    Current Raven quick-ship lead time?

    I just placed an order for a quick-ship phantom, and I'm just wondering anyone has purchased one recently. A Google search revealed several different answers, but most were a year or more out of date. Just curious if anyone has recent experience...

    I think you might have found your answer if you had called the company before placing your order. You're going the long way to get a direct answer here.

    If I were Raven's CS department I wouldn't be deviating from the "all quick ship holsters ship within 30 days" line rather than committing them to a shorter timeline... especially given the requests all over their website to not call/email until your projected shipment time has passed. Recent customers would provide a much more accurate (albeit anecdotal) source of evidence.

    Thanks. Somehow my search turned up a few posts on this forum but missed that one. FWIW, I just got an email saying it was off to "final finishing". I'm not sure how long it takes to QA/QC and ship, but they're going to have to stretch it out to make 30 days (still possible, don't want to jinx myself).

    Also, unlike any other company I've dealt with, they've emailed me at every step with updates. Ie, order processed, sent to production department, production begun. I placed the order a little more than 48 hours ago, and so far have recieved 4 emails after the initial order confirmation email with status updates. Very cool that they make the effort to keep customers in the loop with that level of detail.

    Well, the holster arrived on Saturday (didn't get a chance to pick it up until yesterday). I haven't had a chance to test it out, but they managed to get it to my mailbox in 6 days, which is pretty impressive considering that their 30-day quick ship is a faster option to their normal lead time and they just cut that down by 80%.

    I had a similar fast turnaround. Frankly I'm still surprised they don't inventory the most popular models.
