How long it takes depends on how long the ARNG takes to approve the DD form 368 and DA 4187 for a conditional release. I have seen it take 2 days, and I have seen it take 2 years, and I have seen it never happen at all. Once you have that, then an Army Recruiter can begin processing. If you have less than 180 consecutive days of active service, including BCT/AIT, then the Army will consider you a DOS (Days of Service) applicant versus a full blown Prior Service. What that means to you is that you won't be subject to the same restrictions placed on Prior Service applicants, and will have more options.

Few things need to happen.
1. you need to find out if your unit will let you leave. If not, there is nothing an Army Recruiter can do.
2. You need a letter of release from (i believe) a Flag officer
3. You need to get an Army Recruiter to start paperwork
4. You will likely need to go back to AIT. Occasionally you can keep your MOS.

It can take anywhere from 1 month up to 3. I've seen both. It doesn't all rely on your recruiter. That's the easy part. It all depends on how fast your 201 (I believe that is the correct form) makes its way all the way up to HQ, and them comes all the way back down. Obviously this can take some time.
