Yep. I confirmed that with one of the nicer ladies on the hotline. Exact same background check. If a peep comes up, in other words, anything but an instant pass, your paperwork gets sent to the FBI to have an actual person perform a background check. They sign off on it, then it goes back to the NFA to approve, issue stamp, and mail it. Currently, something is going on within the FBI that has their portion of the manual background check taking an additional unknown amount of time to perform. Me thinks, the FBI has gone rogue!
