      I’m now around 160 days, called and it’s still pending. Nice lady said the covid19 issues aren’t affecting their work or the wait times and said I should call every 4 weeks or so to check on it. Still waiting

        Am I reading that right? Less than 2 weeks from day submitted to day you had stamp in hand?

          I’m guessing since approved and stamp in hand is blank that you are reading it wrong.

      I’m at four weeks today since my f4 individual was submitted, and my card still hasn’t been charged yet. My dealer also has not received anything back. Has anyone had experience with it taking this long just for ATF to process the payment?

          Was the rest of the process average wait times? Or considerably longer or shorter?

            I don’t know, I’m still at the check cashed stage for 30 days so far. We’ll see in six months.

      22LR Suppressor/ AAC Element 2: 4/23/2019 – Purchased Supressor (SilencerShop)

      5/08/2019 – ATF cashed check

      12/30/2019 – called ATF and received a status of “currently pending”

      03/20/2020 – called ATF and was told “this one is still currently pending”

      4/26/2020 – Received a call from my dealer saying that my Stamp was in.

      When I got to the dealer I noticed that the ATF signed my Tax Stamp as of 3/26/2020, but they didn’t mail it until 4/24/2020. That means it sat on someone’s desk for a month before mailing the document. It took 1 year from start to finish. Unbelievable.

      I am waiting for the lazy POS ATF to put the approval in the mail. It shouldn’t take 45 days to get there lazy ass to the mail box.

        I’m in a similar situation. I have an approval on 3/24/2020 still has not shown up at my dealer yet. I’m seeing many similar posts like this. I wonder if its all the same examiner out on leave or something. This is out of control, they say after 30 days you can file for a certified copy. I suppose i’ll give it until the 45 day mark myself before proceeding that way.

      Just got off the phone with the ATF, they would not allow me to talk to person who approved my form 4. I asked why it is taking so long to get the approval and he said the post office is behind due to Covid-19. I doubt it takes the USPS 45 days to deliver a letter 160 miles. Typical federal bureaucracy worker passing the buck.

        The usps are definitely behind and the absolute worst out of carriers im my area but regardless 45 days is unacceptable. I think they have 30 days to drop in outgoing mail. You’d think for 200 dollars they could return the favor and send first class with tracking wtf

      Cashed: 2/11/2020
      Approved: 4/25/2020
      Stamp: TBD

      Called ATF today and was told up to 30 days for dealer to receive the stamp. Optimistic but seems like this phase can go one of two ways….

        When I called on 4/28/20 and was told that I was approved on 4/3/20, the guy I spoke with told me the same thing in that “it can take up to 30 days” for the dealer to receive it. Well I’m almost at 30 now and still no stamp.

      Does anyone have any insight in to how form 4’s get assigned to an inspector? I see people getting approved in 90-120 days but others like myself at 180-300 days without even being assigned to an inspector.

        I dont think it’s really about how they’re getting assign. Its that they changed their system some point middle of last year and after that system was implemented the processing time for new form 4s has significantly decreased. I have a can I purchased last May that still hasnt been approved, but the one I purchased at the end of September I received 2 months ago.

      I’m curious to see if all these approvals being delayed in the mail are all from the same inspector or not. Good luck to everyone.

        I just had another thought, maybe they are restricting which states they are mailing to based on gov orders keeping shops closed. Could be the case here in MI?

      ATF is not mailing approved tax stamps on time. 45 days after approval, 15 days after confirmed certified copy request with an official reply/response. Somethings up and they’re not doing their job. This is theft.

      I finally have an update with good news. Approved march 20th, stamp mailed out april 30th, arrived at my dealer today 5/5. Ridiculous. Funn6 story is, i called the atf on 4/28.. 2 days before they finally mailed it out. Dont wait! Call aftet 30 days and itll hopefully jump start them to get off their asses and do sosomething productive like mailing out our documents!
