    The lady I talked to a couple days ago said they was in July still,but I’ve seen people say they’re in April so just curious to who’s right?

    All Form 4s are in the start of April for check cashed date. SOME forms being returned in July are for Form 1s. Are you not asking specific enough questions, perhaps?

    As iRobot would say: “I’m sorry, my responses are limited. You must ask the right questions.”

      My form 4 with a trust was sent overnight on nov 3, my credit card was charged the $200 on the 6th. The lady said that was my something Date, process date or something I forgot. So I guess I’m just asking how long before they actually get to nov form 4’s

    I would guess “pending” date. Most forms submitted are in this status for the majority of the time. It means it is one of 200,000 forms sitting in a file box stacked up to the ceiling until they get to your portion of the backlog. Including the 41P rush, I expect the wait time to be pushed to 9-12 months.

    If you submitted your form of November THIS YEAR, I’d feel pretty happy if you receive your stamp by November of NEXT YEAR. All of course, depending on the condition of the HP Act.

      Yeah that’s what I was thinking too, she said about 8 months but we’ll see. How do you know if it gets pushed back?

    Not a true satement. “All Form 4s are in the start of April for check cashed date”. My form 4 check was cashed on March 30th and I have not received my stamp yet.

    Just because your sample size of one doesn’t factually align does not change the outcome of a statement. Even if your stamp is approved, it is taking 2-3 weeks currently for processing time before your stamp reaches the dealer’s mailbox. It is likely it is complete unless it has been placed in error status.

    I talked to them yesterday. My check went through 21st of July. She said they are processing the end of July now and mine is Pending. Averaging 8 months from the date the check goes through.

    I just spoke to NFA branch and they are in mid April processing forms. I am waiting for a Form 4 approval and they cashed my check May 12th. I was told Mid January most likely and the current wait is 8 months and growing…

    My check was cashed on March 28th,’16 by way of ACH through my bank, notified by dealer that he received my stamp today (12/14/16), just two weeks shy of being a nine month wait.

    App was a Paper Trust.

    3 form 4’s with card charged on April 11 were approved on Nov 20 and received by 2 different dealers on Dec 12. Another form 4 with card charged on April 18 also arrived at dealer on Dec 12. So that’s 4 stamps received from April 11 and 18. They’re moving faster than I really expected. A year ago they were coming back in 90 days sometimes, I had transfers in 2008 and 2009 that took over a year when examiners were assigned differently, but there were only a handful of examiners then too. They now go to the “next available” examiner and they all move at slightly different speeds and some wait longer than others to mail forms…so there are many variables that can throw your estimated time off by a month or more, but they are moving

    I have a question about the process, this is my first purchase. My cashiers check was cashed mid May, 2016. I called today and my status is ‘pending’. The woman told me it was entered July 25th. Does that mean my wait began when it was entered on July 25th or when my check was cashed?

    Thank you for the help,

      I have an update and question.
      I just called today to get an update. I purchased my can April 28th. Form 4 trust sent May 4th. Check was cashed July 25th.
      Why was there such a big lag time from my from form mail date and my check cashed? Now my wait is from July 25th? Wtf!

    When the check was cashed. If I’m not mistaken. That’s what the Rep at ATF told me. My check was cashed on 5/5 and entered on 6/14 approved 12/27. Just under 8 months from check cashed.

    Thanks for the updates guys. I knew when I bought my suppressor in June I would be in for a wait, but I almost believe now the hearing protection bill may be more likely to shorten my wait than waiting on the ATF. If the three month average of 280 days correct then March can not come to soon enough. Keep up with the updates as they give me something to read and a little hope as I wait.

      At best you’re looking at a mid april approval but more than likely you’re looking sometime in june.
