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 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.

Its not that the examiner is spending 6 weeks looking at your form, he/she only spends about five minutes on it. The issue is the backlog of the 100k+ forms ahead of you in line, each waiting for their five minutes.

Yep. I'm on 4 months now and counting. My app has been assigned an examiner, and I spoke to her last week - my app isn't even on her desk yet. I'm guessing another 2 months.

Sent in a form 4 in mid-March for a 'can. Local LEO sign-off, so no MSP delay. Went pending 6/5. Still waiting. The chick at NFA said that 5-6 months is the norm right now, when I finally got spooked and called them last week. Avoided the trust route. As they say, a patient man's game.
