Well, I did not want to give false hope to anyone but my dealer told me he's had a few recently come through in 2 weeks.... and a few in the past take 8 months. On average though, 6-8 weeks seems to be the number I keep seeing. After that, 6 months seems to be the pretty average turnaround for the stamp.
I have also heard those rumors that more examiners were being hired. I hope that it's true.
