Form 4 question on address of transferor (block 3e)


3 posts in this topic

I am buying an NFA item from a person in my state, so  no need to go through an SOT/FFL.  We are going from Trust to Trust on a Form 4.  He has a different address on his trust, that the address where he lives. He now resides in a new address ( in the same state) and has annotated that in block 3e of the form 4.  So here is my question. 

Will this cause an issue with the Transfer?  I remember I had a 5320.20 rejected as my form 4 had my old address for the item.  The examiner actually called me and asked my to file a 5320.20 for a permanent move ( across town), so they could update their database, and subsequently approved the form.  

Will the ATF mail the approved form back the to address on Block 3a or 3e?

For same-state moves, updating the address was supposed to be a courtesy to the ATF, not a requirement.

I'd probably call NFA Branch and ask. I wouldn't think it would be a problem, but the ATF is infamous for making shit more difficult than it needs to be.

In Liberty,

Shouldn't be necessary but if you're worried about it you can just ask the seller to fill out a 5320.20 marked permanent and send it in.  The .20 will get processed a heck of a lot quicker than the F4.
