I'm wanting to buy a gemtech silencer for a .22lr. I live in a free state and i would love to go the NFA route. BUT... i was an idiot teenager once upon a time and i'm curious if anyone knows what types of things preclude somone from being approved?

I can buy a firearm, is it more than that?

ADDENDUM: I understand what NFA items are, i understand about the tax stamps, the back ground investigations, fingerprints, photo's, signatures etc. i'm more interested in background check flags.

Never applying for one would be the first major delay.

Can you fill out a 4473 from a dealer to buy a firearm?

yes. I guess I should have clarified. I can pass the normal background investigation on a 4473 to purchase handguns and rifles. My only question i guess was how much more in depth is a NFA background investigation than a regular NCIS check?

If you can buy a handgun from an FFL, complete the form 4473, answer the questions honestly of course, you will be approved for NFA transfers. You can look at a form-4 on the ATF website.

I don't know the "exact" circumstance but I was shooting suppressed her in Texas and met a gentleman who told me he had recently been denied Form 4 approval but could by firearms. I did not ask him what he had done, but he did report being "young and dumb". Don't know how accurate his story was, for all I know he bought his guns via the gun show loop hole :dunno:

Or he lies on the 4473?


If someone looks at the questions on the Form-4 and can answer them with the non-disqualifying yes/no answers, it should be approved.

An NFA item is just a firearm. It holds no special firearm class that require a "more-law-abiding-person to own". So I'm confused too on that one! I'd have asked what he was denied for just to be nosy.
