NFA ITEMS

 

Warthog Firearms can help you aquire surpressors or setup a lower for the use as a SBR 

SUPPRESSORS ARE LEGAL

 

Contrary to popular belief, suppressors. are and always have been legal to own under federal law. At this time, the following states allow private ownership of suppressors.

FORMS NEEDED

 

Warthog Firearms has form 1 and form 4 that are used for SBR's and suppressors. They are in a pdf format and are easy to fill out. We do not charge for filling out these forms

1. Register the suppressor in your own name

 

   Advantages

       You can avoid initial work required to setup a trust or corporation

   Disadvantages 

       Only you can be in possession of the suppressor

       Requires signature from chief law-enforcement officer where you live

       Requires fingerprint cards

 

   Best for

       People who don’t plan to buy a lot of NFA items

       People who just want to get the buying process started

       People who always plan to be present when the suppressor is in use 

 

2. Register the suppressor to a trust

 

  Advantages

       Anyone listed as a grantor in the trust can be in possession of the suppressor

       A revocable trust can be changed at any time without notifying the ATF

       No signature is required from chief law-enforcement officer

       No fingerprint cards are required

       You only need to create the trust once. The same trust can be used for all future

suppressors or other NFA items (such as short barreled rifles)

   Disadvantages

       Some initial work and cost is required to setup the trust. Many people create their

trust with software  – or you can click on the home page link  199 trust can do a trust for $79.00. +-

       In some states, a trust needs to be registered with the state – although that is not a requirement in most cases.

   Best for

       People with family members who want to share possession of the suppressor

       People who want to go together with friends on the purchase of a suppressor

       People who want more flexibility in the long run

       Anyone planning on making multiple NFA purchases who want to avoid the overhead

of getting the CLEO signature and fingerprints each time 

 

3. Register the suppressor to a corporation

 

  Advantages

       Any officer of the corporation can be in possession of the suppressor

       If you already have a corporation, this can be easier than a trust since you will avoid the initial trust setup

       No signature is required from chief law-enforcement officer

       No fingerprint cards are required

   Disadvantages

       You need to keep your corporation in good standing, which can be more work than a trust

(which is basically a “create it and forget about it” process in most cases)

   Best for

       Anyone who already owns a corporation, and wants that corporation to act as the owner of the suppressor

       Anyone planning on making multiple NFA purchases who want to avoid the overhead

of getting the CLEO signature and fingerprints each time 

 

Now, you’re ready to buy your new toy!

 

Once you know you can legally own a suppressor, and you know how you’re going to register it, it’s time to go shopping!

The process of actually buying the suppressor online is similar to buying something from

any other online retailer, with only two major differences:

   For non-Texas buyers, you will need to locate an FFL holder in your state with a Class 2 or 3 SOT that can

handle the transfer for you. We can even help you locate an FFL/SOT holder in your area if you don’t already know one.

   You won’t be able to take possession of the suppressor until the transfer process has been completed by the

ATF. This typically takes between 2-4 months – but most suppressor owners will agree that it’s well worth the wait!
