    My Form 4 application for a Surefire SOCOM762-RC2 was “still pending on 11/21/2019 per Dafney @ BATFE when I called inquiring about the status.

    Today I get a text from my dealer saying that the approved application & stamp for the SOCOM arrived yesterday & that I could pick it up.

    So, here are the numbers:
    Application sent: 2/12/2019 – Day 0
    Check cashed: 3/8/2019 – Day 24
    Form 4 approved: 12/2/2019 – Day 293
    Can in hand: 12/15/2019 – Day 306

    A wait time of 83.84% of 2019

    Or, in plain english, 10 months, 3 days which beat the hell out of my previous approval of 10 months, 17 days!!!

    I think I’m done until BATFE can do Form 4 approvals in the same amount of time as Efiled Form 1’s It’s ridiculous to have to pay up front & then wait almost a year (or more) for the item.

    My collection to date is:

    I think I’m done with purchasing suppressors until BATFE can do Form 4 approvals in the same amount of time as Efiled Form 1’s. It’s ridiculous to have to pay up front & then wait almost a year (or more) for the item to be approved. And NO, I DO NOT WANT TO BUILD MY OWN on a Form 1. I’ve got better things to do.

    To date I’ve acquired the following:
    Gemtech Outback II .22
    Sig SRD9 9mm
    Sig SRD556 5.56mm
    Yankee Hill Machine Phantom LT .30 Cal.
    Surefire SOCOM 762-RC2 .30 Cal.

    Good luck to everyone still waiting to get approved. This to shall pass…
