    Anybody have an idea of what the turnaround is like for VZ Grips.

    I order some last week and got an email they would notify me when they will ship which I guess surprised me a little. I would have thought they had them in stock, didn't say one way or another so do they have to build your grip when you order or do they have stuff in stock?

    I ordered these with Bobtail and Mag Release Cut.

    All of mine have arrived very quickly (within days). I even contacted them directly before ordering my first pair and explained to them that I had a Gunsite course coming up and wondered if the grips would come in time (it was about 3-4 days away), they made sure to get them out immediately.

    I would contact them ask about it.

    Doolyd,
    I ordered a set on Friday of last week and got the same email. I ordered a set of the Alien grips (w/ no options). Thought they would have been shipped today, but I guess not. I'll probably shoot them an email tomorrow and see what kind of time line to expect.

    Well I sent an email but haven't gotten a response. I will try calling in the next couple of days if I don't hear anything.

    Update:
    Sent them an email last night, got an email today from Tina, and a second email later on in the day saying that the grips were shipped. Hopefully, I'll get them in the next couple of days. Just got a new toy that I'm wanting to put them on.

    No such quick turnaround for me. Finally got an email today saying they would go out today or next week sometime; didn't get a They Shipped email so I guess next week sometime.

    Do I just have bad luck?:crying:

    Doolyd,
    Got them in the mail on Thursday evening when I got home from work. Put them on the Springfield. They look pretty nice. Still need to take a pic though. Hopefully, you'll have them soon.

    Did they indicate if they were out of stock or if there had been a reason for the delay?

    Ordered mine on their website yesterday. Got an email today that the package has shipped. That's PDQ.

    No I got the same email from Tina said they would ship yesterday and still haven't heard anything or didn't get a shipped confirmation.

    Emailed again today to see what she says. I guess I am not real happy at this point since no other explanation was given. If they tell you they will ship on a certain day I would expect they would ship.

    I hope they make up with quality.

    I am not sure what happened but Tina replied again and apologized for the delay. She said they would ship today so I hope to have them soon. I won't hold it against them especially since everyone else seems to get fast turnaround.

    Does anyone know if they'll ever release the herringbone grips again?
