I was thinking an in-state (Florida) buyer would still just do one form but it would be a Form4 from that selling dealer to themselves. This would still delay the SBR tax stamp indefinitely. As a side note, if the buyer was in state (Florida), they would also pay 7% sales tax per the auction details, about $2,100. But as Ruben is fond of saying, the buyer should gladly pay it to the beautiful and great state of FL to keep it such. yada yada yada

Never done it myself but that is what was explained to me by someone on Sturm a few years back who had a nice HK33k with a Flemming sear in it I was contemplating. He had one Form4 with that rifle description info on it and he bought it that way as a one stamp package. Someone please correct me if I have something wrong about such a process.
My last Form 4 cleared just a skin under 11 months back in June; time seemed to stand still during that wait time. If at same ATF approval time rate, this 53 wait time would be 11 months and then another 11 months after that to get your hands on a divorced sear. Oops, forgot to add the Dealer-to-Dealer Form 3 Transfer time (too) that would be on top of the 22 months for a divorced sear. But during that time, I wonder how much that divorced sear will be worth in two years from now; especially in the current social/political climate these days. Ugh (teeth grinding/eyes rolling)
But still, a divorced/unmarried Fleming sear (IMHO) is far more versatile than any other form of NFA transferable HK 'happy switch' device...
Please drop already I'm looking for a pack
Here is seller response to my questions lol
"The gun was built and registered by Fleming on a Form 3. The owner was a dealer and gave up his license. It will now leave here on a Form 4"
Also that the form lists the host 93 serial # that the 53 was manufactured from as the machinegun.
Nowhere is a Fleming sear or machinegun sear mentioned on the form (and he has to get back to everyone that has inquired if the sear itself is serialized or not).
He also confirmed that this will leave FL on a single form 4.
This is going to take along time to get to its ultimate purchaser much less their dealer, and the more I hear about it, the more it sounds like a clip on RR conversion.
