Supressor, this is my first dip in to the class III pool....
Not exact dates but,
Early June '09 it only took 2 weeks to get the paperwork back from MSP, I was really excited!
Late June, early July my paperwork went into the apparent black hole we call the BATFE.
As of today (3/4) still nothing........
I'm considering some full auto fun but the thought of spending 10-15k and experiencing this type of wait makes this decision much more difficult.
Any words of advice from those who've been through this before?

Thanks
Dave

I would call to check the status. I read on the internetz that some examiners don't really follow up on application problems other than sending a letter to the applicant. If the applicant never gets the letter . . . .?

I called once and got a mailbox, didn't leave a message. Called back 30 minutes later and talked to a rep who helped me.

You will need the serial of your NFA item for them to look it up.
Do you have your cancelled check? They might like to know when that cleared.

Check was dated 19 June and posted 16 September.
With all of the Select Fire bashing that goes on here (I have no feelings one way or the other), I have to say that when I spoke with Wayne(?) about this, he was very helpful and said if I brought in a copy of the front and back of the check he would look into it and try to find out if there were any issues or if this is the new "normal" length of time now.....

On the other hand, I have a threaded 10/22 and I might have to go try out my toy there before I'm allowed to bring it home

Just received a customers form 4 back. I don't know when the check was cashed, but the form was mailed off at the end of October. This was an individual, not a trust, and took just over four months. Before this one they were running six months. Sounds like things may be getting better

Good news on wait times. The aboved mentioned customer, we filled out paperwork in October, but I forgot he was out of town and couldn't get the LE sign off until November. Forms were mailed Nov 30th, approval arrived at my shop on March 4th. That's getting alot better then what it was a year ago.

Mine recently came back approved- took almost 3 1/2 months. Trust format, not individual.

WOOHOO, It's here, it's here!
While I was at Select Fire yesterday with a copy of the check so Wayne could look into my issue, they received a handful of ATF envelopes, one of which had my forms in it! This thing is a hoot, both of my .22 uppers are having some work done on them so the only thing suppressor ready is my heavy barrel 10/22 which even with the can was keeping them in the 10 ring on the 100 yard small bore target (at 100 yards ). I'm still grinning, I'd really like to try this on a bolt gun....

BTW the long wait is/was something to do with me, a guy I work with bought a can the same time I did but he didn't put his paperwork in until November and his approved form was in the same stack as mine

By the way, did I say how much fun this is? I'm like a kid at Christmas!

Again, I have to give Wayne the credit due, if the forms had not arrived he was going to check into the reason for the delay.

Wait, I have to say, I still have a big ***ed grin on my face
