E-File Form 3 Approval Times

Location:

14 posts in this topic

Been a while since I did an E-file form 3, they used to be approved in 24-28 hours.

What time frame have other SOT's been experiencing ?

Thanks

"Used to" is correct, Now it takes about a week.

I called to check on the one, and the lady said don't call unless its been 10 business days.

I will say that when I was on active duty, Tricare was great, once you figured out the "system".

I was being facetious.  They may take good care of military (wasn't the case when I was in), but I don't have any faith in the feds to do anything quickly,  efficiently or courteously after dealing with NFA Branch for 36 years.

And Form 4's are taking 9 to 14 months or longer. Inexcusable. A dealer friend has been waiting 6 months to get a Form 4 firearm from an individual to his license (it hasn't even been assigned an examiner yet). They delayed a transfer I did to a corporation saying they were waiting on prints (corporations don't have or need prints). I am glad E Form 3's are only taking a week or less (should be instantaneous, but......).

The shortest we've experienced around 3-4 weeks or less via e-file as of a couple months ago. Haven't had a chance to take an average sampling from our latest paperwork batch though; it could be a little less.

True corps don't, but every responsible person listed does.    Just got one back the other day.....9 months. Might be the longest one I've ever had in 20+yrs of continuous transfers?

It could be worse, you could be a hostage at an airport waiting on the state dept. to negotiate your release knowing most state dept. management couldn't process a form 4.

This was 20 years ago on the fingerprints. When trusts and such didn't need them. 

If I were a hostage depending on any branch of the gummit, I would sooner take my chances on my own.
