Just submitted mine to ATF and check was cashed yesterday.  Wondering if we're still at 6 months?

Thanks,

Yes, still approx. 6 months +/- a couple weeks
Link Posted: 5/30/2013 6:52:15 AM EDT
Don't even check to see if it went pending for at least 2 months.  
Link Posted: 5/30/2013 8:10:51 AM EDT
Thanks.

Wasn't there a group therapy thread a while back?

Although I dropped and broke my crystal ball I'd be flabbergasted if wait times haven't increased. I submitted my Form 4 on March 12th this year and I went pending on May 13th. I'm hoping to get it by Christmas by the latest, and if the stars align, hopefully sometime in October.

I've been pending since the end of Feb. They told me to expect every bit of 6 months.

Just picked up my Spectre II today.      Sent off F4 and $200 on Nov 1.     Was approved May 3 and the stamp was mailed 5/31/13.

So it took 7 months and a few days.
Link Posted: 6/5/2013 9:18:06 AM EDT
Yeah unless you're FL or TX or one of the faster examiner, you're going to wait 7 months or more, the faster examiners are doing 5 months and a week or 2.
Link Posted: 6/6/2013 6:00:21 AM EDT
I've heard 7-8 months from every class 3 dealer I know.

I am at 4 months today from my last check being cashed.

How are you guys checking to see if your check got cashed? Did you send in a personal check? I'm waiting on my first one and my Class 3 said I needed a certified check or a M.O. so I went with the usps money order....
Link Posted: 6/6/2013 11:05:57 AM EDT
You can send a personal check.  I used a Money gram MO, and they have a 800# to check on the status of it.  I would THINK USPS would have something similar, expect being a government entity they may charge a fee.

I just go on the internet and look at my bank account and see when my personal check was cashed:

01/24/2013 DIRECTDEBIT ATF NFA 0161 PAYMENT $200.00 - thats what it looks like

Also I sent this in on a Monday, 1/21/2013, you'd think they were on their way to buy a fix of crack as fast as they cash the checks

I'm surprised. I saw TX has 3 different examiners approving applications. I see that TX is working in early Jan pending while everyone else is just now in beginning of December,

My form 1 ran slightly over 6 mths, put another in around March, im hoping that I can pick it up in Oct

Yea this is my first can / nfa item and the wait is killing me. I don't know what's worse waiting on this one or knowing it will probably be Christmas before I can buy a 5.56 can to get rolling through the wait

6 months from your pending date, not from when you submitted your paperwork.
Link Posted: 6/13/2013 3:47:25 PM EDT
How do you check if your pending or approved? I purchased a suppressor my check was cashed 2/21...

Got mine back today took 178 days from mailbox to mailbox.

If your check was cashed 2/21, for the tax stamp. Your pending date should been either late March or early April. Now lets say as an example that your pending date was April 11, then six months from that your stamp on a form 4 would be at the dealer in October.
Link Posted: 6/13/2013 8:28:29 PM EDT
When I checked on mine which was cashed 4/16 it had not gone pending yet. I was told probably 2 more weeks and that current wait times were expected to be 9 months after pending date. No, that is not a typo, NINE months.

Have your serial number ready and call 304-616-4500. Ask them what your status is.
BTW
Sent Janurary 17th
Check cashed Jan 24th
Pending February 12th
ETA per BATFE....Sometime in August

I mailed my paperwork Dec 6th
Check cashed Dec 13th
Picked up the suppressor on May 22nd

Is there anything else in the world that we buy, and have to wait 6 months for?

A liberty safe, in my case.

Maybe a Larue OBR. From what I've seen there's a long wait for them.

Called NFA today for something and thought I'd ask about my Spectre II that went pending on 2/13 and was told that wait times were now estimated/extended to 9 months. Also found out that a Form 4 I submitted mid-April has not gone pending yet.
Link Posted: 6/19/2013 9:41:59 AM EDT
Is that for all examiners? Or just your states?

Unfortunately I didn't ask about that. I just inquired as to whether or not the 6 month timeframe was still in effect.

LaRue Predat OBR.  I've been waiting almost 1 year now.

Send it and forget it is the norm these days.
Link Posted: 6/20/2013 6:54:25 AM EDT
this is absolutely epic-ly rediculous. it seems that we need more people working there. I easily know 10 people that can't find jobs....hire them.





so mad right now. so mad. I went pending march 12th, so that means DECEMBER now?! this is a crock of shit. I'm sorry....
Link Posted: 6/20/2013 7:48:55 AM EDT
Mine that was cashed on 4/16 finally went pending 6/19. Was told to expect my stamp sometime in March 2014.
Link Posted: 6/25/2013 9:10:01 AM EDT
Just called on mine, check cashed late April. No pending date as of yet, and I was told to expect at least 9 months from pending date now. What a buzzkill.

You should be pending soon. Then the long wait begins......

Just got one back and it took exactly 8 months all said and done. Sent in on October 20th and I took it home June 20th. 6 month waits are a thing of the past for the most part :(
Link Posted: 7/2/2013 12:40:14 AM EDT
Same here. 8 months. Early November for me and I got it back last week. Which by the way... After taking it to the range this weekend it made the wait completely worth it. It was downright awesome. So hopefully that gives everyone waiting some hope and there is always a light at the end of the tunnel... It's just really far away right now. Ha

I just put another one in last week so I'm fearing I won't see it complete until march or April 2014. Pretty pathetic but based on the growing time curve it looks like its up from 8 to 10 months now total elapsed time.

Does anyone think this is just because of a surge in purchases? In my opinion this has to be their way of slowing down the process to discourage people to do it and also make us wait as long as possible to receive it. Maybe I'm wrong and suppressor purchases really are up 10 fold but it just seems overly excessive with the wait times now a days especially when you factor in the political climate around guns and "assault weapons" in general.

Not to put on the tin foil hat but with the stories coming out seemingly each month now about government targeting and going after people do I really want to be in an ATF database. Too late now but it def. concerns me.

Just my thoughts on the matter.

I went pending on four Form 4s 20FEB. All four went into error/problem status on 25JUN.
Link Posted: 7/10/2013 12:28:26 PM EDT
Just called and got my pending date. My can went pending July 2, check cashed late April, and I was told to expect my can in late April now. So we are now talking a year turn around from check cashed to can in hand. That's freaking insane.
Link Posted: 7/10/2013 6:07:24 PM EDT
Early January to mail it in, stamp arrived Monday
Link Posted: 7/11/2013 5:59:58 AM EDT
Just called on a F4 that checked cleared 06/03. Still not in the system and was told its taking around 8 weeks for them to show up.

Really?  I heard Sara Jones was gone and wait times were going up in TX?
