They add a $5 service fee for e-filing. I then emailed Silencer Shop a scan of my Trust. The whole process took less than 5 minutes. They'll e-file the docs with the BATF today. How much easier could it be?


Could be alot easier without the NFA

Not having to do it to begin with would be a hell of a lot easier.

Going the Trust route also allows you to e-file, which gives you a "pending" status that day. If you mail in your application, it is running about 8-9 weeks for them to enter your Form into the system to get to pending status. So it appears e-filing saves you 8-9 weeks of wait.


I bought a spectre II on Friday, emailed my trust on Monday and away it went. I called Monday afternoon and spoke with Rich and he told me that they can only e-file form 3s, like you I was under the impression that form 4s with trusts were e-filed as well. I pressed him to be sure and he said that they would print and mail the forms and trust...


This is not true, my store has e-filed a number of Form 4s.

You also go "pending" the day you e-file. That takes 8 or 9 weeks off the wait.

Bottom-line: I made a phone call and completed the purchase and paperwork process in less than 5 minutes. No driving to the physical location of the suppressor dealer, no waiting for paperwork in the mail from the dealer, and no running to the post office to return the paperwork.


I have my doubts as to whether it really is going to take time off of the whole process. I think it just goes pending because there is no queue of envelopes to be opened, checks cashed, etc. We will see in a year or so.
