    Hard to get (Pistol on order)

    I ordered a Kimber Raptor Pro II from my local store three weeks ago. Called today (they told me 7 - 10 days at first) and was told that Kimber was completly out and producing firearms and shipping them. It is now a 60 - 90 day wait. Warehouses are a transition point now instead of a stockpiling one.

    So what I posted to do was bring this up, to find out if anyone else had ran into the same issue, and just see what folks said about it. I have heard alot about ammunition sales being fairly rediculous (will prices ever come back down?) and some weapons - but this one is not one that I see selling a whole lot because its expensive, is a fancier weapon outside and the same inside as others.

    We were lucky, got two of the last 3 Kimber Pro Crimson Carry II's in stock. LGS said wait time on special orders from Kimber would be about 3 months.
    Supply and demand, more demand than supply recently.

    I think it is the same with all companies

    When my FFL called Sig he was told that their usual warehouse inventory was 26 pages, now it is 1/2 page!

    All gun companies wind down at the end of december and spend most of January retooling their factories and setting up for production. You should start seeing the inventories back up to normal on all guns in late February and March.

    Yeah, I've asked two of my local dealers about a SIG I want to buy. One hasn't got any answer back from the SIG rep in a week; the other says he has outstanding orders with SIG that are four months old!

    Didn't know that rathos. This is a maintenance cycle then? Coupled with the fear of folks adds up to nothing in stock?
