    I know the wait time on a NRA stamp is months if you don't have a class 1 FFL, but if you do have a class 1 FFL is the wait time any shorter?

    The NRA has noting to do with a tax stamp

    The NFA branch of the ATF issues the tax stamp.

    There is no class 1 FFL, there is a Class 1 SOT

    A type 1 FFL is one who deals in firearms other than destructive devices and is not a pawn broker.

    If you have a FFL and SOT your wait time as a dealer of NFA items is shorter but if your asking if having a FFL and buying a NFA item for your personal use is shorter than no, you still have to file a form 4.

    Manufacturer or dealer to dealer is on a Form 3 and transfer to a end user is typically on a form 4, unless your a law enforcement agency and I am guessing you are not then its on a form 5

    I assume you mean NFA stamp? The wait time depends on which type of transfer you're doing.

    If you are an individual (No FFL/SOT) you'll be doing a form 1 or form 4 which will be roughly 6 months.

    If you're a FFL with no SOT, you will still be using a form 1 or form 4 and will be treated like any other person.

    If you are a FFL/SOT transferring a weapon to yourself as an individual (not the company), you will still be using a form 1 or a form 4 and be treated like everyone else with the 6 month wait. If you are transferring a weapon to the company for sale or other company use, you will be using a form 3 which should take between 6-8 weeks, but can take as much as 3 months if there are issues. What really cuts down on your time is if you are a manufacturer in which case you can file a form 2 or "notice of manufacture" which has no lead time at all.

    And like Crazy-MP said, there is no "class 1 FFL", the closest thing you could get is probably "type 1 FFL". Class typically refers to the SOT: 01 SOT is for an importer, 02 SOT is for a manufacturer, and 03 SOT is for a dealer.
