Lead Times

Below is a list of lead times for our most common custom services.  If you have received a shipment notification, and your order contains any of these items, please make sure that the lead time has passed before inquiring about your order.

*Please note:
If you have more than one custom item, those lead times will stack.  Meaning if you have Barrel Reaming and Cerakote, the total lead time will be 1 week + another 6-8 weeks total.
