I guess that's fine if that's about what you were told it would be.

Re: The longest time you had to wait?

I waited 2 years for a couple of rifles because I did not know better, and still had to do some
work on them and then decided to just start building them myself.

Not to long ago a friend brought me a box of rifle parts that he had been waiting on for 7 years
for his smith to assemble. I built the rifle in less than 3 weeks.

3 to 4 weeks time is plenty if the smith has time to dedicate to your rifle if he has everything
