Class III ATF question

    After you legally buy and register a class III firearm (say a transferrable submachine gun), what can the ATF do as far as inspection? Can they come to your house and look at the gun and the registration papers?

    Nope. If you register an NFA firearm they can't do anything more than normal.

    My understanding is that they cannot.


    I had read that there were some circumstances where they can "search your home" / perform inspection, but IIRC it had to do with being a Class III dealer that stores the weapons at his home. Something like that anyway.

    Someone who knows for sure want to confirm or correct that for me?

    *EDIT* may have answered it myself. Found the link in my bookmarks:
