abs barrels

just talked with kirby and i ordered a carbon-fiber barrel in Jan. for my 338 AM, Kirby has not got my barrel from ABS (No response from ABS either) is any one getting a response from them? I am just sick about this, i wanted this gun for hunting season. I went with this barrel so my wieght would be under 16lbs. for Idaho hunting. Plus the barrel would last longer because it removes the heat. Since I live near Idaho I don't want a gun I can't use in Idaho, so again is any one getting any barrels delivered?

I ordered a barrel in Feb., and still no sign of it.The main thing scary about ABS is they will not answer the phone or return E-mails, at least not mine.

ABS

I was told that the problem is getting the barrels from the barrel makers. It is quite a process to mill them down and slows down production. They can make several normal barrels to one prepped for carbon. Don't have any confirmation on this but the wait is worth it. I love my abs barrel.

A slow down in getting your materials is a common problem when things have to be outsourced but that is no reason to not keep your customers updated on their products
