Latest Class III: Guesses on Wait Time

Recommended Posts

Well, my new Gemtech GSG suppressed .22 has arrived. I signed the paperwork today. This is not my 1st C3 and in addition, I have a C&R and am a former army officer. Think it'll be 6 months? Should have it by Christmas.


Picked it up yesterday. Come to find out, they lost the original paperwork and my FFL had to resubmit.

C&R, multiple class 3 owned and former military make no difference in the NFA game. It takes as long as it takes, and that depends on your examiner as much as luck and your paperwork being 100%. My last F4 (suppressor) took 5 months, the one before that (MG) took 11 months, the one before that (suppressor) took 3 months.

I had a form 4 suppressor clear in 3 weeks back in the spring, this summer another form 4 suppressor took 3 months, plus another month for them to make it to the mailbox.

Any idea how long it takes to get to pending status once the ATF receives the paperwork? Just send mine off today. And the wait begins....

Mine took about a month to go pending - this past summer. You should see the check cashed in a few days and then (probably) 3 to 4 weeks later it will go pending. I'd wait a couple of months from the time you send it until you call to check the status.

Just checking this part of forum and seen I forgot to check in. My last one was 3 months and 1 week. I never have checked on one, never saw a reason for it. In fact I forgot I had the last one out when I got the call. When my wife said the store had called, it took me a moment to figure out why. So far I have never had one take longer than 4 months, and I have only bought in stock items.
