I just read the NFA Information thread & I wanna ask a question.

If I wanna buy a Super Shorty [ http://serbu.com/top/superShorty.php ],
I gotta pop 700 dollars + tax, and then a 200 dollar fed lic fee ?

So ... my $700 toy really costs me over $900 ??

Yep.

Cost of the gun + sales tax + NFA tax stamp= Happiness



EDIT: I am a dumbass, see DKings post.

It's not a short barreled shotgun. It's an any other weapon and so the tax is $5 not $200.

DOH.... I am an idiot.

DKing is correct, an AOW is only a $5 transfer.

My apologies to the OP, I had a brain fart.

Thanks for the help guys.

Wasn't going to spend $900+ dollars but for $700 ... I just might have to get one

"I gotta pop 700 dollars + tax, and then a 200 dollar fed lic fee ?"

A minor point but there is no federal license. It is a tax stamp. The dealer that sells it to you has the license.

Serbu did build some Super Shorties as SBS because some states don't allow AOWs

what are the laws on AOW? Do you need a class III to purchase? Also, if you don't need a class III to purchase AOW, what all CAN you get away with labeling that? Would it be possible to do up an 870 as an AOW, or is that always going to be considered a shotgun?

I don't understand. How can this NOT be classified as a "short-barreled shotgun?" Why "Any Other Weapon?"

PS How many rounds does it hold?

Basically, shotguns and rifles have shoulder stocks.

Pistols don't have shoulder stocks but they also don't have foregrips.

So, if you don't have a shoulder stock but do have a foregrip then not rifle, not shotgun, not pistol = any other weapon.

How can this NOT be classified as a "short-barreled shotgun?"

Because it never had a shoulder stock. Serbu started with a "virgin" receiver or a "pistol grip only" shotgun.


Why "Any Other Weapon?"


(e) Any other weapon

The term “any other weapon” means ... a pistol or revolver having a barrel with a smooth bore designed or redesigned to fire a fixed shotgun shell, ...

26 USC 5845

Would it be possible to do up an 870 as an AOW

Yes. You would need to start with a "virgin" receiver or a "pistol grip only" model.
