        Did you mean 5/27?

        I have a forum 4 for a dead air sandman S that the check was cashed on 4/21. I’m hoping I see that sometime in February. Sigh…

      I’ve got 281xxx on June 14 for a SBR. It’s a stripped JP Rifles 9mm dedicated lower taking Glock mags. I’m waiting to order the 8 inch barrel to finish the upper until it’s approved – got all the part to finish for the lower.

      It looks promising that my form 1 efiled 6-2 should be approved by Christmas maybe as early as next week. I also have 2 form 4s filled at the same time. Unfortunately I think they are caught in the log jamb and could take up till Spring before they are reviewed. I’m thinking that the closer to the July cut off that forms were submitted the longer it’s going to take. If they are reviewing 1500 forms +/- a day now then when they get towards July forms it will take days, if not a week, to review a days worth of submissions. Unless they add on additional staff. I hate saying this but that’s the way it looks to me.

      Well then. I guess they don’t go in order. My form 1 was 5/25 numbered 2526xx. My form still reads in process when I log on.

        I am feeling cheated, LOL. I guess they do not go in order of permit number or date when approving them. I filed 5/26, permit 254,2xx. Still not approved as of 3:15PM EST. What state are you in? It may have to do with the region. I am in Michigan.

      Is it common from the atf to be inconsistent with the order that they approve forms in?

        I think the forms are assigned randomly and the different approves work at different speeds, so approvals can be out of order.

      It’s the government. There’s no reason behind anything they do.

      Amazing looking at the number of forms sent in at $200 apiece, there is a very large bank account somewhere

      It’s my understanding that the reviewers are assigned states. So that is why I think it appears that some approvals are not in exact order. Also I submitted a question by email as to the required engraving. I had saw where someone posted that it’s not needed. A representative from the DoJ emailed me back and confirmed that a SBR created from a form 1 did require the entity that filled the form 1 engrave their name and city, state where SBR was made. So like my 1st SBR I’m going to engrave this one.

      This is getting so frustrating. A lot of us are 5/26, 5/27, 5/28. I swore id see something this week. I don’t get what takes so long, other then just to make it painful and hope that people don’t do it for that reason alone. Hate to say it, but if we don’t see the approvals next week. You can kiss them good bye till at least mid January with the holidays.

      And from the sounds of it they just sit on them for a week before mailing them anyhow. so then again that puts us into January.

      Relax Pat. I do know they work weekends. I also know that I was 4 days after the first approvals I seen from the same day mine was accepted. 5/25. Also you don’t have to worry about the mail. Form 1’s efiled will come in the form of an electronic stamp in your email. You just print it out. So no waiting for mail.
