I stopped in my Class III dealer today to make the last payment on my suppressor and start the paperwork. After digging around for about ten minutes they dug out a Form 4 packet and a Responsible Party Questionnaire. As I was flipping through the packet, I noticed that Page 1 on the CLEO copy was on the back of Page 3 of the ATF Copy 2 - to be returned to registrant. I asked for a copy that was copied correctly as a copy that is sent to the CLEO cannot be returned to the registrant, and vice versa. The dealer informed me that there was a new process in which all three copies were sent to the ATF and they send a copy to the CLEO in my jurisdiction. This just sounds fishy. Then I started digging into the Form 4 instructions (noting that the form was updated since I last filled out a Form 4) but it appears the instructions are still the same: Submission. The transferor shall submit 2 forms (ATF Copy 1 and Copy 2 (Registrant)) to the NFA Branch at the address on the face of the form. All items on the form are to be completed except as noted in the instructions and any attachment included with the submission. The applicant shall direct the 3rd copy (CLEO) complete copy of the form to the chief law enforcement officer as provided in instruction 2f and item 12. I don't know about you, but this doesn't seem to match the instructions. Has anyone heard of something like this? Last I sent in a Form 4, I sent two copies to the ATF, and mailed one to my Sheriff.
