Doc- My LWD 40/9 barrel just arrived too, after a three or four week back order wait. My Storm Lake barrel just came in as well, after a back order wait. Extraordinary demand for these great barrels decimated inventories and caused the back order situation. We are so accustomed to instant turnaround that having to wait for something, anything, drives us nuts. In the final analysis, it was worth the wait and I'm thankful we have access to accessories like LWD and SL barrels in the good ole USA. Aren't you?
