What have you heard, my FFL called a few days ago and was told another 4 weeks. Yet their web site still says 3-4...

Website says 4-8 weeks out. I think people did not foresee how many people were going to want one of these rifles.

Even with the change to 4-8 weeks, I'll still be at or past the 8 week mark...

Call John D in customer service. He has always been a straight shooter with me. Let him know what your issue is and maybe he can help you out.

I've talked to a couple of them, Stacy being one. I can't complain about their customer service. Grant it, not the answers I was hoping for, but at least they take the time to talk with you.
I would venture a guess it's more an outside supply issue as opposed to an in house problem. To be honest, Id rather wait and have that reputed Spike's quality I'm hearing about then a Crusader rushed out the door.

I am a very lucky shooter to be able to live near Spikes. I love going in there and seeing all the bad ass stuff they have in the show room. And as far and waiting for a Spikes to put together how it should be its worth its weight in gold for a guy who would have to send the gun back to get fixed. That could take a few weeks right there. And how about that being able to call and talk to a person! Try that with some company like Colt of Remmington to talk about your order.

D. All the above. I really have zero complaints, yeah the wait sucks, but you provided just 1 example of why it's worth it. Hell, if you ever stop in there, tell Stacy hi and thanks! It's not like I don't have an M1A loaded to pass the time!
