Form4 Trust

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

All NFA laws apply.

Form4 Trust

Post by cyclone72 » Tue May 05, 2015 4:36 pm

I sent my forms in on March 7th but it didn't go pending till May 1st. Does this sound normal? It was for a trust, form 4 on a can.

Use your check cashed date,and with current wait times, begin getting antsy if you don't see a response in ~90 days. Pending dates received when calling are dependent on who answers the phone...

I thought they stopped giving pending dates, only check cashed dates.

The nfatracker trend graph goes by check cashed date also. Uh oh... approval times have actually been increasing lately.

They still tell you a pending date but the definition has changed. It used to be when your form was assigned to an examiner, now I think it is the date they deposit your check, since most pending dates are now a day or two before the check is cashed in your bank account.

My last F4 was check cashed 2/1 and approved on 4/17 so you got a little wait yet.

Yeah, I'm not sure what is going on anymore.
I sent my F-4 (Trust) in on 2/4, received 2/5.
When I called in March to verify they had it, I was told Pending as of 2/9.
When I called mid April, I was told Pending as of 3/31.
Yesterday I called and was told Pending as of 2/9.
Each time I spoke with a different person.

So I'm just going to wait and see.
BTW, I sent a USPS money order for payment and the Post Office, still, has no record of it being cashed.

Hopefully, I will get my can, a Specwar 7.62, this month some time.

Believe the 2/9 date. That's when your MO was cashed. The 3/31 date might have been the real internal pending date assigned to an examiner... given out by accident.

I hope this may apply to me as well.
