Country of Manufacture

Written by Jarad on March 20, 2023

Licensed importers, type 08 and 11 FFLs, are required to record the country of manufacture when acquiring items. Not entering the country of manufacture will probably result in violations and potentially even administrative action against your license. 

 The regulation at 27 CFR 478.122(a) requires a licensed importer to record, within 15 days of the date of importation or other acquisition, the type, model, caliber or gauge, manufacturer, country of manufacture, and the serial number of each firearm imported or otherwise acquired, and the date of importation or other acquisition.
ATF Ruling 2016-1
