      My first suppressor! Apparently my cat feels a certain type of way about it too haha. Is this the look of jealousy?

      Just called ATF/NFA.
      Per SS 23 days after Form 4 Individual was mailed to check cashed.
      40 days after check cashed, still not in the system.
      She, NFA agent, said there is a large backlog; they are trying to add more resources, and as of last week she was instructed to tell callers to expect a 90 day wait till it would in the system, pending.
      Dates are
      Jan 06 mailed
      Jan 29 check cashed
      Mar 10, not yet in system.
      I guess there might of been a surge of application submissions after election?

        @mochoolp It’s not from a surge due to the election. The backlog for getting documents into the system has been happening since around october. It’s because they switched to a new computer system and everyone is still learning the new system. It’s supposed to be more efficient than the old system, but that’ll only work once everyone becomes efficient in using the software, through experience. It does not affect approval times.

          More efficient? Not being in a way to be quicker in the time frame from cash check to approval. And a four plus month learning curve? Is it that complex? Might be more likely filed with software bugs that need correcting would be a possible scenario. But i really don’t have access to how the NFA division is run.
          Thanks for your input.

          Well, the way RG does it, you paying them for all the paperwork, photo, fingerprints, and stamp. So since I didn’t send a check from my account; I don’t know when the check was cashed. I was thinking about calling to see if they can tell me the date the check cleared and just make sure it’s processing. Anyway, I’m pretty good about pushing it to the back of my mind. But I’ll be watching YouTube and see a can. Then go check the wait time tracker for some reason, like it’s going to change or something. Lol That’ll send me down the rabbit hole looking at .30 cal cans. I have SureFire warcomps. So I’ve been lookin at getting a SureFire SOCOM. But I keep going back and forth if I want to wait to get the Obsidian first. That or just go ahead(if I can find one in stock) and pick one up to start the wait.

      Me too – this is DEFINITELY the way to go! Conjugal visits make the wait much easier.

      I’m hopeful that them cashing the check so quickly means the entire process is moving faster now, and I’ll have my approval soon! Don’t ruin it for me and try to talk reason and sense. Let me have my fantasy for awhile…

        I think I would be calling my FFL and let them know it was approved that long ago. I personally have never had one take past 30 days to arrive, good luck

        Last September I waited 8 weeks from approval to stamp in hand. It took my telling the FFL that I written a letter to NFA for a certified copy; then magically they found the stamp, and were bold enough to state they had it for a few weeks.

      I purchased my did azad t can about a month ago from an online dealer and had it transferred through a silencer shop dealer and used their kiosk. Can anyone tell me if silencer shop lets you know when they sent the form 4 and when the check is cashed automatically or if that’s something I have to call and ask about? Thanks, I dont want to start calling when I’m only a couple weeks into a really long wait. I did the docusign stuff about 15days ago and haven’t heard anything else from SS so I was just wondering if they even notify when they send the form 4 or if I’d have to call.

        They’ll email when ATF cashes the check and receives the Form 4. I got the message my check was cashed today from SS. Mailed out April 6th.

        The first can from SS I did not get an email notification when the check was cashed but their site did show the date. The second can from SS they did send me an email notification when the check was cashed. I would recommend checking the site if you did not receive an email.

        If you go to your silencershop account page, look at orders, it will list when delivered to dealer etc.

        Mine states:

      Saker 556 cashed on 11/12/2020

      Still pending on 05/10/2021

      My buddy had two form 4’s. one SBR arsenal Krink and one dead Air Wolverine.

      Both Cashed 11/25 approved on 04/22.

      Seems like they approve them at absolute random..

      Good luck, Men!
