Anyone have an idea what it costs for an attorney to set up an NFA trust?

Varies a lot. You want an attny that knows NFA trusts (which are a bit different than a standard trust)

I found a person on the other side of the state that did nine for $300. Going rate in the "big city" was $800-$1000 so ask around

I believe my buddy spent around a grand on his, but it supposedly has the guarantee that if his trust is actually challenged by law, the attny will represent him gratis.

There are MANY examples of people rolling their own using Quicken Willmaker or similar...while they may or may not pass the inspection of the BATFE they may not stand up in court. (the willmaker type trusts are generic and not NFA specific)

If you're gonna be stupid, don't pull up short. Saddle up and ride it all the way in.

Everyone has a use in life. Even if it is only to serve as a bad example

As they were probably considered Curios and Relics. IIRC short barreled rifles were regulated and taxed with the NFA of 1934. Though I could be wrong, the regs may have changed in 1968.

I do know while there is a ton of good information on stuff here at ADV, this isn't the place I'd be looking for my information. I'd start at a website dedicated to NFA firearms.
They're nihilists, Donny, nothing to be afraid of.

The initial call to the Florida firm results in an affiliated lawyer in your own state calling you back and writing the Trust so as to comply with your state's laws.
