    Don't say that...I just ordered a barrel 2 weeks ago, and it looks like 8 weeks minimum for it

    Re: waiting on new barrels.

    Ya. I just talked to my smith ("shortgrass" here on LRH) yesterday, & he was telling me that even Hart went from 8 weeks, to 12 week wait time!

    Glad mine was ordered in February, & my build should arrive back here in Oregon in a week or two!!!!!!!
    Yeah! It seems like the wait is forever long when your waiting for something that cool huh. Like trying to sleep the night before opening day of Elk season, its pure torture, but usually worth the wait in the end.
    Be patient, & it'll get there.

    For me this is really hard because this is my first "custom" gun. started out as a stock Savage 11 and the only stock part is the action, once it's all put together. Waiting on the barrel, Ordered a Benchmark from Stockade, Kevin Rayhill said he'll install it for no extra cost, so I'll be sending him the rifle once he gets the barrel finished, he said 2-4 months

    I'm always waiting for gun goodies, custom reamers are very exciting to wait for and new lathe tooling is hard to beat, barrels are great especially from a new maker, I think I'm going to put in a Hart order next

    Re: waiting on new barrels.

    Try Waiting on your build after you have seen a pic of it !!!!! I have a 338 lapua off to Grit ( Deadly Precision Gunsmithing) and he sent me the pic a few days back and now I am like a damn kid at christmas can't hardly sleep......if that isn't cruel and unusual punishment I don't know what is. Hell of a gunsmith and customer service is awesome, but a bit sadistic if you ask me I may have begged him for the pic, but addicts don't know whats best for them.
