ATF Form 10, Application for Registration of Firearms Acquired by Certain Governmental Entities - also known as the ATF E-Form 10 or ATF Form 5320.10 - is a form used to register a firearm obtained by a state or local governmental agency. The firearm must be registered if the agency is planning to keep it in possession. The firearms that are used as evidence in a criminal proceeding and will be destroyed or abandoned when they are no longer needed, do not require registration. The completed form must be submitted in duplicate.
The most recent version of this form was issued by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) in May 2017. A fillable ATF form 10 is available for download below.
The form must be used to register firearms and other items regulated by the National Firearms Act (NFA). The NFA covers the following items: short-barreled shotguns and weapons made of such shotguns, machineguns, short-barreled rifles and weapons made of them and any other weapons except pistols and revolvers with a rifled bore. The act also regulates silencers and mufflers and explosive devices, such as grenades, bombs, and other similar items.
