I just purchased a HK45 and suppressor yesterday, I was told it will take six months from the day the check clears the bank. I'm here in Houston. They told me there is only one person for Texas providing the stamp.
i sent a form 1 out in january for an sbr(check cashed within 2wks). friday paid for and sent out a form 4 for a sparrow silencer. heck with the wait, i am gonna do a tax stamp every other month. that way it's gonna be like xmas when shit starts clearing and stamps show up. already thinking about buyind a YHM .30 cal titanium phantom suppressor just because.lol
NfAtracker.com it all depends on your state. They just hired a bunch of new people and they are still in training. It should shorten the time by quite a bit when they are done with the training, unless sandy hook caused a surplus of NfA orders. I sent 3 in on jan 22 and I'm not expecting anything for at least 4 more months. If these wait times were weeks instead of months I'm sure I'd have a crapload of NfA.
It was around 5.5 months for me to get an error letter (I gave them single sided rather then double sided forms) I got it all fixed and back to them within a week and it just went to the examiner they said I should have the stamp within 30 days so around 6 months seems like the wait if you got it in in october. No telling how many orders have gone in since then.
There's no rhyme or reason to it. I sent two sbr's off almost two months apart, checks cleared almost two months apart and then went pending the same day. I also received both form 4's on the same day. So, 6.5 and 8 months for those two. However the one that was sent in between those two came in before both of them. That one took right at 5 months. It's just the luck of the draw.
