I don't know if ATF has a sense of humor, or I'm the luckiest guy on the planet, but I received my approved form 1 stamp on my Birthday three months and a few weeks after they received it.beer.gif   I need to call and see the status on the form 4 that went out in the same package but it can't be far behind.  ATF actually signed off on it almost three weeks prior to me receiving it...

CONGRATS!  Personally, I've never had to process any of those forms (my collection are all plain-jane).... but your experience sounds very encouraging.

Gary, from the cards that you've show, YOUR COLLECTION IS FAR FROM PLAIN JANE. Called ATF today and the form 4 also cleared on the 3rd, so Friday I'm betting on being able to free my can from NFA jail. If your state permits it and you have a CLEO like mine, the process for a form 1 or 4 is very simple. I'm betting there's a HK clone just dying inside to be releasedwink.png

Oddly enough, the form 4 was posted marked the day of my birthday and my S/N contains my birth year.

Gary's state won't let him do a form 1. However he can have a class II SOT in state or out of state do it.

I thought the WA problem with SBRs had been fixed recently by the legislature?

We have SBRs, just not individual form 1 ability until 6/9/16. Almost amusing considering the absurd level of panic about the trust changes at the federal level which kick on 7/14/16. They suck, but things are far from over.

They may.  Years ago I had a Form 1 on a Saiga 12 SBS that I decided I was going to instead sell, (still have that S12 NIB by the way!) and NOT SBS and I wrote the BATFE (again, it seems) and they informed me in just 3 weeks that since I had not whacked the barrel yet I could ask to have the S12 SBS removed from the NFA rolls.  So I did.  Mailed back the original Form 1 tax stamp with the request.  Even got my $200 bucks back!  I was asked to destroy any Form 1 tax stamp copies.  I did.  There was a handwritten note stating that if the barrel had already been cut back just keep cutting on it until it is then legally long enough.  Complete with a happy face.  Yep.

They seem like nice enough people even though they owe me money.

I'm expecting treasury check any day now... for months

They do approve my stuff quickly but refunds are a different story.
