I confirmed with the ATF that my form 4 trust approval was on 4-20-20, I have yet to hear from my FFL, 31 days after approval.

Its just stupid!!!

Wait 10.5 months and pay 200 dollars for a "stamp" and then have to wait another 1-2 months for said stamp to be mail. horrible service imo...
My approval time to my FFL having it in hand was about a month

Buy a can.
Send $200 check to ATF.
ATF cashes check.
Wait 10 months.
Collect your receipt. (The tax stamp is simply proof that you paid.)

As far as that goes, why isn't a copy of my cancelled check proof that I paid the tax. It is a tax, right?

The background check is a normal FBI NICs. Max 3 days.

There is zero reason to deprive citizens of their privately owned property while the ATF shuffles paperwork on their end.

Buddy got his bought his, check to ATF cashed.
cashed: 10/22/2019
Approved: 4/16/2020
FFL Called: 5/28/2020, in hand same day.
[220 days]

I'm still workin on mine, check to ATF cashed.
cashed: 11/2/2019
Approved: 5/11/2020
FFL Called: (not yet! Giving them 3-4 more weeks honestly).

I assume ATF do these once a month in batches hence the "45 days" the ATF tells you when you call. That's 30 days for monthly shipment. + 7-10 for mail + fluff (holidays and what not).

Form 1 cans are doable with hand tools, 1 month wait time.

Forgive me for being naive but, I'm guessing that's some form of "build it yourself" with "tools I need to buy because i don't have any"?

Serious question why does it take so long. And why would it matter if it’s a form 1 or 4 wouldn’t they both take the same time period?

Don’t have one but have been thinking about it

You can get by with a hand drill, files and vice.
