Hello, I'm new here. Last year I put my Bushmaster ACR on a form 2 w a 12.5" barrel. I then realized I could purchase a 10.5" barrel from remington and so sent snail mail to update my form 2 with the ATF. they responded on letter head stating the data had been annotated in their system, and apologized for the delay.

I just relieved a phone call from ATF, the examiner said he had an open form 2 for me and needed me to resubmit. I agreed, and he will email me in a minute. This is Wednesday at 143 pm feb 27 2013. Here's the problem: I did not renew my type 7 SOT (class II dealer) last year. Am I about to be denied a form 2 on a rifle I already built due to not renewing my license? Fellow dealers please speculate...

Is it safe to assume that you have an approved F2 in hand for an SBR and not a post-sample machine gun?

It's not required that you update them, though they do appreciate it.

Are you sure the open F2 is for the same gun and not for something else you registered?

Why would you have to resubmit? You should just be able to scan the approved F2 and send in that. The date you signed it and the approval date should match up to when you were an 07 FFL with a paid-up SOT.

Yes I have an approved f2 in hand and he's wanting an updated one. Lol no its just an SBR. Although on a seperate note I did have a machine pistol I manufactured, also on a form 2, and when my license was up they didn't ask for anything. I destroyed and turned it in to local police the lat day, but whatever.


The reason I did anything was because remington said I had to have the accurate lengths on the form. The one who said this didn't seem very confident though. I called my local ATF and they said just write a letter so I did, and they wrote the one back.


I'm positive, I've only manufactured 2 firearms.

You need accurate info for the SBR when the F2 is initially filed. Once that's done and approved, if you change the caliber, barrel length, OAL, etc. the ATF appreciates it if you send a letter to them so they can update their records, but it's not required.

Did you get an email from the examiner yet? And are you working with an examiner, or one of the examiner's assistants?

Yes. I wrote up an updated form 2 and sent him a scan of it. It's an examiners assistant, who actually doesn't work directly for the govt, he works for an llc in wv hah.

Any experience w an sbr mod? The 12.5" barrel doesn't cycle ammo, failure to eject. Should I drill out the gas port? It sucks having such a nice firearm that is no longer reliable. :(

The gas port may need opened a bit. We did a few 10.5" ones that ran with no issues, but not every barrel maker drills the ports the same. Go slow and test it every time you open the port just a hair

Thanks for the tip! Cobalt drill bit or carbon steel drill bit?
