Default Class 3 tax stamp

My question is do I have to have a FFL to own a fully automatic weapon or do I just have to get a Tax Stamp from NFA? The other question is does anyone have the website or contact number to the NFA?

Couple of things:

1, Go to the front and introduce yourself and share some info.
2, You don't mention what state you live in to see if it's even legal in your state to own a fully automatic weapon

To answer your question though.. If your state allows you to own a full auto weapon, you do NOT have to be an FFL to own it. You have to locate a dealer who has a CLASS 3 license to deal in automatic weapons and process the paperwork through them. There will be a fee of, I think it's $200, for the tag and after you wait a bit,weeks I'm told, you'll have your weapon.

Hope that helps ya out and welcome

In MO, you are allowed class 3.

You actualy have to purchase the item before you file for your tax stamp. The serial nu,mber must be included on your paperwork. Then you send your $200, and your forms to the NFA division of the ATF, and WAIT!

Ive heard waits are down to 2.5-3 months. Im at 2 months right now.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Let's not forget that a fully legal, fully automatic weapon is going to run in excess of $6000 for a really old one.

New weapons could cost you $15K-$20K.

Welcome to the very expensive world of Class 3 weapons... LOL

PS - JD does not own a Class III weapon because he can't afford one.

Although these weapons are on a scale of 1k+ on coolness, I just cannot wrap my head around spending that kinda cash just to go bang really really fast. It's not just the expense of the weapon itself that gets me it's the cost of ammo too.. You can drop a lot of cash in a very very short amount of time.

IMO, if you want a full auto fix, try going to Knob Creek Gun range out in Ky. Twice a year they have their full auto shooting open house.. I hear it's an awesome weekend... They're listed on the internet..

You can get into the game for about $3K, I bought a NIB SWD M11/9 two years ago for $3200.

The semi-annual North Georgia Machine Gun Melee is this Saturday. They'll have two cars & plenty of tannerite. There will be a suppressed only session at Noon, with silencer demos. Nothing quite beats doing a suppressed, full-auto mag dump with subsonic ammo.

Come on out & see what you've been missing and get some trigger time.

Remember, there is no such agency as NFA. NFA is the National Firearms Act of 1934. It is the law that set up high (for the day) taxes on Machineguns and other extraordinary firearms. The $200 tax for the transfer was originally the MSRP of a Thompson 1928 model SMG. Today, the sales tax on a good machinegun is is way more than that.

18" bbl 26" overall is the Federal (and Texas) standard for shotguns. Less than that and you are looking at a $200 transfer or 10 years in the Club Fed.

As long as you are not in Michigan, Kali, NY or NJ. you should be fine. Of course any legal advise you get here is worth every penny of what you paid for it. Check your local and State laws to get the real skinny.
