Default normal $$ amount for C&R license?

So I'm considering getting a C&R license. I saw the initial fee is only $30 for a three year license? That's what it says on the application. Is it really that cheap? How long does the process take?

It is that cheap. I got mine back in about three months.

I would figure 3 to 5 months. Seems BATF&E is kinda busy of late. I did the class 3 thing a few months ago and it took 7 months.

Another advantage is companies like Brownells and MidwayUSA gives you a dealer discount once you send them a copy of your C&R. I just looked on Brownells site and as an example a DPMS 18" CM bull barrel 308 upper (when in stock of course) is regular price $739.99 and 667.66 once they get a copy of your C&R. Its worth the trouble. Gun Parts Corp does the same thing.

There is a telephone number listed for inquiries and I called when I had not received my renewal back after 30 days, I was told it would be sent out that day. I received it 4 days later. If I remember correctly they suggested that you please to wait at least 60 days before making an inquiry.

Heck, it takes over six months to get a $200 tax stamp approval.

My question is; are they that back logged or they they just normal government workers and work at a snails pace. I would say the latter.

I mailed my application on Jan. 14, 2013 and received my C&R on Mar. 9, 2013. I thought that was pretty quick for a government agency.

The cost of the license is nothing. The cost of owning the license will break a weak man. Gunbroker and UPS both sent me birthday cards.

The application is here: http://www.atf.gov/forms/download/atf-f-5310-16-notice.html

Link to the PDF is on the lower right. It won't allow direct linking.
