Class III / NFA weapons such as suppressors, short barreled rifles or shotguns & destructive devices carry a $200 tax. AOWs carry a $5 tax. This tax is payable when we send out your Form 4 to the BATFE. The NFA Division of BATFE will take anywhere from 4-6 months to process and return your application with the $200 or $5 tax stamp. Be aware that the process can take longer than 12 months. Once that arrives at our store, your weapon is ready to go home with you. Just come in to the store and you’re set to go!
