Revised July 2018
ATF Form 5300.11 Instructions
1. This form must be submitted annually for all Type 07 (manufacture of firearms), and Type 10 (manufacture of destructive devices) Federal Firearms Licenses, in compliance
with 18 U.S.C. § 923 (g)(5)(A). The AFMER is not a tax form - it is used for statistical purposes.
2. IMPORTANT: Even if no firearms have been exported or distributed into commerce, an annual report must still be filed. The current reporting period is for the previous
calendar year ending on December 31.
3. This form MUST be submitted by April 1st. Please retain a copy for your files.
4. When a manufacturing license is discontinued, submit this form no later than 30 days following the discontinuance of business; include the date of
discontinuance in Item 7.
5. You must identify/briefly describe all miscellaneous firearms accounted for in item 8j and/or item 9j.
6. (a) Export data in item 9 is not a sub-set of the data in item 8. They should be separate counts. For example, if you manufactured 10 pistols and distributed 7 of them into
commerce and exported the other 3, 7 should be reported in item 8, and 3 should be reported in item 9. However, if you manufactured 10 pistols and distributed 7 to
another licensed manufacturer and exported 3, 0 should be reported in item 8, and 3 should be reported in item 9.
(b) If a DSP-73 application was approved for an export, and thus the firearm was only exported temporarily, the export does not need to be reported on this form.
7. This form must be executed (signed) by a person authorized to sign and be responsible for the completeness and accuracy of the information furnished.
8. If at any time after filing your report you discover an error in what you reported, please submit a corrected AFMER. Be sure to write "Amended Report" across the top of
the corrected report and be sure to indicate the correct calendar year for which you are reporting.
9. Submission of the completed form can only be submitted in two acceptable formats:
• Electronically submit via eForms: www.atf.gov/firearms/application-eforms
(Electronic submissions MUST be completed by an active responsible person on the license and requires a one-time registration process and authorized ATF approval
which can take a few days)
• OR - Mail this form to: ATF-FFLC, AFMER program, 244 Needy Road, Martinsburg, WV 25405
(If you mail in your form you will not receive confirmation of receipt.)
HELP WITH AFMER:
• General questions regarding form completion: Call customer service @ 866-662-2750
• Questions regarding the functionality of the E-Form system. i.e. registration, associating FFL through E-Forms, or submissions please email questions only to
eforms.admin@atf.gov (DO NOT send forms by email - forms accepted via mail or eForms only - see #9 above)
Definitions
1. Produced - Firearms (to include separate frames or receivers, actions or barreled actions) manufactured during the reporting calendar year that weredistributed into
commerce or exported. Separate frames or receivers, actions or barreled actions, are to be included in this report - when they are exported or distributed into commerce
to someone other than a licensed manufacturer. A manufacturer who uses such items manufactured by another licensed manufacturer, who then distributes the completed
firearm into commerce or exports the firearm, must include the firearms in this report. In this scenario, the previous manufacturer didn't distribute it into commerce or
export it out of the U.S. so they would not report the firearm - the last manufacturer distributed it into commerce or exported it, so they report it. GCA to NFA conversions on
previously owned firearms should also be reported.
Exceptions (Enter a "0"/zero if your firearms fall under any of the following):
a. Firearms manufactured but NOT distributed into commerce or exported;
b. Firearms distributed to another licensed manufacturer (FFL Type 07 or Type 10). Those firearms will be reported by the Type 07 or Type 10 FFL who finally distributes
the firearms into commerce, or exports them;
c. Firearms received solely for the purpose of the manufacturer to act as a Dealer, thus only receiving the firearm for purposes of transferring;
d. Firearms remanufactured or customized that were previously in the possession of a non-manufacturer;
e. Firearms incorporating frames or receivers of foreign manufacture;
f. Firearms produced solely for the official use of the Armed Forces of the United States;
g. Destructive devices as defined under 18 U.S.C. § 921(a)(4) and 26 U.S.C. § 5845(f) - see definition #3 below; or
h. Antique firearms as defined under 18 U.S.C. § 921 (a)(16) - see definition #4 below.
2. Commerce - a purchase or sale, business deal or transaction, within or between any of the following: a State of the United States; District of Columbia; U.S. Territory or
possession.
3. Destructive Device - (A) any explosive, incendiary, or poison gas - (i) bomb, (ii) grenade, (iii) rocket having a propellant charge of more than four ounces, (iv) missile
having an explosive or incendiary charge of more than one-quarter ounce, (v) mine, or (vi) device similar to any of the devices described in the preceding clauses; (B) any
type of weapon (other than a shotgun or a shotgun shell which the Attorney General finds is generally recognized as particularly suitable for sporting purposes) by whatever
name known which will, or which may be readily converted to, expel a projectile by the action of an explosive or other propellant, and which has any barrel with a bore
of more than one-half inch in diameter; and (C) any combination of parts either designed or intended for use in converting any device into any destructive device described
in subparagraph (A) or (B) and from which a destructive device may be readily assembled. The term"destructive device" shall not include any device which is neither
designed nor redesigned for use as a weapon; any device, although originally designed for use as a weapon, which is redesigned for use as a signaling, pyrotechnic, line
throwing, safety, or similar device; surplus ordnance sold, loaned, or given by the Secretary of the Army pursuant to the provisions of section 4684(2), 4685, or 4686 of
title 10; or any other device which the Attorney General finds is not likely to be used as a weapon, is an antique, or is a rifle which the owner intends to use solely for
sporting, recreational or cultural purposes.
