    Form x4
    Check cashed 01/24/20
    Approved 12/24/20. (Hope)
    Question. I am friends with my congressman. He was told that examiners are stated based and my state has only two. Surely this can’t be correct. My state is Missouri.

      From what I understand, examiners used to be state-based, but this is no longer the case.

    I call every month, today I’m 4 months in from check cashing. Today they said pending again and for the third time said the wait is 10 months. I got my permit to actually carry a gun concealed quicker than this.

      4 months in? and you’re calling every month?

      It’s very possible that you are in for a much longer wait. I hit 11 months today, and that isn’t terribly uncommon.

    Kinda mind blowin how there are guys that have been waiting for ever for a tax stamp, yet seems like there’s a group that’s getting them rather quickly. Am I missing something? ? What gives? ?

      It’s completely random on where your form gets put in the stack anymore. It used to be assigned state-by-state, and each state had a specific number of agents according to demand. That is no longer the case. Just a bunch of agents pulling forms randomly from a pile. I purchased 2 suppressors in September of 2019 from silencershop. One got lost/stolen in the mail on the way to my dealer, so that had to be resubmitted in October. However, the one submitted in September 2019 just got approved Saturday. So here’s hoping the other one isn’t too far behind.

        You’d think there would be some kind of logic behind it though. Guess not

          If you’re assigning the entire process to randomness, my suggestion is to look at the scatter plot to get a better, more real assessment of the process. It’s not ideal, but it’s certainly not pure randomness.

    While waiting on my Thunderbeast to get out of jail I decided I needed a new .22 LR semi auto. I also decided that I wanted to suppress said .22. I have decided to let the government hold another $200 dollars for an Axiom direct thread suppressor, so the beat goes on………….

    I’m concerned that this CoronaVirus crap is going to bring approvals to a screeching halt. I have a 22 Suppressor in Jail since the check was cashed back on May 8th 2019… I called back in January and received a “currently pending” status. Here we are quickly approaching 11 months and now… worldwide pandemic. Jeez.

      Shoot.. Good Luck! Check cashed 2/25/19 for me.. STILL pending (3/2/20). Figured I’d call back in April and see what the hecks going on.

      Form 4 (Single Shot): Tax Stamp Cashed on 6/7/2019, Form 3: Disposed to Dealer On 8/14/2019. Almost to 10 month mark since check cashed, but I’m not holding my breath for the stamp to show up at my dealer any time soon, due to the corona virus. I haven’t called, ATF, because I’m sure they are being flooded with calls, and don’t want to piss them off.

      That’s a trust, not individual.

      I’d bet you’ll have you can within a month. The approval times seems to be getting significantly shorter. As you can see the Sandman-L I purchased 3 months earlier still hasn’t come in, yet several people have received stamps for cans purchased this year. I just placed an order for another suppressor in hopes that the short approval trend continues.

        Approved 3/28/20, 213 days. Here’s hoping nothing shuts down in the time it takes them to mail it to my dealer!

    Same thing I got, have you picked up one of the LAMs that don’t require an adapter yet? What date code is your Mark 23?
