Man that sucks, guys who filed after you are getting theirs, that’s gotta be frustrating. I really don’t understand the process, if piles of form 4s are divided up and some guys end up on top of the stack, some people are faster st reviewing and approving? I don’t know, I guess that’s the name of the game. I’m waiting on 3, checks all cashed in June, I’m waiting as well. I hope for your guys sake you see yours before I see mine! This wait is brutal!

My previous F4 was filed one day and a friend from work, on hearing about how easy it was to buy a suppressor, filed 3 the very next day at the same store back in August 2019. His came back in early May 2020 in 2 separate batches while mine was late June. I think one of his was approved by the same examiner as mine. The different wait times are mind boggling.

Too weird, I feel bad for the guys who wait over a year. Seems like 6-8 months is about average for most guys now. I want to know how the heck guys get them after 4 months though while. That’s a kick in the dick for the guys in it over a year.

It would be really cool if one of the suppressor manufacturers or big pro-gun YouTube personalities could actually go to the ATF's facility and get a tour/walk through of how the forms are processed and handles. I would watch something like that for sure. Hell, I might even pay $5 for some understanding and answers about their processes. I see no reason why the ATF wouldn't be amenable to this idea... Unless they want to hide how f'd up they are....

    1st suppressor purchase, today was the first time i've ever called to check status. i was pretty surprised when he said it was "approved" on 9/2. now just a little bit more time for the stamp to get to the dealer. i was also told that's running about 45 days.

    purchased 4/16
    cashed 4/30
    approved 9/2


    took it home today 9/18
    dealer said he had one for another guy get released a couple of weeks ago that only took 7 weeks for processing. crazy how unpredictable it can be.

    If you don’t mind me asking where in PA? I’d love to check out the maverick.

    I have lots of trigger time with the Maverick already because of an in with my SOT and can tell you they are 100% worth it.

    I am in the Northeast and shoot at New Holland primarily. You’re welcome to come check it out if you’re local.

    7 days into my wait. 3rd can. It never gets easier....

    Hell I bought two a few years ago and since I decided to jump back in the wait I now have 8 sitting in jail. Hoping for one big ol’ batch approval but since three were submitted in May and the other 5 have not yet gotten to the ATF I’m going to assume I won’t see the first three until late November and the other 5 until April next year.

    Or I could get lucky and get them all before hunting season since 2020 has actually been a surprisingly good year for me so far.

    My 4 stamps that were approved all on 9/8... FFL called and said they had a stamp for me..... I said “just one?”..... LOL cracks me up. I get a batch approval of 4 cans all on 9/8 but they only shipped one tax stamp to the FFL.... waiting for the other 3 to get there before I go pick it up.

    Has anyone here recently waited a month for a check to be cashed by BATF? All my other ones took 2 weeks and I’m getting worried.

    I've been hearing from people that they're going on 2-3 months for a check to be cashed. That sounds like it sucks. I've got two still pending and one more on backorder.

    They must have sold out pretty fast. I got an e-mail update from them on September 23rd that said they were up to speed again and shipping in 3-4 days.
