(A6) Does the GCA prohibit anyone
from making a handgun, shotgun
With certain exceptions a firearm
may be made by a nonlicensee provided it is not for sale and the maker
is not prohibited from possessing
firearms. However, a person is prohibited from assembling a nonsporting
semi-automatic rifle or nonsporting
shotgun from imported parts. In addition, the making of an NFA firearm
requires a tax payment and approval
by ATF. An application to make a
machinegun will not be approved
unless documentation is submitted
showing that the firearm is being
made for a Federal or State agency.
