      Form 4 Individual Mailed 4/15/20
      Dead Air Mask From Capital Armory
      Status on my order sill says “Form 4 Mailed”, which is what it has always said.
      I live in Texas and I called the ATF twice and all they gave was that it was pending, along with their canned time frame between now and when our sun dies.
      I just hope I get it before Christmas.

      These wait times are brutal. This is my first Form 4 Individual. I purchased my Dead Air Mask from Capitol Armory on 4/15/20 and the form 4 was mailed on 4/25/20 and it’s still pending after I contacted the ATF. The reps at Capitol Armory told me that people are waiting 12-13 months right now…oof. This kind of turns me off about buying another can in the future and I was considering one for my 9mms. If things change, who has good recommendations for a 9mm can for my S&W M&P 2.0 as a host? Also considered a .223/5.56 can but I heard that a can on an AR will increase the amount of gas that you’ll get to the face from the bolt. Do you need to modify anything else in the rifle if you plan on getting a can for it? I know some people change the BCG and charging handle to mitigate blowback but I think I recall reading about people needing to modify something about the gas system when adding a suppressor. Thanks in advance for your opinions and advice. Let us all continue to commiserate about the horribly archaic FFA process. Stay safe everyone!

      @heisenberg832 Average wait times right now are around 7 months. Practically HALF of what it almost always has been. But yes, some people typically wait 10-14 months, especially if there is something questionable on their criminal record.

      To reduce the gas blowback when mounting a can on an AR, you would want to install an adjustable gas block, allowing you to reduce the amount of gas in the system. Not only does it reduce/eliminate gas blowback, but it also drastically reduces recoil of the gun with and without a can. I always run adjustable gas blocks on mine, even if I never plan to put a can on it.

      Yeah, on 2 seperate occasions and both times they told me the only thing they could say was whether it was pending or approved.

      @heisenberg832 I opted for the OSS Helix because of their “flow-through” technology. Gasses out the front of the can and practically eliminates back gassing. Lot of YouTube out there on the OSS cans and sound tests. Now if my stamp would just get here. 20 days since approved and still waiting

      I am also at 20 days since approval. Approved, Sept 30. Waiting for the dealer to call to say they have the stamp. Hopefully any day now.

      I’m in about 11 months on this so far – longest wait ever for me. Sounds like I’ll have another 3 weeks or so before I get the my stamp in hand.
