July 8 (2016) is the last I've heard of being approved (on another forum). You're really close.

I paper filed as well. They received my application on July 12th, 2016. Check cashed a few days later, and I am still waiting on my stamp, too. This wait has been ridiculous.
***Edit***
I called BATFE on 5-5-17, and she said my Form 1 was approved on 4-25-17. She said it should have been mailed out and I should be receiving it any day now.

Just called to check in on mine. I guess they received my paper application on July 22nd and its pending. Currently they're on July 10.

Customer service agent said that it's been so busy that processing one day of forms was close to $1M of transactions. So sad.

There's probably something like 100,000 forms to go through during the July 10-12 timeframe so don't hold your breath...

Well I wanted to efile, but the website got overloaded prior to the deadline and crashed, so I had no choice to paper file.

Ha, was just implying there were a ton filled that last week or so up to the deadline. Don't have any hard numbers. Someone did calculate the forms sent out solely by silencer shop (biggest generator of form 4's from my understanding) and it was multiple truck beds full leading up to July 12..whatever that equates to. There's a pic floating around on I think arfcom.

Wow I wonder why it was so busy last summer. What is this deadline you speak of? After reading back a few pages I will expect not 12 month wait either way I file anything less I will be happy.

Well, I submitted two eForm 1's in June 2016.

1. AR15 - Submitted 06/13/2016 - APPROVED 01/30/2017

2. SAM7SF - Submitted 06/28/2016 - APPROVED 03/13/2017


TODAY 05/12/2017 - I just submitted via USPS Priority/ Returned Receipt a Form 1 for my SLR106UR. I'm going to assume a 12 month wait.

My form 4 stamp came in this week. I definitely mailed that bad boy off after the 41f rule went into effect. I'm not sure how much you can tell about expected form1 times based on a single form4. But they are at least some of the ATF guys getting through that big early-July rush.

Just checked the mail, and there it was! My tax stamp finally arrived. Now I can get on with chopping and crowning my 104UR. I'll put up pics in the Krinkov section after it's done. You other guys still waiting on your stamps, hang in there. There is light at the end of the tunnel.

All speculation but I presume once they clear the 41p backlog wait times will return to normal. How long that takes is anyone's guess but it seems they are getting closer for sure. I'd be interested to see how fast the august-December submissions get turned around once they clear July.

I stopped by the CLEO Office today to hand deliver a copy of the BATF Form 1 and BATF Form 5320.23.

The secretary looked me and said: "What are we suppose to do with these?"

I told the CLEO secretary that per BATF regulations (41P), I am required to provide notification to the CLEO of the proposed making or acquisition and possession of the firearm described in the BATF Form 1.

The secretary just looked at me and said "hmmm... we never received these paperwork before or any memo from the ATF regarding this, but ok I'll send if off to the chief."

I told her that I was just following what BATF required me to do...

I don't know about your state but you don't even need to go to those lengths. Just mail it and you're done. Signed or registered if you like but personally I wouldn't even do that. Have the post office guy postmark it, photograph it and that is proof you did what is required. From there it's not your responsibility.
Because in your situation they are probably thrown away. They have no obligation to retain those.

Both the USPS and PD is just 7-10 blocks from my house. PLUS, the USPS is just 1/2 a block from the PD. I might as well just hand deliver it.

Yup, July 9th here x2. I called and the guy on the phone told me that he's got no damn idea since I e-filed it. He told me that I would receive an email most likely withing the next month or so. I know better than to bitch or complain, so I politely thanked him, and then did my cussing AFTER I hung up the phone. It will be here when it gets here, sadly. I hate having to buy my rights back in the form of a "license."

Two e-files on 7-9-16. One approved 5-16-17. 311 days. Hopefully the other will be only a few more days.

Dang, it's only been day 4 since I submitted the Form 1 for my SLR106UR. BATF already cashed in my $200 check. If only BATF is that quick to review, approve and mail my Tax Stamp back to me... Ya right, eh!!

I guess today is OFFICIALLY the day that the 8-12 month wait begins..

Filed on 7/9/16 Approved on 5/8/17
314 day wait
104ur
I'm just glad the waiting is over!
What I did to help pass the time was to totally forget that I even had the 104ur. I wrapped it up and hid it in the back of the safe so I couldn't see it when/if I opened the safe door.

It's a fact that the older you get the faster times goes by right out the window.

Submitted two Form 1's on 07/09/2016

Approved on 05/16/2017
Approved on 05/18/2017

Still trying to figure it all out. It says it's approved, but the form that they emailed has "draft" written across the page.

Write back telling them you got a draft copy. They will email a corrected pdf.

That happened to me several times. You can email BATF letting them know that they sent you an approved eForm 1 with the word "DRAFT" watermarked across the eForm 1. You can request for BATF to send you another eForm 1 without the "DRAFT" watermark.

Geez. I sent my form 1 4/21/17. They charged my card 4/29/17. I added my business card. I will let you know if that helps. Likely wont. I really don't want to another 280 days.

Sorry to be a downer, but I'd expect 10-12 months.

Damn, I usually surf here on my tablet and it's auto correct. I apologize about that fellas, no, they were approved this past week in 2017.

Thanks for the advice on getting real copies and not drafts. I'll get that squared away on Monday.
