Got the email from ATF late this afternoon on my Form 1 SBR.

DISAPPROVED!!!

Had to wait until after 6pm for the ATF website to be back up after weekly Wednesday maintenance.

I could kick myself twice. I had the AR15 doc open when I filled everything out so I didn't make any mistakes.
1. Had my name as applicant, instead of trust name - seemed to make sense at the time because you attach the trust document.
2. I left off the 3 leading alpha-numeric characters of serial number - just filled in the numbers. Should have put on my reading glasses when I copied the serial number off my lower.

I feel like a moron. Oh well, I'll wait for the refund and resubmit. I assume my clock will start at 0. Maybe my dumbarse mistakes will keep somebody else from screwing it up.

Submitted June 2
Pending June 6
Disapproved Sept 30
120 days

What he said. I realized my error and proactively emailed Ted about it at about 60 days. He disapproved it, I refiled, and he approved it in a couple days after that, on a Sunday morning. Took about 90 days for the refund to hit my CC.

I have a question... I went through a dealer who screwed up the paper work 11 months ago. Long story short I just found out and resubmitted with who i should have gone with first. My question is how are you guys getting calls and emails from them, the first go around it was near impossible for me to get them to even find my forms because they would ask for serial number and that what the Dumb A dealer forgot to put on the forms.

I would say my name the trusts name and the dealers name and they, after 3 months, finally found me in the system and said there was an error due o no serial number.

Are you guys giving them your email and phone #s on the forms?

thanks if you can call me to explain best way please PM and I will send you my phone #

You call on a paper form 1 or 4. Give them the info they request and they give you the info they can... Or can find.

On an efiled form 1 you get an email when it is approved/disapproved.

I've been pretty busy since my Form1 blunder, between work and bow season opening. I finally got around to refiling my SBR on Monday 10/19, and sending the email to Ted Clutter.

Had an email waiting for me this morning, Form 1 APPROVED!!

Huge thanks to CoachW and bearintex for the advice!!!

The back-and-forth over shouldering the Sig brace caused a rush in submissions, which has certainly contributed to the increased wait times.

Take a look at this trend graph. November 2014 was when the ATF issued its letter to Black Aces Tactical, writing " . . . should an individual utilize the SigTac SB15 pistol stabilizing brace on the submitted sample as a shoulder stock to fire the weapon from the shoulder, this firearm would then be classified as a ‘short-barreled shotgun'."

I bought a couple from SD Tactical Arms. They are the titanium can with freeze plugs. All I did was drill out the freeze plugs and it works great. I can't tell the difference between the real thang than mine. My .308 sounds like a .22!!! Not bad for a 100.00 bucks and looks great!

Yes. Google your problem. There's an ATF guy you can email and he will help you. I don't remember his name or info; otherwise I'd give it to you.
