Only the dealer has the 4473 and it's not sent to the ATF. They have to keep it for 20 years. If a business closes they turn over all 4473's and bound books on hand . These are the only forms the ATF has. One exception is if the dealer is using the ATF online forms then they get these also. So they don't have all forms filled out since 1968.
