I just got off the phone with Chris and she confirmed the first of the 44 Gunstocks I ordered will be heading this way tomorrow. First ones will be the Ebony Wood. With the 4th of July falling in the middle of the week, I’m anticipating they’ll arrive late in the week or early next week.
My understanding is there are close to 4000 of the 44’s being built so it’s going to be a while before GEC starts working on the upcoming #14. Very likely it’ll run into August before we see the 44’s finished and the 14’s started.
On the subject of the 14’s, it sounds like there will be a ‘regular’ run of the 14’s built in addition to the SFO’s. Again it’s likely the total number of 14’s with all of the SFO’s will be in the 4000 piece range. At this point the handle options haven’t been determined but with luck we may hear by the first of next week.
