Default S&W still producing rifles?

Does anyone have any info on how many they are making per day? I ordered my M&P15 from Quantico Tactical over a month ago, and they still have no idea when they will get any more.

Default S&W still producing rifles?

When I ask my LGS, they give me a 6 to 12 month lead time for special orders. The panic has really disrupted the supply chain.

When I was talking with customer support they said that the factory was working 24/7 and shipping as fast as they are made.

I'm happy I had already beat the frenzy.

It's a total nut house from all my "inside" contacts. My LGS said he doesn't know when anything will come in for sure,they'll just show up. Things are real slow but fairly steady coming in. They are real good about not selling bulk to hoarders and real good to "us" regulars. Prices are up,but not gouging high like most are. Pays to be a regular both ways.

Yes, they are producing AR's everyday, but realize that AR's are NOT S&W primary focus. Their AR program is TINY compared to companies that do nothing, but produce AR's.

i have read that the AR's are already sold out and or allocated for 2013 model year. you would have to simply find one rather than order one.

they cannot even keep ammo in stock so i doubt the AR will be in stock anywhere.

I believe that all of this will settle down, I have been watching an internet site that lets locals all across the nation sell items, even firearms and ammo. A month ago Sporting style guns were bringing a premium but now they are being relisted and coming down in price. But, there always is a but, I havent seen any S&W's listed mostly Stag, Colt and Windham arms. I have seen a postings from people looking for S&W's, but none for sale.

Some LGS will have AR's, some places will have ammo. Its not across the board all the way around the nation as far as no ammo and no ARs being available. My local cabelas has been stocking .223/5.56. It does not last long but they are getting it. Just have to be there at the right time.

Stopped by LGS and they got in a shipment of 30 S&W sports today. I was glad to see they're not taking advantage of people as they're selling them for $769.
I almost wish I didn't stop by as I bought one, lol. I just couldn't pass up that price. That, and I figure it'll save some wear and tear on my M&PT.

The things we say to ourselves to justify buying a rifle, eh?

Sounds perfectly reasonable to me!

hell of a deal, mainevent...even BEFORE the madness, my LGS (which is on my no-go list for many many reasons now) priced em higher than that -- considerably. not enough options around here for good quality firearms, so they mark everything up knowing most people won't drive an hour to the bigger city and get some competition...

Around here they are going for over $1400-used! That sounds like a real good deal. I would add to my collection for that price!
