Lately I been toying with the idea of putting together a Grendel. That's a task outside my experience, not to mention my comfort zone. (I've always bought complete guns, straight off the display rack, and then only after handling them to check for fit and feel.)
Am interested in a 14.5" carbine or maybe a 16" mid-length upper, with chrome-lined barrel. AA shows both on their website, but when I queried about availability, this was the reply:
I'm not sure if that combines for a total wait time of 10-12 weeks, but is this typical of gun makers these days?Standard lead time for the Grendel uppers is 4-6 weeks.....and right now the bolt and barrel (16") is also backordered for 6 weeks.
The only gun I ever special ordered was a Steyr AUG, but that was so long ago I don't remember how much time elapsed between order and delivery.
