Answers to common questions about the Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Export Report.
What is production and what should I report?
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 form?
If I purchase a firearm and manufacture/remanufacture it into a different firearm, do I need to report this as production?
I am a manufacturer and I gave my receiver to another manufacturer to complete and sell; should I report the receiver?
I receive a firearm receiver/frame from another licensed manufacturer with the intention to incorporate the receiver/frame into a complete firearm that I will sell, but later I decide to sell the receiver as is. Must I report this on my form?
If I manufacture a weapon, but do not sell or export it, do I still need to report it?
Do I need to file a report even if I didn’t manufacture any firearms last year?
I have a license to manufacture destructive devices (type 10 FFL), but based on the form instructions destructive devices do not need to be reported. Should I stop filing?
When the notice is sent out, what year is ATF requesting?
Is it okay to send in my report before the calendar year has ended?
