Added: (M25) Does the owner of a registered
NFA firearm have to have any
evidence to show it is registered
lawfully to him or her?
Yes. The approved application received
from ATF serves as evidence
of registration of the NFA firearm in
the owner's name. This document
must be kept available for inspection
by ATF officers. It is suggested that a
photocopy of the approved application
be carried by the owner when the
weapon is being transported.

more than 10 years, or both. In addition,
any vessel, vehicle or aircraft
used to transport, conceal or possess
an unregistered NFA firearm is subject
