Michigan NFA Trust Attorneys

Gun trusts are an efficient way to pass your guns and accessories to your family without the necessity of refiling federal and state firearm transfer documents. Additionally, a gun trust allows you to own specialized guns and accessories such as machine gun silencers.

What is NFA? The National Firearms Act regulates Class 3 weapons, a class that includes:

  • All fully automatic and select fire weapons
  • Short-barreled rifles and shotguns
  • Sound suppressors (silencers)

Why Do You Need a Gun Trust?

Several Chief Law Enforcement Officers (CLEO) refuse to sign the necessary paperwork to obtain a NFA weapon. A properly created gun trust avoids the CLEO sign off requirement.

Certain accessories, such as a specialty holster, can turn a very common gun, such as a .22 pistol, into a Class 3 weapon. That is why a gun trust can be beneficial even if you do not have a specialty collection. With the ongoing gun control debate in Congress, guns that are not currently regulated by NFA could be placed at risk if they are not in a gun trust. Having a gun trust protects your family from the possibility of having to surrender your guns and accessories once you are gone.
