    Not sure why I'm so excited seeing as it'll be months before this is even close to finished :crying: Damn panic buying.

    Lol it is exciting. I was excited when ever I got my parts in and it took me about 5 months to gather everything.

    It's natural. Just enjoy the ride put the lower together- mine was complete with stock for a several months just begging for me to put an upper on it.

    I'll add a very enthusiastic shout out for Brownell's to OP's list.

    Everyone who ordered the 10 packs of Pmags for $100 or $125 (depending on timing; there was a promo that expired back in mid December) is getting their orders fulfilled.

    Mine shipped yesterday.

    I've had no experience with Brownell's, but I ordered my 10 pack of pmags from DSG on 12/20 and received them 1/16. 20 Pmags for $215 is a helluva deal, and it only took just over three weeks or so to receive.

    I'd also like to tentatively add PKFirearms to my OP. I ordered a Pistol Buffer Tube Assembly sat night around 1:30am (technically sunday morning) and received it today. Great packaging, fast shipping, in stock items at a good price = A+ for me.

    I think there are a LOT of people who won't be getting their Brownells backorder for awhile.

    Last I saw they were only up to about December 19.

    My order for the 10 pack was placed on 12/18 FWIW, and they are following a very fair shipping schedule based on time/date order was placed.

    With all due respect, I've read multiple accounts of them not following any particular order when shipping.

    It seems that way...for the most part.

    I backordered 5 on Dec 28.

    I doubt I will see them this month.

    Fortunately I have been able to acquire quality magazines at good prices from several (4) other companies in the meantime.

    Never ordered from DSG.
    But RA guys are first-class at their CS. Been a long-time customer of theirs. They made a few errors along the way. However, they never hid behind any BS excuses, always apologized, and always made good promptly. Also, how many firearm businesses can you find that have live persons answering your questions/concerns at the wee hours of the night. Check out ARCOM in their Industry subforum, and you'll frequently see those guys answering their customer questions/issues at 1 or 2 in the morning. Now that's customer service!
