NFA TRUST FORMATION is a process of creating a Trust for the specific purpose of Purchasing Class III firearms and transferring Class III firearms. A NFA TRUST is specifically created to comply with the TItle II requirements in dealing with Class 3 firearms. Class 3 Firearms are items regulated by the National Firearms Act ( NFA) and are typically sound suppressors, silencers, short-barreled shotguns or shotguns, and machine guns.
Most NFA Trusts are formed to bypass a CLEO signature, but there are many additional advantages to purchasing class 3 firearms with a NFA Firearms Trust. These include dealing with issues of constructive possession, transfer of the assets upon death, and avoiding many of the improper purchases and transfers that contain criminal penalties.
