I'm not positive but, I believe it was part of the Gun Control Act of 1968.

Both were mandated by the Gun Control Act of 1968 enacted on October 22 ,1968.
I don't know if the form 4473 was on that date or not. The 4473 has been modified two times in my lifetime.

The BATF was a result of the 1968 Gun Law pushed thru by LBJ:(

Actually BATF traces its roots way back there in history. Treasury established the IRS back in 1862.
In 1920 the Volstead Act was passed (prohibition) and the Prohibition Unit was established.
In 1930, the Bureau of Industrial Alcohol was created.
In 1933, the Alcohol Tax Unit was established.
In 1952, the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division was established.
In 1968, GCA68 was passed by Congress and the ATF was organized out of the ATTD.
In 2003, ATF was moved from Treasury to Justice and renamed BATFE.

The 4473 was an outgrowth of GCA68.

Question has been answered and the thread is starting to turn into a rant fest.
