I keep calling M1S and it's always busy. They must be to busy and took the phone off the hook,its ALWAYS busy.
I have the cash and want to buy a kit from them and cant. I dont want to buy from BLackthorne. Does anyone know who has kits in stock???
a friend has a model 1 kit we put around 1500 rds thur it and the bolt broke in two , right where the pin is , any body know if they warranty there parts ? damm thing tried to feed a round and everything got jammed-up a real pain in the ass to separate the two / lower and upper
Just ordered from blackthorneproducts.com in early November. Still have not gotten the kit. They have a message on their home page that warns about a 60 day wait due to bolt carriers.
The price is right, at $399 for an M4 -A3 kit. I have built two of their kits, and they are fine, no better or worse than anybody else out there.
Given the current environment, you are not going to see anything until Feb.

I figure that as long as I have the upper and lower shells, I can wait until I find parts available and priced "normaly" So far the longest I have had to wait is a month for Model 1 to send some upper bits (FA, EPC) and 2 months for a MEGA Upper and Lower. Everything else has been within a week or two, including a complete EA lower kit and lower receiver. Just shop around, most places are busting A$$ to keep us happy and in parts.
Essential Arms has the BCG from $120. Usually less than 3 weeks to deliver. They are hard to get on the phone, but when you do, they will take your order right then and there, and will charge your CC when it's ships. I ordered an aluminum stock from them, and 3 days later it arrived! This was less than 2 weeks ago.
I agree, lots of panic buying, but I see that tapering off a tad now. Not as nuts as it was in Dec/Jan. Still not back to normal.
Another vote here for Model 1 Sales. I have a CAR upper with a few K rounds through it without a hiccup, even shot some of the infamous Wolf through it!
On the down side, it was more than $400.
