It says I can do this on the instructions page. [email protected] Does anyone do this?

Whom do I attention it to?   I'm honestly a little flabbergasted that this is even a thing.   Email?   Holy crap, we're gettin' high tech in this mofo.

Funny you bring this up. I'm somewhat dealing with this now. Moved from Florida to Ohio due to family matters (Good decision by the way!) and sent TWO 5320-20 forms in for a permanent move. In all the confusion of the move I didn't realize no copies were sent back approved. Called and got thru to "Terry" the "Legal Instruments Examiner" who had indeed signed off on mine and he immediately offered to scan them and email them to me. A little later ONE of them showed up in my email. Five calls, two voicemails left, and two emails later I still only have half of my forms. Sigh. So it can be done, just make sure you have everything in hand before you go.

TLDR- 5320-20's can be emailed but seems the folks up there are still eyeball deep in work and are hard to reach.

I've read you could, but I just mail them. Normal NFA wait time don't seem to apply, I usually get it back within 3 weeks.

How did you email it in?  Print out a hard copy, ink sign, and then scan into PDF format?

I got mine back quickly as well.  Started a thread here giving the ATF kudos for turning them around so fast and got hammered by the membership.  

Edit:  I sent in paper copy originals via snail mail.

Yep. Mine took just over a month to get back. They snail mail you the return.

I emailed mine in and got the response in the mail a few weeks after that.  Seems like the email to fax deal works fine.

That didn't save as much time as I would have hoped. I snail mailed one in in early December and it took about a month to get signed, then almost a week in the mail for the return...so 5 weeks.
