Backorder time?

So, I just put my deposit down on a loaded Tuesday night and I have no patience. Does anyone have an idea how long this might take? No doubt they need to assemble the special People's Republic of Khalifornia model (not Springfield's fault). I'm obviously really excited, it is my first firearm, I'll continue to root through the newb articles.

Welcome. No idea how long will it take. But you should be in the good hands with Loaded. My first 1911 (PRK special) from a decade ago and still proudly own it.

Yeah, it was close between the loaded and the mil-spec. Once I found out the difference between the specific models I was looking at was only about $150 between the two , it was a no brainier.

Hope you don’t develop an attraction for checkered front straps...there would be another $250 to $350 to spend. DAMHIKT

Right now everybody is backed up what with everybody and their mother wanting a gun. I will say you picked a good one but should have saved a little more money and got a TRP.

I'm from the PROM, and about to try and order the MC Operator. My FFL says none available with no ETA. I feel your pain.

Yeah, I've been drooling all over that site, but it's my first firearm, so I just thought this was the "better" option. I did send in an inquiry, we'll see if they respond.

I have a SS Range Officer. Love it. IMHO SA 1911's (any version) are a very good value at their respective price points. You made a good choice. Just turn up the "patience meter".

Great choice, the Loaded is one of the best 1911s you can get for the money in California or anywhere. When I was living there I bought an MC Operator and it's still one of my favorite guns. No way to guess how long yours will take but as soon as you get the call head to the gun store and fill out the DROS paperwork because that's when the 10 day waiting period starts.

Yeah, hope it doesn't happen TOO quick, updated to a real ID, just waiting for the physical card to show up. I keep forgetting, real ID is good to go, right?

And I won't mention the parts already coming from Wilson Combat...

Driver's license with real ID feature is good to go. Just had my DROS 2 weeks ago.

Very much like our beloved 1911, old school simple, a **** ton of redundancy, and so perfect for the job it was designed for that they can't get right of it.

Hopefully one of the parts you have on order from Wilson is a slide stop. My Springfield is the only 1911 that was difficult to re-assemble because of the slide stop and I quickly replaced it.

I'd recommend going slow replacing the other parts, shoot the gun stock and make sure everything is working fine. That way you'll know if the new parts caused any issues. After several years I just replaced my hammer, trigger components, and ambi safety with Ed Brown parts and very happy with the results.

I do plan to strip it to clean and check for burrs. I have heard about the slide stops having issues with parting lines. I am thinking about replacing the ambi safety, but I'm still researching on how to fit it.
