Creating EFT fingerprint files for ATF eForm 1 and eForm 4 applications has never been easier!

If you’re an FFL gun dealer handling NFA transactions, the ATF is now accepting electronic fingerprints for both Form 1 and Form 4 applications. To submit electronic fingerprints, you will need specialized software to create EFTs that are compliant with AFT and FBI specifications. Lakota Software Solutions has the software tools you need to create these files! Head over to our new site,, to order a fingerprint scanner and start creating EFT files today.

If you’re looking for an easy way to convert an FD-258 card to an EFT file, we provide that service, too.  Our fee is $25, and we aim to convert it on the same day. All we need is a scanned PDF copy (at 600dpi) of your fingerprint card. Email to learn more.
