Types of FFLs

Dano wants to know what the types of FFL are, and about C&R. So here they are:

Type 01 – Dealer in Firearms
Type 02 – Pawnbrokers
Type 03 – Collectors of Curios and Relics
Type 06 – Manufacturer of Ammunition for Firearms
Type 07 – Manufacturer of Firearms
Type 08 – Importer of Firearms or Ammunition
Type 09 – Dealer in Destructive Devices
Type 10 – Manufacturer of Destructive Devices
Type 11 – Importer of Destructive Devices

The only one you can get being an ordinary collectors is the type 03 FFL, Collector of Curios and Relics. What are defined as:

  • Firearms that were manufactured at least 50 years prior to the current date, but not including replicas thereof;
  • Firearms which are certified by the curator of a municipal, State, or Federal museum which exhibits firearms to be curios or relics of museum interest; and
  • Any other firearms which derive a substantial part of their monetary value from the fact that they are novel, rare, bizarre, or because of their association with some historical figure, period, or event. Proof of qualification of a particular firearm under this category may be established by evidence of present value and evidence that like firearms are not available except as collector’s items, or that the value of like firearms available in ordinary commercial channels is substantially less.

The ATF publishes a list of C&R eligible firearms, though anything over 50 years old is automatic C&R, listed or no. If they are on the list, you can order them from other FFLs, and have them shipped direct to you. You don’t have to fill out 4473, or go through the Brady checks. There are paperwork requirement, and you can be audited by the ATF for compliance with the regulations.

    Thank you, nicest list I’ve seen yet.

  2. It’s CURIOS and Relics. All guns over 50 years old do NOT automatically become curios and relics. They must be on the Curios and Relics list of the ATF.

    If you want more information, see http://www.cruffler.com, a website dedicated to C&R license holders.

    Just a typo Blue. I’ll fix in a second. But you aren’t correct about having to be on the list. From cruffler:

    Type 03 license is restricted to receiving firearms that have been classifed by the BATF as “Curios or Relics.” That is, any firearm that was demonstrably manufactured 50 years or more prior to the current date, and/or is on a special “Curios or Relics List” published by the BATF.

    Emphasis mine. It can either be on the ATF list, be demonstrably older than 50 years, or both. Some are both. But if you can show conclusively the firearm isn’t newer than 50 years, it’s C&R by default.
