Its been about 2 months since I ordered but I got the 2 I ordered in about 1 week. both were 16" m4 profile. I have been hearing a lot of grumbling about there lack of communication as of late so I suspect like everyone else that there backed up. I did like the build quality/price point I expected to get a POS honestly but ended up with a decent shooter. only issue I had was slight rust on the flash hider where the packing oil had been to thin. Good luck locating one, let us know if you come across any in stock im sure others are interested as well.

I've been waiting 5 weeks with no correspondence. Someone hacked my credit card information and my card had to be canceled. Now I can't get a hold of them to update my information. I hope they don't just throw my order away. I've got a back up order thru model1sales ,but same card was used, waiting on reply by them too. Either way I'm not worried about the $100 cancellation fee, no card to charge to.

A couple hundred bucks for a BCG and CH ('s a basic cheapo CH, but so what?) is a deal. Excellent BCG. You could EBay those two parts alone for $300-400 total all day long.

So in the win regardless.

I think most online distributors are dealing with inventory programs that are not quite acclimated to the idea of 471 buyers jockeying for the same 14 pieces in 3 minute span. It sucks for the consumer, but I think it's somewhat forgiveable given the circumstances.

I know I canceled my order with Rguns after they called me nasty names in a email when I asked status update after 1 month and they didn't charge me fee.

And the Bipolar people at rguns now called me on phone and said stop emailing us we canceled order ! I was like I only emailed you 2 times morons you people emailed me 10 times crazies !! They are nuts ! Sucks that they are such scum and their lowers are good.
