      My form 4 was cashed on Oct 26. I called ATF multiple times but still not in the system.

        Sounds like no paperwork was ever submitted, or received. I would definitely be re-filing that ASAP, or demanding a refund and shop elsewhere

      I have 2 cans in jail, a Odessa 9 (stamp cashed 07/06) and a Sandman S (stamp cashed 08/13).Called a couple weeks ago on the Odessa and it was still pending. That one’s been 176 days since stamp cashed. I feel like they saw I had another stamp pending and threw the Odessa in the pile with the Sandman so they can do them both at the later date. I just want my can man.

        @Mike If they were batched (highly unlikely for just 2 submissions), they should batch to the earlier date.

      Pending FBI NICS as of 07/27/2020. Seems the ATF takes about 3 months to process before sending to NICS. NICS seems to be the make or break point for fast approvals. Have a Switchback 22 purchased on 02/15/2020, delayed shipping and check wasnt cashed until 06/30/2020 with NICS sent in September….here’s to hoping that comes through soon

      1 year 2 months 9 days
      Or 62 weeks
      Or 436 days….

      Sandman S filled October 28,2019.
      Nothing.

      Glad to see others are getting theirs at reasonable times though.

        If there is still no record of your transfer in the system and the check hasn’t been cashed (per your 12/11 post), the best course of action would be to resubmit the application (even if frustrating, this is way outside the normal timeline and highly indicative of a lost submission). I would recommend adding tracking to the application package to confirm receipt.

      A bit aggravating as my first purchase, seeing the masses get approved at 110-200 days, and I’m at 230 days still pending. And when I call, they have zero information beyond that it’s pending, simply saying the recent average is 7 months, and that I’m just a hair over 7 months so it should be any day now. I’ve asked if any issues or delays are noted, and they always say no everything appears as it should be.

      Stamp arrival at FFL – 01/13/2021

      I went the same day, of stamp arrival at FFL, to pickup my new suppressor; went on my lunch break. My FFL requires form 4473 to be completed in order to receive a suppressor. Completed this last task and waited while the background check was being processed…. DELAYED.

      Picking up my suppressor – 01/20/2021

        This was an individual registration, correct? Your FFL screwed you… the 4473 needs to be completed, but with the box for question 28 checked.

        Question 28 states: “No NICS check was required because a background check was completed during the NFA approval process on the individual who will receive the NFA Firearm(s), as reflected on the approved NFA application.”

          Yes, it was an individual form 4. And after some research, I found this out as well. Just another way to keep my from what is mine.! I should have had it when my stamp arrived, not having to wait until today to get it.

      Payment received May 26, 2020
      Called today and was told it is still pending, but has finally been given to an examiner.

      Does anyone know roughly how long it takes for approval once in an examiner’s hands?

      248 days from payment to approval
      304 days from forms sent to approval
      Now to wait for my dealer to receive.

      Located in not-so-good-ol CT. No idea if my location has anything to do with the much higher than current average wait time or not. But just so people in CT can get a heads up, you may or may not experience something similar.

      Also to note, the delay due to the paperwork error DID cause a delay, they did not slide me back in line according to when they first received my forms. The error was that I forgot to write in the “200” in the box for how much I authorize ATF to charge my credit card

      Seriously unhappy.

      E-filed individual form 4
      Check cashed: 04/02/2020
      Form 4 approved: 12/02/2020
      Tax stamp never received. 307 days and counting…

      ATF said I need to send in a letter formally asking for a certified copy of the stamp to be mailed out. Then another 60 day clock starts. Unbelievable!

        Hang in there. Had one in jail with check cashed 8/10/20. Was approved 11/29/20. Stamp arrived at dealer last Tuesday. 2 months for the stamp to arrive!

      197 days from check cashed to approval but it took 78 days for the stamp to arrive at the dealer. ATF said to write in and ask for a certified copy if I didn’t have it by 60 days. And to think I have to pay for privilege and graciousness of the ATF to own such a thing. What a clown world.

        @ctnsupra1 Did you actually wait it out and have it actually arrive in 78 days? Or did you submit a letter requesting a certified copy?

          @Motoxxxman I wrote the letter to the ATF asking for a copy on day 77 and received the call from the dealer the next day. The letter from the ATF to the dealer was postmarked 1/28/2021 so around day 70 was when ATF mailed the stamp out.

            About 4 months ago, I had a form 4 approved, waited 6 weeks and 2 days before mailing a request for a certified copy from the ATF. It took the ATF 3 weeks to mail me a copy. Not bad considering Thanksgiving week was in the reply time. Oddly when I told the dealer I mailed the ATF, amazing, the deal call me to say he had the stamp for some three weeks.
