when doing the silencer shop form 4's do they still sit on your paperwork for a few months and box up 50k all together and ship them off. Or have they cleaned up their act and submit the stuff in a timely manner?

I am looking at picking up 3 at the minimum, maybe 4 suppressors at once. I would like to make this as painless as possible. I will read and ponder all suggestions.

For doing a bunch all at once, Silencer Shop is the way to go. Just one photo and one set of fingerprints. They do seem to wait a couple of weeks to send them to the ATF in batches, but given that it seems to be taking 8-9 months on average right now, saving a week or two doesn’t outweigh the convenience for me.

My SilencerShop purchases were made on 7/16, ATF cashed the checks on the 7/26. I think it was only a couple of days before the forms were sent out after I finished the purchase for the Form4s on the website.

good to know. there are a few recent complaints on google about people not having things submitted for several months. I was bettign that it is incorrect info, or incomplete info on the purchaser side that caused the issue.

So does anybody know how long the FBI NICS portion of the new process typically takes?

I called to check on the status of my Obsidian 9 and the ATF said it was waiting on the FBI NICS check. He would not say how long that takes.

Form 4 trust, submitted on 3/14/18. Right at 7 months total time so far.

"Cleared" the abyssal Bullshit that it is to get a suppressor...

synonymous with approved....

I had a stroke several years ago and sometimes use the wrong words-it seems legit to me but obviously others have a hard time understanding what I'm saying....it's like a mild case of bendable! LOL!!

DSgrouse: it was for a single person. Form 4. My buddy and I sent ours in together, literally in the same envelope and he got his approved two weeks prior to mine.

Form 4 still takes longer. Everyone on the form is checked which delays it even further. Right now they are running 7 to 8 months. form 1's are quicker. The now allow Efiling the form 1's.

The kiosks are more convenient to a point but really no quicker. My friend's shop is looking into getting one. But they are 5k and built to order. they won't start assembling them until ten are on order. Meanwhile, they hold your 5k and give no idea how long it will take.

The AFT will send two that come in together to totally different examiners. Even several sent in together don't necessarily go to the same examiner.

The time frame isn't in the length of time for the check but the volume.

One recent gun show here had a display from the AFT and they were available for questions. Really a nice group of people who cleared up many questions in this area.
