Wanting to do a form 1 but quietbore is completely out of stock and said it’ll be a while before they are back in stock..
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.

The decision to get a can through a trust should not be based upon the chance of a “quicker” approval. Sure the individual ones usually come back a few weeks sooner they are rarely that much different. In the grand scheme of things the benefits of the trust greatly out way the disadvantages of an individual.

Purchased 4/1/20 from Mile High, Form 3'd and shipped super fast
Did paperwork at The Outpost armory Christiana, TN 4/17/20
Called today ATF said pending as of 8/18/20

The Outpost Armory sat on their ass for 4 months apparently , I've got a call in to see WTF happened before I drive 45 mins to ask in person.

Update
They are in changing locations and have a new FFL/SOT, they claim to have instructed their employees on march 28th to tell NFA paperwork people that their paperwork would be held until they got the new FFL/SOT name. That was never communicated to me at all ,which if it had been, I would either have gone to another FFL or not called today thinking I'm a month or two away from being approved.

They tried to say they are still waiting on approvals from '19, I said that doesn't have anything to do with taking 4 months to submit paperwork or communicating there might be a delay because of FFL/SOT names and the new location. Manage expectations and you won't have pissed off people.

I've had bad luck lately with all this shit. It's all going to work out fine but freakin won't have the suppressor for who knows when, just got a Christensen MPR that won't shoot and have to send it in, and my new Matthews VXR shoots so fast that it's making rage Broadheads expand mid flight and I blew up two arrows trying to diagnose the issue. It's shooting amazing with different broad heads.. at least I'll be able to bow hunt

That sucks. Outpost did a suppressor transfer for me last year without any issues. Used a guy in Manchester for a recent transfer who charged half as much. Picked that one up just yesterday.

checks cashed 8/22/19... There were 7 items in the batch of paper work I sent in. One was approved with stamp received in March. The rest I am still waiting on. Trust with 2RP. Called in early September and no dice...

Tried to call today, but it's a federal holiday.

Pretty sure my reviewer caught the 'Rona and passed... :unsure::unsure::unsure:

Feh...

    Sounds like they are getting faster. The last two I bought a couple years ago were in jail for 14 months.

    Four months! This is what @Johrichal really looks like. I'm not accusing anyone of undue influence but pointing out the obvious. Everyone else can draw their own conclusions.

    I'm seeing a lot of forms that were cashed around the same time as mine are starting to be approved. In your opinion, how often is too often to call the ATF to check the status?

    Calling them is a waste of time unless you just want to piss off the call center. They give you zero useful information.

    Finally I get something to add to this thread,

    Batch approved three Silencershop single shot trusts
    Qty(2) Nomad-L and a Nomad 30

    Check cashed 5/7/20
    Stamp approved 10/8/20
    Stamps at lgs 10/20/20

    A day over 5 months for approval and day shy of 24 weeks for the total wait, way better than the 8 months I waited for the last ones back in 16’ since I actually got these before hunting season.

    Now 2 months, and my check hasn’t cashed. My dealer sent my Form 4 individual out around August 7th and apparently the BATFE office changed locations from West Virginia to Oregon sometime near this timeframe..Anyone else experiencing a delay with their initial processing? I don’t care how long it takes to be approved, I just want to know it was received in a timely manner.

    ETA: Checked with my dealer and they do not request tracking or delivery confirmation, lol!
