GA Arms has put up a new pre-home page announcement asking customers not to call or email them until at least 12 weeks have passed since an order was placed and reminding customers that they're not charged for an order until it ships.

I guess they're busy. Given the quality of their ammo, I'm not surprised.

I have been involved in many 'hobbies' in my lifetime but none with such a level of need for instant gratification.

Pretty obvious that G.A. is swamped with people calling them and it's become a major distraction in fact it's a major distraction to much of the industry (Windeners, Grafs, etc.) to deal with the tsunami of people calling...desperate and demanding.

Kinda flies in the face of good customer service but what are you gonna do?

Me too. I don't see a problem. Many AR manufacturers have put the same thing on their websites.

No big deal.

I have a scope on order with US Optics. Dont you know 12-16 weeks wait time is killing me I know their shit is top shelf so the wait is well worth it but damn I cant hardly wait.

So they're keeping you up to date on their turnaround times.

Better than no announcement...

Are they still using m249 brass for reloads or am I remembering things wrong? I know their ammo was blamed for more than one ruined AR a few years ago.

meh,

a long as they tell you your gonna have to wait awhile then it's no biggie.

Blamed? Ever proven?

I have been using their ammo for 15 years and no problems.

.223
.308
.45 ACP
.40 S&W
9x19

My carry ammo is +P JHP in both 9x19 and .45 ACP.

Their 175gr .308 BTHP is as accurate as any match ammo. Same for their 168gr BTHP.

I'd agree with them. People have to understand it takes time to get that stuff done. Its not made in a day.

I have always had good luck with their ammo.

yep, it's not my SHTF stash, but i've burned plenty of it ... i'd be willing to say 5-7k in a few diffrent ARs, back when things were cheap ... no issues at all

edit - all of it was the "canned heat" .223

I just drive over and see what is in the tiny showroom. Guess I am lucky

I may have to stop by on my way to Tennessee next week.

I've been trying to find the time to drive by there for a while now. I have used their .223 ammo with zero issues.
