The time for processing a Form 4 transfer is turning me off of purchasing any more NFA items. Been over twenty years since my last purchase. 100% up front payment and I am accepting all the risk for a $10K-$20K-$30K-or greater MG. Not a game I am willing to play in anymore.

These times are really encouraging for individual transfers considering the last year or so. Thanks for posting this.

My last Form 4 which was an individual to dealer transfer was mailed to ATF on August 15, 2017 and approved on September 30, 2017. Of course, I am still waiting for a Form 4 that was mailed to ATF on August 21, 2017 going from individual to dealer so there appears to be no rhyme or reason to it.

    I mailed Form 4 out 10 months ago today for machine gun.

 

    Mailed out 11/8/16

 

   Maybe 2 months too go?

Well, I started this thread with this statement and now!

 

 Still waiting...It's been a year and 6 days. (371) total days :angry2:

I called NFA about 4 different times, the last 2 times was in the last three weeks. They claim it's still pending with no problems!

 

It is on a  (Individual, Form 4)

 

 

 Will call them later today. It should be any day now....

Called NFA today and they said they are waiting on the my background check. I always get delayed when waiting to buy a gun in a gun shop anywhere between 20min to 2hrs. When I applied for a multi hand gun purchase permit several years ago (when VA had a one gun per month law) State police told me their is a fugitive with my last name and that flags me every time. Haven't herd anything from NFA the whole 12 months.

Stampcollector... Hopefully, they get you approved quickly. That seems out of the norm for a Form 4 individual.

 

I received word from my dealer today.

Thunder Beast suppressor Form 4 Trust, Mailed December 15, 2016, stamp received by the dealer today. 11 months.

Received stamp on Daniel Defense SBR today.  It took five months and three weeks.  Individual Form 4 paper.  Getting better.
