You can then provide your firearm seller Joy's email, so we can exchange the necessary information.
Openrange will then confirm contact with your shipper. Processing of your NFA item, may take 2-4 weeks for ATF approval and shipping.

The Form 4 is the required documentation that must be provided to ATF to approve your tax stamp and is required for you to take possession of your purchase. Unfortunately, there is no way to start this paperwork until your item arrives. We will reach out to you for any required information that may be needed to complete the paperwork.

Openrange will mail your paperwork promptly, but processing can take some time. Turn around times on tax stamps can be in excess for 1 year. During this time Openrange will keep your item comfortable in our safe.
When your tax stamp arrives at Openrange, you can come in to pick up your new firearm. Bring a your current/valid Kenutcky Drivers License and Kentucky CCDW permit (if you have one). While we copy your information, you can finalize your ATF Form 4473 to complete the transfer.
