Frustrated DOES NOT BEGIN to describe it! I had my local FFL place an order for a Grendel 20 AWS upper with Shilen barrel and AAC 51T flash hider ON SEPTEMBER 25, 2012. Before I did, I called AA and was assured that the lead time on such a custom build was 8 - 12 weeks. I called after Thanksgiving to see if it was on track (because Obama was re-elected in the meantime), and was told to call back in a month or so, because they could not even estimate delivery times for orders received two months earlier! I called again between Christmas and New Year, they couldn't even guess. Now coming onto FIVE MONTHS, I'm about to give up my Grendel plans for good!
I checked with my FFL several times, most recently this afternoon, and he has received no email or any other indication that my order is any closer to delivery than when he put it in. OK, I know everybody is swamped, but there is no way I'm going to believe there is any sort of FIFO system for processing orders there, especially custom builds. Any rational advice is appreciated.
