I wouldn't normally worry about it, but I tried to add to my order 2 weeks ago (by both email and phone) and still haven't heard back yet. I was just wondering if anyone around here has had any dealings with Bison Armory. Bison came highly recommended, but I'm starting to have my doubts. What do you guys think?
A look at their website shows that Bison Armory is about 4 years old. They assemble uppers and rifles with components from an assortment of suppliers. A company like that is at the mercy of their suppliers for delivery times. All I can recommend is patience. Calling them frequently can only slow them down. Changing your order can move you to the back of the queue or even give an excuse to change the price.
Just to cheer you up I had one well known "manufacturer" of 50 caliber AR-15s take 10 months to deliver a non-custom model when their website said 4 to 6 weeks. The wait won't kill you. Anxiety might. Just shoot something else until your upper arrives.
