Q. Can you build me an SBR (Short-Barreled Rifle)?

A. No, Vanguard Gunworks is not licensed to deal with Class 3 or NFA firearms. However, we can build you an AR pistol and you can then file a Form 1 with the ATF to obtain a tax stamp for you to convert your AR platform pistol to an SBR, a rifle with a barrel less than 16".

Q. Can you help me ship a gun to New York (NY, NJ, MA, CA, etc) ?

A. There are some states that have restrictions on the firearms that are legal within their borders. More often than not, the guns you have are found to be ok in those states. Vanguard Gunworks will verify with your provided FFL in that location to ensure the firearms to be shipped will be accepted by them before any transfer is attempted. This saves time, confusion, and money for you. See Outgoing under FFL Transfers for further info.
