I recently ordered a barrel assembly and stock from Bushmaster. The stock arrived but the barrel was not shipped.
It was an 11.5 inch w/5.5 inch permanently attached flash supressor so theres no NFA requirements involved.
I've sent an inquiry via their customer service on the web

Curious if this is routine for Bushmaster with barrels or if they are just in short supply due to military or other contracts. Anyone else experience back orders recently? Wondering if my order is something that is "made to order" and not a stock shelved item?

Sure would be nice to be able to see if items were in stock on their website or if an item is custom made.

It's listed on their website under barrels and assemblies, second entry, with part number A BBL-11.5Wa. I'm thinking that they might have to have the flash supressor silver soldered on and thats the reason for the delay. I'll wait for their reply to my inquiry.

Call them and see if it shipped. MY friend had his upper vanished when shipped from Bushmaster this past month.

I ordered a 14.5" M4 profile BBL 2 weeks ago,and just got it today.Smells like it JUST came from the machine shop.I ordered it w/o the FH installed,I think they were just backlogged or something.

ETA: I called them last Thursday to check the status on my order,have you called them yet ?

I'll give them some time. The invoice says it was not shipped and no email has come indicating shippment. My CC has not been charged yet for it either so thats a pretty good indicator that nothing is en route.

The intent of my post was curiosity mainly, wondering if they are running behind and if it was a wide spread thing.

Problem is he didn't answer any of my IM's, emails or questions in his for sale threads...So I ordered from Bushy for about the same price..I try to support a board supporter whenever I can,but I had questions....

PK Firearms stocks Bushy barrels. I ordered a 11.5" unit from Paul about two weeks ago and it arrived about a week later. Paul is a good man to deal with.
FWIW,I paid $211 including freight for it,a Bushy 11.5" HBAR with 1:7 twist.
