It's a 200 dollar tax stamp to make it a AOW. Which is what you are making, when you put a forward grip on a pistol

Honestly, you would be better off making it a SBR (still a 200 dollar tax stamp) and have a buttstock put on it. then you would be free to shoot it with it on or off. With a AOW, you can't put a stock on it.

The forms you will need are 2ea of, form 1, (5320.1), F 5330.20, and FD-258-LE

all of which you can order from the ATF through their website, they come in a less then a week

The transfer tax for an AOW is $5, the tax for making said AOW is $200.

I allways thought a AOW was a $5.00 transfer????
Like Chef says, $200 to make, $5 to transfer. There may be a way around it - have it done by an FFL that doesn't have to pay the tax, then he can transfer it to you for $5. I think that's possible in some circumstances.

Yes, a 07 FFL / 02 SOT can make NFA items then transfer them to civilians.

So an 02 SOT can make the AOW, then transfer it to you for $5. But you're still stuck with an AOW which cannot have a shoulder stock.

I was asking around locally who can do receiver engravings last week and the gun store owner acted like I'd be nuts to engrave an AR-15 for an SBR unless I was selling it?

I'm assuming this has no clue what he's talking about and I do in fact need to engrave a reciever if I form 1 it for an SBR?

Engraving of NFA items is always a debate. HKPRO's policy is to allow people to post advice in its most conservative form.

As such, the maker of an NFA item is required to mark their firearm receiver, frame or barrel with the maker's name, City and State in a conspicuous manner.

There aren't many flat places on HK 9x series. The best I have seen is right above the rail.

Since you are paying $200, I would Short Barrel rifle it on the form 1.
You can add on the fore grip with either. Better to SBR it and be done.

If the actual maker of the firearm installs it prior to sending it to me. I have to pay a 5.00 tax stamp is this still on a form3? Or does it just transfer to me. Another words what do I have to do to finish the deal for buying this per say:

Do you know which FFL you're having it shipped to yet? Find which one you want to use, and give them a call. They'll walk you through the procedure.

Best solution is to find 07/02 near you (so you do not have to drive far, or ship it). Give him gun. He engraves it and makes it AOW on Form 2. He transfers it to you for $5 on Form 4.

Or you engrave it, make it on Form 1 for $200.

I agree with Renegade if you want just an AOW.

But if you ever want to put a shoulder stock on it, then you would be better off just submitting the Form 1 as an SBR and doing it yourself.
