In 2021, Nevada enacted a comprehensive ghost gun law.

As of January 1, 2022, it will be unlawful in Nevada for any person other than a licensed firearms importer or manufacturer to possess, purchase, transport, receive, sell, offer to sell, or transfer an unfinished frame or receiver unless it is required by federal law to be imprinted with a serial number issued by a firearms importer or manufacturer and has been imprinted with the serial number.1

Additionally, a person shall not manufacture, assemble, possess, sell, offer to sell, transfer, purchase, transport, or receive a firearm that is not imprinted with a serial number issued by a firearms importer or manufacturer in accordance with federal law and regulations.2

Prior to January 1, 2022, a person may sell an unfinished frame or receiver or firearm that is not imprinted with a serial number to a firearms importer or manufacturer or a licensed dealer.
