ATF Form 3310.4 (December 2021)

ATF Form 3310.4 Revised 2021 December

Changes to ATF Form 3310.4 as of December 2021

Beginning with the revised ATF Form 3310.4 released in December of 2021, there are some changes to how you should fill out ATF Form 3310.4.

The form has been updated to include new information, highlighted in the attached screenshot. 

The Gun Control Act (GCA) of 1968 requires federal firearms licensees (FFLs) to send a report to ATF when multiple firearms are sold or otherwise transferred to the same non-licensee within a specific time.

ATF uses the information gathered from multiple sales transactions to investigate possible firearms trafficking cases. If one or more firearms recovered from a crime are part of a multiple purchase, this could indicate potential firearms trafficking. Crime guns recovered shortly after a multiple sale is known as a short time-to-crime ratio.

Under federal law, there are no recordkeeping requirements for transferring a firearm between two individuals who are not federal firearms licensees. However, some individuals cannot purchase or possess a firearm (known as prohibited persons). As a seller, you should make every effort to ensure you are not transferring a firearm to a prohibited person.

Licensees must report the sale of two or more handguns if they occur simultaneously or within five consecutive business days of each other.

Reporting Process for Pistols and Revolvers

  1. Fill out three copies of the Report of Multiple Sale or Other Disposition of Pistols and Revolvers.
  2. Send the first copy to the ATF National Tracing Center no later than the close of business on the day that the multiple sale or other disposition occurs. 
  3. Send the second copy to the Chief Local Law Enforcement Official (CLEO). The CLEO is a local or state official designated to receive this form. If you do not know your CLEO, contact your local ATF office to find out. 
  4. Attach the third copy to the corresponding Firearms Transaction Record ATF Form 4473, executed upon delivery of the pistols or revolvers [Regulation 478.126a]

27 CFR 478.126a Failure to report multiple sales or other dispositions of pistols and revolvers is still one of the most commonly cited violations FFLs face.
