I would contend they are still clueless.  I have one in from 11/16, got a correction letter 12/17 and as of 2 weeks ago still pending.  Form 1 filed 2/17  still not approved even though it was "supposed" to be done in Dec  of 17', according to the examiner working on it.  2 more form 4's sent 7/1/17.   Of course 4 more, but they were sent 10/17  and only an idiot would expect them in less than 8 months?  Just too much to ask.  In numerous conversations with one examiner working on some of this stuff he tells me one thing, nothing happens, contacts me months later asking for another tidbit (already provided, but now lost.....) then promises to finish them? 

I am nearing either the breaking point where I'm losing interest or getting another SOT, saving a bunch of taxes, and getting my stuff in a few weeks?   Or I start transfers on stuff I think I might buy, send them in, and by the time they get to corrections, I'll have bought it and can put in the real information on the correction a year or two later!

Agreed. It stopped me from buying anything. I feel more positive in light of recent times but am not going to buy anything until i see more evidence that things are running faster and smoother.

There is no reason they can't put a system in place to streamline the process if you either have Class III or you have had a transfer within the past say 3 years.  It should populate you are ok when they enter your information into the system once the check is cashed.  To pay $10,000's for something and then sit with nothing to show for it for 6-12 months is getting ridiculous.  This is the 21st Century and you can't tell me that with all the technology in place ATF can't come up with something better than this?

Got some good news that I hope is the new trend.  Form 4 on a trust with 2 members went pending 10 Oct 17 and approved 2 Apr 18.  It was for 2 silencers and 1 MG.  Approvals under 6 months!

I think the individual F4 times are slowing down. I have an Oct 5th check cashed and still has not seen an examiner as of yesterday.

do the nfa tracker with trust and individual..you can see exactly whats happening...they are trying to get them to meet up at around 6-7 months...one going down, the other going up or staying flat.......i heard they put 3/4 focus on trusts after getting individuals down to 6 months....drove the trusts down from 12 to 6 months

 

i used to think 3 months was a horrible wait

Got approval on my Colt 27's today. 6 months - 9 days from time  check cashed. .  Considerably faster than previous transfers.
