    Well has anyone ever received a order yet from this outfit ? I placed a order back on 1-3-13 and nothing yet I did get a email that said still processing and read home page. Now 2 months later and no they haven't charged my card yet but nothing so just curious if anyone ever did get any uppers from them at all or bcg ? :cool:

    A buddy of mine bought from them before the panic splurge shopping which occurred in December. Product seems fine.

    As for them not shipping you the order, yeah DPMS, RRA, Daniel Defense, and Del-Ton are over 12 months out on product deliveries so enjoy the wait :)

    These were just extra parts for projects. I am far from being a idiot with only parts and no ammo ;)

    Not saying that you are an idiot, just saying that EVERYTHING is in short supply.

    Heard of them; but like everyone says, guns, parts and ammo are backordered for everyone.

    I ordered a RedX 16 inch SS upper and it arrived 3/14/13. Looks nice. It fits my LMT lower but not my Palmetto?! I bought it to serve my Palmetto lower. I can't get the rear takedown pin in. Arrgh!

    It's barely been 2 months and you're already to that point??!! I am the world's most impatient man, and I waited 8 months last year for my Sig P938. Now, I have an order in for a Colt LE6920, and I expect it to take just as long, or longer.....

    I can be impatient as well,but only when vendors feed be b*lls*hit on delivery times, promising crap and not delivering.

    I won't be ordering from DSArms again anytime soon. I placed an order when they had an upper that said "in stock" back during christmas of '11 once I clicked "submit" I immediately got an email that said "sorry, out of stock, item is backordered" Then began the game of "we expect to ship in 3 to 4 weeks." this lasted 5 months, but they finally did ship what I ordered.


    WestForkArmory just did the same thing. I ordered with them because they promised a 10 day backorder time. said they were getting a bunch of parts in and could fill my order/ship in 10 days. That game lasted 3 months before they shipped. 10 times longer than their promised delivery time.

    I can be patient and wait, Because I understand the market is the way it is right now, and will be for quite some time, but I cannot stand when I'm lied to or given bad information, especially when it has the appearance of being on purpose just to secure my dollar into their pocket. "yea, place your order with us, we have it in stock and can ship it immediately! ....Oh, sorry, it's out of stock right now. don't worry, we'll place it on backorder for you and charge you when we ship...but if you cancel your order completely before the product is shipped to you, we're going to charge you a "restocking fee" on something that we never had in stock in the first place, let alone actually re-stocking it"

    ok.

    noted.

    I'll do business elsewhere.

    I have a situation where a customer back-ordered a 6.5 Credemore upper receiver. DPMS told me 4-6 months. That was 13 months ago. Sometimes things area also out of the vendor's hands.

    That IS true, sometimes it is out of someone's hands. BUT, that someone should not lie about it, and NEEDS to keep the customer informed. By informed, I mean they need to call or E-mail in a timely fashion, as many times as it takes. They have all the contact info. 70CUDA is right on........

    do WHAT ??

    I am impatient for fact that I ordered "IN STOCK ITEMS" NOT BACK ORDERS ! SO a 2 month wait is long enough I would say.

    If they posted on their site "in stock" you should have gotten it by now. If you don't feel comfortable dealing with them, call and cancel your order. Just keep in mind getting anything AR will probably be about a year wait, unless you want to pay stupid high prices.

    and that's the crap that pizzes me off too. I'd rather wait to place an order until I see a vendor who HAS IT IN STOCK! but it seems these vendors love to do the bait and switch to sucker you into placing your order with them with the whole "yea, it's in stock, go ahead and place your order" when it's clearly NOT in stock and they leave you waiting months and months for your order to ship.

    PSA is only accepting orders on things that are in stock, they are not doing backorders. yet it still took them 3 weeks to ship some ammo. I know the market is crazy right now and everyone is buying everything, but even 3 weeks seemed excessive on something that's in stock...especially when you look at their inventory and see pages and pages of stuff that NOT in stock...if nothing's in stock, what's taking so long to ship what is!? haha. I'm not all that upset about PSA's deal though. they told me up front that i should expect around 15 days before the order will be packed and shipped, and they met that delivery promise (business days). because of that...I WILL order from PSA again, they were upfront, honest, and met the deadline they gave themselves.

    Was this in response to my post, or someone else's? Anyway, I'm agreeing with you. Whatever the situation, it should be presented to you clearly, so you can make an informed decision. For somehting that is in stock, there is no excuse to not have it on the UPS truck in a max. of 2-3 days.....

    yeah it was to your reply. But all good because at the end of day I am stocked, locked, and loaded so extra junk is just that extra junk they can stick in their back side at red wings

    OK. You saw it was "in stock" and clicked on it. In the mean time 473 people had clicked on it just seconds ahead of you. "In Stock" does not mean "we have an unlimited supply of them". Some sites have sophisticated systems that give an exact number that are in stock. Most do not. "In stock" may have meant ONE.

    If you are going to get your little girl panties in a bunch over a couple of months wait, oh well. Good luck with that. I have had a BCG on back order since November (MidwayUSA). I understand the nature of the business right now I will get it when I get it. If I happen on one at a good price that I can touch, I will buy it and cancelmy order, no hard feelings.

    GEEZ. Get over yourself

    OK, that's a good point. Although a system that can keep track of accurate counts this day and age can't be that complicated. It's more about the people running the system.

    I got in trouble here 2 months ago for saying something VERY similar......
