Any updates from you January/February-check-cashed fellas?  This weekend will be 10 months since they cashed the check.

Talked to BATFE today, they said 8-9 months.....yeah, right

With Form4 e-file allegedly coming on line soon those of us waiting on paper to clear may end up waiting a lot longer

They’ve been promising the eForms 4  for years. 
 

We have 10 Form 4s pending. Almost 6 months since the check was tendered.

A right delayed is a right denied. Could you imagine the outcry if this involved voting,etc?

Yeah, at what point does this delay fall under the "takings Clause" of the US Constitution?

Selling a gun. ATF cashed the check a couple weeks ago, but there is no record of the current transfer. How long from check cashing to pending is typical?

And the status will be 'Pending'.  That's all they will say once they have the money.  Still, I always call about a month after the money clears, just to make sure that it is really in their system and not lost.

 

Silencer Shop shows Form 4 eFile taking 6 months, paper taking a couple of weeks longer.

Eform form 4's haven't been a thing in years. Even silencershop sends paper forms. The news of eform form4s last week stating that they will be back by the end of the year was quite welcomed but as stated above, they have been promising its return for years...

They claim typically 90 days from when they cash the check to when it goes "pending"

Last couple of transfers I did went from "Pending" to "We can't find your paperwork, please resubmit" in 11 months. Worthless MRFers.

I thought it was about 2-3 weeks from receipt of check until "pending". Supposedly to wait until the check clears. What is this 3 months stuff?

I call and ask even if I'm the buyer and the ATF has never refused to give me info yet.

Called ATF again (called in December the first time).  The woman I was finally connected with was not very pleasant.  I tried to be deferential and polite.

Pending.

She said all she could recommend was to call "periodically".  I asked if that helps and she said "no, it doesn't change anything"

Given her demeanor, I didn't dare ask why she then advised calling "periodically".

At some point I would think the ATF lack of performance falls under the "takings clause" of the US Constitution.  Not that that matters anymore....

I mailed my check and my paperwork in on January 30th, 2021. They cashed my check March 13th of 2021 and the stamp came November 8th 2021. Dealer to individual. Guess I was lucky.

 

I was told by the dealer the process sometimes can take longer if the weapon has a long history (multiple) transfers, as they not only examine your transfer request, but they examine all the paperwork from the gun's history from past transfers.
