For those that have ordered a 2nd NFA item/suppressor on Form 4 (trusts), is there ANY less time for processing since they have current background checks, fingerprints already on file or are they starting from scratch EVERY single time you submit a new form 4?

got our first suppressor and my dad is already shopping for a new one. we decided to wait until the first item got approved so we were not re-doing multiple forms - now i wish i had just submitted the 2nd item instead of waiting.

thanks for input!

Purchased my DeadAir through Silencer Shop. BATF cashed the check on September 23, 2017. Picked up my suppressor on 04/09/2018.

Its like passports, security clearances and such. The efficiency is much greater depending on your status in the system. Another words, if you are fairly current on higher end investigations in the system it can be pencil whipped purdy fast.

Until then, you might have to shoot through a pool noodle.

Wouldn't that be nice? No, that's not how it works at all. You could file one form on Monday and another on Tuesday and they might end up going to two completely different examiners. I do think this article helps explain the current situation, including what one Texan has done to try to fix a broken system: http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...ss-modernized/

I just picked up a can last week. Check was cashed 9-22-17 and Form 4 approved 3-27-2018, so that's 186 or almost 6 months exactly.

Who did you do it through? I normally had it cashed within a week of it going off.

Default Form 4 Wait

Form 1 trust SBR stamp came in the mail yesterday!

Sent July 30th - Approved April 13th

Suppressor was purchased at the same time...hopefully stamp is not too far behind.

Then my suppressed 300BO SBR with thermal hog finisher will be complete for when my son starts Bowhunting

Well...Just got the call that my Form 4 stamp for my suppressor arrived today!!! As soon as I get my lower back from getting stamped, I will get to put it all together finally.

Suppressor was purchased end of May - I think that is around 10.5 mo. for a trust

Any recent approvals? I'm on day 203 (12/22/17 cashed date) for my F4. Called 6/22 and was told they were waiting on the FBI background check. Called 7/10 and got the same response. 18 days seems like a long time for a BG check...

My F3 last week was approved in 2 days.

F4 APPROVED 7/9/18! Checks cashed 12/30/17. Would've been weeks sooner had it not been for some corrections and a changed address...

Still awaiting F1.

Oh no. You have fallen into the FBI background check black hole.

hopefully not... but maybe. The process as I understand it is that all forms go through this FBI background check status as the last step before being approved. Sure, many get hung up in this status for various reasons, but not all do. 18 days kinda seems like a lot, but maybe not? I have an easy way to get out of the black hole if needed.
