FFL/ NFA Transfer Info

Attn Customers: We now have a digital scanner so that we can complete all required finger printing and photographing in house. We have FBI and ATF approved software that can store our customers prints and electronic signatures to help speed up future transfers. Our scanner also automatically scores prints to eliminate errors and ATF refusal of prints. We would like to offer this service to anyone requiring prints for NFA transfers, CPL applications, and other background checks. Please check back for more info or call us with questions!

The ATF NFA Branch allows individuals to check the status on their own transfers. Most commonly this is an ATF Form 4 for an item you have purchased from a dealer such as a silencer, short barreled rifle, short barreled shotgun, or machine gun. The process is quick and easy…

NFA Transfers

All NFA items (suppressors, SBRs) must be sent to a Title2 (SOT3) dealer on an approved ATF Form3. Approval for these has been running around 60 days but experiences differ. Once the transfer is approved your item will ship to your selected dealer. For local purchase of NFA items an ATF Form4 is required and you will need to choose between the traditional method or an NFA Trust. Either way we can help walk you through the process.
