Form 4 approved from BATFE shipped to your house or to the dealer?

    I have 3 cans on the way back to me. I am getting confused more ever, i submitted form 4, I did the paper work and mailed them in with my checks. The question is that if Form 4 approved, would they send it to my home address or send to the dealers.


    Thanks, Benny

    It will be shipped to the dealer and they will call you when they receive your form 4.

    Clarification, Always goes to the seller.

    A private party can transfer an NFA item to a resident of the same state in which case the paperwork will come to you as the seller.

    Is that true, or does a class III dealer have to be the one that does an NFA transfer?

    If it's from out of state it will need a dealer, in state can be person to person.

    No dealer needed for an in state transfer.

    I did it this year as a buyer. Met the seller at a Mc Donalds, looked over the goods, signed the form 4's and I gave him a $5K check. He took the item back home and locked it up in his safe until he gets the stamped forms back from the ATF. Then he can physically transfer the toys to me, probably some time next year.

    I've always wondered how that worked, that's a lot of trust you have in that seller!

    Well in that situation, the seller signs the form 4 and the buyer sends it in with prints & photos. At that point the seller is committed. Once the paperwork is processed the seller cannot screw you without being in violation of some very serious laws.
