ATF is currently advising up to 45 days.
If it has been longer than 45 days then I'd call ATF and ask them to start the process to mail you a certified copy.
In the mean time if the stamp shows up, its not going to hurt anything to have a certified copy on the way.
I assume you've called your dealer and confirmed they're not sitting on it.
Tomorrow I will call the ATF as suggested. I contacted the dealer as soon as I checked the status and discovered the approval date. They said as much as 8-10 weeks. Trying to be patient but it seems that most, if not all, that are chiming in here have been substantially faster than that. I will stop by the dealer on my way home tomorrow and inquire in person.

    2 cans, tax stamps cashed 4/20 and 4/30. Just picked up both cans from the dealer today, 8/15. About 3 ½ months from date of tax stamp cash
    I had one chased 4/30 as well. This gives me hope.

    A little follow up.

    Stopped at the dealer and waited 45 minutes to enter the store, Covid metering crap, whereupon I inquired about the excessively long duration from approval to stamp in hand. They checked for the paperwork and they indeed had received it. Finally out of jail!

    The breakdown was ultimately on my side. I have made multiple purchases at this location over the years and they have my info on file. However, over the years, my phone number had changed but had not been updated in their system. Failed phone calls and an email attempt to contact me to an account that my wife checks more often than I accounted for the delay.

    Everyone make sure that your info is current!

    It's taking up to 45 days for dealers to receive the stamps. I live within 60 miles of the NFA branch and it took 2.5 weeks to get the stamps. Just a heads up.

    Seems like the "recent" forms are getting pushed out in 5-6 months where as forms from late 19' are still jammed up. When I picture the reviewing office, all I can picture is something which looks like a remake of Animal House...

    While shopping suppressors in Houston, Tx today I happened upon young man receiving his suppressor from his dealer. After congratulating him I ask when he submitted his papers and he said mid February, 2020. Dealer said wait time was getting shorter and shorter for him.

    I tried getting them to apply the approvals to the other forms I had that were pending. That was a no go. I have two left and another on backorder. If I see the other two by Thanksgiving I'll be impressed. lol.

    Just called the ATF and was told that my TBAC Ultra 9CB was approved earlier today:

    Purchased: 05/01/2020 from MHSA store
    Entity: Trust(1RP)
    Check cashed: 05/12/2020
    Approved: 09/14/2020
    Stamp in hand: ?

    They're still quoting 45 days for stamp mailing, so not sure how long that'll take.
