    I called ATF today and my form 4 is with a research assistant. I was transferred to their phone and left a voicemail. What happens now?

      Its a wonder you got told what you did. All i get is its pending and they cant see any other information. Not sure who’s worse, the department of motor vehicles or the ATF.

    I spoke with Jessica a research assistant at ATF after I left her a voicemail when I was transferred. She said my background check is awaiting the FBI approval. And she couldn’t tell me how long because the FBI is another agency. Fingers crossed hopefully soon.

    I’ve been waiting since 9/28/18 so I’m sure I have months to go (Dead Air Mask Suppressor). I am curious to know if I were to efile somewhere and get a can for my hunting rifle if the second efiled request would come in faster than the Form 4 individual and have that before hunting season in early October.

      You cannot efile for a Form 4 at this time. You can only do so for a Form 1. The answer to your question is no.

        Since this E-file topic has re-emerged, I will once again post the question that no one will answer. Since no Form4 E-filing has happened since April, 2014, why does this site have a bar on the graph for F4 Individual- E-file? If you try to filter on the Wait Time graph checking only the boxes for Form 4 Individual and E-file, it will give results for Form 4 Trust-Efile (which I do not think is a real category either). That is, it won’t show any results related to the bar graph. This implies that the F4 Individual -E-File bar has no real data behind it. BUT, I have noticed that the numbers change over time! For a long time it showed 188 days between check cashing and approval. But now it says 195 days. How can a bar with no data change? I have posed this question to the admin of the tracker to no avail. And I’ve posed this question on the forums a couple of times. Can anyone answer this? (of course it is just my curiosity working here. It is of no consequence.)
        Until next time….

          Okay here’s the deal. The reason form 4 eform is on there because no one gives a shit, 95%of people don’t even update the graph at all. All the issues in wait time are from people with common names getting hits from the 6 databases they use and these Losers Who have a criminal record of some kind, “we’ll i was arrested but the court expunged it” GET REAL.the ATF does the background checks—plain and simple. They don’t scan fingerprints and they don’t go to the FBI. I rolled my own fingerprints on the forms I requested from ATF using an office ink pad, I’m a normal guy just. No one has to get them done professionally. Think about it. I had a from 1 e filed 11-1-18 not some silencer-shop shit, did it via ATF website, took a photo on iPhone rolled my own prints,received the cover letter and sent next Day fingerprints with the cover letter, fingerprints done on my own approved 11-11-18. YOU think that shit was sent to the FBI? NO. I will re iterate—it’s these misdemeanor people who say ohh well I get approved buying a gun but I’m stuck in FBI backlog that keeps us waiting. They’re the problem!

      Only the Form 1 can be Efiled. You would have to build the can.

    Ten months to the day since I purchased this item.
    The day I purchased it I was told 5 months.
    After 5 months I called the LGS to see if he lost my phone number. I was told it was 6-8 months.
    After 8 months I called the folks at NFA and was told I was “pending” and they were averaging 9 months.
    After 9 months I overheard discussions about 10-12 months.
    It seems I called about a week ago and was told it was “pending”. No further info.
    Then today, like a bolt out of the blue, I get the call.
    This whole process was certainly a lesson in how to manage disappointment.

    My Frustration is growing. I just called the NFA Branch to check my status and they told me that my form 4 is still pending. The check was cashed 5/21/18 and I noticed that they are already approving stamps submitted after mine, some as far head as mid-June. This inconsistency just shows how flawed that this constitutional infringing system is. Sorry just needed to rant a little.

      Landen,

      Mine was chased 26MAR18 with only me on the trust. I wrote my congressman today. If you have a decent one, I’d recommend doing the same.

        Thanks for the advice, James. My congressman Will Hurd who I thought was a pro-gun rights kind of guy was one of the 8 backstabbing Republicans who voted for the Bipartisan HR 8 universal background check bill. So I don’t know how helpful he will be but I will try anyway. Ooch, March 26, 2018, now I don’t feel so bad hopefully you can get some help from your Rep, Good luck and thanks, James.

        Pending since Dec. 2nd. on a Form 1 Efile. Wrote two Senators and one Congressman. Only one Senator even bothered to reply and did so quickly. Filled out the usual form and it’s been five days so I don’t expect much. 110 days so far. No explanation for a simple 1RP Trust. Yet as recent as yesterday I passed a NIC’s check in less than five minutes????

      Just when you think you’ve been waiting long…there’s going to be someone who has been waiting longer.

      Other approval dates are meaningless. Each examiner approves at their own rate nd it is dependent on how many actually take the time to post the details of the approval. Every time I see dates close to my pending date, five come out weeks behind it.

    So the day has finally come! After purchasing a suppressor on November 15 2017, I went yesterday to pick up my tax stamp and suppressor from the dealer. A total of 490 days between purchase date and receive date. I was wondering if it would ever happen. Good luck to all of you!

      That is very very discouraging. 490 days is not a reasonable time to have to wait. Do you have any idea what held it up for so long? I have a Dead Air Mask can that has been holding since 9/28/28 and was hoping to have it by hunting season this year which is early October. That may be out of the question if my wait is as long as yours. Congrats and enjoy!

    Just double checked with ATF, received on March 13th 2018, still pending. No further information is available. This is my second can and the first went much quicker. I would think if there was anything in my background check they would have held off on the first one.
