NEED URGENT HELP:
I filed last week.
Moments later I got an email from the ATF stating: "This is to advise you that the status of your eForms submission with the subject Permit/Control number has changed to PENDING RESEARCH"
I also received an attachment in the email with the DRAFT of the form.
Is that "The Cover Letter" that gets sent with the prints?
If so, I need to overnight this tomorrow!
I singed onto ATF website. My form says "created" with the date but has no date for SUBMITTED.
Should I expect another email with a cover letter to send along with prints to the ATF?
Do I also need to include another photo?
I did some more research...Give your dog away, sell your guns, you gon get raided.
I did some more research...
I read that it takes a week or so to get the cover letter...
The email will say submitted and then I mail in the prints...
Last time I used a Trust so I am not familiar with individual filings.
approved eform 1 short barreled rifle for brand new AR15 lower in mass, submitted June 20th 2020 approved July 19 2020. I had heard the BATFE does not recognize Maura's opinion as law, but now I can confirm it is true.
this isnt as much proof that BATFE does not recognize mauras opinion as law, but rather that they do not enforce state regulations at a federal level
Just got my approval stamp from the ATF. That seems really fast.
Submitted electronically 6/26/2020
Prints Mailed 6/30/2020
I guess I will SBR my pre-94 Bushmaster next just to give me my flexibility and remove my pinned brake.
@SteelPlateAssassin - Did yours come in?
I had a Will drawn up recently and asked the Attorney about my NFA Trust.Just thinking this through. My wife and I both have wills and trusts, plus a family trust. Convoluted but seemingly the best way to avoid probate and some taxes.
Anyway... does the creation of an NFA trust need to recognize our existing personal and family trusts? Or do our existing trusts need to be modified to recognize the NFA trusts?
The major reason I'd go NFA trust is so I could give my son access to any NFA items we might acquire.
Doh, what was wrong on the entry but good to see them get processed in the same time frame.I was disapproved today, you won the race. I accidentally entered my model wrong on the form 1 and got an email from an ATF examiner asking for photos of my AR. She was nice enough to transfer my fingerprints to my new form 1.
Just got approved. July 24th application, approved August 11th. I bought the lower brand new the day before I applied. The lower I submitted has only been on the market since may. It is a new product in case anybody is wondering if ATF cares about lower manufacture and purchase dates from MA.
