    After over 12 weeks the dealer to dealer transfer finally cleared and I got to hold my Yankee Hill Integrally Suppressed 10/22 barrel in my hands.

    Got the paperwork filled out and will get it sent in as soon as I can get the Chief to sign off on it. The good news is the dealer that is handling the transfer has an indoor range so I can take the host over and shoot it...just can't take it home.

    Hopefully next week I will get over there, get it mounted to the receiver, and will be able to shoot it, get it basically sighted in, play with it, and do a range report. At least the weather sucks so I am not chaffing at the bit to get it out to my range...

    Actually I was talking about the barrel...The rifle I have had since this past summer. I was just amazed it took so long for the dealer to dealer transfer. If that is any indication of how long the dealer to buyer wait time is I might be looking at 6-8 months or longer.

    Wow that is a long time for a form 3. I bought a silencer, recently, then decided I didn't want it when it got to my dealers. That transfer (form 3 distributor to dealer) only took about 5 or 6 weeks.

    Good luck with your form 4. I have one submitted, right now, also. I went the trust route and am hoping that shaves a few weeks off. We'll see :)

    Edit to add - that's a really slick set up you've got there. I like that khaki hogue (that's what it is right?)

    If you want to talk about a long wait for a Form 3, my dealer just received my SBR a couple weeks ago after a 10 1/2 MONTH wait. I bought it from an out of state dealer on December 6th, 2010, and it made it to my dealer October 27th, 2011. I was less than impressed.

    I only hope the Form 4 doesn't take as long. I've read that they're averaging about 5 months total.

    Just out of curiosity, why bother getting a suppressor for a rifle chambered in .22LR? They're already pretty quiet. Was it more of a, "Well, why not?" kinda thing? Or was there something else to it?

    22 is AWESOME when suppressed! Its one of (if not THE) most commonly suppressed calibers. Mainly, because u can achieve "Hollywood quiet" fairly easy with it.

    ETA- also, a 22lr is not hearing safe without a can. So, having a suppressor eliminates the need for hearing protection.
