ATF Form 1 (individual) template
« on: October 31, 2009, 07:01:14 pm »
First form that is overlooked a lot is the Certificate of Compliance.  This form is signed by the applicant and just promises the ATF that the applicant is a US citizen.  Only 1 copy is required with application.  Filling out is self-explaintory with the template.

The Form 1 is for manufacturing a NFA item, be it the applicant's own suppressor or making a SBR from the applicant's own host as in the example in the template.  Some things to note (that weren't filled in) is 4.c. (caliber) don't use "multi", it must be a specific caliber.  4.e. (length of barrel) don't use a range like 7.5"-14.5" as the ATF will send the form back.  You can swap uppers legally as long as the applicant retains the original that is registered on the form and can be installed.  Changes can be made as long as they are TEMPORARY and can be changed WITHOUT tools.  4.f. (length overall) use the shortest length if there is a collapsible stock.

The back is self-explaintory with the template.  The applicant MUST submit 2 passport photos along with a FBI fingerprint card.  The CLEO will fill out the bottom part.  Most do a backround check and charge a fee for that service and can take up to 30 days to complete.  Also be sure that your CLEO will sign the form BEFORE making a NFA item.  If they refuse the applicant should think about forming a Revocable Living Trust which will eliminate the CLEO step along with no fingerprints and no photographs needed.  The Form 1 MUST be submitted in duplicate and the form MUST be printed front to back.  The ATF WON'T accept forms with page 1 and page 2 on seperate pieces of paper.

    I would think that the templates would be stickied as many people ask questions on how to fill the forms out along with what they need to do.  This is as simple as I can do it and it should be everything needed to do.
