I don't think we ever disagreed.

I could see some reading your OP and thinking you were getting out the tinfoil. I just wanted to point out that BCM gets behind and has suspended retail orders to get caught up on contracts, even during non election years.

I wasn't questioning the fact they were suspending complete retail rifle sales.

If I am not mistaken, BCM may have suspended taking orders on complete rifles as recently as January of this year. Makes sense if you thnk about it, with so few parts suppliers trying to supply an overheated market all builders are experiencing parts shortages of some sort. Many distributors like Bud's, Impact, etc are also almost always out of stock on ARs and many popular handgun models...It's 2008 all over again.

Only good thing is that Gunbroker will be chock full of good, hardly used hardware next Spring.

Just about all the manufacturers have major backlogs this year. Daniel Defense say they cannot guarantee new orders for uppers until 2013. Other manufacturers have 3 to 5 month lead times. Some have said they cannot give an ETA. You will see a slow trickle from existing orders getting filled for dealers and distributors.

Just glad I did my build when I did. Prices have increased as well as lead times. Hopefully prices and supplies will be tolerable again soon.
