CLASS iiI & NFA ITEMS
What is a Class III or NFA Item?
A Class III/NFA item is a firearm accessory that is 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, chances are you are allowed to own a class III item in the state of Virginia.
VTSA carries suppressors from DEAD AIR SLIENCERS (as pictured) along with many other items. If there is a particular item you are searching for and we don't have it in stock we will find it for you!
