I don't think the Feds know where they are! I called 7 days ago and they tell me they are working on the 15-18 of last July. Today I call and am told their not to the 13th yet. If they can check on you and "authorize" a .50 cal rifle or a semi auto 308 or a .44 mag. pistol, the actual weapon over the phone in a matter of minute. Then why the heck does it take 11 months to ok a suppresser?
Yeah, approved June 13th, now just waiting on dealer to receive which they said could take up to 30 days.
Bought in June 2016 Feds cashed check on July 22nd 2016 and approved June 13th 2017. Hope this helps others with time questions.
Well the Stamp came in today and my Thunder Beast was released from jail!! Yeah! But for those waiting here is the time line....
June 16, 2016 bought.
July 21, 2016 Feds cashed check.
June 16, 2017 stamp approved.
July 5, 2017 stamp showed up at my gun shop.
Good luck hopefully they will fix this time issue in the future it crazy.
Woooo hoooo . Just a year and two days and my tax stamp is at the dealer. They are in Des Moines and it is just a quick 140 mile trip (one way ) and get that puppy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Pics will follow . Hope this doesn't discourage too many to purchase one. Jim
With all the local dealers here talking about slow sales due to folks waiting on the HPA, Shush, or other legislation, it seems to me that wait times should start decreasing soon, but I am sure that there are lot of contingencies that I am not aware of.
Well my stamp was approved on 6/15/17 and as of 7/16/17 still no stamp at my dealer so I guess I will have to file for a certified copy of it now. This is just plain Bull Crap glad we don't run our business this way.
I don't think I would get to worried yet. They had a 2 week holiday around the 4th. Give it a little more time. I have seen dealers say they don't have them yet just because they think they don't have time for you right now. It happens.

This is one of the really sucky parts about getting suppressors, everyone gets their money up front while you're left with nothing for the next 9 months to a year or sometimes more.
