Re: NFA Form 5 transfer - heirs
Bob, I`ll try to help. First "never" surrender them to anyone. You do not mention your State and even though it is legal in your State as proof of ownership proves this; laws very.
Some States allow the transfer within the family for no charge ($200.00 NFA TAX) as long as they/you can pass a background check for regular firearms.
You will still have to provide the same information that was required to own these as in the begining.
She can sell them outright to a Class II/III dealer, expect no less than 80/85% or retail OR move on.
They can also be transfered to you through the estate as mentioned above for a small fee, you may have to pay the NFA tax, that I am unsure of.
Any Class II/III worth his salt can guide you best and what will or won`t work. Above all don`t get taken and get several opinions from several dealers.
Like anything else some know more than others.
Good luck and keep them in the family, a wonderful investment grade weapon never returns once gone.
