ATF Form 4 Wait Times.

Just updated mine. Check cased on the 9th of jan and tax stamp in my dealers hands 4/21

Just over 3 months! Sure the heck beats a year like my last 3!
Well I was expecting the call to pick up my first suppressor any day now, but on the 13th of this month it went in to problem pending status. There was a issue with the Form 3 transfer to my dealer. I was told it could take another 60 days to resolve.

Edit: Just got word that mine was approved on 4-23-15.

Called May 8 told the store put the wrong serial number on the form. They are sending it back to them. The store did that to another a friend bought the same day. Looks like it will be delayed a while.

Make sure you have the serial number.
One in check cashed on 4/10. One going in the mail today.

They say that it takes about 6-8 weeks from the check cash date until it is "in their system", which I assume to mean "pending".
