Form 4 wait time

form 4 individual paper

Check cashed July 11 2017 - "pending"
Approved January 15 2018
Stamp received at dealer February 1st 2018
I have a number of cans purchased on trusts ranging from May 25th, 2017 to August 8th, 2017. Wish they were processing trusts as fast as individuals since I'd then likely have at least 3 by now.

Purchased an Ultra 7 (trust) April 20, 2017, check cashed May 16, approved Jan 25, 2018, picked it up 2 days ago.
Thats a bit re-assuring. Maybe I can get my first can before end of March.
 
What do you guys see as a normal time from purchase to check cashed date? Purchased from a dealer that collects fee as part of purchase and pays the fee with form so I don’t have a way to look at that date as if they cashed my check. Have tried to avoid calling dealer or batf and taking up someone’s time, just trying to get an estimate or average to go off of.
 
Okay good to know. Dealer seems to be on top of things so I assume it went out right away. Sitting at 158 days since purchasing so I feel like I should be close.

Finally decided to make first call to check status, received date was 9/19 and currently pending.

I have two in since April/May and you guys are killing me. Where's my cans? Fuck! At this rate, I'll get the one I submitted last month before these arrive. Frustrating.
Yep. Watching this thread is driving me nuts.

Form 4 trust. (NFA lawyers trust with amendment removing trustees leaving myself as originator. Noted this just in case that causes delays.)
Mailed 03/29/2017
Check cased 04/13/2017
Approval: TBD
Received: TBD

Seeing these form 4 trusts clearing from May 2017 is disheartening (good for them though). Going to give ATF a call once I hit 365 days. will update dates once I get some more info.

My dealer called about a month ago to check on them. Both have been sent to Virginia indicating both checks have cashed in Oklahoma City. I'll also have him check when we get to the 1 year mark.
