Default JD Machine Lower Receiver Backorders (direct purchase)

I was wondering if anyone has had their order ship for any JD Machine lower receivers since December. I know their backorder time is 8-12 weeks at the moment, but I am wondering if anyone that had placed their order in December or recently and has had their order ship.

I place my order on 12/29 and have not received any shipping notification to my FFL.

Thank you to anyone else who has ordered and can provide information.


MODS: If this is the wrong forum please move.

Thanks for the info! Did they send you any email notification, or did you see your order status change on their website?

They did not send me any email. They actually ignored an email I sent to them. I did not check the website for the status. It just showed up and my FFL notified me.

Yes, you can do everything at their San Diego location. I ordered two lowers from them last week and they gave a lead time of 12-14 weeks, and mentioned that they are behind by about 4000 lowers

Edit: I did this in person

I ordered 3 lowers on 12/23 and received an email on 1/3 from them asking for my FFL info - but nothing since. I think I'll email my FFL and see if they showed up.

I ordered my Calgun's lower from their booth at the Cow Palace gun show last week. They quoted me a 10-12 week lead time. I'm in the same boat, lead times don't really matter to me. It's the lower I want and I'm not settling for anything else!

Iwindsurg- how do they go about contacting your FFL? did you give them the info or do you have to wait until its ready to ship? I might just order one myself, even if i do have to wait.

I placed an order on December 18 for a Calguns lower. They contacted me on the 26th saying they needed my FFL info to process the shipment. I sent the FFL info back to them on the 26th.

Still haven't heard anything. Contacted my FFL and they don't have it, been trying to call and email JD machine and nobody has responded to me.

Just a note on JD machine, I'm local and they are a great shop. They are just super swamped now and can't take calls because the phone is ringing off the hook. My friends ordered lowers on the 26th and picked them up last week, they are about 4weeks behind I believe they just got the order in before the major rush.

Keep in my they have not raised prices since the ****e storm and are great shop with honest people. They even gave me a tour of the facility a few years ago and showed me every step of the process, even let me check out Jesse's private gun safe with tons of toys!!! Again great people and I would not hesitate to do business with them.

I ordered 12/19. They contacted me to ask where to FFL but not shipped yet.

Seems like best bet is to go to location.

I literally just ordered two today. I was told to expect 60-90 days. As they will be engraved with a Minuteman vice custom serial numbers, I'm okay with that. (My son is leaving for Army BC the end of Feb and one will be a gift for him, the other for me.)

I ordered the Calguns JD lower from my LGS in early november. At the time they told me it would be 2-4 weeks. They purchased it from Rifle Gear. After 4 weeks I called and the LGS said they had no idea when it would show up. Ive been calling weekly ever since...no luck. So, after reading this thread I ordered another direct from JD. Anyone wanna place a bet on which one gets here first? Or if I ever get one at all....

I ordered a .308 matched set from them on December 17 in the store. I picked up in the store on January 15. Tried calling several times but could never get thru. I just decided to go there and see if it was ready.

What is that? The model says Trident, does it have a meaning or is it just a design?

Anyone know if they might be open today? Some locations are closed for the holiday. I did not want to make a long driver to just turn around. I tried calling but I can never get anyone on the phone.

I ordered my first one 12/30 and walked in 11 days after and walked out with my lower and near complete upper. decided on a second build for my girlfriend and ordered last week and was told ~12 weeks. said DOJ is backed up on DROS and didn't seem like it was all their fault for the back up. said DOJ had a lot of delays on DROS. was told they'll call me once DROS goes through and at time will be given a pick up date.

You need to be there in person to fill out and sign the paperwork. When the lower is near ready for completion they will run the DROS papers and then, 10 days later, you can pick up in person.

This is as described last week.

2 lowers OTD with custom laser engraving, fees, and taxes - just a tad over $300. Think about that next time you see some jackwagon here selling them for $500 (or trade for 2k rds of something).

The billets for $150+shipping are from floridaarms.com. He's got 80% for $105 I think and 100% for $150. I've been emailing the guy and he is very responsive to my emails. Just have FFL email him the information and send a check, no CC. He said he is about 6 weeks out.
