    Why would you assume I was desparate locutus?

    The bolt assembly is just a spare part and at the same ol' price.

    The place I ordered the ammo from updated me that it was erroneously listed as 'in stock' at the time so they backordered it for me (which they do not generally do) to guarantee me the same good price I initially ordered it for. Two to eight week backorder. With the run on ammo they are down to only a three to five day backlog of processing orders and one to two weeks for shipments to arrive (coupla days to me from where they are). Told them no rush and that I luv 'em man!

    Say what????:confused::confused::confused:

    I didn't say you were desperate. I didn't imply it.:rolleyes:

    You asked what folks were waiting for. I said I wasn't waiting for anything. I always keep well stocked up on things so I have no need to wait.:p

    locutus, I know you wrote you were "not waiting for anything." But you're ignoring that you also wrote: "I was prepared[/B]!" Sorry. I read that to mean people waiting for something were not prepared. Desparate. And that's not necessarily the case.

    My AR Bolt Assembly arrived yesterday. Only a small percentage of shooters might keep a spare one. I think that's beyond prepared.

    Backordered 22lr ammo (told a June due date)... and 9X18 Makarov plinking (July on that one)... Mags came in two weeks ago for my AR.... I'm pretty well over 500+ on all my ammo needs otherwise.
    ... but what I'm really waiting for is the panic, profiteering and stupidity to subside. :mad:

    Not waiting any more. Got a complete AR upper and barrel recently and was able to complete my build. Used the dough from the sale of another AR to get a pristine M-1 Garand. I'm all done for a while.

    .22 LR to show up in stock.
    A Ruger Mini-14 that isn't overpriced.
    Finally saw a Bersa Thunder 380 the other day. Kicking myself for not jumping on it.

    I did snag a 32 round magazine for my Ruger P89. Hello silliness! I justify it as a good purchase for range days so I spend less time loading magazines.

    Crazedjava, I think this is the one place you never have to "justify" a 32 rnd mag for anything to anyone at any time.
