I ordered an 18.5" with ghost rings about a month ago for my son's 16th b-day. We still have a few weeks but, judging by what I've seen locally and online, I'm not very optimistic even tho the dealer I ordered from said I'm the only one on his wholesaler's waiting list. Thankfully, he's not gouging me on the price either. It is encouraging that Mossy says they are steady cranking them out tho. Like someone else here said, the wait has given us time to get some stuff together for it so he'll not only get the gun, he gets to slap on his favorite mods right away.
