I purchased a can in December. It took about a month to get my paperwork in order. In that time frame, the dealer had closed his shop, and moved into a new shop that he was opening under another name (partnership). Originally he had the FFL in his name. He assured me that the transfer could continue and the silencer would be kept at the new shop. In early January, I got all of my stuff together and brought it in. He checked it over and gave it to an employee to mail to the ATF. I stopped by the shop last week only to be told that he was no longer affiliated with them, and that the silencers 'went with him' as they were not going to be a Class III dealer. The gave me his personal phone number. I've talked to him once. He told me to call back this week. I've not been able to get him or a returned call this week. The NFA branch of the ATF doesn't have my paperwork yet, though they say that's probably normal, and I haven't gotten info back from the USPS to see if the money order was cashed. So all in all, I really don't know what the situation is. He apparently does not have a FFL or business anymore. Will the ATF still process the Form 4? Does he even have to have a FFL to finish the transfer? Anyone gone through something like this before? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
