    Anyone do an e-form 1 individual lately? Just submitted one last week and wondering how long its been taking.
    My girlfriend submitted an eform 1 individual just about 3 months ago, still waiting.

    Looking for another suppressor, Rugged Obsidian 9. Is there a specific way to do this. would like to transfer through my lgs in Edgewater. I have a trust. He has one in the safe for 6 mo. now so I'm guessing thats the norm but MDS has kept me from making mistakes in the past so I'm just throwing this out there. Bought an Xbox to help pass the time. Thanks

    Ask your LGS if they can do a eForm 4. If they can, go to the eForms website, create a account, etc....

    :omg: :mad54: That is Fvcking ridiculous. So much for their hi tech fix.
    Really won't know until they are all caught up on paper forms. Those that did get theirs in 90 days at the beginning of the year were the lucky ones since the ATF was testing the system out. Right now with the backlogs of paper and e-forms the true efficiency won't be known until there are no more paper forms.

    I think 12 to 18 months before we really know.

    Probably right, any paper form 4s submitted after the E-forms will still have a 1+ year wait most likely, unless that person has done a few since then that person might get batched.

    Maybe the 87,000 new IRS agents could go over to the AFT for a few weeks ?? :lol2:
