NFA Firearms

We would like to thank ATFMachinegun for their continued support! ATFMachinegun carries a large selection of NFA Firearms.

NFA Firearms, NFA Weapons
What weapons & firearms fall into the NFA Firearm Classification?

Machine guns
Includes any firearm which can fire more than 1 cartridge per trigger pull. Both continuous fully automatic fire and "burst fire" (i.e., firearms with a 3-round burst feature) are considered machine gun features.

Short barreled rifles (SBRs)
Includes any firearm with a buttstock and either a rifled barrel under 16" long or an overall length under 26". The overall length is measured with any folding or collapsing stocks in the extended position. The category also includes firearms which came from the factory with a buttstock that was later removed by a third party.

Short barreled shotguns (SBSs)
Defined similarly to SBRs, but the length limit for the barrel is 18" instead of 16", and the barrel must be a smoothbore. The minimum overall length limit remains 26".

Includes any portable device designed to muffle or disguise the report of a portable firearm. This category does not include non-portable devices, such as sound traps used by gunsmiths in their shops which are large and usually bolted to the floor.

Destructive Devices (DDs)
There are two broad classes of destructive devices:

- Devices such as grenades, bombs, explosive missiles, poison gas weapons, etc.

- Any non-sporting firearm with a bore over 0.50", such as a 40mm grenade launcher often used in conjunction with military rifles. (Many firearms with bores over 0.50", such as 12-gauge shotguns, are exempted from the law because they have been determined to have a legitimate sporting use.)

Any Other Weapons (AOWs)
This is a broad "catch-all" category used to regulate any number of firearms which the ATF deems deserving of registration and taxation.
