    Perhaps nobody can give me a clear idea, but I ordered my first 1911 from Bud's in April and still, nothing. I'm dying here and I really want a 1911. And this is really the one I want right now.

    Can anyone seriously give me an idea of how long wait might be for one of these? I'm starting to consider asking for my money back and looking locally for a 1911.

    Here's the gun BTW:

    This may sound dumb, but was it in stock when you ordered it? Have they charged your credit card for it yet? Have you called them regarding your order?

    No, it wasn't in stock. But you see to the right where you can reserve the gun? That's what I did. Yes, they have my money and after a certain period, if you're sick of waiting they will refund fully if you ask. I have talked to them and they have no idea.

    How's about calling or emailing SA directly?

    Maybe they could shed some light on the subject?

    Not this model, but there are quite a few 1911s at some local stores around here. I'm just tempted to get my money back and buy one of those.

    I had thought about that. Probably the best idea.

    I had a similar experience with a reserve order Kimber, I eventually gave up and ordered a different gun. Have you tried Impact...

    P.S. Buds CS was great through the entire process but the delivery is completely out of their control...

    I am a LEO and I had to wait 4 to 6 months for my SA MC Operator. SA does their guns in 2 month increments, then off for 6 months. They fill Military and LE contracts then the civilian orders. Good price, that's cheaper than LE price.

    I would call buds and get the order number and then contact SA. SA has good customer service and will tell when they will fill buds orders. SA is worth the wait, they're great.

    Oh, I would never fault Bud's. It seems I'm getting all my guns from them these days. :)

    Really?

    Just the kind of info I was looking for. I'll give them a call today. Thanks! :)

    How ironic.

    I start complaining and what do you know, I have an e-mail this morning from Bud's that they're shipping my gun! Great, I should have my first 1911 by the end of the week!

    Congrats - you will enjoy it!
    I almost went for the SS Loaded. I know that your is the target version w/adjustable rear sights but very similar.
    I ultimately went with the Park'd Loaded & have been very, very pleased.
    Great shooter!

    Yeah usually when the 1911s aren't in stock and you reserve it. It could take up to even 6 months! Thank goodness they are getting you one fast. I got my first 1911 ever a moth ago too!!!

    That is a fine piece for a first 1911. :)

    Now you need about $600 (+ shipping) for 2 cases of ammo!
