current ATF wait time

I finally got the paper work back to transfer a suppressor I sold. WOW! a little over 6 months Anyone know if the wait times are improving and getting close to normal again? That seems to be a bit excessive, and makes it hard to sell NFA items when you tell people the wait could be over 6 months. Oh yeah, the LEO sign off was done locally in one day, so no MSP wait included in that time.

Wow. I am waiting on my form 4 to come back. I was hoping the 3 1/2 months I have been waiting would be the most.

6 months? Daayum...

6 months does sound quite long, mine went pending on the 8th of july, a little over 2 months, and I'm currently waiting on FBI to get back with the fingerprint results. I'm alredy in the fingerprint database for work, they just need to make sure the ones on the card match the ones in the DB and make sure I havent been up to any shens in the last 2 years. I'm hoping my transfer will be < 4 months.

I talked with my dealer today and asked whether he heard anything from ATF. It seems their processing time is increasing. My dealer has some Form 4's submitted Sept. 1 of last year for other customers and they think they'll get processed in 2-3 months. The current wait is around 12-13 months, if he's right.

That is exactly why I called BS when people claimed that wait times would crash after the July rush was over. There was some dealers that said that the wait times in Jan/Feb of this year would be 2-3 months. Boy we're they wrong. I have a form 4 pending from Jan 15th and I don't expect anything for another 5-6 months.

I know a month or so of that was them wanting a citizenship form, which I think is crazy when the person was born in the US(stated on the form 4) and still lives in the US(also on the form 4). It shouldn't take that long, and I wonder if they are just trying to discourage NFA purchases by making the wait unreasonable.

Paid for my lwrc 6.8 with 8 in barrel at the beginning of october 2012. Got Interview with MSP at the end of October. Sent paper work to NAF on November 15th 2012. Got paper work back end of May with mistake(see above) on citizenship form. Sent paperwork back and was received by NAF on June 3rd 2013. Call on Monday of this week and was told I should receive answer by August 3rd. I have a c&r, maryland gun permit, and nra certified instructor. It just takes that long.

Finally got my stamp approval last Friday but was gone for the weekend. Going to pick up my sbr tomorrow along with another 1911 and of course a stripped lower. I now have a whole shelve of them in various forms of completion.
