About 2 weeks ago I ordered some small parts from Del Tron.
I think 4 offset bushings and one offset pivot pin.
I just called and was told that it will be another 3 weeks before they ship.
Is this normal for Del Tron????
Six weeks to ship very small parts?
Are they going under or something?
Anyone else have this experience????

What rock have you been hiding under? Are you aware that here was an election recently where a self-avowed gun-banner won resulting in buying panic nationwide?

It's not Del Tron, Del Ton.

Really, no offense, but you must have been sleeping for the past 3 weeks.

Go to the Industry forum....then the Del-Ton forum...check the thread called "Order Dates" and enjoy the hillarity. It's a madhouse.

No rock here....I would give your answer some consideration, if other orders placed with other like vendors, at the same time, had not already arrived.
Del Tron or Del Ton ...still six weeks BEFORE shipping, I think thats ...well you know, kinda crappy.

I think Del-Ton is filling orders for rifles first. So all parts on hand are being used to build complete rifles. Another reason for the rush at Del-Ton is there prices are very good, so everyone's going with the cheapest vendor for parts. They are also honoring each order in the order received.

I just wonder if NDS is experiencing the same madness for retro lowers ?

For the $200 plus price of many lowers out there, the NDS lowers are the best deal going in my book.

You might try Gunbroker for the offset pins.

Those guys are wonderful, good prices, good parts and GREAT customer service. They must just be swamped with orders like everyone else right now.

Also realize these vendors are basically your typical mom & pop shops. No big fancy automated 10,000+ sq ft fully stocked warehouses here.

My parts are arriving tomorrow from a 11/5 order.

Some things are back-ordered.

Call them and ask.

They are only one day behind Bushmaster for me.

All I have from Del-ton is a lower, but the quality seems every bit as good as my RRA.

They cleaned us out of NDS-16A2 lowers pretty fast.

And now they are all collector's items.......Mike, now you just have to convince the modern AR crowd that an A1 lower looks great with an ubber tactical M4 upper on top of it. AND they come in black too!

Yes it's been busy, we are about a week behind at least.

Hey, I mailed a cashiers check last Wednesday - received an email today saying the NDS-16A1 shipped today. Doesn't get any better than that.

I'm doing all my buying from gun shows. I know what and when I'm getting parts. I'm a hands on kinda guy. I like to see what I'm getting.
