Why five weeks?

Wow, what a shock when I ordered my first Caspian frame. I'm taking the plunge into assembling my first 1911 (not A1) from parts Dad had from one of his old 1911's. Ordered the frame with custom numbers, Dads initials and DOB. I was hoping to have it for a Christmas present, but with the 5 week wait and my inexperience, it might have to wait until May for his birthday.
Does Caspian mine the steel and melt it down to make each frame as they are ordered, or are they just that busy turning out frames and slides?
