M2.0 .45 shipments

New to this forum. Looking forward to learning from all of you experts.
I have a M2.0 .45 on order through local dealer. I'm getting the impression from various sources that the .45 could be a while before shipment. Does anyone have reliable information on deliveries? Anticipated dates for regular shipments of the .45?
Thanks for any info.

Cheers

I've had a M&P 9 w/ 5" barrel in FDE on order for 4 weeks now. Dealer said no time frame as to when it's coming in. The 45 was suppose to be out later then the 9s and 40s for what that's worth.

I ended up buying a 9mm 2.0 one in black with the 4.25" barrel to hold me over until the 5" in FDE finally comes in.

Congrats on the new purchase though. It's like waiting for Christmas. I'm going crazy.

I'm getting the impression, from talking to my local dealer, that the .45 model may not be released until April or May. I don't know if anyone knows for sure, but he usually has a pretty good handle on things since he is a high volume dealer and receives shipments directly from S&W.

They`ll ship when they ship. And when there are so many other toys to play with, it`ll take your mind off from it.

Steve, it means what it means.... my source is just plain ole`common business sense... just like anything else being made/built, guns aren`t any different. We live in a society today where people just plain expect to much to fast... or should i say, people expect everything instantly today. I order a new truck every two years, it takes time for it to arrive at the dealer... guns are no different. Gun dealers put their orders in, they wait for the product to arrive, then customers pick them up. Its a "wait in line" scenario, its been like that for decades upon decades. It ships when it ships. Until then, most of us patient people find something else to do until it arrives.

As for manufacturers, they have their "pet dealers" that get their shipments before many others do. Also, if your not staffed to handle the work load, this slows down the process. And take into consideration, some companies will run off different models this month, and a different model another month. Everything is a slow process...so we wait for it to catch up. I am in a parts production business, thats just how it works. Sometimes the production line has to stop for other things to be made. Its a bigger process than you think. And i expect that from gun makers... they have ALOT on their shoulders due to federal regulations. I work for a HUGE federal regulated company that owns plants world wide... i know how it works... sometime you have to wait. It is what it is.

LOL, You didn't get it. I was teasing you. You said "It will ship, when it ships" I was saying...well yeah, obviously...are you out on a limb on that, what's your source. It was a joke. It's like saying; it will either happen or it won't...well duh thanks for the news flash

Not everyone will take your JOKE`S, the same way.
Maybe next time, say what you mean instead of playing games with people.

Hmmm... I picked up on the jest instantly, and even smiled because of it.

This is likely a case where your funny-bone may be out of socket. You might want to have that checked.

I do not post much, many times questions or suggestions are answered but once and awhile I have to post. Some folks are legends in their own mind and take forum life to serious, this is a conversation not a dissertation, lighten up
