Q: We have a gun that we are sending off to get another class III manufacturer to have a integrated suppressor installed on it. The other company will be filling the class III with the ATF and then will be sending it back once done. I was told that we would take this in as a smithing ticket; even though, this gun would still be in our bound book. I am confused, because when we take guns in for smithing that is over 24 hours we have to bring these guns into our bound book. Would the other company that we are sending it to not have to bring the gun in under their bound book. What happens if the ATF shows up and we don’t have the gun present. Is a smithing ticket suffice enough for them? Would we have to have a smithing transfer done in our bound book before this gun was shipped to the other class III manufacturer.
