Let me know how long you waited to get a Barrel or Complere Upper from Bushmaster?

I placed an order for a [i]20" A3 'Flat-top' National Match Target Model Upper Receiver / Barrel Assembly[/i] in a pre-ban configuration, along with a half dozen other things on May 31st, a Saturday. I received a UPS pick-up conformation on the 3rd of June, and everything arrived on the 10th. I was told to expect 3 weeks, but when I called to check back in on Monday they said I hit the front of a wave of recently completed barrels, so I could expect it to be much shorter. Beginner's luck, I guess [:D]

I recently ordered an M4 Dissipator barrel assembly. They advised me that it would probably take about 8 to 10 weeks to deliver, due to their backlog. I received it in just 4 weeks! Seth

4 to 6 weeks is common.

Had my M4 upper in 4 days. Unfortunately, they didn't permanently affix the $#%@ing phantom FS I purchased with it so back it went. We'll see how long it takes now.

I exchanged a post ban mini-y comp barrel for a post ban ak barrel and it took about a month for it to arrive from the initial phone call to customer service. They even upgraded to a heavy barrel because those were due to arrive sooner.

I bought the HBAR 16" Dissapator and they told me they had none in stock and it would take 4 to 6 weeks to fill the order. The barrel arrived in the mid-3rd week!

I was told 30 days on my postban 20" A3 complete upper. It shipped in 14 days from the day I ordered it. Add three days UPS ground and you've got 17 days total.

I ordered a bunch of spare parts 5/31 got all in within a week accept the Bolt carrier Assembly. 5 days later I ordered a pre-ban 20" gov profile and a A3 upper housing assembly, got both in 3 business days. The bolt carrier is still backorderd. After Calling them last Friday they told me that their supplier was currently out due to the 2 military actions (Afghan and Iraq) and it would be a week or 2 more for it to show up. Yes it sucks but I would rather see the troops supplied then get pissed that it isn't here yet. Try ordering a TA31F, I have been waiting 2 weeks for that and will probably wait another 2 before it shows if not more. Not to mention the price is supposed to have gone up per Sable.

Just ordered a varminter upper about three weks ago; it got here about two weeks ago! =) Only took a week or less to get here.

A week and a half.

My 16" lightweight barrel got here eight days after I ordered it by phone.

What about complete rifles??? I just ordered a CMP match rifle today. S'pose I'll get it as quick as y'all got your stuff? Anybody else order one recently?

it took 2 over months to get my 14.5 fluted upper and they over indexed the barrel to where it was 21 clicks right of center for sighting in at 25 meters and they forgot to permantly attach the phantom flash hider,but i would still buy another bushmaster,i called customer service and they are taking care of all the problems and they are paying for the shipping,

ordered a preban 16" HBAR on 03/15/03 and recieved the barrel 06/13/03. it took me calling them four times and on the final call, asking why in the hell there are major distributors(davidson) advertising reciept of large orders when i can't even get one barrel. the last time i ordered from them i had the barrel in less than two weeks. it's bullshit that i even had to bring it up, i'm very disappointed with my latest experience.

Ordered a 16" HBAR pre-ban upper on May 19, received it today, June 16.

16" M4 preban barreled upper--FIVE (5) MONTHS and a few days. Just got it last week. This has to be a record. If not, somebody tell me, 'cause I think I'm being picked on, and need some sympathy (prefearably from the female AR15.com'ers, please). I'm gonna get even with Bushmaster by putting it on a lower (preban, naturally) and shooting the bejesus out of it next week. That'll show 'em.

Ordered an A2 upper through their website, took exactly 8 days to have the thing in my house.

I guess I'm on the outside end of the norm. Ordered a Superlight weight (SLA) 16 inch post-ban barrel on 03/11 and I'm still waiting for it. I touch base every 4 weeks and still can't get a firm date. Hopefully towards the end of this month, but we'll see......

I've ordered a couple of complete uppers and lowers from Bushmaster through my local dealer. Never waited more than a couple of weeks. That doesn't mean the situation hasn't changed in the last 6 months... which was when I ordered my most recent lower.

M4 Flat-top with knife holder..3 weeks,two thumbs up.

I ordered five barrels once, and they shipped the next day.

I ordered a 14.5 M4 upper with a Phantom FS. I ordered online and I think it took about 6 days. I was pleasantly surprised because it came with the old style Phantom (forked end) when they were already advertising the new style. I've always had great service from Bushmaster.....that's why they continue to get my business. -REAPER2502

Ordered the same upper as Reaper, an M4A3 w/phantom and no carry handle. Took 5 weeks and then they sent a 14.5 HBAR with carry handle and charged me the extra $99.95. Called them and was told to return upper and they would "expedite" the correct upper to me. That was 4 weeks ago. Posted this problem in the Bushmaster Industry Forum, didn't even get the courtesy of a response. Needless to say this is my last dealings with Bushmaster.

I don't feel so bad now...I ordered a super light barrel assy four weeks ago, and I sent them an E-mail last week asking about the order: "4 to 6 weeks" was the answer. Hey, it Bushmaster quality, I can wait for it to be done right.
