I picked up my YHM R9 today (3/7) from my dealer. As I said earlier it was approved on Tuesday, 2/9, the envelope was postmarked Monday, 3/1 and it arrived at my dealer’s on Thursday, 3/4. So it sat for approximately 20 days at the ATF and then took 4 days from postmark to arrival at my dealers. That illustrates, for what it’s worth at least in my…[Read more]
My dealer just emailed me that my approved Form 4 just arrived, so that makes a grand total of 170 or 5 months, 17 days from the check being cashed to the approved Form 4 arriving at my dealers. It was approved on Feb. 9th, so that makes approximately 24 days in transit from the date of approval to receipt by my dealer. 3-1/2 weeks longer than my…[Read more]
My Form 4 application & $200 check for a YHM R9 were sent via Silencer Shop to the BATFE WV processing center on Aug. 27th, with the check being cashed on September 16th. I called the BATFE WV processing center today and was told that the Form 4 was approved on Feb. 9th and that my dealer could expect the approved, stamped Form 4 within 60, yes…[Read more]

I received an email from my dealer informing me that my approved Individual Form 4 for a Yankee Hill Machine Turbo T2 5.56 suppressor arrived today & I will be picking it up this coming Sunday.
This is the fastest Individual Form 4 approval that I’ve ever experienced. ATF cashed my check on July 17, 2020, so it took a total of 126 days (4 months,…[Read more]
Typical SNAFU with NFA Tracker. The same thing happened several months ago and then “magically” fixed itself. NFA Tracker is now owned and operated by Silencer Shop, so that should tell you everything you neeed to know about why it’s so f**ked up!!!
Update on my post above:
All 3 Form 4’s completed by my dealer (via SS Kiosk system) on 4/17/2020.
$600 check cashed by ATF 4/24/2020.
All 3 Form 4’s approved on 9/30/2020 by Examiner E. (Elizabeth) Ann Feltner(?)
3 Individual Form 4’s postmarked 10/9/2020.
3 individual Form 4’s arrive at my dealer 10/16/2020.
Picked up my 3 cans 10/18/2020.
That’s way too complicated for NFATracker/Silencer Shop to do & get right. They’re struggling with their own sales business right now, so please don’t make any suggestions that are way over their head to even contimplate…
Silencer Shop took over this site some time ago and it has steadily gone down hill ever since, just like SS’s steadily declining customer service & major issues with their Form 1 business. With the eFile Form 1’s available, there is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON not to submit them yourself. Get a fingerpriunt stamp pad & card holder from Amazon & FREE…[Read more]
Batch submitted 3 individual Form 4’s for suppressors with check cashed on 4/24/2020. On 10/17/2020 I received an email from my dealer said that he had the 3 approved Form 4’s in hand. That’s 175 days (25 weeks) from the check being cashed by the ATF to the USPS delivering the approved Form 4’s. I pick up my cans tomorrow morning (10/18/2020).…[Read more]
…that I can come pick up my 3 approved, batch filed, individual Form 4’s for suppressors with a check cashed date of April 24, 2020.
That makes a grand total of 175 days or 25 weeks from the date the check was cashed to my dealer receiving the approved Form 4’s in his hands. That includes the time for the USPS to deliver said forms from ATF WV…[Read more]
Of course you got no notification for the reason for the long approval process so I’ve got to think that you’ve got a name similar to someone else with a spotty criminal record. You might want to look into getting a UPIN so in the future the FBI doesn’t get you confused with someone with the same name…
Congrats!!! 2 week turn around is an excellent amount of time to get approved in. You’ve also got a squeaky clean background, nobody else with the same name & a record, etc., things that trip up other applications & cause a delay for the Fibbies to have to do a more indepth investigation.
Now, start on the next one!!!
The efile Form 1 is so easy to do that there is really no reason to have it done by anyone else, especially with the latest round of “problems” with Silencer Shop submittals. Yes, I’ve heard all the excuses from individuals who used the Silencer Shop flawed Form 1 process: “It’s so easy for me”, “I can’t do my own fingerprints”, “I don’t have time…[Read more]
Correct about the shipping & mailing delays. Approved Form 1 & 4’s are collected once or twice a month from the home bound examiners, taken to ATF WV HQ, placed in Gub’ment “FOR OFFICIAL ISE ONLY” envelopes, run through the Gub’ment Use Only postage meter & then at some point taken to the Post Office. The lengthy delay is in the processing to get…[Read more]
No, a UPIN is a “special” number that you have to seperately apply for. It is used to differentiate between individuals with the same name, etc. It is a “unique designator” that is entered on future applications that “supposedly” prevents delays in the review process because of individuals having the same name and possible criminal background…[Read more]
