About an hour for me but it sounds like excellent service.


Hot Spot Engraving is 100% good to go. I left my lower with him overnight.  He does a great job.

I just submitted my first form 1 using efile and have a couple of questions for those that have done it.

1. How soon after you submit do you get a response email with the cover sheet for your fingerprints and where you’re supposed to send them?

2. I didn’t fill out my FD-258 exactly as indicated. For my height I mistakenly put 6’1” instead of 601. Does anyone know if it will be an issue or should I try to correct it somehow?

3. Any idea in current wait times?

Thanks!

Sorry I'm just seeing this now, but I live in Frankfort and have done this twice.  Once with the last guy (Kaupas?) and once with this one.  No issues either time.

NFA stuff has never really interested me personally since I am not rich, a hunter, or an operator.  All joking aside nothing covered by the NFA really seemed like it was worth the time, effort or hassle to try to own, ESPECIALLY in IL.   That said, now that there is a PCC division in USPSA, and they allow legal SBRs - but not shouldered SBR shaped "pistols", I can now justify the effort.    If anyone in Central IL wants to PM me and point me in the right direction, that would be awesome

I found this thread on Reddit with a pretty good guide for us Illinoisans.

I have a couple AR-15 SBRs following this process. Is it true that an AK, Scar, MP5 etc could not be SBRed in IL because the "stock device" does not need to be in place to fire the device? IE an AR15 has to have the buffer tube to be a functioning rifle. Am I making any sense here? lol

I have an AK SBR.  It started as a pistol, I filed the form 4, then had a folding stock installed

Looks like it just needs to be a minimum OAL of 26” and appears people are doing it in the non-folded position. If so, a SLR-104UR is around 28.75” so should be good to go.

How exactly  is The OAL of 26" measured?

With a tape measure?

Don't take it as gospel, but I seem to remember it being with the stock collapsed and the end of the muzzle if not pinned or the end of the muzzle device if pinned.

On a rifle the stock is extended. Article

Has anyone went from SBR back to pistol or know what process or forms to file with the ATF?

I have to renew by C&F FFL and also submit a Form 1. As required by the ATF, a copy has to be sent to the CLEO. I remember sending it 3 years back to my town police chief and they simply returned it back after a few weeks.

I've read here that it is best to send it to the ISP chief? I looked up and could only find the address for the 'Office of Director'. Can someone confirm the address and if this is where you should send the copies of C&R renewals & Form 1 applications please?

Reviving an old post but thinking of doing a Form 1 on my SP5 as well. Any SBR a MP5 or clones in here? If so, any special requirements regarding OAL?

It has to he atleast 26 inches I believe. The full size mp5 should meet that requirement.

@bob9181

IANAL ... the regs state local Chief of Police  - if they return it that is their choice, not yours.

For bonus points, send it to them via Certified Mail  :D
