    Hi Folks,

    I've seen different answers posted on the web and I don't know what is correct. Do I have to ship a 50 cal new muzzle loader to an FFL? Thanks in advance.

    I live in Wa. State and shipped two to the guy I sold them to in New York. No FFL involved what so ever. I shipped them UPS two years ago. Bill

    If it is the Thompson Center Encore the receiver has to be registered hence has to be shipped to an FFL.

    It is an Encore. I guess that takes care of it. Thanks.

    While under federal law, no FFL is required for a muzzle loader, watch out for state and local laws, as in some cases these local laws do control muzzle loaders I believe. If in any doubt or you do not know the local/state laws at both ends of the shipment, check to be sure it is lawful both ways.

    Encore's require FFL because they can be used as a Pistol.

    . . . along with Contender's too because they along with Encores can be used as a pistol or a breach loading cartridge rifle.
