Online SBR form 1 approved

I used the online application to file a form 1 for an SBR. It was approved in 20 days. It was easier then I thought. Being it is a government website I thought it would be terrible. Glad my shooting buddies talked me into trying this. The last form 1 I mailed took 11 months.

I did a paper/personal in Mid March for a Krinkov build. This thread gives me hope that maybe even the paper side of it might be speeding up!

Ive been trying to do the online form for two straight hours.
Its a freekin nightmare. Nothing saves ( even though it says it does ) and it glitches so bad I cant finish the steps.
Ive done it literally 6 times now and it won't let me pay at the end.
The payment window just won't pop up.


EDITED TO ADD
I think I finally got it. I guess maybe everyone and their brother is doing an individual SBR tonight and crashing the system.
So the wait begins. Short barreled AR!

Hey guys, did they email you an approval?
Or were you checking their status online.

Mine went in almost two weeks ago.

Just a heads up, it went through today. Exactly 30 days!
I did a Krinkov last March, still waiting.
Wish I would have known how fast the online is.

Thanks!
