What’s the Average Mailing Time for Approved ATF Tax Stamp Applications?

Once the ATF has approved your tax stamp application on an ATF Form 1 or an ATF Form 4, the ATF will mail your approved application to the applicant if applying on an ATF Form 1 and to your local gun store if applying with the ATF Form 4. You have waited many months by the time your tax stamp application gets approved by the ATF. But how long on average will it take for your approved tax stamp application to be mailed to you?  Your approved tax stamp application can vary from 5 business days to 2 to 3 weeks. The variation in time can depend on when the ATF mails the approved tax stamp applications. Approved tax stamp applications may not ship the same day that they are approved.
