      Purchased Gemtech Trek on 28 Nov 20. All data entered via kiosk. Check cashed 29 Dec 20. Still waiting. 235 days total, to this point. 204 days since check was cashed. I purchased 2 more suppressors on 28 Jan 21, checks cashed on 5 Mar 21. We shall see, I guess. 🙂

        You are possibly very close to getting your Gemtech approved. Currently there appears to be just over two hundred day average. Those pending in January and March, who knows what those approval dates will be? I have one, over 170 days pending. I don’t expect to hear anything till end in August, if not later.

          I knew it would be a long process. My dealer told me it would probably be this long. 🙂 It’s starting to feel like Christmas is approaching… lol. Take care.

      My check was cashed OCT 21 (279 days) and I’m still waiting on being approved….. It is just all over the place with the approvals.

        Yea I can’t stand the wait! Bought mine Jan. 6th(202 days) and check cashed feb 8(169 days) this is my first can or NFA item for that matter. I was hoping to hear something about the six month mark. But it’s 21 days passed and I called to check last Friday the 23rd, and they just said still pending. I really hope my pass port pic isn’t screwing it up. I had long hair because by barber hadn’t and still hasn’t opened from the coof. So, I had a hat on. Well, they told me to take it off. So I did and tried to make myself look presentable. Well, they took the pic and I look like the Unabomber. Lol. I ask to take another one and the guy said it was fine not to worry about it happens all the time. Anyway, I just hope my paperwork isn’t setting on someone’s desk. They keep looking like, well he is all good, a Veteran, with no criminal history. But my God look at him… lol

          This is my 1st can as well, I knew it was going to take a while so I’m not overly worried about it. I just hope SleepyJoe and David Chipman don’t try to ban them before I get mine!

      The wait is killing me.

      Checks cashed and status:

      10/22/2020-Pending

      10/27/2020-Pending

      11/13/2929-Pending

      Lady told me who my examiners were and that there is no issues with my paperwork. Also mentioned that the average wait is still 7 months. I just got a new can for my Tp9 so the wait begins. With my luck the three aforementioned cans will come at the same time lol.

      I’m guessing that no one is updating the NFA trackers here, and at SilencerCo? It looks like average wait times are well over 200 days from check cashed to approval for Individual Form 4s, yet both web sites are still indicating those wait times are between 155 and 170 days. Just curious.

          I wonder if there is a large influx of orders slowing things down? I know that the examiners have been working from home throughout Covid. It was my understanding that fingerprint verification at the FBI is the bottleneck, and that there is simply no sense of urgency anywhere within the government portion of the process. 🙂 Ahhhhh well.

            I believe the end of 2020 resulted in larger application submission. This may have continued into January and possibly longer. I’ve seen people report between mailed forms to checks cashed taking days to weeks longer. I heard others say that from the date cashed before getting into the atf database taking a couple months. The lack of any form 4’s submitted in 2021 getting approved is another indicator of large # of applications being processed.

        Congratulations! Slow, but moving. I see that some purchases made about the same time as ours had stamps in hand in less than 210 days. I guess it just depends on the examiners.. And the folks doing prints at the FBI.

      264 days now on my Gemteck 5.56, 202 days on my Sparrow .22 and Nomad 30 cal. I’m now willing to bet that the last bought will be the first approved. LOL.

      Anyway…

        Well you getting 3 stamps at once clears up a lot of bandwidth for the rest of us!

        217 days since check cashed…still waiting!

        That’s just awful. Mine was submitted end of March of 2021 and just spoke to the BATF this week and they told me my application is at a reviewers desk and should be approved in the next 30 days .

        Your wait time is absolutely unacceptable but again it has to do with your criminal background with misdemeanors and infractions.

        How’d you find out you were approved without receiving your stamp yet? Did you just happen to call between approval and stamp being sent?

      Tax Stamp Cashed on 2/1/21

      Approved: STILL WAITING

      I called the ATF and the response was if you don’t hear anything by the end of the month…call us back.

      WTF…..254 days and NOTHING.

        I’m right there with ya, like almost to the day just one week separates our checks cashed. Bought mine 1/6/21(280 days) and check was cashed 2/8/21(248 days). I’ve been calling ever other week, for about a month and a half now. Just keep getting the same “pending”. It’s getting rather frustrating. I know it can take a min, this is my first NFA item so little more anxious/excited. I want to get a 5.56 & .30 can, really wish I would have bought them at the same time. Because this wait is making me not want to do it again. But that is probably the point. Ugh hopefully we will get our stamps in soon.

          Same,check cashed 2/8/21 purchased in Dec of ‘20 but had some issues with my trust. So had to resubmit as individual.
          My first form 4 in 2016 took 11 months.
          When I called the NFA branch last month I was told the average wait time was around 7 months.
          Uhh sure 🤡

          😂😂😂 that made me chuckle. 716 days today and still no response. Congress man involved and looking into case now. I’d take 250/300 days anyway over 700+.

            My guess is your paperwork got kicked back. Did NFA branch have your paperwork at all?
            What dealer did you go through?

              Nope. Never “revived it”. Dealer called them and they confirmed that it was there. My guess sone examiner took it home and never examined it.

            That is f@ck man, I’m sorry. So October 29, 2019 or around there. Idk maybe your paperwork got screwed up when they moved from their office to their homes to work, because the coof. Damn that’s BS. Hopefully they will get you squared away. That long they need to tell the examiner who is on your case to stop whatever they are doing and find and complete your stamp. Not to do anything else the done. If they can’t find it contact you and the shop and immediately complete it. Hope it gets done man you have more patience then I do.
