After about 6 years of learning the AR ropes from you all here and after a collection of rifles that started with a simple M&P15T that has evolved now into multiple Noveske's, I've finally gotten the means to jump into Class III exclusivity! I submitted my trust tonight and will send in my forms for an SBR stamp early next week. I also will be ordering my first suppressor, as soon as the one I want is back in stock.

Thanks to whole ar15.com community for giving me all the insight and great reading over the last 6 years. I didn't even know the difference between "commercial" and "mil-spec" back then and I've always turned to this site for info and guidance and have never been disappointed. Even though I know a wise-ass GD comment in this thread is inevitable, I look forward to the laughs. Thanks again, gents!

Congrats! What are you expecting for a wait time?

The last paper forms we had come in a couple of weeks ago were right at 10 months.

That blows. I guess the E Forms thingy is still down. I've read it shaved months off the wait time when it was functional.

The last eform was right at 5 months.

I remember back in ancient times during the late 90's when it took 6 weeks for the paperwork on some machine guns I bought to go through and I thought that was an eternity.

It's getting faster. We had some paper forms earlier in the year that took 12 months.

If you're going to dive into the club, please learn to discuss it using the proper terms, so as to be able to properly educate others, dispel the gunshop commando urban legends / wive's tales, and bring them into the fold. Unless you have a Type 01 (or 2) Federal Firearms License, you are not getting into the Class III Club. Based on what you're getting, you are joining the NFA Title II Club.

I know, it sounds nitpicky. But, a lot of the reason Title II firearms have so much mystique and confusion is because people have been told stuff for years by people who were giving them information that was based on half-truths, at best. This is how we got the stories about having to pay $500 per year for a machine gun license, or that you surrendered your 4th Amendment protections and ATF could enter your home at will.

Type refers to a Federal Firearms License. Class refers to a Special Occupancy Taxpayer status for licensees who wish to engage in the importing (Class 1), manufacturing (Class 2), or dealing (Class 3) of NFA Title II firearms. Title I refers to shotguns, rifles, handguns, and 'firearms'. Title II refers to machine guns, silencers (aka suppressors), short-barrel rifles, short-barrel shotguns, destructive devices (both explosive and large bore), and Any Other Weapons (AOW's).

Enough nitpicking. Welcome to the club. It's an addiction. I now have more Title II firearms than Title I (7 cans, 3 SBR's, 3 SBS', and 2 AOW's, vs. 3 rifles and 5 handguns).
