Paperwork sent this morning to notify ATF that NFA will leave the state for a shooting school.

How long before I get the "OK" stamp back?

Here is a running thread with NFA approval times. Work your way back for historical timeframes.

ATF continued..., SilencerTalk forum

To me, they are taking a couple weeks longer. Back in April I had a very quick turnaround on a trust form 4.

From mailing to approval = 12 days
From mailing to pickup = 16 days

04/03 form 4 sent priority USPS; form 4 + personal check + declaration of trust
04/06 check cashed
04/16 approved
04/19 form 4 arrives at dealer
04/20 NFA item picked up

Last SBR trust form 4 took awhile.

6/08 f4 sent
6/11 check cashed
7/03 pending
7/11 approved

After it's approved, that means it's in the mail in a day or so and your class III should get it in several days then you pick it up.

From the forums they are scrutinizing trusts, so a non trust NFA transfer may actually be quicker.

Approval on 5320.20s usually take about two weeks door to door. FWIW, I fax mine in to 304-616-4501 for quicker service, front side only, and two copies. I always list the dates when I'm visiting for a full year... just in case you decide to return. They're always approved as described.

01 September, 2007 - 01 September, 2008

Fax it to them instead. SAME DAY turn around by fax every time I've done it. Then they mail it to you as well.
