"I am contacting you in regards to the BD-44 rifle that is to be shipped to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms Technology Branch for evaluation."
Since you have chosen to put ths in a public forum I will reply here....
"On of September 6th 2012, The BATF approved my form 6 for the import of the modified BD-44 to the Technology Branch for evaluation"
The Form-6 DID NOT cover the requested welding, we advised you of this....
". Since then I have been unable to get any explanation on the reason for this delay or explanation to what exactly is the problem."
1) You requested changes to the firearm NOT covered by your Form-6, you then wanted another FFL to import it for you, that is NOT covered on your Form-6
"I do not understand why no one is willing to be forthcoming about this issue or willing to discuss the situation with me at all."
As explained time and time again, your Form-6 does NOT cover what you requested.... It is as simple as that.
" if you could please inform me of the cause of this delay and when I can expect the rifle to be shipped to the BATF, thank you "
I think we have covered this several times, no matter how you insist or were you choose to post we will NOT break the law.... Perhaps you can find someone who will ? That it is your priviledge.
Lets consider this file closed.
