Has anyone received anything from Recreatorblanks.com recently? I ordered a receiver in May and the web site said lead times are 1-2 weeks. So far no word and the web site just say Processing. Any info on the company would be appreciated.

I ordered a couple of receivers in May also, but I'm not one bit worried. I ordered receivers for future builds before the rush and maybe the rush is now.

I ordered back in early May I think, I emailed them about a month ago and was told I'd have it by July but still no word. I was just thinking about checking in again because I'm also getting nervous.

I emailed them a couple of times with no response. I have no problem with waiting for a quality product. I wasn't sure if they were still in business but it sounds like they are. My guess is that they are busy making the products.

I order from Matt frequently and it seems orders over the last year or so take a month or two. I had one large order take about 4 months.

OK thanks everybody. Sounds like the order could take between 2-4 months. That gives me a much better idea of when I can start the build. Thanks again for all the info.

This thread is funny.

Clearly some people have never experienced a 74ullc wait before. :grin:

Don’t get me started. I paid for 10 receivers up front. I’ve lost count now... it’s been years. I hear about one or two trickling out. I know one guy who got 2 last year. I’m not holding my breath.

I bought two AKM receivers from David years ago. It took 4 months and he kept me up to date as to the progress. As I said, I have no problem waiting; but the web site told me 1-2 weeks which I thought was very fast. I just wanted to see what people had to say and now I'm less stressed about waiting.

Seems everyone has started the buying rush for the holidays. I thank everyone for the constructive input and for the knowledge.

These are usually small operations and if you figure 500 or 1000 people are like and have ordered and are waiting and they are turning out a few each day you see where this s going. Most people who are asking these questions weren't building two or three years ago when the same thing was going and wait times were 6-12 months or longer. The best thing to do is have about a dozen kits you are building and order one receiver a month once they start rolling in its like Christmas every month.

Any updates? I've emailed a few times with no response, but I have got a few emails asking me to review my "recent purchases" that I haven't received yet.

A friend ordered a "Kyhber" option receiver - Romanian "embossments" sans markings on July 11th. He received the order on July 26th.

It will be used for his Midway Md90 kit - S A R selector markings.

One of my receiver orders was also for a Khyber Pass... back in April. FML.
When I state Khyber that is the name of the menu option on Recreator's site to "do your own thing". It was a standard AKM rear trunnion model - not a folder. FWIW.

I usually just order one at a time. Seams to be a little faster. I have purchased two from him this year at different times and I want to say I may have waited a month or two. Recreator is kind of like NFA items. You just pay and forget about it until it shows up.
