Yeah, read through that a bit. Does not have info, that I saw, on creating the file I need. Wonder if a high resolution scan of a completed fingerprint card would suffice. Apparently that is how the SilencerShop does it. They just send in a fingerprint card for the customer. At least according to their support staff.

You would need to develop software that converts a scanned FD-258 to that format. If you had some python skills it would not be all that hard. I do have those skills, I think its far easier just to drop them in the mail with the cover letter. From here the office in shootyourdogsburg WV is only a 3 day journey by priority USPS. I mailed mine nov 1 they arrived nov 4th.

Keep in mind you don't have to use EFT.

If the AFT does not know how their own system works, lmao, could be months before they figure it out. The old fashioned 2 copies of FD-258 + cover letter only takes 3-4 days.

UPDATE: I got in contact with the company PrintScan. Apparently they are working on being able to provide an ATF approved EFT fingerprint file. They think it may be available in 1-2 weeks. Trying to get specifics (i.e. can you send in a completed fingerprint card and get it converted). Worse case you cold probably just go to one of the UPS store locations and get an electronic finger pritning done and have that sent as an EFT file. Will update again once I get more information.

This may not be of any help now, but if you go through Silencer Shop, once you have uploaded fingerprints for a purchase via their kiosk, you can use them for multiple purchases. They are kept on file forever unless you request they delete them.

I have made a few calls to the places I get prints done. Not one person has any idea of what I am talking about.
ARDave- please keep us updated.

Latest Update: So, according to PrintScan.com company they will offer a service to either scan your fingerprints into an ATF approved EFT finger print file or you can send them a finger print card and they will convert it to an ATF approved EFT finger print file. Still a couple of weeks away from actually offering the service yet but, they say they will be offering it. Hope this helps.
