I ordered 4 20rd pmags from botach that said they were in stock. 3 days later I get an email saying they are backordered with no eta. I have been waiting for my BCM 20in upper with the mi SS15g2 to come back in stock for months.

Makes me wonder if this will ever clear up lol. I went to my lgs today. Sold out of pmags in 8 min. Put five ar's out( sw mp sport, dpms panther, and three colts with MOE furniture. Two sold as they were carrying them out. Also had a armalite 50 bmg. I just wanna finish my rifle lol

Yeah I stop in there every once in a while since they are the only place close by with ar stuff. I live like 10 miles south of there. I keep checkin for 20 rd pmags but they have only been getting the 30s. I follow them on facebook so that's where I get most of my updates. Do you like anywhere else in the area

I will never do buisness with botach again! I ordered $1,800 of product from them about 6 months ago. They charged my credit card and then emailed me saying my item were on back order and they should ship within 2-4 weeks. I was ok with waiting because of the savings.
Well after 5 weeks of nothingness i tried calling them to get an update. No one know how to use a phone at botach. never answer or return calls. I waited another week and nothing. Disputed the charge and the fought it with my cc company! i never recieved the product and they tried to keep my money. Never again botach. Never again.
Great I just ordered a 20 rd pmag and some ranger plates from them a week ago that showed INSTOCK and now I read this....looks like its gonna be a long wait. Haven't received any kind of email from them as of yet

You 'might' get an email. You should check the status of your order. If it says pending send them an email. I was screwed out of 2 BCG's a few week ago because of a shipping address issue. I did get several items from that order shipped at decent prices but it took 3 weeks. I also was stupid a second time and ordered a couple of those 20 rnd Pmags also. I figured the shipping issue was resolved but again the order shows pending. Sent a nasty gram over the weekend so we shall see what comes of it.

On the other side I ordered some stuff from Bravo Company and it got here in a week, seems pretty good considering.....

You guys are teasing me with the BCM orders. I keep emailing them and they say they have no eta for the handguards. They always say to sign up for the email notification and I remind them that ot hasn't worked anytime that there have been bcg's in stock. I got the email from botch saying the pmags are on backorder with no eta. Hope it pans out

I too was backordered through BoTach on the same mags a few days after confirmation...and I have no local laws that would affect this purchase.

The simple truth is that the current hysteria is overwhelming the servers and inventory systems used by many distributors. I get it. It's tough to sort things out when 2500 people order multiples of the same product within a 5min span.

I bet I have $3k worth of backorders with a multitude of companies. As long as they don't all hit my bank on the same day, I'll probably manage, LOL. And that doesn't even count pending orders and "email alerts".

Yeah I know its crazy. And it seems like there is a lot of buying just to buy. I need 20rd for my rifle im building do to it having a bipod. I emailed BCM again today and got the same old email of they are on order but no eta. I wonder how PSA got the same handguard in 12in to sell on there uppers? I should have ordered that when it was in stock last night.... at least i would have had an upper for this lower.

Stop backordering stuff. It's not helping anything. My mentality is if it says in stock and afterwards they send me something saying back ordered I send them a reply saying cancelled! There's enough people actually getting things that when this all dies down there's going to be plenty of people who say "oh...I don't need this now." Then they're going to try and sell it. Just my opinion though. I've come across a couple people that have sold me a couple things here and there. No need to go through these suppliers that don't have **** anyways. Find the guys that have what you need and get it from them.

Well, I just got an email saying that everything on my order is back-ordered with no ETA. Bastages. Done dealing with them completely. I really despise the little 'customer service - how am I doing' link in their emails. I don't think it would do any good to vent anyway!

So as I said I am waiting for BCM's 20in upper with the MI SS15G2 handguard to come in stock. I saw on their website that the handguard itself is in stock. So I sent my email that I send every few weeks to see if there are any updates except this time I commented on the fact that they had the handguard in stock. I got the same copy and paste reply back about the industry being busy and the current political status and that there was no eta and to sign up for the email me when back in stock. So I replied that since they have the handguard in stock I wanted to know if they were going to be putting the upper in stock. Their reply.... "At some point we will have more available". Has anyone else had anything like this happen to them from BCM? I thouhgt it was a little rude of a reply. I mean I know they are probably tired of emails, but I think they should keep their customer service a priority. Am I wrong for being offended by the reply?
