Ops-Core lead times (Page 1 of 2)
Arrow Left Previous Page
Page / 2
Posted: 7/20/2020 5:32:22 PM EDT
I ordered a bump the other day through GenTex, lead times are stated up to 16 weeks.

Never done anything with Ops-Core before, how are their lead times per their estimations? Should I count on 16 weeks minimum, or does their stuff usually come in a bit sooner?

They are swamped, I wouldn't be surprised if it took longer.

I'd keep an eye out for dealers like Weapon Outfitters, Optactical, and of course TNVC to get some in stock. I was lucky and got a carbon helmet from WO.

This is a good comment, and how I got my FAST MT, I think they may have been getting rid of the last lineups though, so you are probably not going to see the SF models.

I spoke to Weapon Outfitters today and they said 22 weeks is what they were quoted by Gentex.

I just ordered off Gentex and used a coupon code to save some money. Now the wait begins.  At least my TNVC nods will get here before my helmet

They had the same one I ordered in stock a week ago, I made the mistake of not ordering one since I had already placed the order through Gentex. Then I realized that I might get the tubes before the helmet.

Went back to order and out of stock 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

I'd settle in for a lllooonng wait. I placed an order with them for a carbon helmet March 8th -- still have yet to see it. Last comms from them indicated it should be here mid July. Hopefully I'll get notification any day now In their defense, I did place the order right before everything went to shit over C19 fears. Plus, they have delivered the AMP and step-in visor I ordered. Ordered the AMP mid March, received about 2 weeks ago. Ordered the visor end of March, had in hand less than 2 weeks later.

Arms Unlimited had some bumps in stock two days ago.  They show some ballistic helmets in stock.  I know that’s not what OP is after, just an fyi

My ballistic SF took 6 months almost on the dot.

I placed an order for a Tan Fast XP helmet in XXL on July 3rd and from what I am gathering it's usually about 6 months or so. Let us know if you get yours early, there might be hope for the rest of us .

I ordered an SF from RTS Tactical, shipped in a couple days, but only because they needed to validate my address. Came out to near the same price as ordering from Gentex, but I received it in less than a week. Dunno if they had any bumps, but worth a look.

Great vendors, but there's a discount code when buying from Gentex directly, not to mention the sizes/colors available from most vendors are such slim pickens it's often hard to get what you need (which is certainly not the fault of the vendor).

I opted to just buy from the source, getting a Ops-Core FAST Bump High Cut Helmet in foliage green at my size on 7/1 at a $60 discount, which is still awaiting fulfillment.

If I get it before 2021, I'll be happy based on what I've heard about their lead times.

Won't matter anyways, since I ordered a hand-select PVS-14 from @TNVC a couple weeks ago, which will take a while.

Yeah, honestly, seems like they pretty much only carry larges and in FDE for the most part.

20+ weeks.    Prices have also gone up since April.

I don’t think there is a  rhyme or reason. I ordered a SF ballistic and it was at my door 3 weeks from ordering. Who knows, I’m about to order an AMP and it will probably take a long time.

I bought an AMP at the same time, and purposefully ordered them separate.  The AMP was shipped within 2 weeks of being ordered.

Gear Central Supply has some multicam ballistic SFs in stock. I ordered earlier this week so will update when it arrives.
Edit- the new SF got here today and I am impressed. It is much more stable than my TW and overall a very nice helmet.

My advice is order from dealers and buy their in-stock stuff.

Currently we are whiskey cept for Tan Amps and accessories, but in the meantime, figure out your sizing so you can strike fast on in stock helmets

My order status on the Gentex website just went to "Awaiting shipment" and they charged my card for my FAST XP.  So I'm assuming that means my helmet is on its way?  I was expecting a 6 month lead time from what everyone here was saying.  Order placed Aug 26th

I'd be all over that. But their S/M is tiny.

Ordered a bump for now from Armsunlimted until I can find a sale/in stock on a ballistic.

Man you're lucky! I did a FAST XP in XXL in Tan. They charged me upfront and mine is stuck on Awaiting Fulfillment. I ordered early July and am predicting maybe a November/December arrival.
Enjoy, can't wait for mine to come.
