I have a chance to buy four guns including 2 Thompsons from an individual in Texas.
How soon can the dealer get a transfer to him from an Individual. I also need a dealer that I can trust to then transfer to a dealer in my state.
Any help would be appreciated.

Don't make it too complicated. If any of those are C&R elgible and you have a C&R License, he can transfer them directly to you on a Form 4. No license, then he can transfer all to a dealer in your state on a Form 4. Absolutely no reason for him to add another step(s) to a process that's too long already. His transferring to a local dealer is a total waste of time. FYI

Also, individual to dealer transfers usually take less than 4 weeks.

As long as you have a C&R license thats correct. (Sorry, I meant to say that you can have that individual transfer the C&R weapons directly to you instead of a dealer)

Back up. An individual can transfer NFA on the C&R List to a C&R Licensee in any state. An individual can transfer any NFA to any Class 3 dealer in any state as well.

I recently had an MP5 transfered from an individual to a dealer here in Ohio and then to me. No need for a second dealer. All transfers were on form 4's and required 2 taxes. The seller agreed to pay for the first so it worked out well for me. If C&R weapons are involved and you have a lic. they can be transfered directly to you. I agree with Jay, no need to add any steps whether C&R or not.

Good luck
