    So I'm about to send out my lower and just wanted to confirm the requirements.

    7.4.2 of the NFA handbook says the caliber is required in addition to the other info.

    Is that correct? What if the lower is already marked Multi Cal?

    So I would need to engrave?

    ABC NFA TRUST
    CITY STATE
    CALIBER

    I thought only the Trust Name, City and State were required?

    Do I need to put a comma between the city and state?

    Any guidance would be much appreciated as this is my first one. :D

    Thanks General Patton.

    I checked the lower and the Caliber is not marked yet. I indicated 300BLK on the ATF Form 1.

    So can I still mark the Lower Caliber-Multi or do I need to put 330BLK. I'd prefer to use Multi so I could change it in future.

    If u put multi you will get your paper work back. Pick one 5.56 , .223 , .300 .They want a specific caliber. Doesn't matter which one put. 300 and do not put blk after it. I know multi will not work I got paper work back because of this. There is no such thing as multi caliber on their books. It does not matter what caliber upper is on the gun so long as its not a permanent change. If you decide down the road you want a permanent change you place a call to the BATFE and change it.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    I already sent in the ATF Form 1 last November and put 330 BLK on it. I hope including the BLK isn't an issue on the form.

    My question is regarding the engraving though. Nothing is currently engraved on the lower for Caliber so do I need to engrave the caliber and if I do does it need to match the Form 1 I sent in ro can it say Multi? I know some lowers already come engraved with Multi so had I used one of the those I imiagine I would not need to add ro change.

    No, you dont need to engrave the caliber in the lower , leaving it multi is fine ,
    All you need to engrave is exactly what it says on your trust and exactly what you put on the paperwork .

    If your just doing a individual

    The BATFE has changed a few rules they used to let you use abbreviations for your trust and they do not allow this any more .They dont allow this below, Must be spelled as you listed on the proper form like above

    If they think any mistake on the form, they will send it back to you within a month before the due date. Send back a newly revised form with the date u put on the original form. 2 weeks later..voila it will be back on track.
    Happened to me twice. And both stamps found a new home 2 weeks later.

    Thanks okdonk! :)


    I'm almost glad it's gonna take me awhile to find an upper reciever and LPK because at least now it's not JUST the stamp I'm waiting for! LOL

    you will know when you get either your paperwork back to correct or the approval. And by the way, if they send it back to you to correct errors, when you send back to the NFA, only takes 2-4 weeks or less to receive the approval
