Recall inspection recommended. This license was only cited for one (1) violation due to not filing ATF Form 5300.11, Annual Firearms Manufacturing and Exportation Report ( AFMER ) timely. However, the FFL and two (2) of its responsible persons are associated with Gun Envy, LLC’s Type 07 FFL, which could have been revoked (reference Ul # 773015-2016-0222) due to 14 violations, including five (5) that explicitly involved the manufacturing of firearms and for falsification of documents associated with manufacturing. This FFL has not been used, but will become the inheritor of the inventory for both of Gun Envy, LLC’s licenses, so a recall inspection is recommended to ensure future compliance. Please note that most of the possible revocation of Gun Envy, LLC’s Type 07 FFL is due to falsification of records and due to illicit use by one redacted, former responsible person on that license. Records falsification was not conducted by Gun Envy Manufacturing, Inc.; nor was redacted ever a responsible person on this FFL. Further, steps have been taken to rectify errors. Due to the limitations of the current A&D record, it was possible for an employee with access (notably redacted) to enter firearms as manufactured or transferred without any of the other owners’ or employees’ knowledge. A new and more organized A&D record system has been purchased and implemented, which will further aid the owners to recognize illicit activity better. Finally, it should be stressed that all of Gun Envy, LLC’s FFLs will be going out of business anyway due to ownership of the business going to Gun Envy Manufacturing, Inc. Gun Envy Manufacturing, Inc. will not be involved in the manufacturing of receivers or any wholesale manufacturing; instead, the FFL will be used for gunsmithing, marking firearms for customers, and custom builds (e.g. building a rifle from stripped lower receiver or converting a rifle to a short-barrel rifle).
Licensee failed to report five multiple sales and failed to initiate a new NICS check after 30 days, which warrants a warning letter.
