I just bought a machinegun from a dealer  (in Tennessee) and he E filed form 3 to my dealer (North Dakota) on 3/17/22 and it was approved 3/18/22.  He shipped the gun yesterday (3/21/22)  and it should be at my dealer 3/24/22.  I will E file form 4 when it gets here.

My local gun shop is small, but Class III.  He investigated eFile and said that you have to buy a "system" to make it work because the photos, prints etc. can't just be scanned but have to be sent in some sort of proprietary file format for eFile.  The latest cost of such a "system" is about $5,000 according to him.

He asked me to ask you which or what "system" your North Dakota guy is using to do your form 4 transfer - if you wouldn't mind sharing that.

Thanks,

Eric

I'll ask tomorrow.  They do a lot of silencers so they updated to the new equipment.

ATF received my Form 4 for a WW2 Thompson Aug 2nd. Called them yesterday and they said currently they've been taking 8 months.

Time to order more ammo.

NFA tracker shows that most Form 4 approvals are now taking almost a year or more.

We finally got the last transfer done today, efiled.  The dealer said his equipment was about $7,000.00.  He had to buy ATF approved equipment from a list and the printer needs to be FBI certified. We have 2 Thompsons on paper form 4 in state and now 2 form 4 e filed.  The dealer I got this Ruger from said he already had a couple 9 week form 4 approvals since the first of the year.

Just received notice in the past five days that three of my Form 4's had been approved.  Two were 11 months old, and the other was 8.5 months.  Interestingly, they were from two different dealers, but all three were approved by the same person on the same day.  So perhaps the ATF is starting to get organized.

 

Both dealers also said that their E-form 4's have been taking around 3 months from submission to approval.  So, assuming that they keep that system tuned and running, wait times may be much better in the future.

 

Forever hopeful....

Just had four paper form 4s approved to me on the same date from the same examiner. One was 8 months old, one was 6, one 5 and one 4 months old. It definitely appears like that are once again batching forms. I also have one e-form 4 thats just under two months old that was not included with the others.
