    Looks like (at NFA tracker) that new F4 submissions (individual) are WAY down in wait time.

    Yep. It’s crazy for some reason.

    I did ask about mine from May, but no luck. It’s transferring to a trust, but it already has an approved BGC (per the ATF a month or more ago), and there’s no trust to check over since I used the 24-month exemption and simply sent a letter that said it hasn’t changed since the last approval.

    Oh well.

    Form 4 Using SiShop One Shot Trust for an SBS:
    SiShop entry: 9/21/18
    Docusigned: 9/22/18
    Mailed: 10/9/18
    Cashed: 10/30/18
    Approved: 9/11/19
    Stamp at Dealer: 9/21/19

    So just under 11 months from cashed to received. I have my Turbo K cashed 6/14/19, so I'll be interested to see if somehow it ends up being one of those 90 day approvals Big Waylon posted about. I also have my promo SiCo cans with cashed dates of 7/19/19 and 8/14/19. Guess it's time to buy something else to put in process!

    I just got my call from Scott and one of my form 4 is back but I am on my way to get on a plane so I have to wait another week. I am hoping my other one is back by then.

    Yes 71 days. My 2nd one I suspect will be two years to make up for this.

    It’s been a very common trend for individual F4s submitted after 7/1/19. Nobody knows why.

    Even people that have other forms pending have received some back from this time period. Like a stamp received this week from an 8/1/19 check cashed date, but still has one pending from April. (As an example, that’s what a guy on ARF posted yesterday)

    My Form 4 check arrived in Portland on Monday, and it cleared the bank yesterday (Thursday). Maybe that's a good sign.

    The quick approval process has been scrapped due to the calls of those who submitted Pre-July and have been waiting in excess of 8 months for approvals. It seemed that the July or later approvals that were turned around after two months were too good to last. Wish others would have just bought more stuff in hopes of quicker approvals instead of bitching about a wait.

    If you're not OK with waiting in excess of a year, NFA isn't for you.

    Sucks that it didnt last but I am not surprised that people complained about being stuck on the old process and that the "fix" was to basically screw everyone.

    Not sure it’s a good (or bad) sign. That’s the typical timeframe I’ve had on 40+ submissions.

    When the check is cashed, the ATF doesn’t even know you’ve submitted a form...so they can’t screw it up at that point. :D

    Says the guy bitching about the fast turn around time stuff being gone...

    (This is me joking and just giving you a hard time)

    I had a May submission and was hoping it would be a quick turn one. Nope. Oh well.

    I'm bitching because some fudds ruined it for others. I have a pre-July stamp waiting, but doesn't bother me a bit. Buying two more NFA items this month.

    You can file a Form 1 in eForms and they’re currently being approved in 30-45 days.

    Seen a bunch of chatter about form 4 trusts getting approved from October and onward mixed in with earlier submissions. Wonder if it is a variant of their fast track scheme from last year

    3 weeks on an individual. Rolled the prints myself. This is my first individual Form 1 in 30 years of NFA stuff. Got two more in the pipeline.

    This makes me happy. One of my SiCo freebies was cashed 7/19 and the other is 8/14.
