AFMER - ATF Form 5300.11
Answers to common questions about the Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Report.
My AFMER submission appears in the “SUBMITTED / IN PROCESS” folder in eForms. When will it be finalized?
I have already filed my AFMER for this year. Why did I still receive a letter and form in the mail?
I am having issues with eForms. Who can help me?
What is "production" and what should I report on my AFMER form?
If I manufacture a gun and export it to another country, should I report it under section 8, section 9, or both section 8 and 9 of the AFMER form?
If I purchase a firearm and manufacture/remanufacture it into a different firearm, do I need to report this as production on my AFMER form?
I am a manufacturer and I gave my receiver to another manufacturer to complete and sell; should I report the receiver on my AFMER form?
I receive a firearm receiver/frame from another licensed manufacturer with the intention to incorporate it into a complete firearm that I will sell, but later I decide to sell the receiver as is. Must I report this on my AFMER form?
If I manufacture a weapon, but do not sell or export it, do I still need to report it on the AFMER form?
Do I need to file an AFMER form even if I didn’t manufacture any firearms last year?
