    2020 or 2021?? I've never heard of anyone taking near 2 years!
    It was 2021 for sure. I will have to see if I can edit my typo. Thanks

    Edit: I corrected the post from today. Apparently I can edit my posts from today, but not the original post from last year.

    I'm in the same boat. I'm at 354 days since check cashed on a individual paper form 4 and 65 days on eform 1. I called to check status and still pending on both. I read some recent forums were most people are 400+ days on paper F4s. One guy claims the examiner said every month pending, it gets kicked back an extra month approved. For example... if you were pending in March 2021...you should get approved in April 2022. If you were pending in April 2021, you're looking at June 2022. And the reason behind it all is the Eforms. I know someone that got his eform 4 back in 77 days. Even though I don't need another...I wanna buy another can and do a eform just to see which would come back faster...the new can or the one I've been waiting a year on. Can't wait to post my times on here and say something like...hang in there, it's coming

    I will say that 65 days on a eForm 1 sounds promising. That is much easier to swallow than 365+ days for a form 4.

    1. NFA Item: SBR
    2. Form Type: 1
    3. Transferee Type: Individual
    4. Forms Sent: 2.19.22 E Forms (prints mailed 3 days later)
    5. Pending Date:
    6. Approved Date: 5/2/22
    7. Forms Received:
    8. Transferror/Maker Letter:
    9. Examiner Name:
    10. Notes: See


    my last few form 1 (sbr, sbs) were either approved or rejected in 30 days. The SBS initially rejected for model number, but upon resubmit was accepted. This one is taking longer, not surprising given the upheaval at the ATF.
    Got my SBR Back today. Jacob Huff.

    I'm sorry if this has been answered upstream ( don't want to wade thru 100 pages) but how is everyone obtaining info on their progress? I filed a form 4 thru the silencer shop web site, did my prints at their kiosk in late Sept '21. Got a request to certify about 6 weeks ago but my FFL took awhile to get up to speed. Finally was able to certify online about a week ago. So do I just wait on approval or ? Any idea how long its been taking to get the stamp approved for pik up ? Thanks for any insight on this process.

    You don't really get updates. You get everything submitted, then out of the blue you get approved
