Model 1 has definately improved since the obama-mama panic a few years ago. I ordered a 300 whisper barrel and a few mags a couple of days ago and I too, received UPS confirmation to be received Monday. Great service.
Oh yeah, they even answered an email I sent them asking about availability of the special 300 whisper barrel. Amazing!!!
I rmemeber when it was taking a month just to fill the orders.
Gotta love it.
