Instead of saying "BATF Form 4 SBR application" I would say "copy of my Application for Tax Paid Transfer and Registration of Firearm". He may not know what an SBR is and that's the name of the form. Also, I don't know much about trusts - are you the "Executor" of the trust or a "Trustee" of the trust? I thought an "Executor" was a "will" thing (like last will and testament thing). But I'm not an attorney of any kind, and certainly not an estate planning attorney, so whatever the document says your title is would be best I suppose.

In addition, if the transferee is other than an individual, a copy of the Form 5320.23, National Firearms Act (NFA) Responsible Person Questionnaire, completed by each responsible person must be provided to their respective chief law enforcement officer. The chief law enforcement officer is considered to be the Chief of Police; the Sheriff; the Head of the State Police; or a State or local district attorney or prosecutor.
So it would seem you need to send:
- The letter
- A copy of the Form 4
- A copy of the 5320.23 for those responsible persons who live in the jursdiction of this particular CLEO
If there were many responsible persons, and if they did not all live in the jurisdiction of the same CLEO, it sounds like only the Responsible Person Questionnaire would have to go to the other CLEOs (for areas other than the jurisdiction for the address in 2a). Since you're the sole trustee that's not an issue for you - but might be for some other trusts.
Hope that helps.
