    What form would I need to convert a firearm to a short-barreled shotgun? Is such a thing possible, or is it once a firearm, always a firearm?

    Youll need to fill out an ATF 5320.1 (Form-1) to manufacture a NFA item.

    https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/f...-and-register-firearm-atf-form-53201/download


    All firearms are “firearms”, but there’s different classifications of “firearms”...

    Read the following link to answer your “once a firearm always a firearm” question since you’d be taking a Title-1 (non-NFA item) firearm and making/manufacturing a Title-2 (NFA item) firearm from it.

    What is a Title 1 Firearm? What is a Title 2 Firearm?



    Hope that helps! :s0155:

    Are SBSs legal in WA? I recall back when they were working to legalize SBRs in WA there was talk about there not being support to legalize both at the same time. Never paid attention to how that turned out.

    SBS are not legal in Washington state so the BATFE will deny the Form 1.

    Well rats!
    Sorry about the vague "firearm" term That is what the V3 TAC 13 is designated as. I was hoping to put a stock on it but not if it involves going to jail.

    You want ATF Form 1 and supporting documents. It is actually super easy. The wait is, naturally a pain in the rump, but once done you can complete your build.

    I'm not sure I follow the question. If you are asking if an NFA-registered short-barrel shotgun can be reverted to a standard, Title I shotgun, yes. From the NFA Handbook:
