    I am excited to see what happens with approval dates as the glut of pre-41f starts to clear the system.

    I’m hoping they speed up. Just submitted my first two NFA items…Daniel Defense 300blk SBR and Surefire suppressor.

    Before everybody starts getting too excited…this basketball in the garden hose has yet to hit. Upon conversation with several folks who are in that submission pile, they have pending dates of the first two weeks of August and one has a mid September pending date. They (5 people) all purchased from 7-11 July. Yes that is a small sampling but it still is indicative that the huge plug has yet to hit.

      Ya the next month or so should be “telling” of the progress on it. My next is pending October 19th so I’m a long way off…

      My dealer told me he had a bunch of post 41f approvals…which I was a little suspect about and should have asked for proof…but I was busy filling out another Form 4.

    From what I learnt speaking with 5 different people while tracking my 07/12/16 pending (approved 05/06/2017) the motherlode of last July’s approvals date stamped pre 41F are approx 300k submissions with a check cashed/pending date beginning 07/19/2016…

        I have been buying the needed accessories and threaded barrels for the last 6 months! lol. I still need to work up a subsonic load for my blackout though. I tried a couple but they weren’t extracting at all.

          nice! I’m holding off on getting a 300blk just due to ammo prices haha. 9mm and .223 in bulk adds up quick enough…someday!

          I had similar problems with extraction and cycling. Ended up being bullet seat depth. I am loading cast 208 gr. They need to be seated what seems like excessively deep, but work. Currently the load I am using is IMR4198 11gr, seating to 1.195″. Hope that helps, good luck. I am picking up my can today finally. Tomorrow I will see for sure.

    AAC sdn-6
    Mailed 7/25/16
    Cashed/pending 08/02/16
    Approved / 05/10/17
    Received stamp 05/15/17

    This is definitely a post 41f approval, however I could be a fluke or luck of the draw when they pass out stacks of forms mine happened to be close to the top.

    The funny thing is I called today at 10:00am eastern time and was advised still pending. My LGS called at 5:00pm with the good news

    I have tried to add it twice. From my cell phone. Glad you got a good laugh. You act like this web site is not plagued with problems and I did not add it on purpose. Trust me, I would like everybody to know the entire time line so that it may help someone in the future

      There are 184,000 applications pending in front of you, unfortunately.

      Read the thread on congressional inquiry.

    UNLESS somehow they divided out the SS truck load to a group of analysts and left the other submissions to a different group of analysts…

    Bound to be some confusion and boxes mixed up. What does happen is that the trusts are reviewed prior to approval so those without trusts (individual) often times go to other examiners as the trust does not need to be reviewed…..

    But they do follow the first in, first out policy as best they can …… which means nothing good for those behind the bubble

      Glass half full says….in about 3 months when the basketball makes it through the hose …wait times will drop down to maybe 6 months?

      I don’t work at the ATF nor did I stay at a holiday inn express last night. These statements have not been approved by the FDA. Executive producer Dick Wolf.

        Reality: It took from 1 Oct 2015 to 1 June 2017 to process 187,000 applications (that is 8 months) there are 184,000 applications remaining……..that will take at least 8 more months to process them, not the 3 months it took to submit them, if you use the preceding applications process time.

        Sooooooooo, after the nine more months to process those applications (which would be about 16-18 month wait time for those applications submitted 1 Oct 2016) it should start to drop off and after about a year (from now) should be down around 4 to 5 months.

          I honestly pulled those numbers out of nowhere, just wishful thinking. My NEXT closest submitted form 4 went pending 10/19/16 so who knows….bunch more after that too…mailed one in yesterday hahah

          not true, they hired a bunch more examiners and are working around the clock. In my previous post I’ve indicated that i was told approvals were made over the holiday weekend. They are processing thousands of applications per day… so you can’t compare the data from 2 years ago and apply it today.

    Real reality, the throughput has increased a lot since 2015. I think 3-4 months for the remaining pre 41f stuff, definitely speculative, is about right. Then I think the average approval time will spiral down pretty quickly to about 3 months. So the Omega that I purchased 03/20/17 should be approved 11/20/17

    Well, I just got my stamp for a silencer I submitted the paperwork for on July 11th, so they have to be getting close to the bottom of the pre-41F paperwork.

    Would really like to see feed back from Silencer Shop updated in this forum being they were one of the largest players in NFA class 3 sales. An informative picture can be seen just from stamps received showing the weekly number of stamps received post/pre 41F, Form #, electronic or paper.
