Larue Tactical

Placed my second order with Larue over the weekend and for the second time I got a message back that the item I'd ordered was backordered and would take 2-6 weeks to ship.

Anyone else have that problem? Everything I've ordered from them has ended up backordered. They make good stuff, but damn, why can't they show inventory on their site?

Have you tried ordering from a vendor other than Larue?
Their products are in demand, stuff is regularly back ordered.

What are you looking for?

Only Larue item I ever bought was ordered from BCM whom had it in stock. Got it in 2 or 3 days from order date.

If you think 2-6 weeks is bad you should order one of their rifles sometime.

Wasn't it Travelcm that basically waited two years only to be to pound sand when he called to ask about it?

I understand limiting supply to artificially inflate an already high demand, but two years is pretty stupid. That calls for an increase in production capability to get the guns out the door faster. I'd be trying to keep my back log in the three to four month range, but that's just me.

He ended up getting his, but it was a huge hassle.

I love LaRue mounts, but would neve even consider one of their rifles.

My first purchase from them was a T-1 Micro on a Larue mount. This latest purchase was just a couple QD endplates that are a few bucks cheaper than the Noveske version. Thinking I should just cancel the order and buy the Noveske version. That way all of my rifles match.

I have no issue with the Noveske end plates. Have three rifles with them already. I just saw the IWC offering on Larue's website and figured I'd give them a whirl. Figured I might get some Dillo Dust with 'em. If they had shown as out of stock, I'd have ordered directly from IWC (who I've never heard of before finding these on Larue's site).

I'm not in a rush as I'm still waiting on two Form 1's to come back, so it's not a huge deal. I just was annoyed that they don't show stock status on their site.

I have all Noveske QD endplates currently but stumbled across the IWC the other week. The IWC looks nicer with a machined outside profile vs the laser cut Noveske.

Charge just went through on my Amex, so maybe they're shipping today. Still no tax stamps, so it's not a huge rush for me. Will be interesting to compare these to the Noveske offerings.

So now I'm 2 for 2 with having a Larue order notification of being backordered 2-6 weeks, but that gets delivered in a little over a week. Apparently they like to under promise and over deliver. Either way, they're faster than PSA and I'm pleased with the products.

End plates came yesterday, complete with all the swag. Dillo dust, beverage entry tool, and stickers.

Installed one of the IWC endplates on my 5.56 build last night. Will wait to stake it until everything is together and function tested (next weekend perhaps).

I intended on pulling one of my rifles with the Noveske plate out to compare side by side but didn't have time. I think there are some differences in the finish, but nothing that really makes me want one over the other. IIRC, the Noveske finish is somewhat lighter.

I'm more curious as to if the MOE stock on this build will depress the QD when fully collapsed the way my VLT0R stock does on my SBR that uses the Noveske plate. Nothing like having the QD pop loose resulting in the first big scuff on your new "high end" suppressed SBR. Not a problem with the Noveske QD itself, IMO, just an interference problem resulting from the location of the QD and the dimensions of the stock.

So on closer inspection, I was correct. The finish is different. The Noveske has a lighter almost painted finish. It's also considerably thinner, doesn't show machining marks, and have more rounded edges. To be fair, I only noticed the machining marks on the IWC in the photos.

The IWC is thicker and also adds one feature that I think gives it a little leg up. It has rotation stops to prevent the QD from turning completely around. Not sure it's needed, but you won't have the qd bind the sling loop against the castle nut. Might be a good thing, but I'm not really sure.

Took a bunch of pics, but the lighting in my gun room sucks, so this is the best I can offer.

edit: The MOE stock does impact the QD and depress the button. Not sure if it'll pop loose. I couldn't make it happen, but without the weight of the upper to help, I can't be sure. I expect it'll pop loose the same way the other one does with the VLT0R stock.
