I've had one on order with a local shop since the 1st week of March. Last Mon. (5/13/02) I was told it would arrive in 3 weeks. I guess that indicates about 3 months lead time.
Now I'm scrounging for something to use for a defensive rifle class this week end. It seems like they should mention something like "this model has limited availability" in their catalog. When I signed up for this class I never dreamed that I wouldn't have a rifle by the time the class started. Bummer!! -The_Brick
