NFA Paperwork Timing

I was surprised with mine too. So surprised in fact that I didn't have any parts on hand to complete my build and wound up waiting close to 9 months before I got around to it anyway.
The law? The law is a human institution...

Really annoyed at the ATF right now.

I submitted an eform back in April, and had nothing but problems getting it to submit. Ever time I tried, it failed and I had to start back at the beginning again. I got really frustrated filling out the same form over and over again, so I started rushing. Finally it worked and went through, but of course there was a mistake in my trust name since I was rushing.

I called the ATF and left a voicemail, I tried contacting them through the "ask the expert" link and I tried emailing. No response.

Turns out, my form was eventually rejected and I got no email telling me that it was rejected, or why. I just happened to log in today and saw that it was disapproved, but didn't see any notification as to why. So I assumed it was because of the typo in my trust name.

So I followed this advice:

And submitted another form with the corrected typo. Paid another $200 so now I'm in it for $400 total. Sent the email to Ted and waiting for a response.

...but here's the kicker. I did some more research and found out you can download the rejected form and see why it was rejected. I did that, and found out it was NOT because of the typo in the trust name, but it's a problem with the model number. And my new form was submitted with the same model number! So now I have to decide if I should submit a THIRD form and be in it for $600! This is getting to be expensive!

ETA: No email back from Ted, but second form was disapproved. Just sent a third form. $600 into it now.

Form was approved by Ted on 7/15/15!

Ouch!

This is one of those deals where they probably caught the first mistake and just rejected it without reviewing the rest of it. So next time they'd run into your next mistake and reject it...and so on. All for the almighty dollar. One thing I know for sure is the ATF does not have your best interests in mind when doing anything.

Update on timelines due to 41P;

It is now taking 8-9 weeks just for a Form 3 to be approved (this is the tax free transfer form a distributor to a dealer).

I talked to the NFA Branch recently to check on a form and they told me they have been swamped with forms due to the proposed reg change. Now, for Form 4s it is taking 8 weeks just to get them loaded into the computer system and approval time is 5-6 months from the day it was received by the NFA Branch. They don't see it getting better for a while.

The person I talked to did not give me any timelines for a Form 1. A customer of mine has one it the system (Trust) that I did submittal for him a month ago so I'm going to call this week and see what they say.

I'll report my findings when I can.
