None the less just under 4wks.

I just left their location. I ordered on 12/25. I was able to walk in and do paperwork on the spot. Very friendly lady at the front. Now it's a 10 day waiting. I'm glad they are not jacking up the prices.

Who did you email or what address did you use? I emailed and hadn't gotten anything back. I'm still waiting on a lower from mid December.

When I was there the phone was ringing like crazy. The lady at the front told me they are really busy over there. I emailed before and never got a response. That's the reason I decided to drive out there. It was a long drive but worth it in my opinion.

I ordered a 556 upper and lower on the 12th and went back on the 19 and added a 308 upper and lower. I was told 10-12 weeks.

Update: I placed my order on 1/18 and just received an email today (1/25) requesting FFL info. So that is a pretty quick turn around considering the times.

I will update when I get more info.

Keep in mind guys, that when they ask for the FFL info they're just starting to process the order. So you still have a 2-3 months to wait before they DROS / ship etc.

not to burst anyone bubble but I figure I should set a few people straight.

Placed a telephone order with Jodi on 12/20/12 for the MIL discount. They already had my FFL info on file.

I still haven't heard anything.

Reached someone on the phone today (male) and they are having "trouble finding my order."

They said they will call me back...

Not holding my breath.

What irks me is folks who placed orders after the fact have already received them. I have no issues with waiting, just like being kept in the loop.

Are you all having to play for a gun lock?

They charged me for one but I didn't have my Safe Affidavit form handy, and they told me they have to because its a new law...I'm sick of buying these things as I'm sure you all are too. Stuff like this makes me not want to purchase anything in the future from JD machine, even if they do have a nice product.

I'm wondering what they would do if you brought this in when you purchase your receivers, since they make you purchase the lock in advance, before you pickup.

Sounds like most people didn't have the luck I did. I went right in their office since it is only a few miles away and ordered mine on 12/19. Filled out all paperwork and paid right then. On 12/29 I called them and they said they had some in stock so I drove the 10 minutes there and picked mine up.

Retired military and retired LEO along with active military and current LEOs. Its a 10% discount which is really good especially since it is not like they are hurting for business and everyone else is out to hike up prices.

Niteqwill, how did you get ahold of someone there? I've been trying to call with no luck. I would like an order status as well. Does anyone know of a way to get through by email?

I just ordered 2 lowers from them on Monday and they told me that there are two (2) waiting lists. Walk-ins and online orders. They said that walk-ins are about 12-14 weeks and online orders are about 5-6 months.

Don't wanna stir anything up, those guys are great and doing the best they can under the circumstances especially since I get a 10% disabled veterans discount!! Who does that in this craziness?!?! Just thought I'd let people know so they aren't freaking out after a couple weeks. It's gonna be a while people.

Yes however; due to the backlog and law, you need to be present to fill out paperwork, once the lower is near ready for pick-up they will submit the p-work (starting the 10-day wait), and then you can pick it up when ready.

regardless of how you order it, you will need to be physically present twice. If it's just a lazy day drive for, I suggest driving one fine Saturday, do the p-work/pay, and then come on down again to pick it up. There are many fine places to spend an afternoon at including Sea Port Villiage and 5th Ave (aka - the Gaslamp).

Ordered 12/23/2012 and haven't heard a peep from them. I didn't know how to fill out the order form, as it has to go to the FFL for DROS (I am not really local to them) so I just put my lady's name, and my FFL's info for address, and e-mailed them about why I did so (as I know that they can ship direct to some free states), and I cannot even get a hold of them by phone. I have shot like 4-5 e-mails, and called like 20 times (left a message like 6 times).

I have no idea what to do, other than trek down there with the lady, and then trek back down there for pickup... I want to use my local FFL, but not a dang word from these peeps in over a month... AND it was IN STOCK, and I actually got the one I did because it was the receiver that had no "This item is backordered. There may be a delay in shipping" when I purchased it. My FFL said that JD had my FFL on file.

I didn't have these issues with other lowers from other states, but one IN-STATE with these issues with communication is ridiculous.

These guys are really pissing me off.

I didnt get gouged on the price so I can wait. I ordered online a few days before you did. I have a feeling the folks that pickup from the location get preference.

If you go to their website and create an account, you can look at your order status. Unfortunately mine just says "pending", but I assume once things start moving that may change.

Anyway: https://www.jdmachinetech.com/LOGN.html

You can look up the order with your email and billing zip.

likely not. I ordered an upper from them and it has since been shipped, arrived, and installed but the order status page still says pending. I think they are focusing on other things than updating their site

Finally got through, spoke to Jodie to confirm if she has my FFL info since they didn't reply to my email. Was told my order placed on 1/23 was approximately 4-6 weeks out.

I placed an order in person on 1/4. They originally told me it should be ready in 4-5 weeks and to call for status. I stopped by their location today and was told that they just DROS'd all orders from 1/2 and to come or call in 2 weeks and it should be ready.

I placed an order online 1/22, credit card charged right away. I got the FFL request email today. Hopefully it won't be 4-5 months for them to ship.
