    I have been waiting for my Colt Commander to be finished by a 'smith and he keeps saying Novak front night sights have been on backorder-about two months so far.

    Is he just not trying hard enough to find one measly front sight or has every single build on the face of the earth come to a standstill as a result of the backordered sights?

    I'd press him a little more but I have been waiting so long I almost don't care.

    I sent a gun to Novak last month, it came back with the slide milled and new sights on it 4 days after it was received.

    I don't think there's a back order, at least if there is Novak doesn't seem to know about it.

    The guy probably has one distributor he has used for a thousand years and only uses them. Kinda pisses me off.
