CLASS III & NFA ITEMS
What are Class III/NFA items?
Class III/NFA items are firearm accessories that are regulated by the ATF in accordance with the National Firearm Act of 1986.
These items include:
- Full Auto machine guns
- Suppressor (Silencers)
- Short barrel Rifles & Shotguns
- AOW (Any other Weapon)
Can I own a Class III item?
Common misconception is that these items are illegal. If you meet the criteria to own a regular firearm, most likely you are capable of qualifying to obtain a Class III item in the state of Virginia.
VTSA carries suppressors from DEAD AIR SLIENCERS (as shown in the picture) along with many other Class III items. If there is a particular item you are looking to obtain and we do not have it listed, contact us today.
