Lets see who wins. Although none of us are really winning with this process.
So update....

i bought my first one in Feb 2019. i held out for as long as i could but with all these recent quick turn arounds and some others who bought in Feb getting their stamps back, i broke down and called yesterday to check my status. found out it was approved last monday.

i now think the wait for the call from the dealer might be more excruciating than the wait for the approval. i'm kinda regretting knowing it is approved.

Do y'all know what your (or your brother in-law's) check cashed or pending dates were?

2/21/19 was check cashed

no idea on pending.
Ok, thanks, that's the latest "normal" check cashed date I've seen, it seemed like they were stuck around 02/12 for a while, so hopefully they are making progress again.

just curious when I'll get mine back...will really be a side by side comparison of Trust vs Individual since we both have the same purchased and check cashed dates.

I got the same thing from them. 10 months.

Some of these latest posts aren't making me feel so left out with my normal approval time.

10 months isn’t normal. 11-13 is more normal. They just approved a bunch at 2-3 months to create outliers so they can say 10 month average when 11-12 is more realistic.

I bought 4 from the same dealer about 2 to 3 months apart. All form 4 individual, the first two were almost exactly 9 months to the day from the day I did the paper work till the day I had suppressor in hand. Number 4 come back in 3 months, got it the same day as #2 that I waited on for 9 months. Still waiting on #3. Doesn't make much sense at all.

My last can was purchased on individual form submitted July 17, 2019.
Picked up my stamp and can from the dealer Nov 8, 2019.

The one before that was a January 2019 purchase with a late September stamp delivery.

The first time I called they said pending not assigned but now when I call they said still pending but didn’t mention if it’s been assigned is that because it has been or they just didn’t include that part ?

Didn't include that part. If it has been assigned they will say that. Once it has been assigned youre in the home stretch. Should be approved within next couple of days once assigned unless there is a correction needed.

I was calling on a semi regular basis and I went from pending to approved from one call to the next within a couple of days.

Government brilliance there, two different approval dates, assuming different inspectors also. Same with mine that just got approved.
I got my 11/5 stamp last week, the 11/11 hasn't gotten to the dealer yet.

Have your dealer double check. My dealer didn't call me because the Stamp was to my trust name.
Thanks, I have. Just gov being gov.

I asked the atf agent if 2 weeks was normal after approval and he informed me that “we have a month to send it”
