MGS™ Permits and other reasons why we are the only ones that can do what we do.
Under NYS law, the only entity allowed to possess their inventory of pistols and revolvers (firearms) away from their licensed premise for reasons other then to or from an NRA gun show are state licensed manufacturers of firearms. Gun Handlers must be employees of a manufacturer of NFA firearms and possess a state issued Carry pistol license issued for gun handling work. We are licensed by the NYS Police as a manufacturer of firearms. All our employees possess pistol licenses specifically for our business.
|We are also the only company to hold a New York State Police Theatrical Dealer-In-Firearms License.|
As a federally licensed manufacturer of NFA firearms, we are allowed to transport and possess National Firearms Act firearms anywhere in the country in furtherance of our business. Under federal law, the US Department of Commerce has jurisdiction over prop guns. They issue a written waver of federal regulations (15 CFR 1150.4) for those entities who are genuine providers and users of such props. In October of 1996, we were granted a Waver for the Use, Manufacturer and Sale of Imitation Guns to be used in the Theater, Television or Movie Industries. This is required of all firearm prop dealers.
Before you hire some other company, check if they're fully licensed to work in all of New York State. Any violations of local, state and federal laws will expose your production to civil and criminal liabilities. For those who wish to use an out-of-state Theatrical dealer's inventory, we can arrange to Movie Industry Transfer (MIT) their firearms to us for use within New York State.
