    Default Pending timeframe

    I have been pending since the end of October. I called last month and they said they were out a full six months, which puts potential approval in late April. Generally speaking, at what point will someone take a look at my paper work? The wait isn't killing me, it is wondering if there is a problem with the way I filled out the paper work.

    I've been pending since december 7th. I was wondering what the problem was because i heard wait times were 2-3 months but apparently that doubled recently.

    I've heard if this is Ur 1st stamp for whatever that it can take as long as 5 months

    but then after the 1st it moves a little faster & the wait time is cut down

    my last 4 for cans & a mg all took 4 to 5 weeks but that was due to my class 3 license
    buying up all the guns and ammo i can just to PISS OFF the douche bag liberals

    The rumor is there were just 12 people handling all NFA forms, and the main wait was for the FBI to process the fingerprints. Apparently NFA fingerprints are the lowest priority and might take months before the volume drops low enough for them to get put in the que. Several people quit and were not replaced, now down to 8 or 9 people. Also, suppressor demand has apparently spiked, even the manufacturers are back ordered a lot. So the paperwork has increased as well.

    Does the type or caliber of weapon ever play into the wait time?

    I doubt it, they are approving your purchase or manufacture and type would not matter. About the only time a particular firearm would slow down the process is if they lost their records on it. Been known to happen.

    My stamps have all came back within 6 months. One only took 2 months. I think your better off just sending the paper work in and forgeting about it. The stamp will get there, it just takes forever sometimes.

    At what point does someone start auditing the paperwork?
