I hate to say it, but it looks like SilencerShop waited almost a month to send in your Forms and check.
Ask me how I know.

Yesterday was 7 months since my check cashed. Form 4 trust.
I just tried to completely forget about it for the first 6 months but now it's starting to bug me that I still have not received word. I'm frustrated at the length of time it takes to process these things. I know others have endured longer waits but some applied after I did and already have theirs. Makes no sense.

Looks like the ATF tracker is still saying avg. 8.66 months for Form 4 trusts plus a week to get the stamp. I was expecting 7 months as well based off of a lot of the reports in this thread. It'll be exactly 7 months from check cashed for our trust November 9th.

I'm over 9 months on my latest. First was 14 months, second was 16 months. I'm not holding my breath although I was 'hoping' this one was more along the lines of 'normal' times.

Hooooly Sheeeeeiiit! I'll be pretty disappointed if that's the case for us. Everyone of us in the trust is a military member with a security clearance. I know that probably doesn't mean didly to them but it should.

It doesn't. There seems to be no rhyme or reason when it comes to how long it takes.

Reset my expectations after that. It'll happen but it'll be according to their timetable. Sucks waiting.

Hearing Protection Act should be law by now but GOP legislators are spineless. And a big F U shout-out to Hillary.

I checked on mine today which went pending 4/14/18 and was told it was in the FBI background check process. Now I just gotta pray I don't stuck in the dark hole for 6 more months.
yeah mine was pending FBI background since april and they just cleared 10/3 & 10/6. extremely frustrating but at least it's done.

Well I gotta take back all the mean nasty things I was thinking about the whole process. Just kidding. It's still frustrating.
But for me the wait is over. Got the call from my dealer at 4:45 this afternoon and was over there within 20 min.

7 months + 1 day from the date my check was cashed.
Silencerco Omega. will find a home on my 6.5 creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor. Can't wait for this weekend to try it out!!!

Just be sure to work with a dealer that really knows how to fill out the paperwork. If you do it'll go more smoothly with the examiner and you'll get your can more quickly.

And don't hold your breath too long or you'll turn blue!

So is "FBI background check" an actual phase in the process now? i sent out 5 stamps in june. 3 form 1 and 2 form 4. all on trust with 2 responsible people. Checks were all cashed on 6/21. I'm not even interested in calling yet as i'll wait until i see more approvals closer to my date. i'm only asking as these were my first purchases after 41P

Thanks.

Has anyone ever had success in seeing if the ATF will process 2 forms at the same time? I submitted at form 4 in May and another one in Sept. I wonder if it is possible to have them tie those 2 requests together.

I wish they would. Or simply have your name on a list if you’ve been approved in the last 12-18 months to make it run faster.

I haven’t seen anything faster than 7 months come through the shop recently, still have numerous pending approval over 12 months. Sucks seeing some of these faster approval times, oh well.

Has anyone seen anymore news about the new system ATF was to have in place for FY2019? It's supposed to get wait times down to 90 days.

I'm not saying that I believe that but just what I read.
