    I sent in my form 4 for a can. They recived it on january 21st 2013. I did a trust this time and not registered to my self. On my other transfers they cashed my check very fast. This time they have not even cashed it yet??? I dont think anything is wrong with my paper work as I looked it over 1000 times. I just find it weird. :paranoid:

    That is strange, the check is usually cashed pretty quickly. Maybe give them a call to check? Seems like they'd appreciate your helping them get your money ;)

    I thought I was the only one LOL. I sent in a pair of Form 1's back on the 15th, and they finally just went through today. Nearly two weeks. Not as long as you, but I would say yes there have been some delays lately. Of course I also have another check floating out there that was sent the same day that hasn't been processed yet, so maybe it was a postal problem. They have had a lot of bad weather and blizzards slowing things down on that side of the country.

    Considering the unusual period of time, I would say give them a call and see if they have the paperwork yet. I presume they would have some record of the serial number even if the check got lost or hasn't been sent through yet.

    The one I sent in a few weeks ago was just finally cashed, funny they used to cash them ASAP. Wish they had an online tracking system.

    Yes, definitely.

    My check was cashed less than 7 days after I put the forms in the mail, but I have read that a few people have had much longer time frame from mailing paperwork to check being cashed.

    Listed on the ATF web site, NFA branch phone# (304) 616-4500

    I was also just reading that Form 4's(transfers) go through the Atlanta office first, because that is where they process the money. Form 1's go through the NFA office in WV first so they can make sure there are no issues before they send the check down to Atlanta. That would account for some of the delay, but over a month is excessive. Give them a call and find out what is going on.

    I would call the NFA Branch. The number should be (304) 616-4500. You will need the serial number of the item you are calling about.

    Just got it back in the mail yesterday :( My dealer failed to mention that his form's were old and it was an old adress. Not only wasted money sending it in but wasted over a month of time.....I wont be using this dealer again.
