    I waited 8 months for mine, pre-move.

    When did you order? What's the answer/status you've recieved thusfar?

    It is sometimes dependent on your or their blank, if it is in stock or waiting on barrel. Form what I understand they are a sister co. for the wrap. Betting customs also does there own wraps as a ''sister'' co. Proof is currently under construction, and I DONT KNOW, if they are doing wraps at this time, manufacture building is a ways out yet. It is just a few miles from my home and 25,000 sq.ft facility, in the framing stage. They have a much smaller shop near there that they are working out of now.

    Thanks, I read about the ownership change, and I imagine with building a new facility they have their hands full now.

    jrsolocam,
    Any update on your barrel? Its been a while. I heard PR were turning their own
    "steel barrel blank” now. That might speed things up. Was thinking about getting one after the first of the year... But Man thats a wait.

    I spoke with Jeff Badelt yesterday and he claims that under the current establishment, turn-around time is 12-14 weeks. My gunsmith will be putting in an order this week so I'll let everyone know how long it took once it arrives.
