An individual who is not prohibited by Federal, State, or local law from receiving or possessing firearms may lawfully obtain an NFA firearm either through an approved transfer of a registered NFA firearm from its lawful owner, or an approved making of an NFA firearm. Applicants should use the ATF Form 4, Application for Tax Paid Transfer and Registration of a Firearm and the ATF Form 1, Application to Make and Register a Firearm, respectively.
