4473 History and Downloads

Written by Jarad on March 20, 2023

  • The 4473 history in FastBound is not an exemption from printing and storing the paper copies.

  • Electronic storage of your 4473’s requires a variance from the ATF. Being able to reprint or download the 4473 from FastBound does not meet the requirements to obtain a variance.

  • 4473’s downloaded from FastBound will not reflect any changes made to the 4473 after it was printed and completed.

Please contact our team by using the chat if you have any questions.

All 4473’s created on or after 11/9/2021 can be downloaded or reprinted directly from FastBound with the following exceptions

  • 4473’s started with electronic signatures turned off.

    • These 4473’s are only partially filled out in FastBound and are completed on paper. FastBound cannot reproduce what was done on the paper form outside of FastBound.

  • 4473’s completed and sent to a 4473 storage provider.

    • 4473’s that are sent to a separate system or provider for electronic storage must be reprinted or modified in that system.

      • 4473’s that were sent to 4473 Cloud will have a direct link to the 4473 in 4473 Cloud.

You can view a contacts 4473 history by searching for the contact and clicking the “View the 4473 history for this contact” link in the 4473 History panel

Notes you have added to the 4473 when completing or void/no transferred will be shown in this table.


You can only download a 4473 if the 4473 was printed on or after 11/9/2021 and the 4473 was not sent to a 4473 storage provider and electronic signatures was turned on in your account settings at the time the 4473 was created.

The download link will be on the right hand side of the table. If the download link is not available then that 4473 does not meet the criteria above.

  • Go to 4473 Cloud – The 4473 was sent to 4473 Cloud, a separate 4473 storage provider, and must be downloaded from there.

    • Clicking this link will take you to 4473 Cloud.

      • 4473’s created on or before 3/23/22 will link to the 4473 Cloud Dashboard.

      • 4473’s created on or after 3/24/22 will link directly to the 4473 in 4473 Cloud.

  • Unavailable (Why?) – This 4473 cannot be downloaded.

    • 4473’s that were created when electronic signatures are turned off cannot be dowloaded.

    • 4473’s that were completed or void/no transferred prior to 11/9/2021 cannot be downloaded.

  • Download – This 4473 can be downloaded. However, the 4473 will not reflect any changes that may have been made to the 4473 outside of FastBound. If you made changes to the 4473 you’ll need to make them again.
