Default Glockmeister backlog - anyone have their orders fulfilled?

I'm curious to know if anyone's had any orders fulfilled from Glockmeister in the recent past, as I'm trying to figure out the wait time. I tried calling and emailing Glockmeister, but have been unable to get through on the phone, and I'm only getting the automated response saying they're overwhelmed at the moment.

I ordered new mags for Glocks 17, 19, 21SF, and 26, as well as some new sights and a sight pusher tool, and that was over 2 weeks ago!

(yeah, i know there's a panic now, but just hoping to get an idea of how much longer i'll need to wait)

Probably overwhelmed with orders from all of the country's new Glock owners and their desire to rice them out with unnecessary modifications or "upgrades".

Default Don't call them, don't bother them.

Besides this Gun Frenzy everyone goes to the SHOT show in Vegas Baby.

You can't believe how backed up and busy all gun suppliers are. I received this email from GLOCKMEISTER and similar emails from other suppliers:

OUR CALL/EMAIL VOLUME IS AT A RECORD HIGH

PLEASE:
Do not call us to check on the status of your order. Due to a sharp spike in demand, it is difficult for us to estimate shipping and backorder times.

Whoops, sorry. That was actually Glockstore, not Glockmeister. GM has been pretty good about keeping me updated in the past.

Thumbs down

I ordered a $3 slide release spring from them on Jan. 4. The website said item was IN STOCK. I got an order confirmation and my CC was charged immediately. My attempts at getting lead time and/or ETS info have all been met with the same canned response re: overload that others here have posted. I don't care how backed up the industry is. $3 or $3000, this type of service is redic. At least they are consistent.

Hahaha. That's good. I've always wondered "Why all that fancy stuff?" I mean, if you put that money into instruction, ammo and range time, you'll shoot very, very well with an out of the box rig.

I've got thousands upon thousands of rounds through a bone stock G21 and my only issue has been magazine springs wearing out.

Jeepers! Thanks for the info, though.... I thought the NY hi-cap mag ban or shot show may have been the cause of the delay, but your order shows that they were overloaded before that.

Anyone out there place orders in December still waiting for their stuff?

You'd be amazed at the amount of Glock parts on Amazon these days. A lot of it in Prime too.

With no way to reliably cancel my $900 order, I'll have to pass on the amazon thing. Besides, most of the stuff I ordered isn't on amazon.

Yeah you wont find magazine, but sights, tools and small parts are generally there. I've even order the Vickers slide stop and mag release from Prime.

Finally received a shipment confirmation that all of the Glock magazines I ordered from Glockmeister a few months ago are being shipped!
