Is there a way to expedite the process via a FFL or SOT?

The $200 and fingerprints aren't scaring me but the year long wait will tax my patience.

Any suggestions?

Yes. Be patient.

Just kidding. It won't take a year unless you or the ATF drop the ball on the paperwork. My latest Class III transfer took 47 days from the time I mailed it until the time it got approved. I'm just the average Joe, not a dealer or anything, so I was surprised.

I am currently working on Patience ...

Last month I designed a custom rollmark and markings for a Receiver Tom Sawyer Mfg is making for me. It's been a month but he finally got most of the engraving done and hopefully sent it to the anodizer today. When he gets it back next week he will finish the roll mark engraving.

In the meantime he is sending in the paperwork to the BATF to register the lower as an SBR ... he said he couldn't do that until the SERIAL # (custom serial) was actually engraved. He said he should have the paperwork back in Mid-February from the BATF and then he can send it to the Class III dealer here in GA.

Once the dealer here has it he is going to do the transfer for me for $50 .... So I am looking at Mid-April to actually be able to assemble my SBR by the time my stamp comes back ...

Why all the wait and paperwork? Because since Tom Saywer is the manufacturer their original mark will be the only markings necessary on the SBR ... I will not need my name and address engraved on it ....

47 days isn't bad. However, if our government hadn't delved into socialist-Marxist utopianism in the 30's I wouldn't have to wait a day!!

hahaha......funny this should come up. I filed out the BATF form 1 last night and have it at work with me to make copies. It should go in the mail today or Tuesday. I have my NFA stuff set up in a LLC, I don't have to worry about the fingerprints and photos I am still waiting on my form 3 to clear from AAC (2.25 months ) for a Cyclone.

I will race ya on the SBR paperwork

So anyone in GA that will engrave them (CHEAP)?

+1 on the LLC route. My first Form1 SBR done on an LLC took 29 days to get approved from the time it went pending. My last Form1 SBR took exactly 3 days to get approved from the time it went pending. That one was 21 days from mail box to mail box. I am about to send in my third so I can put together an SBS for 3-Gun Matches. Let's see if they can approve it in 2 days??????

Took me a while to understand what you were talking about, but that's pretty wild. Who is the original mfr of the receiver? Tom Sawyer? Who's doing their millwork, finish and QC?

Tom Sawyer does the receiver from beginning to end. The rollmark has already been engraved and it should on it's way back from the anodizer soon ... He is going to send me pictures when it is completed. The he said it will take another 30 days to get it registered as an SBR before he sends it out to the CLASS III here in GA ....

So even though you are only getting the lower from Tom and doing the build yourself. Saywer registers it as a SBR, and you do a form 4?
