How can they know this? E form has been active less than one month.

Form 4 as listed above not sure exactly, purchased on 09/14/21
Check 1 cashed 10/05/21
Check 2 cashed 11/1/21

Which is odd since they were both purchased and filed for the same day.
Nothing else yet and the information above looks about the same for waits as it did back in September when I purchased it. Went through my FFl using silencer shops kiosk.

I want to get one but hate the idea of paying for the stamp and waiting a year. Terrible process

Just got mine a few days short of 1 year. Sounds like the new E-Form is reported to be 2-3 months. Might be worth the wait until your dealer has that dialed in.

My brother had his check cashed March of 2021. He called the ATF and they said that it would be processed in a month.

Funny... 6 hours later I just got an email from my FFL that I'm ready to go pick it up.
Thanks!!!
I suppose mine could be any day now. I remember calling over the summer to ask about wait times in hopes that I would have it for hunting season, they told me around February would be what I should expect. Talk about frustrating.

I think of it like getting mount, just give them the animal and forget about it.

Have you guys seen the SilencerCo buy one get one free deal they’re running?

I don’t understand the wait times? I can walk into a gun shop and in less than an hour walk out with a firearm. Background check and all. What are they doing that it takes close to a year to just get a suppressor that a background check would not cover?

Looks like that expired end of December I see a few places run similar deals throughout the year though.

I agree, its like getting a mount. I think its just frusterating that the times seem to keep getting longer and longer. My first can took like 4 months, I'm closing in on ten months this time for the 2 cans I'm waiting for,

The NFA Tracker page is showing that a majority of the form 4 stamps being approved right now were from March and April. Mine went in in June. So 2 or 3 months out. Still plenty of time to adjust and get ready for this year’s hunting seasons.

My check was cashed 3/11 and I keep waiting for a phone call.
