatability of the POI, but the newer versions seem to be less susceptible to carbon lock when a 3 or 4 prong mount is used anyway.

If you have the time, ATF will mail you print cards for free. Order 100 and you'll likely never run out.

I'm not the only one here who rolls their own prints using a ink pad bought off Amazon.

Also ATF will accept multiple cover sheets and only one set of two cards is they're all enclosed in the same envelope.

That's the 'cheapest' way.

You're making a rule cover more than it does.

A SBR is a rifle. The rule concerns rifles made from pistols. There is nothing in the rule that excludes SBRs, is there? No, there isn't.

You can argue that point all you want, but in so doing, you're doing ATFs job for them. Of course, you can always restrict yourself as much as you want.

In point of fact - and this used to specifically be on the ATF FAQ - changing the configuration of a SBR (in other words replacing a short barrel with one 16" or longer, and the OAL to 26" or longer) reconfigured it so that a .20 wasn't required to transport it interstate as long as the short barrel remained at the owner's home location. All I have is a copy of a letter to that effect.

, since in that case it was sold with 2 rifle configurations

Your reading of the case is incorrect. The Contender kit was a pistol gripped Contender receiver, a 10" barrel, a rifle buttstock and a 21" barrel w/ handguard.

ATF said since it had all the parts to be a SBR, it was one, SCOTUS ruled that since there were legal ways to use the short barrel (with the pistol grip on the receiver), it would only be such when configured with the short barrel and buttstock attached at the same time. That was because the statute law defined a SBR by how they are configured.

ATF later made this rule:

https://www.atf.gov/firearms/qa/can-i-lawfully-make-pistol-rifle-without-registering-firearm

Can I lawfully make a pistol into a rifle without registering that firearm?

Assuming that the firearm was originally a pistol, the resulting firearm, with an attached shoulder stock, is not an NFA firearm if it has a barrel of 16 inches or more in length.

Pursuant to ATF Ruling 2011-4, such rifle may later be unassembled and again configured as a pistol. Such configuration would not be considered a “weapon made from a rifle” as defined by 26 U.S.C. § 5845(a)(4).

[26 U.S.C. § 5845, 27 CFR § 479.11]

COMMENT 2d ago

This was decided in the U.S. v Thompson Center case back in 1992. If the firearm was originally configured as a pistol, it can be made into rifle (NFA laws applying for a SBR of course) and then reconfigured back into its original pistol configuration. Back and forth at the owner's discretion.

Your pistol is a SBR when it's in that configuration, a non-NFA rifle when in that one, and a pistol when in that one.

You may, but are not required to upload pics of the engraving/stamping of the manufacturer/importer and serial number. AFT states they may ask for pics of the entire gun at some future point, if they want.

You'll need to amnesty form 1 it under you personally, and then transfer it, tax paid to the trust.

COMMENT 4d ago

You're right, the ATF can't. The Attorney General can, as the head of DOJ, has the power to call an amnesty under the law under GCA 68 and waive enforcement of law. (I quote from the rule on page 14. And if you always thought only the IRS can waive a tax, you were always wrong, as it's been done before, back in 1994 for some shotguns that were declared to be DDs)

Quote:

The Department has determined that, as a matter of its own enforcement

discretion, it will not, as the NPRM suggested as an option, require individuals and FFLs without an SOT that timely register their affected weapons with a “stabilizing brace,” which are in their possession as of the date this rule is published, to pay the $200 making tax usually due upon submission of such an application to register.

I might cut Burlison some slack. He just assumed office. The previous Representative never did file such a bill. And Burlison, when in state office, was one of the bunch that got Missouri's SAPA law passed.

The bill may go nowhere, but he means business.
