"We often talk about the past year and a half inside the world of the National Firearms Act (NFA) as being difficult for manufacturers, distributors and dealers. Not that we need reminding, but proposed legislation as well as the new application processes imposed in mid 2016 have created a bit of turmoil, mostly for the silencer community. But consumers have also been hurt by extraordinarily long wait times, causing many to remain on the sidelines until the backlog clears.

Hopefully the days of year-long approvals are coming to a close. As a follow up to our story on the Silencer Shop Form 1 service in which we outlined the new “EFile” system, I am happy to report that my short barreled rifle (maker) application submitted in mid June was approved in late October. A four month turnaround is certainly an improvement from the abysmal wait times of recent past."
