Wanted to give an update on my NFA Items that have been in NFA jail for awhile in case anyone was thinking of going quiet. I had 2 suppressors with a Form 4 Trust, mailed in. I called to check last week and found out both were approved on 10/23.

375 Days. :evil: :eek: :sad:

While I was doing backflips in my car the nice gal told me they are averaging 370-400 days.

Wow that seems high. Silencershop still shows just over 300 days and really a bit less depending on how long it takes for your check to get cashed. Was this your first one and how was it submitted? (LGS, online dealer, etc.)

https://www.silencershop.com/atf-wait-times

Oh, and more importantly, what did you get?

The Online NFA tracker that Silencershop links to is not updated or maintained--https://www.nfatracker.com

1) My local FFL submitted the forms & stored my suppressors in his safe.
2) Check was cashed 5 days after receiving the forms. Sent certified mail / signature required to track the progress.
3) These were my first NFA / suppressor Items.
4) SilencerCo Sparrow (.22) and Saker (5.56)

Squirrel population from my back deck about to decline =))

Interesting. Well, the Form4 Trust time on your link is still only around 325 days. I"m just being wishful. My 9mm is in jail but I have a .30 and a .22. The .22 suppressor is just laughably quiet and my 300BLK shooting subsonics suppressed makes me giggle every time.

my last can was approved back in march or so, was around 10 month wait using kiosk. At the moment im like 4 months in waiting on SBR approval on 2 AK receivers. Probably going to do another 9mm can soon that will permanently live on my Scorpion.

I failed to mention, the gal also told me the Gov’t shut down at the beginning of 2019 set them back 90-120 days.

You guys that have been through this already, after your first Tax Stamp does the wait time improve?

You would think once your in the system with a stamp or two already they would fast track any new apps from you but no it doesnt change the wait time.

I only have 2 stamps but they were on the same Form 4. So, I'm still waiting out my second filing. I don't expect it to be any faster as Squid states.

My suspicion is that they are hoping for a Dem president and holding them up. Or a crush of people are applying before a possible Dem president exec orders them out of existence.

The wait has been pretty long for a while now I believe. I think it was more that when manufacturers started cranking out cans that were intriguing and affordable and people learned more about the process and legalities that there was a drastic increase in filings that the ATF wasn't prepared for. I do agree though that they don't really seem to be in a rush to staff accordingly to get the stamps out in a timely manner.

Once you start shooting with a can you're not going to want to shoot with out.
