Unfortunately, yes, 6 months. Which means my YHM 7.62 Phantom Ti stamp probably wont show up until March, and it was ordered and paid for in full back in Feb...

Six months is correct. I picked up my Smith Enterprise Wind Talker 556 can on Wednesday. My paperwork was sent June 22nd, my check cashed June 25th, I went pending July 7th, my stamp was approved December 5th, and the stamp arrived December 12th.

Good luck.

So then yours was quicker than 6 months, closer to 5 months.

It was a little quicker, but again it was not my first stamp.

Here is my new can.

I picked one up last night that was 6 months on-the-day. One that came in last month (for me) was a couple days over 5 months.

Rats, I was hoping to spend my Christmas week off playing with my new can. It will be my first stamp as well, F4 to trust. Check cashed July 9 and pending July 20.

My check was cashed June 19 for a 22 LR can. Still waiting for the dealer call that my stamp has arrived back at his store. That would be 6 months and about 2 days..... State is Michigan.

Pretty ridiculous.

I was very lucky, I dropped my paperwork in the mail on Sep 5th. On Nov 21st I got a call from the dealer saying that my "tax stamp" came in and I could pick my suppressor up anytime. It took me about 10 minutes to get to the shop and get it.
The whole process took exactly 11 weeks.

My suppressor went pending 7-11-12 and is still pending

I actually paid for the suppressor in late January 2012 but they had to custom build it (.458 caliber)

I have since bought a 22 Suppressor which is also in pending.
