    What are people seeing for stamp approved to stamp received lately? I have one that was approved on January 3 and have to go to my dealer later this week for some other stuff and am hopeful my stamp will be there by then saving a trip

    Looks like the approved to stamp received dates are getting longer.
    Mine was approved Mid November and took 5 days to get the stamp.

      Ya. Mine was approved the same day. Still waiting for the stamp as well. It would appear that there is one person working the mail room. They are off Monday through Thursday and work a half day on Friday.

    How in the world is it that some have their stamps 6 days after their approval date while I
    am looking at 21 days as of tomorrow. What kind of system works like that?
    I had one of the longest waits from check cashed to being approved at 281 days. Now I look to be one with the longest wait from approval to getting the stamp, and there were no issues along the way!!

      I sometimes wonder if it has something to do with the dealer, how much volume they do.
      I guess it would make sense to pool a group together to mail out if they are all going to the same place, and it makes more sense (to them) to send several at a time rather than a few here and there.

      I had stamps arrive at dealers as soon as 5 days from approval, to as long as 19 days.
      Not sure why there is such a variance, other than possibly the NFA branch getting a batch together to send to one destination.

      Just speculation on my part obviously, I have no data to back that up.

        I called my dealer today and what you state seems to be the case. He stated that he has received mailings with multiple approvals. Dates were from 5 days to 27 days from stamp approval.

        None the less, it’s “First Class Mail Letter (1 oz.) – Metered Mail/Stamps.com Rate $0.46”.. For 200.00 bucks I would fully expect them to burn .46 cents. Figure in the cost of the envelope and we’ll call it .50 cents to mail out on date of approval. Even with that said, I’m sure it would take another day or two to make it to the mail room, stuff the envelope, and slap a stamp on it, then give it to the USPS.

    Just an FYI for what it’s worth.
    In speaking with someone on the incoming phone line there at the NFA Branch, it was mentioned that after approval the paperwork goes to the STAMP issuers and then mailed.

    I am at 14 days in Iowa. My FFL hasn’t responded yet. Did you ship it to CCA by chance?

      Ruby: 21 calendar days or 21 Government days? Big difference.
