    Picked up my SBR this week from my SOT. It took about 8 weeks this time. Send the form on February 3; went into the system on the 10th; then approved April 6th.

    Last year, I did (2) form 4's and (1) form 1; which averaged 35 days.

    Now out to the range today for some fun with my South African R-series builds!

    Outstanding! It is great to hear about a relatively quick turnaround on a Form 4. I have 2 Form 4's recently submitted, check cashed 03/26/2012...patiently waiting, but not really confident of a quick turnaround. The last ones I sumbitted a few years ago took 3-4 months to be approved.

    Did you file send the forms in as an individual or trust?

    Individual. Haven't tried the trust route yet, but maybe shouldve with the amount of forms I have filed.

    ScorpioMK; It happened! plus my 3 other forms in 2011 averaged 35-40 days each.

    aslinged: In these builds; I collected standard Galil parts; then the different R4-5 parts (sight hoods, rear handguard retainers, bipod with larger feet, wood handguard, etc) from all over the country for the past 2 years; then had them built on US receivers; although had the R5 receiver left blanksided from the manufacter; to put a double lightning cut on it.

    Pinkhamr: Is that Korey from Silent Shooters?

    Korey was great to deal with; he sold me a pre-ban Galil almost 2 years ago. I called him a few times since.

    I really want to see the form 4, and know what the letter said that you attached to it and how much money was with that letter. Or is your examiner a friend?
