    I think it was 1980 when I walked into my LGS and plunked down, cash, the full payment for a Ruger No. 1 in .45-70. A year later almost to the day I returned, receipt in hand, and asked for my money back. And got it. His story was, Ruger had devoted a year's production to some commemorative model (honoring Lyman as I recall). I still don't own a No. 1.

    Yep, order still placed but my money and focus is now on Staccato.
    Too bad really, Dan Wesson would have sold a ton of them.

    I understand your frustration... I I would hope Sig is not building on a per order basis but it's beginning to appear that way. I ordered an MPX with an LEO discount also and was told, “at least 90 days.” They’re not even apologetic about it either

    Have you tried an online search? Took me about 20 seconds to find multiple MPX's in stock.

    This is a distributor issue and not the manufacture. Plenty of them out on the street.

    Small shops don't seem to have any clout with the big distributors any more. If shops don't move hundreds of guns every week, they don't count.

    That said, I'm pretty sure that Sig is dedicating the lion's share of their production capacity to fulfill their Federal contracts for the M17 and XM5.
