FFL risk management consultant
Your ATF Allies

Not Your Average FFL Expert

Imagine correcting 55+ year-old NFA Amnesty paperwork with serial number errors or lawfully handling machine guns outside of the scope of the NFA via Department of Defense (DOD) exemptions. Michael Kwiatkowski, the owner of FFL Expert, comes to you with experience. Mike is a retired Type 09 / Class III FFL/SOT who’s dealt in all classes and categories of firearms, including oddities such as Destructive Devices and both pre-86 and post-86 dealer sample machine guns.

Mike's business was built on providing expertise. This includes researching obscure areas to assist his clients, a review service for scarce/rare pieces and educating his clients about what to look for and things to avoid when searching for their personal "grail gun." FFL Expert was built on providing expertise and spotting problems before audit violations occur. If you’ve had a rough ATF audit, give us a call.

After retiring from Type 09 / Class III FFL/SOT, Mike never really left the industry. Today he describes himself as a risk management consultant. His area of expertise includes:

  • Consulting with clients who are just considering or first opening their own businesses as licensees.
  • Conducting mock audits to ensure compliance with local, state and federal laws.
  • Working with licensees to correct record-keeping errors.
