    I’m 130 days in. I submitted my Form 4 for my KAC Mark 23 suppressor June 6th and it was received June 17th. I sure hope I’m one of those lucky guys who gets a speedy approval.

      Believe me, you should call just to check if it is in “Pending” status. I waited 7 months to check and the LGS didn’t even submit my Form 4 and lost my checks. Re-submitted my checks and forms, myself. Result, 2 years later received my SBR and Hybrid 46!!!

    Purchased 2 Suppressors on 12/10/18. Individual Form 4.
    Called today and the gentlemen at the ATF told me both were approved today, 10/30/19. What luck! This is only the 2nd time I’ve called since purchasing.
    Days to Approval: 324
    Now it’s just the wait for the Dealer to receive the paperwork. It’s already unbearable. Lol
    Best of luck to all others that have been waiting for as long or longer than I have!

    Approval 10/21/2019 (261 days)

    Waiting for dealer to receive paperwork.

    Probably wait for the eform 4 to come back before I get another suppressor.

    Free Silencerco Octane 45 from the promotion mid 2018…

    Submitted via Silencershop kiosk 06/21/19
    Notification of Tax Stamp Cashed 07/08/19

    After reading how fast they were getting approved here, I called the NFA today (10/31/19) and found out I was approved on 9/5/19… I quickly called my local shop and they confirmed that they haven’t received the stamp yet, so coming up on almost 2 months for NFA > Local Shop, almost as long as Cash > Approval (which is a very strange sentence to type out…)

    It’s so cold out here I won’t be using it anytime soon anyway, so I’ll give it another week before I call back.

      This is what I do not understand. You get your silencer in 3 months, I am still holding at 420 days.This makes no sense at all. I’m glad you got yours so quickly. I already have 1 suppressor from 2018, so what makes it so difficult to approve another one. It’s like throwing darts at a dart board. You got me on the selection process on which applications to take and approve. I think the feds are using a physic to select applications.

        I feel your pain, the new system went live in June. My check was cashed May 22. I missed the new system by 9 days, so looks like a year of waiting for me!

        It sucks, I know. I waited 240 for my last one and as soon as I saw that the new system was working quickly, I put in for another. However, if you’re > 400 days, I surmise that you’re either caught in FBI black hole (received an FBI delay on the BG check process) or something went wrong with your application. You should call and try to work your way to your examiner.

          I did not know that a new system was in place in June of 2019. That explains a lot of things. I agree that they will leave those in the old system, and anything new will go into the new system. As you said, why re-key in all of that old data. I just have to let things play out. I have called 3 times and Feds say they are waiting to assign it to an examiner. Which means wait your turn in line. LOL!

    From looking at the replies, I have surmised, that all new applications, sent in after the new system went into effect in June, went into the new system. And, all previous applications stayed in the old system. I can’t
    imagine them going back and re-entering the old data. The new system is just a lot faster. This is only happening with the individual forms and not the trusts, which are over a year now.

      Form 4 Individual e-filed check cashed 6/10/19
      NFA tracker says about 168 days for approval.
      I got impatient and called the ATF and they are telling me APRIL??? Anyone else get that information from the lady on the phone?

      I called twice so far.. Lady I spoke with the first time just said everything was completed / accurate and to check back every 4 weeks until I receive approval… Never gave me an expected date.. nada.. If you submitted in June.. You’ve got a good chance of have the fast track approval like a ton others are receiving though… GL

      FYI, there’s no such thing as a form 4 e-file at this time. If you submitted via Silencershop, it’s still a paper form. Since your submission was in June, but the majority of the fast-track approvals are now showing up as late July to mid-August, your form is probably in the old system and you’ll be looking at another 3-4ish months. Sorry for the bad news. The lady on the phone also hears your question all day every day, fyi. So she’s not going to give you actual information. Rather, she’s likely going to tell you some outlandish date so you’ll stop calling and wasting her time…

    I am pushing 425 days. Called 3 times. Hasn’t been assigned to an examiner.I am guessing that I am caught between the old system and the new system. So who knows, the Feds get to it, when they get to it. I just hope I am not like that poor dude that was out 604 days.He did get his approved, but 604 days, you got to be kidding.

    Form 4 Individual for Dead Air Armament/Dead Air Sandman L.
    Submitted December 14, 2018
    Check Cashed January 28, 2019 (Took long probably due to the 2019 Gov. Shutdown)
    Approved November 4, 2019
    Today is November 6 and, of course, I’m awaiting my dealer to receiver the Tax Stamp.
    Total time between Check Cashed and Approval Date: 281

    I’m hearing now that people are filing and receiving approvals as quick as three months. Is this true? If so, I’ll probably buy another suppressor while the turnarounds are so quick.

      I’m pretty sure its true. I bought a suppressor before I saw all these quick times pop up so I didnt even know about it till my had already started. Then I sawthese approvals with check cashed dates around mine so I called in and found out it got approved. I gotta check my math but I believe it took 70 days to get approved. I think anything after June will be fast tracked and anything before that is gonna be normal wait times or worse. Cant wait till 2 months is the norm and we start hearing about these lucky bastards that get theirs approved in a couple weeks.

    Finally got my stamp. 416 days. 3 calls and Stamp in hand. If the new system is this quick, then it shouldn’t be this bad next time around.
