I'd say Tuesday. But wait. I wouldn't buy until the price spikes and levels off. See the post below about all this...

It is my impression they can be ordered now. Placed on backorder to be shipped after the ban expired. I was told by a dealer he cancelled the order due to the price increase. I don't know the price but was told it was about twice of the law enforcement price that exists now.
I think it will be a very short window before the ban passes after the election . They still will be cheaper that what WH drums are bring now..

??? So if they are NOT "excepting orders", does that mean that they ARE ACcepting them?

No wonder their drums don't work! I can hear them now: "Isn't '0.050" ' a half inch?"!

Don't forget you are dealing with the Moonies. When they are not going door to door they are making guns. "American made"

O.T., but weren't they the ones whose company song became a favorite of the '70s - "This time we almost made the pieces fit ..."? tongue.gif
