ATF Form 1

There has been a massive growing demand for National Firearms Act (NFA) items such as short-barreled rifles, short-barreled shotguns, and silencers. Many Americans have decided to build their own NFA firearms using the ATF Form 1.

The Form 1 is used to convert an AR lower into a short-barreled rifle (SBR), allowing you to use an upper receiver with a barrel length shorter than 16” The Form 1 can also be used for any other rifle with a barrel longer than 16”, and to create short-barreled shotguns (SBS), destructive devices, and any other weapons (AOW).
