    I carry a copy of the paperwork that has my photo and the tax stamp with my M16. The original stays in my safe. I was looking at it today and the address on it is for a business location I am no longer at.

    Question...do I need to update the address? If so, how?

    Thanks

    You just notify NFA branch in writing.

    Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
    National Firearms Act Branch
    244 Needy Road
    Martinsburg, West Virginia 25405 USA
    Voice (304) 616-4500
    Fax (304) 616-4501

    That's assuming the change was in state. If you moved to another state well, you may have a bit of a legal problem if you didn't file a 5320.20.

    Yes you need to tell them, but don't expect a quick response.

    See: http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=539148

    Just to let you know, they won't send you a new or ammended form or anything like that. All you get is a letter saying thanks for helping update our records.

    I just got my 5320-20 back from the ATF after 6 months. They didn't send a letter, they returned the original form back to me with 3, (count them 3) different signatures.
