How many here "thought" you had something ordered, mags, ammo, parts, etc then after waiting a week or two for it to ship, only to find out your not getting the item? Pmags  seem to be the worst from what I can see followed by any HC AR or AK mag closely followed by ammo.  I'm pretty well stocked and not on a panic buy, just my normal order routine... Thanks to "Barry" and this is only the beginning!!

Yep, better get used to it. Luckily most of us paranoids were buying as soon as Hilary announced her campaign.

I am good to go!

I just ordered 10 pmags and they were on my doorstep in 3 days. I'm picking a couple lowers up from my FFL tomorrow.

Are you sure you're ordering right?

This is what happens to supply and availability when there's a 400-800% increase in demand.
Link Posted: 11/19/2008 5:51:43 PM EDT
Primers are the only thing that recently I've found a little difficulty in getting. I can get the right size but maybe not in the brand I normally use.

Someone on another forum I frequent about reloading said their distributor told them they had gone thru 80 MILLION primers since the election and that was about a week ago I read that.

I just ordered 15 Pmags (in stock) about 30 minutes ago. It sounds like you're
actually believing the hype. Don't let all these BS threads discourage you.

Ordered AK mags from Cope's on the 10th, delivered today though the items were removed from the site the day after order was placed.

Previous order was for mags last month, came in 3 days.

I beleive there will be a temporary shortage until the distributors/importers get in gear and match demand.

Price is a consideration and I try to support the Industry partners here. I am, good to go, but I shoot quite a bit and like to keep my "inventory" above certain levels. I buy about once a month as needed.

Link Posted: 11/19/2008 6:03:40 PM EDT
I orderd 20 PMAGS about two weeks ago and have heard nothing since.  Not worried too much but hope they are at the house before the end of the year.

There's no BS. My main dealer is out of EVERY semi auto 223. I asked him for 100 PMags and he said, "I might be able to get 5, and there is a long backorder line ahead of you."
He told me they may get 200 in and then 50 representatives fight over them for their customers.

The reasoning behind the panic buying may be bullshit, but the effects are very real.
I barely snagged a Barrett 99 and had to find a Armalite AR10 locally.
Good luck.

My local shop has a full wall of in stock ARs and few hundred Cprod mags laying around.

They seem to have priced themselves out of the panic buying.

I said dealer and I should have said DISTRIBUTOR. Specifically RSR. Zanders is out of everything too. I received 20 of the clear Butler Creek 30rnders today from CDNN, but they are out now too.
All of my distributors are TAPPED!

I've got plenty of guns, mags and ammo and I'm running scared.  I've updated my insurance rider to add a 30% premium to everything i own just in case.  I really wish I would have followed through with my plan to buy a hundred lower receivers because now I would be one popular and rich son of a bitch.

Larue is backordered on CTR stocks... haven't sent me mine yet (I ordered early October).

Been on AIM's waiting list for a training ammo resupply of Wolf .223 Military Classic.

Still waiting but I've got several years worth of reserves to fall back on in the meantime.

Yeah, actually....

I had my dealer order 3 stripped lowers from Dans ammo almost 3 weeks ago. He was told they were in stock and would ship immediately. A week or so ago they still weren't in, so my dealer called and was told they would ship that day. Today, they still weren't in, but "we're at the top of the waiting list".

I am not impressed with dansammo.com. It's one thing if you tell me up front that you're out of stock, or if you tell me on the follow up call that you erroneously failed to tell me the same thing. It's another thing entirely when you lie twice, and you will receive zero future business from me.


Oh, and when I was talking with my dealer today.... He said that he talked to DPMS yesterday and they were 70,000 rifles behind now, with a 6-8 month lead time. Rock River will not even give an estimate of delivery time, and actually tried to talk him out of ordering a RR .308 and suggested he try someone else. My dealer also said that distributor X(can't remember the name, but largest one) was saying that basically every gun through the system was already allocated due to sales being so high.

So, on the bright side, the socialist motherfuckers being in power is arming America. Let's just hope America uses them on the shitbags if they try any more BS.

I did just get my pmags from Streichers on Tuesday. The lowers was a tongue in cheek joke, I can't find any instock lowers for any nearly normal pricing. I think I'm going to get complete guns instead of lowers. The complete guns are everywhere around here. Just can't find the lowers, and it looks like uppers are getting PITA, too.

Well, my only gripe so far has been that I ordered five 5.56 AK mags from a place, and they sent me five 5.45 magazines. I ordered Bulgarian and they sent ProMag.

Shipping them back to be replaced.
Link Posted: 11/20/2008 12:22:02 PM EDT
I had the opposite happen to me last week.

I ordered a complete upper from Bushmaster 2 weeks ago, who told me it was backordered for approx 6-8 weeks.  1 week ago, a delivery truck pulls up with my complete upper, which brought a huge smile to my face!
Link Posted: 11/20/2008 1:37:00 PM EDT
Just got a bunch of  Bulfgarian 5.56 mags last week.  I wasn't sure if they would really come until they showed up.
Bought another 5.56 AK the other day and wanted a stash for each piece.  Now I need 9mm for my new RRA., dammit.

I ordered an upper from CMMG on Oct. 15 and they still haven't made it; they're waiting on FSBs to come in.


Other than that, and the PMags I backordered just for kicks, I've received everything I expected to.

YMMV.




edit:

And when I picked up the last stripped lowers I ordered (ordered pre-election, picked up post-election), there were several EBR's collecting dust on the dealer's shelves.


Link Posted: 11/20/2008 1:49:56 PM EDT
I've walked in and bought lowers and other parts that day at the gun shop. I usually pick up a couple mags when the price is decent. There's stuff out there if you look. Gun show next month as well. woo hoo.
Link Posted: 11/20/2008 1:51:41 PM EDT
I went into a local gunshop on the 4th to buy a stripped lower. They had one, but I found out I needed a state permit to buy one (recently moved here). I asked them to hold it while I get my permit, they put my name on and put it in back. I didn't talk to them again until today when the permit came in. I was surprised they held it that long with the increased demand given that I didn't call or check in at all since the 4th. Even gave me the $120 price they were selling them for before the election. They will get more of my business in the future.

Damn, which place has 5.45 ak mags in stock? I need to buy a few but no one has them in stock.

I wish I would have known about you I could have bought them off of ya.

I ordered 2 complete CMMG lowers about a week ago and they shipped today.  should be here soon.    just backorder what you want at a good price and you will get it.

Do you have an FFL? If not you might get in a bit of trouble for selling 100 lowers for profit.
