    After doing a bunch of research it looks like I need to register my mil surplus 26.5 mm Czech flare gun if I take it out in the woods or on the boat. As just a flare gun it is not necessary, but sense I also have a Kennasaw 410/ 45 long colt sub-caliber insert it changes everything.
    So has any one registered one of these? Or am I opening up a can of worms I will come to regret?
    Thanks for your thoughts,
    Randy

    Pardon my ignorance but is this flare gun a pistol or shoulder fired?

    If its shoulder fired and the barrel is less than 16" you have the components to an SBR and would have to apply for the stamp as such. This also applies if it is under mounted on a rifle

    If the insert is rifled, it's just a handgun.
    If the insert is smooth bore, registration requires a $200 tax stamp from the BATF. You can not legally assemble an NFA weapon until after it is registered and you possess the tax stamp.

    What Bill just said up there ^^^.

    Assume your insert is from Kennesaw Cannon Co. They are rifled. Nothing to register with ATF, It is a pistol- nothing more- so long as it does not have a shoulder stock.

    This is a Pistol. No shoulder stock. And yes the insert is a rifled Kennesaw Cannon Co. product.
