Called to check on my stamps for the 4 suppressors I bought. Check was cashed October 29th, they told me to expect the stamps in May which is going to be about 7 months. I was hoping for late April but I guess I get what I get. Sucks but that's the way it is.

be prepared for 7 months, hope for 6 months, be thrilled with 5 months. my last can went pending the end of August and took roughly 5 and a half months. would have been 5 months on the dot without the error and resubmittal that wasted two weeks.

We are pretty much in the same boat then as that is just about the time my check was cashed. I want pending one month later on Nov 27th, any idea on yours?

This will be interesting as we are in different zones; perhaps a good way of monitoring differences between examiners, provided there's no issues of course. See you in May (hopefully sooner)?

Common consensus around here is now that they've added 9 or 19 examiners the wait time should drop to 4 months or so.

I am hoping all four stamps come at the same time. I don't know if they review separately or lump them together. They were all in he same packet sent in. These last couple of months are going to be harder to tolerate than the first five.

I called to check on my form 1 on Thurs. I got an answering service that asked for a name, call back number and the serial number. Form was sent on Nov 1st and my check cashed roughly 10 days later. This was my first call to the NFA and only getting an answering machine wasn't encouraging wonder if their on furlough? Oh well hurry up and wait some more, good luck fellas.

You are doing it wrong. You need to buy something new every month, before you know it something new will be approved every month.

There is hope; I saw on TV this morning scientists have figured out how to grow new organs from undifferentiated cells :)
