I asked at a local gunshop last week as a customer was getting his suppressor out of jail. He had done a paper Form 4 and his took 13 months. The shop owner told me the E-Forms are returning in ~120 days. I assume those are calendar days.

IIRC, the ATF people doing NFA stuff are divided up by geographical area. One dealer I used in the past mentioned the ATF person by name and said they had a good working relationship and could check the status of filings to make sure there wasn't any unusual holdup with a particular (paper) filing. I have no idea if the E-Filings work in a similar manner.

So do they work 7 days a week? I recall seeing an email mentioning that they are processing 7 days a week. Wonder it thats true?
Straight from the horse's ass:

ATF is currently applying additional overtime resources and providing an increased level of effort to the research and perfection of pipeline applications. ATF will continue to surge application processing 7 days a week.

Only the government could work seven days a week and not do shit.
