I’ve already explained to you, there are certain circumstances where calling to confirm you’ve been approved can lessen your overall wait time. Sometimes, a form will get approved and the form gets hung up somewhere between the reviewer’s desk and the mail room. This has happened to me on one occasion, and I’ve heard of it happening to others as…[Read more]
You’ve obviously never called (after waiting for two months after the “trend” period) and found out your form was approved 6 weeks ago but never got mailed out…
I call every 2 days once I see that someone has been approved with a submittal date after mine. I never want to have to wait 59 days after approval to receive my stamp again.
Keep bugging the ATF. My Form 4 took over six weeks from approval to stamp-in-hand. After 30 days, you can request a certified copy of your stamp; which I did. My original stamp showed up while I was waiting for my certified copy…postmarked almost a week AFTER I had requested the copy.
It could be sitting on somebody’s desk at the ATF still.

Similar thing happened to me. I called the ATF to ask about my certified copy two weeks after I requested it. They said it was mailed to days prior. While waiting for it to show up, my original found its way to my to my SOT’s mailbox. A week after that, my certified copy arrived.
Funny thing is, the original stamp was postmarked three days…[Read more]
Form 4 approved on 8/12.
Sent request for certified copy on 9/11 (30 days later).
Called ATF on 9/21 to ask for update. Was told my certified copy was mailed on 9/19.
Original Form 4 arrives at dealer today on 9/25.
The kicker; the envelope was postmarked for 9/22!
Now, I’m curious of my certified copy will ever show up :).

Hi Mike. Have you received your certified copy yet? Thanks.
I called the atf yesterday to ask how to request a certified copy. They directed me to write a letter and email it to them.
I was told my certified copy would take approximately three to five weeks! Hopefully the original stamp shows up some time before then…
Tomorrow marks 30 days since I was approved. I’m going to be contacting the ATF to request a certified copy. Have any of you been through this process? How long did it take to get your copy? Thanks!

Do you have an update on this? Did the ATF issue you a certified copy?
I might be in a similar boat. My Form 4 was approved August 12 and has not shown up at my SOT (24 days). I’m curious what the process is like for getting a certified copy from the ATF after 30 days.
The November 12th approval is mine. Called the ATF earlier today and they said it was approved on Saturday, the 12th. Looks like they’re still at least working Saturdays to get forms through.
9 months to the day from check cashed to approval. It’s going to be a looooong week waiting for that call from the FFL.
