ATF’s grace period for registering pistol brace-equipped pistols, which they insist are SBRs, with a waiver of the $200 tax ends soon. For those who are abiding by ATF’s ruling rather than removing the pistol brace from their gun or choosing some other option, the simplest and most accurate way to file an ATF Form 1 is through Silencer Shop’s eForm 1 service, but you’re almost out of time! Silencer Shop’s press release follows:

Silencer Shop Extends Deadline for Tax-Free ATF Form 1 Submissions
New ATF Rule Affects All Owners of Pistol Brace-Equipped Firearms

Austin, TX (04/26/2023) – Nobody makes filing an ATF Form 1 to manufacture or assemble an NFA item easier, faster, or more accurate than Silencer Shop! But as quick as Silencer Shop’s process is, the time to file a Form 1 to register a pistol brace-equipped firearm as a short barreled rifle (SBR) and receive a waiver of the $200 tax is nearly up. In response to demand and in an effort to assist as many customers as possible in correctly and efficiently filing their forms, Silencer Shop has extended the tax-free submission deadline to the end of the day on May 16th (05/16/2023).

On January 31, 2023, ATF published new rules and guidelines related to firearms equipped with pistol stabilizing braces. These firearms, previously considered pistols, are now viewed by ATF as short barreled rifles except in extremely limited cases. Highly regulated by the National Firearms Act with severe penalties for non-compliance, short barreled rifles (SBRs) must be registered along with payment of a $200 tax. This registration and application process can be cumbersome and complicated, but the Silencer Shop eForm 1 system makes it as easy and error-free as humanly possible.

For owners of firearms with an attached pistol brace, ATF announced a 120-day forbearance period during which these guns can be registered as SBRs without the associated $200 tax. This also avoids what ATF asserts would otherwise be illegal possession of an NFA item, a felony that carries up to a 10-year prison sentence and a $250,000 fine.

Customers who already have a Silencer Shop account can file a Form 1 in just a couple of minutes. If you’re new to the Silencer Shop system, your submission will require fingerprints, a passport style photo (the Silencer Shop app makes taking and uploading that selfie extremely easy), some personal and/or trust information, and the relevant firearm information.

Customers looking to take advantage of the tax-free ATF Form 1 period via Silencer Shop’s streamlined eForm 1 service must purchase this service by the end of the day on May 16th (05/16/2023). All required information must be submitted in the Silencer Shop eForm 1 system by May 17th (05/17/2023) at 6:00 PM Central. This timing will allow Silencer Shop’s experienced compliance team to inspect and verify your application for accuracy and double-check that it is ready for final submission to ATF, prior to ATF’s cutoff of May 31st, without the sorts of minor typos and technical errors that so-often cause major approval delays.
