ATF Wait Times

What is the current wait time for a suppressor?

eForm 4 suppressor approvals are commonly taking a few days, for both individual and "standardized trust" submissions.

These are historically fast approval times, which ATF refers to as "the new normal."

What ATF form is needed for a suppressor?

ATF Form 4 is required for suppressors, SBRs, and any other NFA item. Silencer Shop makes submitting an eForm 4 fast and easy. An eForm 4 is an electronic filing of the ATF Form 4: the application to possess an NFA item manufactured, purchased, and ready to use by the consumer.
