Trusts & Attorneys


NFA / Title II (also known as Class 3) weapons can be transferred or titled to an individual or other legal entity such as a trust or corporation. An NFA trust is a customized revocable living trust to ensure compliance with Title II/Class 3/NFA firearms. Filing your NFA weapon with a trust has many benefits over filing as an individual:
  • Co-trustees may have access to NFA weapons
  • Firearms are inherited outside of the probate process and do not require ATF forms or intervention in the event of death
  • Trusts are flexible and may be amended without ATF involvement
  • Privacy - the NFA trust is not a public document and does not require filing with your state of residence
  • Estate planning benefits


41f did not change the benefits of using a Gun Trust and Capitol Armory continues to recommend a NFA trust rather than transferring as an individual. Transferring to an existing corporation is another option worth considering, but if you are considering setting up a corporate entity for the sole purpose of obtaining NFA / Title II weapons, it's usually quicker, easier, and cheaper to go the trust route. The trust can be set up before or after purchasing an NFA item from Capitol Armory, but it must be established before Form 4 filing.
