I decided to treat myself for recently passing my comprehensive exams by taking advantage of the DeadAirArmament special.....and purchased a Sandman S and Ghost 45. Well, now the wait begins again.
Damn ATF and their weird processing times. I purchased both at the same time but got my stamp back for the Ghost (I'm happy, but was hoping to pick up both together).
Ghost 45 purchased on: 8/28/18
Form 4 Tax Stamp Cashed on: 9/6/18
From 3 Disposed to dealer on: 12/11/18
Stamp Approved on: 8/13/19
Picked it up on: 8/22/19

I'm hoping the Sandman S will come in sometime next week.

Got my last stamp in the pipeline yesterday. Was surprised by the call. Thought it would be another month at least.
Gemtech Patrolman suppressor

Check cashed 11/8/18
Approved 8/20/19
Stamp received 8/26/19
291 days (9.5 mo.) total

Looks like the times are starting to come down some finally.

Don't plan on getting anything else at this point. I might reconsider if wait times ever get back below 90 days. :th_sign0095:

Congrats Heavy, thinking about getting back into the pool, was it paper, trust?

Form 4 paper filing as individual. I decided not to do any more stamps on my trust since 41F. Probably have all the NFA stuff I need in the foreseeable future so didn't want to go through the hassle doing the trust bs for just one more item.

That makes me feel a little better. Had a check cashed in mid-December 2018 and when I called the other day she said try back in 8-10 weeks. Was also a form 4 individual done through silencer shop. Sounds like 4-6 weeks might be a possibility.

BATF received my 3 form 1s on March 25 2019, I just got my 3 tax stamps today in the mail , Six months and two days. 2 cans and 1 SBR, form 1 mailed in with an attached Gun Trust. I just put together my SBR all ready to go, and going to start the Suppressors on after the weekend. While I am happy I have my 3 stamps, I still don't approve of the process, and the violation of my 2nd Amendment Rights.

Well here I am again. Update... 3 more of the can's have been APPROVED and Stamps received as of Today. They were processed in only 140 days! via my trust. The E-filed Form 1's to SBR have also been APPROVED.

MP5
Kriss Vector 9mm
Liberty Constitution (5.56 dedicated can)
Liberty Cosmic .45
SiCo Osprey .45

Still waiting on the following from April 9th with payments processed April 13th - All 3 stamps came back on the same day March 9th from 2 different examiners! March 2nd and March 3rd were the days they were approved and stamps in hand on the 9th so they got mailed quickly!
OSS Elite 556
OSS Elite 762
Barrett QDL (M107a1 .50bmg)

Maybe these will get processed faster since I've had multiple stamps approved within the past month!!??? :Blah:::0:::-D::FF::
Well they didn't get processed faster that is for damn sure <argg>! But I got the last 3 stamps this past Monday so 335 days from acceptance to stamps in hand for these last 3 cans <whew> ....But they are now in my custody!

Form 1 (e-filed) via Trust

Filed:02/23/2020
Approved: 03/19/2020

I have two others filed the same day, hopefully they're in the works.

That was the fastest Form 1 I've ever had, even faster than the pre-41F ones from a few years back.

Thats pretty amazing, makes me want to give it a whirl. I haven’t been on the eFile site, I’m guessing the fingerprints and pictures are uploaded and attached to the application?

The trust and completed Form1 and 5320.23 (with pics). are uploaded. When you complete the submission, you get a cover letter with the submission email. You mail that in with your fingerprint cards.

Nice, I like the timeline. Now all I need is Picts of the new SBR/SBS when they’re complete so I’m really motivated to get back in the pool.
You sure have a heck of a stable Scott.

I plan on these stamps being my last, but then again I've said that so many times that I really don't believe it myself any more.

I slapped all three together yesterday afternoon:



I'm really happy with how the S2 Scorpion came out. I dropped the faux suppressor and added a 3-lug mount. An Octane 45 fits in there perfectly.



The other two are just shorty (10.5") AR's. Nothing special, but very handy. I may get one of those CMMG 5.7 uppers eventually. They seem to have pretty positive feedback.

This NFA BS has to end! It is certainly an infringement. No arms should be taxed, ever.

When I lived in Germany you couldn't hunt without a suppressor. We are truly deprived in America.

I really have struggled to save my hearing since I was age 6 and I avoid any exposure to loud sounds like the Chinese Virus!

I tried to select one can that would do it all this time. But I can see I can use more. I. too, swore this would be the last time I gave them $200 and WAITED. But I can see folks are getting theirs after 13 months!

Certainly, Trump opening his yap about not liking them after that oil can incident did NOT help things. I am not sure whose side he is on!

That Scorpion is making my pants tight. :-D

In all seriousness it looks sweet.

Very nice Gun Porn Scott, thanks for the pictures.
