RRA Delivery Schedule

3155 Views 31 Replies 18 Participants Last post by  huckleberry
In late December 2004 my local dealer placed an order for an LM and was promised delivery in 4 to 6 months. Since it's now been nearly 8 months he called for a status and new estimated delivery date a week ago today. He was told that they are "way behind" but would call back with a new estimated date. When he didn't hear from them after 3 days he tried again and was told that they still hadn't come up with a new promise date but would call when they did. To date he still hasn't heard from them. :bawling:

If anyone has recent experience with, or can comment on RRA's delivery schedule I'd appreciate a post.

In late December, I had a few LMs on my shelf.;)

elivery depends alot on options chosen. I have had a hiccup here and there over the years, but RRA usually makes delivery on time or within 60 days thereafter. This is not unusual for a made to order pistol. What adds to this is RRA's government contracts, and the fact that Chuck is instrumental in each facet of his company and the chief pistolsmith. If your dealer had any experience with RRA, he would have known this and told you up front. I always give my customers a cushion, and I am very up front about it.

As a matter of fact, I placed a few special orders at that time, and I can tell you for certain that the build time for a basic LM with a blued finish was being quoted at 6-8 months.

What's not to understand? Some dealers and individuals order them with the intention of selling them. I usually stock up to ten of them. We just kind of keep a running order.

On the auction sites, there are some folks that do the same.

Wait time on rifles? Umm, I typically have a full stock. Ocassionally there is a bottleneck on delivery of some parts, but rarely on rifles.

Be well!
