I submitted one in mid-December for an SBR and haven't heard anything. Torrey at Capitol Armory said that the last Form 1 took 11 business days, but to not count on that. With Christmas, New Years, and the shutdown no telling when it'll come back.

I assume all examiners for form 4’s are also not working?

Yeah, some people on Form 1 forum got a canned response back that said only a few people are working and they’re only dealing with life or death ATF stuff, not our form 1s and 4s.

Good afternoon,

You have reached the ATF NFA Division. Due to the current lapse in government appropriations, the NFA branch offices will be closed and only handling certain “excepted” functions directly related to safety of human life or the protection of property. General inquiries will NOT be handled so please resubmit your inquiry when the government re-opens.

David L. Howell
Branch Chief
Government Support Branch
National Firearms Act Division
244 Needy Road
Martinsburg WV 25405
It’s stupid that they regulate things that aren’t related to the “safety of human life”

Ended up have to resubmit. I didn’t realize that I could not get the Eform email attachments on my iPhone. They sent the fingerprint attachment, but I couldn’t see or open it with my iPhone, so they refunded my money, and after I realized this, had to do it all over again. I resubmitted last week, and sent in my fingerprints on Monday. Hopefully, I get some info back soon.

Got a Titanium tube from Rusty. Gotta get it engraved now. Then will probably get back with Rusty to help with baffles. Going 30 cal. Bought a 6.5 Cm with a brake awhile back. The brake rattled my brain. Decided to build a can for it.

I submitted 2 Form 1’s and mailed the fingerprint cards today. Hopefully they’ll go as quickly as yours.
