      They must be swamped. Going on 2+ weeks after the form4 was submitted and no check cashed yet.

        Usually around a month for the check to be cashed…

        Good luck my friend!! My form 4 trust is now in it’s 14th month waiting for approval. Checked on it today and the agent said it is still “PENDING” and the final reviewer has not got it yet. Another friend of mine is going on 15 months with the same explaination.

      Going on day 386, check cashed August 30th 2018. Called yesterday and they said still pending. I asked if it had been sent to an examiner yet and he said yes it has and then said shouldn’t be too much longer. Does anyone know how long it takes from the time an examiner begins reviewing to when it is approved/hopefully approved haha?

        Mine is 610 days as of today (1/20/18 check cash date).

        Just got an email from my FFL that my form was approved and stamp is in hand.

        I’ll do the transfer on Monday.

        Hopefully no one else has to go that long.

        Received another suppressor earlier this month from an October 1 cash date, about 11 months, so it’s just a random thing.

        I have one more in the pipeline from another early October ’18 cash date, so hopefully that will arrive before the end of October…hopefully.

      Form 3: Disposed to Dealer On 5/9/2018

      Form 4: Tax Stamp Cashed on 4/19/2018

      Examiner said that: “I can’t give specific details, but one of the RP’s has a delayed background currently. I am awaiting FBI to clear before I can finalize the application. I do not have any ETA’s.”

      This has never come up in the past with previous Form 4s. It has been in limbo status at the FBI for more than 3 months. An NCIC check does not take 3 months to run.

      Never mind. I found it and called. Check cashed on 10-02-2018, approved 09-13-2019.
      They have up to 30 days to send stamp to the dealer.

      How to Check Status on Your NFA Transfer

      The ATF NFA Branch allows individuals to check the status on their own transfers. Most commonly this is an ATF Form 4 for an item you have purchased from a dealer such as a silencer, short barreled rifle, short barreled shotgun, or machine gun. The process is quick and easy…

      How does the Silencershop tracking work? Do they update your account status when it’s approved? Thanks.

        Just to clarify; you got a 25 day turnaround on a trust or, did you mean 2018 for cash date? Am I missing something?
        If you got that fast turnaround, great deal for you.
        That is one hell of a first post if true.

          No that was mobile auto correct. My two Form-4s where submitted 09/05/2018… So 390 day turn around. Just got the call this Saturday that the stamps where received by the dealer so at least the stamp mailing times have improved.

      Ordered my first suppressor a Recce5 last November from Silencer Shop

      Purchased recce 5 and single shot trust 11/19/2018

      FingerPrints at kiosk 11/20/18

      Papers complete and submitted 11/25/18

      ATF cashed check 12/11/18(22days)

      Called NFA 10/7/19 still pending not with an examiner yet. (321 days)

      I see some of the form 4 individuals are getting some fast approvals.

      Single shot trust
      Obsidian 9
      Submitted 1/23/2019
      Check cashed 2/13/2019

      Going on 246 days, any recommendations on calling, sounds like it doesn’t necessarily help.

      With all of tha very fast turn arounds I am almost wishing I had stayed with the form 4 individual for my second can instead of switching to a trust.
      If I had known this would happen I might have done it as an individual and then paid again later once it is in my hands to transfer it to a trust.

      Has contacting their senator helped anyone? Just sent a letter to mine. I feel like this is total BS to have wait so long to be approved.

      I have been waiting 363 days now for one of my cans, 275 on another both for a Trust with 2 members. I reached out to my local congressman, Dan Crenshaw, to help with the process about a week ago and I wanted to share some of that info i was not aware of. My FBI background check has been done since April. It has just been sitting somewhere at the ATF to conduct the exact same background check. The FBI responded to their request almost immediately. The ATF took a over week to respond and then sent a poorly put together document (crazy grammatical errors) for me to sign so that my congressman could reach out in my behalf. Long story short, I have been waiting for someone at the ATF to find my documents in some “pile” somewhere since April pretty much. I am super impressed with how Mr. Crenshaws team has been so active on this for me and i do think something is about to shake out.

        That’s good that he was able help. Just think if it took this long to be able to exercise your right to free speech then maybe the left would see this as an infringement.

          You only have the right to free speech if you tow the anti 2nd line and anchor in the eyes/ears of the left.

          If mine gets that long, I know ill just have to continue to wait as I have no sane elected officials in my state to turn to; WA.

        Nathan that is great to hear the Ben Crenshaw got involved and helped you out. Very Nice. I am going on 408 days and I have called the ATF twice and they keep telling me its pending. As one of our members said, you can buy a gun in 20 minutes, but it takes over a year to get a suppressor. Makes no sense. And you have to go through all this wait and delay every time you want a suppressor. Makes zero sense or logic on why it takes so long. Who knows.I am getting my Houston congressman involved too.
