Ordered my YHM Mite back in AUGUST 2009 it took a few months to come it then filled out the paperwork in December 2009. Picked up my Mite yesterday April 2010.

I saved a few $$$ by ordering from a non stocking dealer. I think the best bet is to buy from a "Stocking" Dealer and save a few months of waiting....

BATF wait time

How can you find out if your BATF Form 4 paperwork has gone pending or been approved? Mine arrived at the BATF office on April 23. I know to be patient and expect a lenghty wait time but was just curious as to if there was a way to track the progress.

@CDE
See page 4 of the Form 4 instructions:
8. Status Inquiries and Questions. Information relating to the NFA and other firearms laws is available at the ATF Internet website at www.atf.gov . Any inquiry relating to the status of an application to transfer an NFA firearm or about procedures in general should be directed to the NFA Branch at (304) 616-4500. Please be aware that any dissemination by ATF of information relating to the application to register an NFA firearm must conform with the restrictions in 26 U.S.C. § 6103. The opportunity provided in item 8 to authorize ATF to disclose information is intended to enable ATF to respond to inquiries by the transferee regarding the application. The failure to complete item 8 will be considered a declination of authorization to release the information.

CDE, check with your dealer.

When I got my last suppressor, the dealer provided me with a contact number and what to ask. I got to know one of the agents...I guess he was the unlucky one to answer the phone!!! It helped a bunch when he realized that I was a retired Fed!!

Also, if the dealer did not mark on the form that they could speak with you...they will not!

New to this forum, hello everyone. I like guns etc, etc.

Form 4 for a suppressor

Check cashed 03/10/10
Went Pending 04/09/10

Talked to a gentleman today at ATF and was told they are no longer giving out average wait times per his boss's instructions. Too many phone calls asking a perfectly legitimate question so I was told.

Hope to learn a few things while I'm here so thanks in advance.

I believe my dealer mailed everything off in January, and my check has not been cashed yet. This is for a Form 4. This seems ridiculous. Has anyone heard of a wait this long just for the check to clear? My dealer WILL NOT give me my serial number to call in and ask what the deal is.

I've had checks and credit cards into ATF, and they are always charged/deposited the same day they arrive at ATF. Very fast.

Not so fast at refunding $$$.
I charged my FFL on a card, finally got a small refund check in the mail 45 days later.

Status?

How are you finding the status of your Form 1's and Form 4's?

I'm just starting the waiting process for a pair of SBR builds.

Thanks.

Last transfers

Form 4 for Outback II and SWR HEMS II

Paperwork filled out for BOTH on 5/16/2009
CLEO signoff for both on 6/4/2009
Both Form 4's mailed to ATF 6/5/2009
Pestered the ATF guy ALOT!!!
Dealer marked "I Do" on line 9 allowing me to speak with the ATF Agents.
Pending on the Outback July 2009
Pending on the HEMS August 2009
Sign off on both form 4's by ATF official Jason M. "Something"
Outback 9/24/2009 and the Hems II 10/15/2009.
Mailed from ATF THREE WEEKS LATER!!!!!
Dealer got the Outback Paperwork 10/22/2009
Dealer got the HEMS paperwork 11/16/2009.

I am looking to get a 9mm Trident and I don't really know how long it will take this time.

I have had two dealers tell me that it helps if the dealer has a good working relationship with the examiner...who knows though!
