    hey i dont know if this is the right forum for this kind of question, but oh well. I bought a lower build kit for PSA last monday and it still hasnt shipped after 9 days. It's still "proccessing". Is this normal for their shipping times? i want to hear from anyone who has bought from PSA before.

    P.S. i know it says orders may be delayed on their main page, but it didnt say that 9 days ago and it still wouldnt make sense to take 9 days to sort everything out for shipping. its not like im buying a complete upper.

    PSA is experiencing some serious growing pains right now! PATIENCE! If you have it by June, count yourself lucky!

    ALL gun manufacturers are SLAMMED thanks to the re-erection of the gun salesman in chief. Hell at one point this year Ruger, arguably one of the largest gun manufacturers in the states, suspended ALL new orders for a couple of months because volume was WAY to high for them to keep up.

    Huge orders + limited production capacity = LONG waits!

    Look at your long wait as a good thing!!

    I ordered a LPK from them about two weeks ago right before Black Friday and got if that Tuesday or Wednesday I believe the week after. I'm sure their orders have picked up though

    Taken right from their main page

    Due to increased order volume please allow additional time for your order to process and ship.

    I have been on the Ruger waiting list for a 1911 since March of this yr . Patients is what it takes and I dont have them :D

    PSA has great prices, but is slow on delivery. They are overworked and behind, perpetually. I ordered an upper from them on Black Friday and was notified it likely would not ship until 12-15. $249 for a complete 5.56 upper? I can afford to wait a little.

    Here's my recent experience:

    I ordered an in-stock MI jam nut wrench on November 26.

    My shipping notification came on December 4, and the product arrived at my door on December 6.

    Ten days to my door after ordering.

    The last stuff I ordered from them I received a email on a sunday with shipping confirmation so I have to believe they are working their ***'s off and working the weekends also

    I just ordered their 12 Days of Christmas lower build kit. If I get it by Christmas I'll be lucky! No big deal though.

    Probably for that specific model. They probably have that configuration in stock and ship it quickly.

    I ordered a handgun on 12-3 and my order says "in processing" so it must be in the works.

    My issue with them is you can't get in touch with them! There phone leaves a message and you can't hit 0 for an operator, (you can't leave a message). I emailed them twice trying to add a mag to the order and never heard back. Hell, yesterday I faxed them copies of the email! We'll see, but if this is how they work, it will be my first and last order with them. I'm o.k. with waiting, but you have to respond.
