OMB Number: 1512-0026.
Form Number: ATF F 3 (5320.3).
Abstract: ATF F 3 (5320.3) is filed by Federal firearms licensees who have paid the special (occupational) tax to import, manufacture or deal in National Firearms Act (NFA) firearms to transfer a NFA firearm to a similarly qualified licensee.
Current Actions: The form has been revised to include updated information, provide additional information relating to post-registration changes, provide a release to allow ATF to provide the transferee with information regarding the application upon request, and to make the instructions consistent with other forms. Also, the annual burden has decreased because of a miscalculation in the computation of burden hours in the last submission.

Estimated Number of Respondents: 2,521.
Estimated Time Per Respondent: 30 minutes.
Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 13,111.
