No, they aren't.

In the 10+ years I've been an FFL/SOT, ATF NFA Division has NEVER told dealers what "to say".

Where do ya[ll get this stuff?

This is exact wording given to me by my dealer

I'm not making up anything.

I asked about the 3 month thing when I paid for 2 suppressors and was informed " it is taking longer to get them back. I am told to say 3 months"

If it takes 6 months I will be fine with it as my last one was paper and took over a year.

P.S. Don't shoot the messenger.

Well, they may be told to say 3 months but I am over 6 months now. My dealer said they are averaging 8 months for eform 4 transfers for him.

I just filed my eForm 4 yesterday with Murdoch's, through SilencerShop.

My eForm 3 took 22 days. The entire time the SilencerShop wait time page said 8 hours to 8 days wait.

The lady at Murdochs told me they submitted their first eForm 4s on March 28th last year and got the first approvals on January 6th this year. That's 284 days, or 9.33 months.

She hasn't even been able to log in to the system reliably for at least a couple weeks. SilencerShop also has a popup about such problems with the ATF system.

The lady at Murdoch's speculated that the current problem is "related to the bump stock thing...".

Who knows.

I just received notification that status changed to approved for the 3 I have in the system.

Roughly 6 months. I'm a happy camper.

Suppressor itself is awesome (Silencerco Omega 36m).
