Other sites I visit have these, so I figured I would get one going here as I just started the process. Basically just post when you sent it off, check cashed, stamp received date. This way we can see how long it takes. I purchaced a can for my 6.8 from major weapons here one ther forum, and just dropped my form 4 off at the post office today. Took about 4 days to get the sheriff to sign the papers. Now the real wait begins!
6-01-13 packet sent off
6-11-13 check cashed
7-28-13 went pending
3-24-14 Approved!
4-02-14 Stamp received!

Waiting for my can to even arrive at the dealer's....at least he'll bring it over for me to fire while he's at my house.

one from October, two from end of Jan.

Charlie,

Your dealer to dealer is going on 5 months? That's crazy. Majorweapons has been running over 60 days on Form 3s.

Major Weapons is my dealer...
It took right at 80 days to get my form 3, the whole damn process is backed up. I'm hearing over 7 months now for the stamp to come in the mail

I sent in a Form 4 at the end of Sept last year and it went pending on Oct 2. Got the stamp in the mail 6-months and a few days later. The more you "count the days" the more you torture yourself.

BTW, mine was a Spectre II. VERY VERY VERY happy with it. Very good results on my Buck Mark w/ 4" TacSol barrel. INSANELY quiet on my 10/22 with TacSol SB-X barrel shooting Aguila 38gr SE Subsonic Hollow Points. Like movie quiet. Unreal.

Form 1: make your own, pay the tax
Form 3: dealer to dealer, no tax
Form 4: dealer or previous owner, pay the tax

Just so we're on the same page

We can figure the current administration will drag their feet as long as possible to approve any of the NFA forms - just because they're anti-gun.

ATF is treating you folks like the IRS treats Tea Party and Patriot tax exemption requesters. We need a Congressional hearing on this issue too. It has been established that the bamalam administration is anti gun and pushing disarmament. Same-Same yes?

I ordered a .22 can from a custom gunsmith back in Jan and it still hasn't made it to Major yet.

Wow. Not in the know but sounds more like a manufacturer issue than a paperwork issue. Regardless, the wait sucks either way.
