Certain firearms require special registration before they may be transferred. These firearms include, Machine guns, Short-Barreled Rifles, Short-Barreled Shotguns, Silencers (Suppressors), Destructive Devices and “any other weapons” as that term is used in the National Firearms Act (i.e. Title II of the Gun Control Act of 1968).
If you are thinking of owning a NFA regulated firearm you should consider forming a NFA gun trust. Not all trusts will afford the protection of the specialized trusts that we offer. Make certain that you specifically inform your attorney that you intend for the trustee to take possession of a NFA regulated firearm. If the attorney you are working with does not automatically know what you are referring to then you should find an attorney that does. At Smith Tortorich, we have developed our NFA gun trust to provide maximum protection and flexibility. Call us today to set up a Gun Trust for your next NFA firearm transfer.
