    I mailed off my Form 1 to make and register a SBR to the BATFE today. I did it as an individual so I had to send the fingerprint cards (2), citizenship forms (2), Form 1s with CLEO sign-off (2) with pictures (2) attached, and a $200 check.

    So the clock begins December 1st.

    Let's see how long it takes.

    Yes. I did get the sign-off from the CLEO and sent it in. The sign-off has to be on both Form 1s (or both Form 4s if that's what you are doing).

    I don't think it matters but just in case it makes things go faster I already have a registered MG and I have a valid C&R FFL (they do ask for any FFL information on the forms).

    I have 7 NFA items....there was no rhyme or reason to the wait time.....shortest was 40 days or so, back in the pre 2008 "good old days"...longest was about 2.5 months.....

    I have done 7 NFA transfers......do you want some advice????
    Forget it.
    Don't count the days, don't think about it. Stockpile subsonic ammo, or whatever else you are gonna need.
    Don't look in the mailbox every day.....

    You will get it when you get it.

    My form1 took over 4 months to come back to me. I thought it got lost in mail or something....until I called and find out it was still in pending status.

    Take a deep breath, and try to relax....

    The form 1 came in the mail today (02/14/2011), approved!

    76 days from mailbox to mailbox...pretty good, faster than DeKalb can get a GWL done.

    It was approved on February 7th but I didn't get the form until today.

    :mrgreen:

    Let's see some before and after pics.

    First the BEFORE ones.... before somebody puts the hacksaw to use or gets that shorty barrel shipped via UPS.
