We will not be creating firearms, only accessories. The full name I want to create is "Borden Firearms Accessories".

You should always run a GOOGLE search on any proposed new company name to make sure it is available for use. I see that there are "Borden Rifles" for sale - www.bordenrifles.com - so they may object to your new company name.

It is my understanding that you can create a business using that name but you'll have the burden of convincing the ATF that you?re not selling firearms. Check with the ATF for specifics.
