Buying an NFA item
A guide to buying an NFA item.

At Lowell Armory, we offer a Gun Trust free to all of our customers. In fact, 9 out of every 10 customers choose to purchase their Class 3 NFA firearms through our Gun Trust.

The major benefits to a Gun Trust allow you to create “joint legal ownership” in which you can legally share your silencer with family members. You can also select who will inherit your NFA firearms to protect those assets. By following our proven Gun Trust, we ensure the ATF won’t reject your paperwork. To discuss more benefits in detail, contact a member of our service team at 855-7-LOWELL.
