Well, 10 years in FederalPoundMeInTheAssPrison is a good deterrent.

To answer the original question, current wait times are 8-10 months for individual applications, 6-8 for "non-individual" entities (trusts, llcs, corps, etc). Nfatracker.com has user updated stats on wait times. My personal experience so far has been Application filed 2/18/14, stamp Approved 8/20/14 - right at 6 months (issued to a trust)., Application filed 7/16/14, pending 12/4/14...waiting final approval ??? Guessing in January.


I wouldn't bother with it, unless you are going to go the route of forming an entity to own the NFA items...to much hassle for an individual.

As far as the SBR? Meh...I too have a stripped lower that I was going to build an SBR (12" 5.7, fwiw)...but seems a lot of hassle for what amounts to a toy.
I wouldn't even consider it unless you plan to run a suppressor on it and then the idea has merit to me...because short barrels are LOUD. Obscenely loud.
If we could hunt with suppressors here, I'd build a 12" 6.8SPC, throw a can on it and rock, until then - not gonna eff with it.


Thanks for the advice maybe I'll build the 20" govt profile rifle I also want first and the SBR later down the road. Who knows with the way gun laws have been going in the last 10 years maybe in the next 10 years we will see the NFA sunset.


There has been some credible talk that suppressors might be removed from the definition of an NFA firearm, given the health and safety aspects of shooting suppressed and I think somewhere around 30! States are now legal to hunt with suppressors...it's just becoming more mainstream.

I think with the concealed weapon concern of sbr/sbs, they stay regulated.

Think about a 10" 870 with a Salvo for home defense??? Wicked.

Saw a picture of a 10" 870 that a guy kept in his nightstand. It'd be sweet, although shooting it would be a ****.

Then let's all hope that other states follow the suit of Montana. You can own a tax/BG check free SBR there as long as you're a resident and the SBR is made in Montana.

You should read your own link...the law has been successfully challenged by the ATF, and those claiming exemption under the law are in fact in violation of the NFA act and federal firearms laws.

I can make anything I want in my garage in Michigan, as long as no one finds out...same as in Montana or anywhere else.

I mixed your post with Dan's on the 6.8, which I would also love to have. Carry on

If I were to build an AR it would no doubt be in 6.8.

NFA wait times?

Postby DeadEye_Dan » Tue Dec 09, 2014 9:31 pm

110 gr bullet at 2600-2700 fps, recoil is nil, and it's capable of very good accuracy...what's not to love.

BTW, Stag makes a very nice factory 68 very reasonably priced.

And just to be consistent...you will really hate me now.

Damnit Dan, I already have blades on the way I can't handle anymore bad influence at the moment. Still have all the bookmarks to build the 6.8 rifle I want.

I prefer to keep all my guns in a caliber that I can afford large amounts of :lol:
