I efiled my form 1 On December 27, 2020. It was for a suppressor. I am on week four of waiting for approval. Just wondering if this is normal for a form 1 or should I be calling to see if there was an issue with mine?
I'd give them another week at least. I suspect that they got pretty busy with other priorities after the 6th.

Ive probably done 7 since August. All approved within a month .

Do not use a model name. N/A is fine. And if you do that you dont have to engrave N/A. Ive actually seen someone do that .

Serial numbers need a number

Do not submit plans.

If you frequently get delayed get a UPIN and you KNOW you arent screwing it up yourself there's someone out there with the same name doing wacky stuff.

I'm sure there's another common screwup but I cant think of what it is .

Finally got my form 4 back for my Q erector that was started in April. My other form 4 for OSS 7.62TI submitted 2 days later still on the merry-go-round.

Form 4's are a whole different world. Been 7-8 years since Ive done one. Easier to build once.
Absolutely agree on the easy part. Both form 4 cans had some things that were appealing to me and not readily available on a diy form 1 trap.

Site was painfully slow this time. Did one with the N/A as you stated. Thanks for the tip!

See how things go...

The one I did in January was as per usual, about a 5 minute process. This time, I sat on one screen for almost 10 minutes waiting for it to figure itself out.

I swear they do it on purpose.

I did use that time to look through all the model names people have come up with for their F1 cans. Some are rather hilarious.

They do it on purpose. That website is so abysmally bad you would have to do it on purpose for it to be that bad.


I saw a guys silencer the other day where yeah, he engraved "Model: N/A" on it.
