Ill check real quick bud, I booked marked a bunch because I almost went that route. I decided on an all USGI build minus the 18.5 barrel becasue the usgi parts are drying up!!!!

PS,

Why dont you order a criterion from Treeline, LRB, or Fulton they have them in stock. Im betting you arent getting a break from James River on the price of the barrel for the build because at the price the other companies are selling them for I cant imagine they make much money off them.

Sorry no luck, aimsurplus had them instock on Fri when I last checked. I guess the word is getting out. Id go with buying a criterion on your own and have it shipped to Mark.

I shouldn't have to buy a Criterion on my own when I was told everything was in stock and built to order. THAT is my point of contention (not that they don't have a 22" set aside, just that the "another week" thing has me wondering given the availability of those barrels). People are getting 18.5" barreled actions who have ordered after me so the build-time thing is a non-starter since the barreling/lapping/headspace portion is the most time consuming part of correctly assembling an M14.

I'll call next Monday and see what they say. Until then I'll give them the benefit of the doubt. If I get "another week" quote I'll smell a rat and ask to speak to Mark himself instead of a relayed message or email.

I have known Mark for years and he is a stand up guy. If the M1A wasn't banned here, I would snap up one of his in a heartbeat!

Not doubting his integrity; I said I'd give him the benefit of the doubt until proven otherwise. Their rep is why I decided to give JRA another whirl. I'm just ready for it to whirl on into my lap, that's all!
