Do AR's?

Do AR's require FFL tranfers when selling?

Thanks

Re: Do AR's?

Is it a pistol or a long arm?

If you are selling a AR15 semi auto type long gun to a law abiding resident of PA no FFL is required. It is no different than any other long gun.

I thought barrel length is the key. I thought under 18 inch barrel was considered a pistol and had to be transferred?

Re: Do AR's?

Under 16" for a rifle and 18" for a shotgun is what you are thinking, Octagon. Under those lengths you must start the process of SBR or SBS.

If the lower of the AR in question is registered as a pistol then it needs to be transferred by an FFL. If the lower is registered as a rifle then a resident of PA may purchase the rifle through a private sale.

If you buy a stripped lower to build, the 4473 form is marked as "other."
