Default Age Limit?

Hey guys, a friend asked me how old do you have to be to get a transferable weapon or a SBS ie, 14 inch. I cant find a straight answer out there. Any help?

If you're saying that the weapon has a 14" barrel, then it's 21. Anything under 16" basically isn't supposed to be classified as a rifle, therefore has to be listed as a handgun. If it's an SBR, then you'd still have to have the stamp from ATF to posess it over just age.

Only rifles and shotguns may be transferred to an 19 yr old. All "other" must be 21. So SBRs, SBS's, DDs, machine guns, AOWs and suppressors- which are ALL "other" go to 21 yr olds.

I thought for a regular long gun/shotgun it was 18?

Federal law dictates a purchaser must be 18 for long guns and 21 for handguns FROM A LICENSED DEALER.

Individuals may purchase from each other at 18 for ANY firearm.

Depends on the state too I believe.

That's what I forgot. State law may supercede federal age limits.
