Safehouse Defense and our team of FFL specialists will walk you through the process of filing your ATF Form 1 to make and register a Short Barreled Rifle (SBR) or Shotgun. Due to a recent unprecedented move by the ATF to reclassify firearms equipped with pistol-stabilizing braces as Short Barrel Rifles, more than 40+ million firearms will be considered illegal SBRs without registration.

One of the only realistic ways to comply with this new decision is to register the firearm as a legal Short Barrel Rifle (vs. destroying the firearm or surrendering it to an ATF field office – yikes!). Safehouse Defense and our team of experts will help you through every step of filling out the form, acquiring a HIGHLY beneficial NFA Trust if needed, and meeting the additional requirements set forth by the ATF.

At our Scottsdale office, our team will review all documents prior to submission to ensure there are no issues before moving forward. This is NOT the task to take on alone! All ATF Form 1 consults will include the following:


Personalized guidance on which method to file under (Individual, Trust etc.)
Discounted rate on NFA trusts
Complete start-to-finish walkthrough of the ATF Form 1
Review of the additional requirements to maintain compliance
Next Steps worksheet with firearm engraving information

Local engraving resources and referrals if needed
