ATF Q&A: A&D Books

What importer should be entered into the A&D book when the foreign manufacturer and the importer have the same company name?

Imported firearms are required to be engraved with both the name of the foreign manufacturer and the name of the domestic importer, even if they are the same company. Therefore, the names as marked on the firearm for the manufacturer and for the importer are the names that should be entered into the A&D Book.
