My BIL got the call yesterday morning 2/5/20 that his was ready to be picked up. Had his check cashed in late October, around a 3 1/2 month wait.

Meanwhile, I'm still waiting even though he did the exact same process I had months before at the same kiosk as I walked him through it.

I'd love to meet up with some of their workers and have some honest conversations on what they believe the problems are. How some folks like my BIL get theirs so quick over others like myself who did the exact same paperwork, kiosk, etc. are still waiting.

From the outside looking in it makes them look very inept overall and/or some workers have their nose to the grind stone and churn their stack out while (most) others seem to spend too much time at the water coolers.

EXPECT IT is all I can say...

Same thing happened to me and Woodstock, he submitted his SBR before mine, mine was even REJECTED, resubmitted, and I got mine before his by over a month or 2???

No logic

I had my check cashed on 4/17/19 and still waiting. My buddy had his in a month before mine and......still waiting! He just called ATF and they said probably 10 months wait, while our gun store says they have been seeing 8 months. I sure hope mine gets here first of January when we start pounding coyotes.
Check for my Socom68 Form 4 individual was also cashed on 4/17/19, and I'm still waiting. Have you received yours yet?

still waiting on stamp to come in..
FFL is my buddy, so got him to call and ask about why it hadnt been delivered in over a month, and they told him it was mailed 4/9/20.

Has any body had similar experience with waiting over a month for stamp after its approval?

Just dropped my fingerprints in the mail for a Form 1 SBR. Built my Form 1 suppressor earlier this year and love it, but need a shorter rifle to tromp through the brush after those pigs now.

New Mexico gun shops can now do business on an appointment only basis. So now only have to wait until dealer receives stamp.

I don't understand the wait; 30, 40 days or so and your check is cashed; your approved,, Is the next seven to eleven months a wait to see if we will change our mind on the purchase? I was and am prepared for the year wait but but I still don't like or understand it....

What SHOULD happen is, the money goes into escrow, when THEY perform and everything is processed... THEN they get paid. Just like the rest of the real world. This nonsense of paying them up front and then waiting for them to get off their lazy arses and take their time... that's B.S. That's why I refuse to play that whole stamp game. Incompetence should never be rewarded like this.

It is all about CONTROL. If it was a money thing they would just put a $25 tax on each one and make a mint.

Actually, I believe that it all started as control AND money. When the stamps were first required, that $200 fee was a LOT of money. The average Joe wouldn't've been able to afford the stamp.

Exactly, what better way to control a population than place a $200 tax on something when the average income was a whopping $1160 a year or a bit more than two months pay at the time it was enacted? At that rate it would be a tax of about $11,000 today. Just make it too expensive to afford and you then control. Not trying to start an argument just emphasizing the fact that it is all about control. Now rather than tax it they just want to ban it so even stricter control.

No arguments here my friend... I agree on the control... but was laced with greed as well.
