Can anyone point me towards a good tutorial on filing a Form 1? Do you guys recommend filing as an individual or as a Trust and if Trust did you create it yourself or hire a lawyer?
TIA

I think whether or not you want to use a trust comes down to who all lives in your house with access to your NFA guns and who you'd like to share them with. If you're a hermit with no friends and no family, then a trust may not be worth it. If you have a wife with access to your gun safe or some friends you share guns with, then maybe a trust makes sense.

You can make your own trust with a bit of research online and a couple hours. Or you aren't sure about that sort of stuff or too busy, pay $100 from any number of online lawyers and you pretty much get the trust emailed instantly. You just need to sign and have it notarized.

You're gonna have a long wait.
The only paper copies you will receive are the ones you print off of the emailed ones from ATF.

It comes regular mail. Yes, some do get lost in transit.

Form 1 submitted on 7-20-16. Received back 5-26-17 (with a correction needed Grrrr..) Woulda been 10 months and 6 days, now will probably be more like a year and 6 days because of my unobservantness.

Here's to hoping parts of the NFA get repealed or Trump staffs up the office with more document checkers...

Paper for me. You can't E-file in IL. This state doesn't allow trusts to own guns.

Just called and they said they are currently on "mid July 2016". I paper filed on July 22, 2016 so who knows how long a few days takes.

National Firearms Act (NFA) (voice): (304) 616-4500

Damn, I feel for you guys. I paper filed a Form 1 Individual in July, BATFE received it on July 12th. Mine got approved on April 25th, and it came in the mail on May 12th. It's crazy, it sounds like we filed right around the same time, yet mine was approved 6 weeks ago. I guess the only thing to say is this is the government we're talking about here, I suppose it's not THAT crazy they're doing things that make no sense whatsoever.

Just sent it the Form 1 today for the AK104 build using Childers Guns Khyber Pass receiver. I'm hoping 8 months but I'm not going to hold my breath on it.

Think good thoughts. I've had a Form 1 come back in 30 days. It's not likely now, but you never know.

I got another eForm 1 back today for my HK SP5K. I submitted it 7/11/2016, so that makes 342 days. One more pre-41f form 1 to go (also filed 7/11/2016).

Hoping once the log jam of the 11th hour 41F submissions are gone that the approval times comes back to a "normal" of 4-6 months (what a sad normal ) However im sure it takes longer now with all the other ridiculous crap introduced

Default different dates

An FYI incase anyone hasn't noticed. There are two dates on all of my E-filed Form 1 submissions. The date they accepted payment and the date the forms' status changed to in process. Two E-filed Form 1s on July 7, 2016 - one went in process on July 22 and the other on August 11. I just received the July 22 form as approved yesterday June 25. I don't expect the other to be approved until at least July.
