Is there a way to get Silencer Shop to give you your fingerprints electronically? I've emailed them a couple of times and no results. I know I can order them as cards no problem.
But I'm hoping if I get them electronically I can use them on an Efile F1 and not have to run to the post office etc. etc. would that be true?

No, they won’t do that. You can buy paper cards with your prints on them from SS, but they won’t give or sell you the digital file. Likely this is to keep you going through them for your purchases, because if they every gave you the file, there would be little reason to use SS anymore.

I'm ok with that philosophy but then why don't they offer an eform1 service. I wouldn't care if was for a fee. makes no sense.

They tried offering it when eForm 1 came out a few years ago, but got badly burned on it. The ATF position was that the maker needs to have their own individual account and be the one who actually fills out the eForm 1. SS submitted a bunch of eForm 1s using their own ATF account. A bunch of SS generated eForm 1s were stuck for months, until SS and the ATF worked out a one-time deal to get the forms unstuck that they didn’t allow to be used again.

Basically, SS can’t submit a eForm 1 for someone else. They have to have their own eForm account do it themselves. Note that SS isn’t submitting eForm 4s either. It’s the dealer submitting the eForm through their own account.

I recently came across this option for getting your cards converted to an eft file. No experience yet, but it seems to solve the problem.

Because YOU have to complete a Form 1 since YOU are the one making the gun.

I get that completely. I just want a fingerprint file to attach. But I'll just continue to mail them and be happy.
