Son-in-law found himself a sweet 10" Colt police trade-in for $786 today, it would be nice to slip him the cash for a Christmas gift and I was wondering how long the ATF is taking these days.  If it's too long I'll try some other gift. Anyone  willing to guess?

Eforms are taking about 90 days on a trust.

Eta link
90 day eform

E file can be 5-6 months. Traditional snail mail could be well over a year at the moment. EO 41p made a bad situation worse.

87 days.

I thought this was the exception and that generally we should be expecting 5-6 months?

NFA Branch is quoting 4 months on eFiled Form 1 and Form 4's. There are plenty of people posting that their eFiled  Form 1 and Form 4's are getting approved in about 90 days.

From what I can tell, the exception was the 10 turn around a few people saw during the initial rollout. From the 25 page thread I posted above, it seems like most folks are getting their efile returned in about 3 months. Of course this could change, but it seems this is the current trend.

I sent in a Form 1 in February and haven't heard from them yet.
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 5:51:50 PM EDT
I'm still waiting on a can I bought in Feb using snail mail.

Is this Efile new? It's been years since I did a Form 1 or Form 4
Link Posted: 12/11/2013 5:57:35 PM EDT
April here, paper.


I can tell you with almost certainty that the 90 day forms are the beta cases run as a pilot program. When starting a new system, the .gov process is to take a few examiners and have them beta several cases to work out he kinks before full rollout.

That's why I'm dumbfounded that the Obamacare website beta'ed for 2 weeks. I work for SSA and we beta'ed the paperless case processing for 2 full years.

I thought they were just testing the system and all efiles now go to the back of the line just like paper folks.

So it would almost be worthwhile to start a trust at this point….

Has anyone ever used those online trust websites?

Yup, I used 199trust.com and had it reviewed by the trust/estate attorney I work for.  He made some very minor changes, but other than that he said it was good to go.

I don't remember exactly, but I think it was just a matter of wording something a little bit differently.  It sounded like it was more of a personal preference than anything.  The trust would have been fine without it.  I can ask him or his secretary next week when I start working there again.

Edit:  I should also add that he was quite impressed with the trust as a whole.  He's been doing trust and estate work for a very long time, so I believe him when he says it's good.

Yes, I have my NFA trust through 199trust.com, and I already have 1 can in hand, and 3 more pending that were all done on my trust.  My local NFA dealer read my paperwork carefully (they had not seen 199trust before), and said it looked quite kosher.
