You just lost any credibility you had. You can't can't count on any lead time that PT&G might give you, ,,,, on anything you might order from them!

That's why I keep a few "on the shelf" in my shop. When I get down to 2, I place another order, because I know I won't get them 'right away'. Why would I be able to give anyone a 'current lead time for a reamer' from them? I quit ordering from them a long time ago because I couldn't count on their 'estimated delivery time', or that the reamer I ordered would be the reamer I got, or that it would even cut.! I guess I'm a slow learner, I own 8 of theirs (I have near 80 finish chambering reamers in my inventory). Hobby tools, at best! Hobbyists have time to wait (and wo

Hes still asking questions so I'm answering them, his thread so if I offended him sorry TacO.
Theres a difference between bashing and giving somebody real truth of our own experiences. I hope members on here always do that saves alot of headaches in the long run.
I can read just fine, reread my post ordered parts 6-8 weeks be 4 months its just typical PTG even his own smith said that so who can't read.

You in no way offended me, L.Sherm. I really appreciate all the input you've given in my wildcat quest and I wasn't calling your experiences bashing. That is just stating your experience!

It just seemed like some of the heated comments were something to do with unfounded accusations on companies lead times.

I'm honestly not sure where this convo jumped the rails and got people riled up!

Not even close. If PTG still put out a good product I would be defending them.

10-15 years ago PTG was excellent.
All I can speak of is my experience, i ordered a custom reamer last Dec, and received it in March, within the stated time. It was spot on when I got it, and the rifle is super accurate. Also their CS has been top notch whenever I have called them.

It seems you are the exception, not the rule for them based on responses in this thread at least.

I ordered a throater 2 days ago and asked how long for custom reamers and was told 8 to 10 weeks.

Throater I needed was in stock.
