What is the connection patch number for the BATFE to get this form. I was looking on thier website and I wasn't sure which number to call. Would it be my local field division, division council or something else? The only other phone number I see on thier website is 703-455-7801.

I forget what number I called, but when I did, the woman answering the phone seemed annoyed. I guess they don't like helping people?!? She sent the forms, though. I just haven't sent them back in yet.

Check out surplus rifle.com, they provide and excellent walkthrough on the process.

BATFE, much as I take pause to say it, was polite and professional to me. While I know they're perhaps not the most popular organization on a gun forum, they are the ones issuing the license, and provide you with a ton of literature, almost as if to say "Hey, don't forget you're qualified to get that one, too!"

This is really the best kept secret in our world, and you'd be amazed at what is available to you once the license is obtained.

You can also order your app's online. Thats what i did. Payed with me cc and it took me around five weeks to get it. I'm not so sure about the leo (law enforcement officer) having to approve you app though. Trust me its the best 30 buck you could spent. Its nice having the ups guy knock with you new gun in hand. Thanks Anthony

Thanks I'll call tomm to get the forms for the C&R license. Right now I was seriously thinking of getting this Mauser 98K from Simpsons. I called them up today and put a hold on it. Don't know of they marked it on thier website yet but as soon as all the paperwork with the C&R for is done I'll have it shipped to me. They have a 60 day hold so that should give me enough time.

What do you guys think?

Your area LEO doesn't get to approve it, you're just informing him you have applied for it. They have no say in the matter, unless maybe the applicant is a criminal and they inform the BATFE....

Thanks Scott. I ended up getting that K98k I posted the link to from Simpsons. I'm kind of nervous though I hope I made the right choice with this gun. I won't relax until its in my hands and I can inspect it myself.

Good. Let us know how long it takes to get it in your hands and the condition of the rifle as compared to the description. And a range report too....

I will once I get it. I'll also take close up pictures and post them here. Hopefully the gun will get to the FFL dealer sometime between tomm (Wed) and Friday.
