    Well today marks my 120th day of waiting for my rifle to be delivered. Thats 4 months. Originally, when I ordered it, they said 60 to 90 days lead time. Then they said more like 90 to 120 days. I am patient. I know its going to be a great rifle. It's just that I thought by ordering it in May, it might be here in plenty of time for me to get a few rounds off before deer season which begins in November. Oh well, more waiting I guess. :eek:

    deerslayer,There are local dealers around here that have complete uppers in stock.If you haven't already paid RRA for the rifle,I could dig up a phone # for you.They can ship the upper directly to you,and if you also need a complete lower,I'm sure you could find one locally or just assemble your own.
    I paid $750 for my complete RRA 458SC upper,when I bought mine.

    I think he ordered it from RRA and if you cancel your order you lose 20% I believe.

    Because I dont have a FFL, I ordered it form a local gun store and did a couple upgrades on it. I added a Badger Tac Latch and an upgraded stock. I made a $600 deposit on it and I'm not sure of the penalty for cancellations. This is my first new rifle. Well, other than my .50 cal Remmington 700 muzzle loader.

    Well I got tired of waiting so I emailed them and this is what they said,

    Unfortunately we received a bad batch of barrels from the supplier so we are waiting now on the next shipment, so I do not know how far that issue set us behind, they are not able to ship any .458’s out right now.

    Thanks,

    I'll ask someone I know and see if he has anything.
