    Holy smokes, how far behind is Glock? I ordered a G39 8 weeks ago and haven't heard a thing. I know I live in NY and our Regime has imposed new laws that are criminal in nature, but I need a new gun! Any idea?

    I don't know but my LGS has Glocks that have 5/2012 dates on them.
    Only thing I can think of is G39 not popular?

    I'd take a 30 instead but they are apparently on back-order as well.....

    topgunsupply sent out an email today stating that they are getting delivery estimates of 24 MONTHS on some items (didn't say which ones).

    Thank you Obama, for arming America to the teeth!

    The owner of my local LGS (a stocking dealer) has been told that backorders for the more popular Glocks are approaching the 12-month mark.

    Yeesh. :sigh:

    Number I read said the current backlog is 600-700k guns, so I wouldn't be shocked if its at least a year.

    I ordered 6 - 10 round Glock Mags. 3 for G26 and 3 for G19. I was told at least 12 weeks. I don't ever expect to see them. I live in New York and was trying to get them before 1/31. After then they can't be sold here. My friend that owns a gun store told me after 1/31 if you buy a Glock handgun here in NY you will get the case and handgun only, no magazines. Then you will have to wait until Glock makes 7 round mags for NY. When hell freezes over. Imagine that.....

    The local gun shop here said Glock told them it would be 2014 before they would receive any new Glocks.

    I find that hard to believe. Gun shops around here are getting new stock regularly.

    Do you reckon, they will ever realize that all those gun buyers can vote?

    I'm sure they are, there getting Glocks that they order before all this crap has started. Go in there and have them order you a new G19 and see what they tell you.

    Go to Academy sports and ask them to order you any Glock and see what they tell you. The other day I was in the Chattanooga Academy sports and they had one Glock on the shelf and the manger said he couldn't tell me when he was getting any new Glocks in.

    One thing I'm worried about is, with Glock having to crank out so many guns in short order, will their quality control suffer? Think about it. If their capacity is completely maxed out, I picture Lucy on the line at the candy factory wrapping chocolates. I just hope they can maintain quality through this madness.

    I'd bet these backorder times will never be realized. If the legislation fails many will likely cancel their orders. If it passes the result wil be the same, but for different reasons.

    Academy hasn't run a gun advertisement, in the last 2 Sunday Houston Chronicles.

    If indeed Glock did sell three to four years,regular production of magazines in one month,I'd say they are Backed Up. SJ 40

    I know here in West Kentucky the LGS has a decent amount of Gen 3's in stock. Gen 4's are scarce but still more than you guys seem to have.

    I seem to notice talking to locals we have more Ruger, Smith and Wesson and Sig fans. I'm even seeing people buy quite a few 1911's. Of course none of this compares to the mass buying of AR-15's and Ruger 10-22's. I can't keep 22lr, 223 or 556 in stock for at least a couple hours.

    It's going to be a while. It seems that some parts of the Country are bare and others have a few. Once the panic buying ends we'll have more. This isn't the first time this has happened. It will take a while this time around.
