The NFA branch of ATF requires a special tax stamp to register  NFA items.

What is the difference between registering as an individual or a trust?

As an individual, you will be the sole owner of your NFA item. The registered item must remain in your possession only, and can NEVER be left with anyone who is not licensed to that specific item.

As a trust, you can register several people to be owners of the NFA item. This is helpful for married couples, families, businesses, etc.


What is the process of obtaining an NFA Tax Stamp?

  1. Purchase your suppressor or SBR from a class 3 dealer (licensed dealer for NFA items) first. When you apply for your tax stamp, you register a specific serial number, so you have to purchase the item first. The EASIEST way to order a suppressor is through SilencerShop.
