Is there a national FFL dealer website? I've got his stats and he gave me a reference in my state but I have not been able track the local dealer down. Gooogle isnt helping me much here. Also searched the references on gunbroker.com and others.
Any way to find a dealer by name?

There is an ATF website used to verify the status of a FFL licensee.
If you go to : http://188.8.131.52/FFLeZCheck and fill in the information that is needed, this site can verify the current status of the FFL dealer you are looking at.
I hope this helps!

Go to the recommended dealers listing. If he's there, you're probably OK. Else, put a quick post on the Board of Inquiry on Subguns. You'll get feedback fairly soon. Obviously it's all face value. I'd find someone to talk to before mailing a check. I've been very lucky. Other's have not. Hope this helps and good luck on the new gun!

Start with the following list of recommended dealers:
If nothing is found then ask on the board of inquires:
If you still can't find anything and don't yet feel comfortable then ask what other Class III dealers he has dealt with. If he has been in the business for a while, you would be surprised as too how many people know each other and how much feedback you can obtain.

| Class 3 to class 3 is taking about 4 weeks|
My examiner takes about 3 to 4 weeks like you mention (really have enjoyed working with her) but some examiners take ALOT longer. A recent F3 from another dealer to my shop took 5 months (yes, MONTH'S) to get approved. AND THERE WASN'T EVEN ANY PROBLEMS WITH THE FORMS! Frustrating to say the least. There are horror stories out there that are even worse regarding dealer to dealer transfers.
The bottom line is, it all depends who the examiner is regarding how long an F3 needs to clear. I'll refrain from further comment.
