    Wilson Combat 458 Socom rifle kits

    Anybody know what the wait time is? I ordered mine back in October and supposedly they were just waiting on barrels that were due 11/15 but I havent gotten a response to email I sent before the sandy hook deal. Just wondering if anyone has gotten their kit lately. Got my ammo I ordered at the same time as well as their 458 upper receiver but no rifle kit.

    I had an upper and a build kit on order, the upper shipped, going on the Wilson web site I can't find my order for the build kit, looks like they cancelled the BO when they filled the upper order. Gee thanks. I can place the order again and wait another six months. I have been trying to get my dealer to order me a suppressor for six months. They say Wilson won't call them back. I was there when he called Wilson and left a message. If I didn't have a bunch of brass and dies already on hand I would just quit this 458 SOCOM thing. I want one but this is just gotten to be too much damned trouble. I guess I'm stuck now since I have several hundred dollars invested in dies and brass. I am getting tired of the run-around. It ain't worth this much aggravation.

    Should not have canceled....

    Tim,
    I don't know the details of your order, but from what you are telling me, the system should not have canceled your BO. Please send jay@wilsoncombat.com an email with all the information regarding your order, and I assure you, he will look into the situation. Sorry for any confusion, and thank you for your patience.

    I hate to say it, but RRA sells a great upper 458 Socom, I bought one off GB.com at their retail price, no BS and love it!! I love my WC triggers I bought over the holidays, but there is no excuse for this... Jay, I been looking at uppers and few other things on your site, but this is not making me fell warm and fuzzy about it..

    PM sent with contact and order info.

    I'd shitcan the whole deal too but I'm pot committed with the 300 brass and 500 bucks worth of expensive ass barness ttsx bullets along with the dies. I just hope thst when I grt my kit the barrel extension is properly heat treated amd it has the bolt lug in the feed ramp as I know those were problems with the first kits sent out. I think we all expect quality from WC which is why I bought from them and I also prefer to assemble my own upper as opposed to the RRA.

    Wilson has great customer service, I never emailed them, just simply called whenever I had questions. Great guys, and always very accommodating. I would deal with them again in the future.

    I wouldn't pay to much attention to a forum post. Some have very active imaginations.
