NFA Purchases & Transfers

Michi-Gun is an authorized NFA (National Firearms Act) Class III dealer. NFA items generally include: 
  • Suppressors (silencers) 
  • Machine guns (manufactured before 1986) 
  • Short-barreled rifles (must meet Michigan's 26-inch rule) 
  • Short-barreled shotguns 
  • AOW’s (any other weapons) 
Devices that fit these categories are eligible for purchase and/or transfer in Michigan and are regulated by the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (BATFE). Suppressors are also legal to hunt with in Michigan see Legal Update
There are two ways to purchase NFA items: individual tax stamp or an NFA Trust. 
  • Individual tax stamp requirements: 
  • Complete (2) included BATFE Form 4s (5320.2) and sign in blue or black ink 
  • Obtain (2) passport photos and affix one to each Form 4; do NOT staple 
  • Make (1) photocopy of your completed Form 4 with passport photo affixed 
  • Complete (2) FBI Form FD-258s in blue or black ink 
  • Identify your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) 
  • Write a $200 check to the BATFE 
  • The device cannot be loaned to anyone else or stored at any other address. If any other person uses the device, the owner must be present. 
NFA trust requirements: 
  • Complete (2) BATFE Form 4s (5320.2) and sign in blue or black ink 
  • Make (1) photocopy of your completed Form 4 
  • Make (1) photocopy of your trust documentation 
  • Identify ALL responsible persons (including yourself) and per person: 
  • Complete (1) BATFE Form 5320.23 and sign in blue or black ink for each responsible person 
  • Obtain and affix to Form 5320.23 (do NOT staple) for each responsible person 
  • Make (1) photocopy of your completed Form 5320.23, with passport photo affixed, for each responsible person 
  • Complete (2) FBI Form FD-258s in blue or black ink for each responsible person 
  • Identify your local Chief Law Enforcement Officer (CLEO) 
  • Write a $200 check to the BATFE 
  • You can have several members in the trust, allowing the device(s) to be shared, loaned, and stored at any of the trustee’s addresses. 
  • If one trustee passes away, the other trustees still retain ownership of the device(s) listed in the trust. 
We recommend a local firm: Schaefer & Black in Frederick, MD for questions regarding NFA trusts. They can create your trust for a reasonable price. Please tell them the folks from Hendershot’s sent you! Please click here to visit their website. 
Wait times 
Wait times are estimates provided by BATFE. We have no control over the length of time BATFE takes to process applications. Currently, BATFE estimates approximately 8-10 months for approval. Again, this is only an estimate and may very due to circumstances at BATFE. 
If we do not have the suppressor in stock that you wish to purchase we are happy to order it for you. All NFA purchases/transfers require full payment in advance. Once your device is ordered, BATFE estimates approximately a 3 month wait before we receive it. This will be in addition to the approximate 8-10 month wait to transfer the device to you. 
If you purchase an NFA item from another dealer, we are happy to handle the transfer for you. Our fee is $150 and must be paid in full before we start your paperwork. Customers who purchase their device from Michi-Gun do not have to pay this transfer fee. 
We can only transfer NFA items for residents of Michigan. 
If you have questions please don't hesitate to give us a call: 586-296-2360
