How long would you say it should take to make a stock/
Consider that the stock is being made by a "prominent" shotgun mfg in the USA.
Have had this process ongoing now for 11 weeks -- this is the 2nd time-- sent left hand instead of right hand

comments please

Apparently until it's done correctly. You may not be the only customer they have so there could be others in front of you.

Do you not think that 24 weeks is excessive? Given the first 13 and their f- up is to blame for the next 11 weeks?

Always longer than you would like. A friend had one made and there was an error / problem with one of the parts of the gun. It took a few extra weeks because they wouldn't install the sub-standard part. It had to be redone properly. Depends also on how many they have in the order bank. It is worth the wait.

Hard to believe Jeff, Mark, Keith or Cody have NOT advised you why the Delay ????? No offense intended but, Kolar people are usually very fast with their work. JMO Joe joe90t

We are not talking about a "custom" stock just what was ordered a "righthanded" straight stock, not brain surgery.

Certainly not typical of Kolar. They are always timely on their work unless it's something special. They did my twisted sister stock in the rough in 2 days while I was there.

I'd say 8-12 weeks is the norm. Mistakes happen,it's how they are resolved that makes the company.

I had to have the wood replaced on a brand new Beretta. It was 4 weeks from the day I shipped it until I had it back in my hands.

I had a custom stock done this time last year. It took an additional 8 weeks to cut the comb, install the hardware, do the finish sanding, apply the multiple coats of finish and do the checkering. Your second stock will take a similar amount of time. Jeff isn't singling you out for poor treatment, unfortunately shit happens and unfortunately, it was to you. When you finally get the new gun in your hands, it will have been worth the wait. Here is a picture of mine. Bill Malcolm

So lets recap. You ordered an off the rack dimensioned stock, which had to be made from scratch. You waited 13 weeks, and they messed up and sent you a left hand one instead of a right hand one (which I'm sure was an honest mistake). You sent it back, and they are making you a new right hand one from scratch, and its been 11 weeks so far for the replacement stock. Do I have that correct?

I guess it boils down to the fact that if they had to make your stock from scratch, they can't well pull one out of thin air, and however long it takes to make it takes to make. They messed up and sent you the wrong stock, and that sucks, but thats not going to make a new stock simply appear, its probably going to take approximately the same time frame to get the 2nd stock finished.

You really have 2 choices, cancel your order or wait for the correct stock, which by the sounds of it won't be too much longer.
