Well that situation was not expected or useful with all the joyful noise that surrounded the roll out of the Efile forms. So i am stuck with a paper transfer with seller being 84 and in poor health and me being 72.
Originally posted by hrcjon: I would certainly ask a SOT if he can facilitate the transfer and use efile. But of course nobody really knows how fast efiles are going to take.
The gun would have to be transferred to the SOT and in his inventory before it can be transferred from him to you. The SOT can’t just fill out the paperwork for a transfer from the other guy direct to you.
As far as knowing how long eFile actually takes, some people have already gotten approved eForm 4s back, a few in less than 60 days, but most seem closer to 80-90 days (late Dec to mid-Jan submissions). I’m on Day 81, so hopefully soon.

Interested in this process as well. I've been entertaining the idea of selling a suppressor while a coworker wants to transfer a destructive device. While we both work at a gun shop, we'd both rather do individual to individual transfers and eforms has been less than helpful.
