I have a State Arms 50bmg on order. Anybody else have one currently on order? What has been your wait time current or quoted?

Thanks

The last time I talked to Larry his wait time was 6 months plus. That was in december. Larry doesn't have any employes as far as I know it is just him and his son. He just doesn't crank them out like a commercial factory every gun is as good as the next one. Be patient it is well worth the wait.

I've been calling and emailing for a little bit now, just trying to place an order. I hate being the squeeky wheel, but it seems to be the right way to go in this instance.

I don't suppose anyone on here has an 'in'. I'm not looking to take cuts or anything, just looking for the end of the line.

Competitor is good buds with Larry. He's got at least 4 State Arms rifles. He might have an idea of what's up. As the other gent said, Larry is a one man shop. His son helps with the laminate stocks. That's it. Larry doesn't have a secretary. Doesn't have an answering service. If he's not answering the phone, its because he's running machines building guns. I've had difficulty reaching him myself and that was a couple years ago. Leave a message...be clear as to what you need (like "i'd like to place an order") and he'll call you back. May take a few days, but he'll call you back.

Ok, that sounds about right. I ordered at the beginning of October and he told me it would be about three months. It's going on six but I guess that's an acceptable range all things being considered. From what I read his rifles are worth the wait so I'm going to go ahead and do so.

I just received an email from Larry today that indicated he's taking about 8 months from order to delivery now. Just fyi.
Cheers,

I got a call from Larry this morning. Made my order.

I was thinking about the same, is payment due upfront or does it charge on shipping. I don't mind backordering stuff, or reasonable deposits.
