    What’s the process involved?

    This is for a few short - barrelled rifles and suppressors.

    I heard that a certain form needs to be mailed, and one needs to wait for acknowledgment from the ATF.

    If anyone could further expound on this, that would be great...

    With a question that could affect you liberty or lack thereof for the next ten years, I strongly suggest that you call you local ATF office and get the information from the source.

    Good Luck

    You fill out a Form 5320.20 for the SBR's: https://www.atf.gov/firearms/docs/f...ily-export-certain-national-firearms/download
    Silencer and AOWs do not need permission.

    Pretty much common knowledge in the NFA community about the Form 5320.20......no need to call The Man.

    IIRC, you need a Form 5, and it's not a permission--they will not send you back an acknowledgement)--it's an administrative form.

    oops, Dogtown Tom beat me to it.

    Form 5 is definitely not the one to use.
    F5's are tax exempt and only for:
    Firearm is unserviceable and is being transferred as a curio or ornament
    Firearm is being transferred to or from a Government Entity
    Firearm is being transferred to a lawful heir or by operation of law


    Yes, they will return it. Otherwise the applicant will have no idea if he was approved.

    This reminds me that when we moved to PA I got the response back for my 5320.20 from the ATF the same week my wife got a letter from the DEA about her new DEA registration number. I wonder what the mailman was thinking...

    They're legal where you're going right?

    Form 5320.20.
    But it is supposed to be submitted before you move so you have a copy, in hand, to cross State lines.
    Of course, they must be legal to own in the State you are moving to.
    That form also acts a a change of permanent address for your stamps in the ATF system.
