    Considering trying to get a stamp and make an SBR, I've always stayed away from anything requiring a stamp due to paranoia. People saying they will come knock on your door to inspect where item is stored etc. Any advice for someone considering going for a SBR/NFA item? Go easy on me, I am new to anything NFA.

    Thanks!

    Your 4th amendment rights prevent that from happening.
    Get one on a gun trust while you can and also buy a suppressor at the same time.

    Don't wait a second to file your Form 1 for a SBR.
    The NFA won't come to your house.

    :cool:
    Applied for my 1st stamp in October of 2015. Just submitted my 3rd... (SBS).
    It's fun, and addicting. Tons of guides online on how to get it done. Jump on the trust route while you still can!

    thanks all, I never really thought they would come knocking just wasn't sure what to expect once I went down that road, other than an empty bank account.

    Don't I have to pay for the item and the processing fee at the same time?

    A form 1 for an SBR would be a $200.00 tax stamp fee submitted to the ATF, and once it's approved you then build the firearm.
    A suppressor is generally bought and paid for, then the form 4 is submitted to the ATF with the $200.00 tax stamp fee.

    Really what I want to do is shoot suppressed so you're saying the best way to do that is to purchase a suppressor and then pay the tax stamp fee and then wait till all that clears then I get my suppressor?

    Sounds like essentially I have to pay 800 bucks and then wait a year or so for it to clear

    4 months is about the wait time right now. Get-um while you can.

    Forgive me but I've never owned an NFA item and this is the first time I'm looking into it I am under the impression that the best way to do that is through a firearms trust is that true? Where can I look for good information not just some internet hack trying to be an expert?
