Hey Everyone,
I know most people care about the wait times on Form 1s and 4s, but I thought I would share my recent Form 5 information.

I am sending a HK rifle out for some work and I submitted a Form 5 because I was shipping it out of state to a gunsmith. It took exactly 45 days from the day I snail mailed my paper Form 5s to the day I got it back approved.

I thought I would share in case anyone cared about the processing times on such forms.

My experience has been that Form 5 turnaround times are just all over the board. And I cannot really put my finger on a why. One SOT got it done in 12 days, you 45 and I know of another that has been waiting 60+ days.
