National Firearms Act (NFA) Machine Gun Approval

As most of you know, 18 USC s.922(o) provides:

(1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), it shall be unlawful for any person to transfer or possess a machinegun.

(2) This subsection does not apply with respect to—

(A) a transfer to or by, or possession by or under the authority of, the United States or any department or agency thereof or a State, or a department, agency, or political subdivision thereof; or

(B) any lawful transfer or lawful possession of a machinegun that was lawfully possessed before the date this subsection takes effect.

This section went into effect on May 19, 1986. This means that any machine gun built after May 19, 1986 may not be possessed by or transferred to an individual. Recently, we have received word that some people have actually received approved Form 1s (Application to make and register a firearm) for machine guns.

If you filed a Form 1 for a machine gun, and were approved by the BATFE and received a stamp and were subsequently contacted by the BATFE and disallowed OR if you filed a Form 1 for a machine gun, received the stamp and then made the machine gun, please contact us immediately. We would like to speak with you about your options.
