    Been reading here and I've got hope.

    Picked up a cert off the table at the Bighorn Steel Classic in March for 50% off a TBAC.

    Called the next week and ordered a takedown 22.

    It was assigned a serial number in October and is now on its way to my dealer.

    I'll go in and sign paperwork Monday and then the second wait begins. It's going to be a long process.

    Turned in a certificate back in august for a 338 Ultra....my serial number isn't supposed to be developed until june or july....I feel your pain. It's worth saving 1000 bucks though to do so, just have to be patient. I'm not even halfway there on the first wait period.

    When I first submitted the paperwork, the website said January of 2021 so two months soon is much welcomed.

    I might buy a pistol can while I'm at the LGS next week. Get a two for one and only wait once.

    So i never got an email about the form 4 tax stamp being cashed, but silencer shop website shows my order originated on 10/28/2020 and the form 4 tax stamp was cashed on 11/16/2020.(I didn't know that info was on the website). 6 days past the check being cashed is probably too soon to hope for approval? I'm never going to make it. I am able to shoot it at my local range, but it just makes it worse.

    Took me 6 months to get mine approved. Did form 4, manual and a money order. I was too cheap to use Silencer Shop Kiosk as my local shop was charging $40 to use it. Or I can do the paperwork myself... this was also with the change in the office with the ATF.

    Just got 2 stamps back. One for an ultra 7 that took 4 months and another slightly longer. Torrent t3k single shot trust cashed 5-28-20, approved 11-14-20 and picked up 11-21-20.
    The trust took about 2 weeks before I was able to finished paperwork and submit.

    Question, How do you guys figure out your approval dates? I've got a Knights Armament MK11 that was cashed on 6/1. Its a Trust file through silencershop. Do they update their portal when the approval is in the system.

    You either wait for the dealer to call you and tell it's approved or you call the ATF NFA Branch in WV and ask them. If you opt to call and check the status you'll need the S/N, Entity name (your name, trust name, corp, etc), and the dealer you are picking it up from.

    1: 12 months.
    2: 11 months.
    3: 5 months. Maybe they're catching up.
    All done on a Trust.

    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...

    Approved the 17th for 5 of the 6, one needed an I crossed or a T dotted or somesuch and had to be corrected and sent back, so probably another 2 weeks there...

    Stamps arrived at SOT today...

    Dealer and family are in quarantine due to possible 'rona until Friday...

    Needless to say I'm done buying lottery tickets... :sneaky:

    New here and new to suppressors. I used silencer shop to file the beginning of Nov. So if you efile through silencer shop you'll still get a email notifying you when the check was cashed? I was thinking there was no actual check going this route. Thanks!
    It is not technically an "e-file." You do your paperwork with Silencer Shop through the computer and they mail in physical documents. The BATFE stopped accepting "e-file" back in '14 if I recall. The only reason I bring this up is so you look at the right information on the approval time websites.
    Regards,

    Yes it is still all actual paper that is being mailed, just the convenience of filling it out and signing online.

    Silencer Shop really has this shit down. I put off jumping into suppressor market for a long time because I was intimidated. Their entire setup from the kiosk to the online signing is a pretty awesome convenience in my opinion. After I saw how easy it was, the next 3 buys came within 45 days...then my Form 1 SBRs started lol. NFA items are addicting.

    So question about when we actually receive the stamp. Is that mailed to the address on the trust or to the shop? I just did my first one with the SiCo singles shot trustlast month.

    If it was a form 4 it goes to the dealer who is holding the can

    I have resisted looking at this thread for awhile now as to not get pissy when I see submissions earlier than me getting approved. With an April 27 submission I seem to be pretty squarely in the middle of stuff coming back now. Fingers crossed it happens soon and I don't end up like the guys who have been waiting a year plus. I feel for them dearly. I made myself forget about it for six months, now Im getting antsy.

    The biggest take away from this thread is don't delay getting a can. The best time to have submitted was months or years ago. This thread has been going since 2009. So take that info and don't put it off if you want one.

    I'm new to these, so was a little surprised that this one was approved so fast. I have three others that had checks cashed in May and June, but the last one bought, was the one approved first.
