I have 2 at are 9 months in, I just called on them and still not approved.

One of those was screwed up by Silencer Shop. I had to figure out there was a problem and track it down to them having never submitted my paperwork. So one of those 2 was started 16 months ago but only 9 months since the check cleared and it entered the system.

Well it looks like the ATF has finally wised up and has done something that they swore they would never do to help with their backlog. I go batch processed with 4 different form 4 individual stamps from 2 different dealers all came in at the same time today. They were all put in at different times ranging from 12-5 months ago. One of the dealers said another guy got 5 in at the same tome today.

I still have an outstanding E-filed from 4 trust that is 56 days old and was not rolled up in to this clean out.

They've been doing that for the last couple years though it seems to be very hit and miss. Not everyone lucks out with the batch approvals but it's definitely been happening.

Although this thread is a little dated, I thought I'd update my recent experience.

With new e-file system and filing thru Silencer Shop, I submitted a Form 4 for a suppressor on Jan 17th and was approved 93 days later. The goal of the new ATF e-File System is approval under 90 days. FYI
