ive already got it filled out. im stopping by the jail tomorrow to talk to the Sheriff(who happens to be related) to have him fill out the "local leo" section on the back. Get the fingerprint part done then a 2x2 photo and I can mail it off. I just wanted to be sure I had the right form filled out haha

NFA transfer

Did a transfer form Tennessee to Texas and then filled out all appropriate paper work and sent it in. Being a Class III fireatrms owner now, I'd think it would be fairly quick? This was started Nov 24, 2008 and now waiting on the transfer to me since April 14. Anybody experiencing this type slowdown?
I have NO problems and ALL the paperwork it correct. What's the deal?

Mine are averaging around 6-9 weeks for a Trust. Without the fingerprints & sign-off nonsense it goes alot quicker.

I do mine through my corporation and the wait time has been 4-6 months

yeah i did 4 sets of paperwork on a trust about 90 days ago. got 2 machine guns paperwork approved in 44 days and 50 days, I am still waiting on the paperwork for the reising (it is a receiver and parts but listed a complete gun since the previous owner took it apart to clean and then he died and his idiot family lost the stock and barrel) and the firecontrol group for another project

Well I just called this morning and my paperwork was approved on 10/9. So it should be just a little bit more for it to be ready for pick-up.

Wait time

Sent paperwork in April 14 and got approval Sept 14. Paperwork trickles down s l o w l y. Picked up my AC556 yesterday, Oct 22. ATF kept telling me they were waiting on fingerprints to come back from FBI. Funny thing was that ATF has me on file and have a number of prints they could quickly peek at to KNOW it was me....
L O N G wait, but worth it in the end when I got to fondle my new (looks to be unfired w/box and manual) AC 556.

Funny. I was reading a thread similar to this on SilencerTalk. The thread had been going for a couple of years. The begining of the thread was from back in 2007 and people were complaining at that time about the 30 day turn- around times that their forms were taking.
I would love to see those kind of time frames again.

Well, if the wait on the last one wasn't long enough, I started the process all over again today. Purchased a Gemtech Halo. Paperwork will go to the sheriff on Monday for sign off and then wait on ATF all over again. Got a dealer working on a SilencerCo Sparrow for me but haven't heard when that will come in so no paperwork started on that onoe yet.

Man I hope ATF speeds up on this one.
