    My form 1 on the atf e-file site was approved 4/21/15. But I have yet to see a tax stamp or paperwork in the mail. How long did you guys wait til you saw the stamp and or paperwork?

    You won't get one in the mail. Digital copy only.
    Print it, save it.

    If you e-filed a form 1 you will just get an email with your approved form for you to print. You will never get a paper copy

    Hmm that is weird, maybe it's not approved? Cause I never received an email saying it was approved, but when I log into the e site it's listed under approved. Maybe I should give them a call.

    Look in your junk or spam folder of email
    When you applied did you get a conformation email?

    The approved form is in a PDF. On the right side of the screen is the button for the form.

    Set your printer to high resolution colors and it kinda looks like a real tax stamp.

    That sure seems like a lot better option than having the physical original and the risk of it getting lost or destroyed.

    I have my form 4's all scanned and backed up. Also have color copies and the originals are safe in the safe.

    I want that physical stamp.

    A real stamp almost makes it seem like it's worth the $200.00 you coughed up for it.

    Ive had several guns and silencers Ive gotten bored with over the years and sold. The stamp could always be counted on to bring $50 on ebay. As much as I like the efile form 1 thing I don't like the way it screws me out of $50.
