Title: Current delivery date for people who pre-ordered through DT? I see 05/15/17
Post by: whenyougottogo on December 08, 2016, 07:42:00 PM
As of 3:36 PST when I log into my DT account and click on 'My Orders' it shows a deliver date of Dec/15/2016.

I highly doubt this is accurate as this date has changed 3 or 4 times now.

I'm wishfully hoping that I'll be part of the first batch out potentially in Jan 2017.

Anyway! Curious as to what other people are currently seeing?

Edited: Title to reflect current delivery date

Wish I had something to look at for mine but I ordered from a dealer who supposedly has some already allotted to them. I'll just have to wait and see....

Mine still says Feb after the last slip to the right. Wish it was in a week.

Middle of February still.

Ordered early to mid May.

Mine still shows February 02, 2017, so, it's still on time as of the last delay.  :)

I'm feeling like my delivery date isn't very accurate, especially after the Nov 1st update where Nick Young said, "Our goal was to get the first batch of MDR's completed in December but a number of small unexpected delays have pushed it into January." Then in this month's update he said they were still on track with the previous months update.

I ordered the day pre-order went live (Jan 19th I think).

Who knows maybe it will be an extra merry Christmas  :o, but it seems more likely that at least another month will be added to my delivery date.

If you do indeed get yours next week in some ways it will be a very merry Christmas for all of us as that means they are shipping and 'out in the wild'. We should also see a number of reviews posted next week if that is the case as the NDAs should be lifted.

If not, then as you said we are still in the January shipping timeframe.

Oh for sure! I scan through different youtubers almost daily looking for some sort of "MDR first looks" video :)

My delivery date has said December 22nd for at least 2 months, certainly well before the latest update. I don't expect to actually see it until the end of January at the earliest. I'd be ecstatic if I had it before Christmas though.

I can almost guarantee that once the MDR starts getting in the hands of regular Joes, there will be a plethora of Youtube videos of people ridiculously torturing the ever living s*** out of this rifle. People have been waiting too long, and once they get it, many are going to want to know that it was worth the wait. After such a long build-up, people are going to expect this rifle to survive a Martian invasion involving anything and everything you can imagine, and still shoot sub MOA.

I can only guess at the anger should a someone receive a lemon, at this point.

I have no problem getting my MDR as indicated by their website in February. Also, I do not torture (abuse) any of my firearms and would definitely not be abusing this rifle. I went through almost 2 years of waiting to get my FN SCAR 17 and didn't feel the ridiculous need to abuse that rifle and never did. I have no interest in abusing this one once I receive it. And the MDR costs less than my FN SCAR 17.

It took about 2 years to get my SCAR 17. I placed the order for my MDR in February this year and the website indicates delivery in February 2017. That's one year. That's a year less than the delivery of my SCAR 17. I don't understand the whining? It took another 4-6 months to be able to get extra SCAR 17 magazines.

Unlike the MDR, the SCAR has an established track record in combat, and is military tested
and approved.  The MDR is brand new (scratch that, does not yet exist), and there is zero proof
out there that it is reliable. It is going into people's hands with zero track record of any type. People are going to want to know what this rifle is capable of after waiting as long as they have.

I won't be doing any insane tests, only because I don't want to risk damaging it. But I will
keep my eyes open and be reading any and all range reports that you guys will be writing about long
before I decide to buy, lol.

Perhaps the marketing people are also in charge of the website and the part that calculates estimated delivery dates, would you trust that date under that scenario?  :-[

I don't know who is involved in updating the website. I definitely don't know whether the marketing people are in charge of the website, but, I doubt it. They have one job and that is marketing, not, manufacturing, testing, packaging, shipping and IT. Your scenario is illogical. Since DT executives have already addressed the main reason for the delay (contractor issue), I have no reason to doubt the accuracy of the listed estimate of delivery date. Nor do I intend to whine, cry, and gnash my teeth because the estimated delivery date has been moved forward because of human created issues beyond the control of the manufacturer.

If I'm on the highway headed in to work and a drunk driver smashes his car into mine causing me to be late for work, that is something manmade that is beyond my control. I'm no going to be whining about something I can't control (being late for work). No point in it.

You actually believed that? The timeline and additional delays don't add up. It smelled like BS the moment I heard it.  Everything that's happened since is basically par for the course in with my personal experience behind the curtain at larger company's.

That being said, I hope they take as much time as they need to get the rifle right.  The MDR ticks lots of boxes for me and I hope it turns out to be a great rifle.   In that sense i'm happy they delayed rather than releasing something that was not quite ready.

Post by: INV136 on December 14, 2016, 11:51:19 AM
I have no reason or "evidence" to not believe that the contractor's labor strike wasn't the cause of the delay. If I recall correctly the strike caused a 7 week delay. If you really think DT executives are a bunch of liars, then why would you considering doing any business with them at all? I wouldn't if I thought that. If I believed as you do I wouldn't believe anything DT has to say about all of their products.

There is an old court theory that says if a witness lies once then everything he says cannot be trusted. Your statements are contradictory. On one hand you say DT is being untruthful about the contractor's employees strike. I guess in your mind people never go on strike. On the other hand you say you hope they take as much time as they need to get the rifle right. Why would you want to buy a rifle that you believe is made by a bunch of liars?  ::)

The thing is, this rifle is completely new. It has passed no tests of any kind. Unlike the Tavor, Steyr AUG,
AR15, AK type rifles that people designate as their "bug-out" rifles, this one has no history to stand
on.  Many people are looking to this rifle to become their mainline SHTF rifle. Why would you trust
your life to a rifle that has zero history and no proof that it even functions properly?  I want to see this rifle be put through worst-case-scenario tests before I decide to buy it. At this point, the Keltec RDB
has a better track record of reliability than the MDR (because the production MDR still doesn't exist, as of yet).

The MDR is being tested to NATO performance requirements.  If DT releases the test results, that, to me, would put it in good standing.

I think most people will be very interested in seeing those results. Even still, I would
like to see the random MDR sold to the common Joe also being tested by reviewers or people
in general. Just in case the NATO tested ones were given a little more attention during final assembly.
Also, once the MDR starts making it into the hands of hundreds or even thousands of average people,
problems might begin to emerge that wouldn't have risen with a smaller sample size.

I wouldn't put KelTec as an example to compare to the Steyr Aug, AR15, and AK that you used as to having passed any tests. I never had an RDB (which is not comparable because it is a 5.56), but I did have an RFB (.308 which is a better comparison) and that gun did have issues out of the box. KelTec had great customer service and fixed the first issue fast. I give them credit for that. However that RFB had a really cheap, brittle plastic feel which I didn't like. The Steyr Aug stock is also made of polymers, but, it feels a hell of a lot more durable and much tougher than that RFB. I didn't even put that RFB through "...worst case-scenario tests..." as you describe them and it still didn't function as it should have.

I have found that I don't need to abuse any of my weapons to find the ones that are lemons. I bought one of the first Colt Delta Elite 10mm pistols and it was brand new out of the box. I never got to shoot it because I always clean my newly received guns before I shoot them. This gun was a brand new lemon out of the box. I noticed that the thumb safety would not engage. I put so much force on that safety that the plunger tube (and spring inside) broke off completely from the side of the frame. I immediately took it back to the dealer for an immediate refund. I had a friend who also purchased one exactly like mine and his did the same thing.

All of my other rifles I did not abuse and found them to be very reliable over the years. I've had Colt AR15, HK 91, HK 93, FN FAL, various AK 47 rifles (several Chinese, a Yugoslav, and one American made Arsenal Inc.), Galil AR .308, and several others. I've never abused any of them and I've always felt confident in all of them after taking them to the range a few times. That RFB was one of the few that I immediately did not feel confident in after one range trip. No abuse or torture necessary. I got rid of it. I also had a brand new DSA FAL that had issues and I sold it. You can destroy your own MDR when you get one, that's your privilege and your business. I will never do that to my firearms. I intend for them to function for a long time. I'll be satisfied if it works as advertised after a couple of range sessions. Torture free.

Here's the difference. Every rifle you mentioned, besides the RFB, has a proven military service history. Their platforms have passed muster. You don't need to test them because the military has already done so and given them their approval. Most of them have later been confirmed in wars.

Sure, you might be lucky and discover that your rifle is a lemon when you unbox it, or you might discover that later, after 2k rounds downrange. The last thing you want is for your rifle to unexpectedly fail when you are defending your life. This has been a concern for those who use their weapon professionally.

I can reasonably expect my rifle to serve me in a serious situation if I choose to buy an AR from a
reputable company, or I buy a Tavor. All of those have already been vetted.  The MDR doesn't have
any of that whatsoever. It would have been foolish to assume that an early version RFB was combat ready. They may be now, but at the time they were experiencing major issues. Imagine something like that happening in a lethal scenario.  Why would you do the same with the MDR without any
proof to its reliability?

Mind you, I'm not going to abuse any rifle that I might rely upon, but I'm probably not going to go through with a purchase until I see proof from others, and after reading/watching numerous range reports online.
of other owners.

As mentioned before I always take my new forearms to the range a couple of times before I carry them, regardless of whether their counterparts have been military tested or not. I've had (very rarely) issues with even Colt AR15 rifles I have had that were brand new. I had a Colt 6920 model lock up with an unfired cartridge stuck inside the chamber after firing a couple of rounds at the range. I had to wait for the gun to cool down before I could finally pull the bolt back, ejecting the unfired cartridge. Battle tested or not any weapon can and sometimes (rarely) does. I understand and accept that. That is why I don't care whether a new design has been battle tested or not.

I rely on the company to take care of the testing for flaws or other design issues. But, I also take any new gun to the range several times to be personally satisfied with it. That policy has served me well for the last 40 years. We used to have a local gun shop owner who also shot 1911 pistol competitions. He always preached test firing all newly purchased guns that you buy before carrying them. That was regardless of the reputation (battle tested, proven reputation, etc.) of the manufacturer. And he was correct.

In any event, I'm on the pre-paid order and will be happily receiving my MDR without reservation. I will also take it to the range several times before depending on it. But, also, even with all of my other rifles, I always have a pistol (defensive weapon) as a backup in the event that the rifle or other long arm fails. Then it's just a matter of quick transition from rifle to pistol. So, no, I'm not afraid of the MDR being a new (non-battle proven) design.

I suppose if you want to take manufacturer's claims at face value, you should feel free to do so.
For my peace of mind, I just want some additional evidence before I make a purchase.

There is an old court theory that says if a witness lies once then everything he says cannot be trusted.

This is a lawyer's logic trick - it is also a fallacy. The old "were you lying then, or are you lying now" and "you lied about that, why should we believe you now" assertions.

Everybody lies - everybody. At some time in our life we have all lied about something.

That doesn't mean that just because we lie about one thing that we lie about everything.

It is the job of marketing to embellish the truth - to sell the product. Not unheard of for marketing to outright lie. Those of us that are responsible for actually making a product usually have no control over what marketing and sales tells the buyer. That does not mean what we produce is crap, it means buyer beware and to not believe everything that marketing and sales tells you.

Is the MDR a bullpup rifle with interchangeable barrels?

Yes.

Will it be everything that DT tells us it will be?

That remains to be seen.

Which is why I am waiting until it gets into the hands of some third party reviewers and owners who will share their experiences with us before I buy one - if I buy one.

That's not what I was referring to. Not whether a lawyer asserts whether a witness or suspect lied to the police and then tells a different story on the witness stand. I'm referring to the court honored tradition (judge not the attorney's) of once a witness or suspect lies under oath on the witness stand, none of his/her testimony holds any weight in that proceeding and is held as suspect by the judge.

No, nothing from DT other than the Christmas promotion/sale. Nothing from my local dealer either that I selected to have it shipped to either.

Not at all surprised by this, I'm just hoping they don't experience any more major setbacks and that their recent estimates for delivery are based on conservative estimates.

I'm on a hard science RPG list for Traveller, a RPG that's been around since the late 70s, that at one time had quite a few eccentric personalities.  It seems that whenever one of the habitual flamewar threads came up (Near C rocks, piracy in the 3d Imperium, female Aslan in comfortable shoes, etc.) back in the day, one of these folks would eventually drive it to some sort of **** comparison.  Thus whenever someone played a "Godwin's Law flag" on the thread it was a subtle signal for everyone to retreat to their corner and take a pause before things got really out of hand.

Part of the problem was that you had traditional sci-fi gamers who knew enough about science to sound knowledgeable and run roughshod over their own gaming groups, but when confronted by people who really knew what they were talking about (and at one time we counted several JPL researchers as listmembers, not to mention comp-sci and engineering professors and professionals...) things got heated when "I know" slammed head first into "the truth".

Well personally I'm going to wait how it will handle IV8888 (youtuber) meltdown of the MDR.  I'm still waiting for the tavor meltdown. Well I hope he does a tavor meltdown. That would be a great torture test

The meltdown videos are "cute", but beyond that, they really don't do much for me other than I get a chance to waste 20 minutes watching some rednecks destroy a rifle by making it do something that it would never be made to do "in the wild".  It's interesting in a dick measuring perspective, but beyond that, I rather see the rifle be subjected to measured tests that will actually test it against specific criteria. 

If you want to really impress me, and show viewers that you're really interested in doing a viable test, subject the rifle to some of the tests that the SIG-550 was subjected to or just use the NATO test standards.

Assuming you didn't get the reference (or for anybody who didn't, if you were just being humorous), I was referring to the place in Vegas where you can shoot a wide selection of full-auto weapons.  There are some very lengthy conversations over at AR15.com where the main guy discusses how various weapons have performed in their very high round count environment.  They have many guns with over 100,000 rounds through them, with detailed logs of everything including repairs and failures.  The threads I read focused on ARs, AKs, and handguns.  It was all rather fascinating--a very different data source compared to the typical Internet gun expert.

True they weren't meant for that but never the less it is entertaining IMO and if does a better job comparing to other rifles or pistols all the more better.

The status being changed to "Processing" was a pleasant surprise to say the least.  My ship date also remains unchanged at 2 Feb, However!  I added in the 300 Black Out to the order when they came available and I was informed on order that it *MAY* delay me receiving my rifle on the expected date.  I am good with that.

Backed out of the Bullpup forum pre-order when I found out how good the Mil/LE discount is through DT.  Yes its that good and if you can you should.  Placed my order 22 Feb of this year. Status is "processing" for delivery on 2nd of February...2017ish. Still optimistic but its better to just forget about it and be patient.

My name is Russ Wallis.  I'm the Vice President of International, Military and LE Sales here at Desert Tech.  Nick, my Operations Manager just came to me about the previous post.  I need to clarify some things. 

Desert Tech does not do discounted sales as a norm to Prior Military and LE.  This would circumvent our loyal dealers and we are not in the business of doing that, nor do we have the man power in my division to keep up with that demand.  There were some guys who took advantage of a year end Mil/LE sale that I had and we are wrapping up the MDR portion of that now.

If you are Active Duty Military or Law Enforcement, feel free to contact me directly and I can work with you once certain requirements are met. 

If you are Prior Duty, please contact one of our many dealers and see if they do a Mil/LE discount.

Respectfully,

This sense of entitlement irritates me. As an active duty member, I certainly appreciate and take advantage of discounts that companies offer to military members...but I never expect it. We're customers just like everyone else, and companies still need to run a profitable business. They could jack up their prices for everyone else to offer a discount for veterans as well, but DT made the decision to keep the prices lower for everyone instead. Even if they didn't offer any military/LE discount at all, I could still respect that decision. We're not entitled to a discount at others' expense.

As a combat veteran of the war in Iraq, I agree. I was active duty in the USMC and never once
felt entitled to additional social rewards or special treatment. I generally don't expect discounts when eating out or shopping. I don't ask for them, and will rarely even accept them when offered. Being in the military isn't about 'what you get in exchange for it.'  You do your time honorably, leave the service and then move on with your life. I would like to think that most veterans would agree with this.

I don't see it as a sense of entitlement; I see it as appreciating (supporting) those who appreciate me.  It's disappointing an American company like Desert Tech doesn't honor veterans as much as a company like CZ.  They certainly don't have to yet they still do.

CZ's appreciation has earned my loyalty.   It doesn't hurt that their customers service and products are awesome too.

As a veteran, I'm not going to turn down a 5-20% discount on any product or service, especially if that discount is presented as an earned benefit honoring the common values & principles we Americans hold dear. I am honored and humbled by businesses and their owners who allocate for this discount which certainly takes a bite out of their profits. It's a very "put your money where your mouth is" way for a business to show their values to their customers, and consequently does have an impact on their bottom line.

Further, as a veteran I'm not going to complain when a company does not go out of their way to offer a military discount. I volunteered on my own accord and expect nothing in return but the paycheck I earned and the benefits allocated us by congress. And the free cheeseburger on Veterans Day? s*** we're making out like bandits.

Mil discount is appreciated sure, but not expected. Also it's frustrating as there is no Desert Tech dealer in my state to inquire about a prior military service discount.

Looks like we should be seeing updated delivery dates/time frames on Jan 10th. I'll share whatever I see on my account.

I had placed my order for the 5.56 variant so who knows where/when that's gonna land.

Considering switching to the .308 version as I just want a rifle in hand when available. . . decisions, decisions. My original goal was 5.56, cheaper shooting, and then get the 6.5 creedmoor conversion (when available) for long distance. I've already done three ar-10 style rifles so a 16in .308 has a lot less appeal to me.

edit:
I posted this in another thread, but DT advised me that if I was to change my order I should do it before the 10th. I've done so, so hopefully I get an accurate time frame adjustment to my account on the 10th!

Dido what a lot of you said. Plus CZ is a far larger company, who has been in business much longer, with a vastly larger arsenal of merchandise. Not all companies can afford to offer discounts. DT has put everything into developing the MDR. They might not have any wiggle room. Maybe after they recoup from their initial investment, they'll offer perks. Plus we got it at the old price. It cost them so much money just to develop, they are now raising the price. It's a nice courtesy, but I choose business for its products and not a coupon they might offer.

My expected delivery date is April 25th. This has me scratching my head however, since their January update referenced shipping in March and perhaps even in February. Since I ordered mine in 308 the first day the preorder opened, then who is getting theirs in Feb/Mar? Or did their parts get delayed again?

Well if DT would have been on the ball an got some videos of MDR's out, an sent some rifles to reviewers to stir the pot so to speak,  they could put alot of us more at ease about this rifle. Instead of having to refund deposits. Also if they would pay their suppliers that have been sitting on parts orders that haven't been paid in months would help get parts for this gun delivered. Kinda common sense. I'm interested in 6.5 CM version in 19" so probably be couple years yet for me.

How do you know they haven't?  Now that the rifles are essentially "in production", it would be very easy to seed them to reviewers with an NDA that prohibits them mentioning or showing it until an embargo is lifted, most likely Jan 17th, as that's a date that DT has tossed around lately (SHOT Show).

If I was DT, that's how I would do it, otherwise you'd have the reviewers stealing your thunder.

Well if DT would have been on the ball an got some videos of MDR's out, an sent some rifles to reviewers to stir the pot so to speak,  they could put alot of us more at ease about this rifle. Instead of having to refund deposits. Also if they would pay their suppliers that have been sitting on parts orders that haven't been paid in months would help get parts for this gun delivered. Kinda common sense. I'm interested in 6.5 CM version in 19" so probably be couple years yet for me.

I've been keeping up on the delays and I don't know anything about DT not paying their suppliers. Nor did I read anything about nonpayment to suppliers resulting in parts being held up by these so-called suppliers. The only cause of any delay that I have read about was a contractor's employee labor strike (nothing to do with Desert Tech in any way). Sounds like you are fabricating this non-payment to parts suppliers nonsense.  ::)

yeah, the non payment to suppliers is based on the word of a, supposed, x-employee.


Just checked my account on DT's website and my delivery date is still the same, March 25th.

Yes the Russians hacked DT and found the info in the emails and leaked it out.  Sorry couldn't resist!

That's actually quite a common practice in all industries where parts are made. Idk why it is but I see it all the time (specifically when a larger company deals with a smaller company- not that DT is huge by any means, but it is most likely bigger than the companies it is dealing with).

Another one from SE PA! That now makes at least three of us that I know of for sure.

Hopefully your time in the range will be much more fun than when I last did that. (That gun had problems.)

Keep in mind that doing any work on the gun—adding a sight, etc.—must be done in the range, and thus under the clock.

I think it's safe to guarantee that yours will arrive first since I'm sticking with 5.56.

I was expecting to be among the first since I put my order in during the first hour.  :(

Hopefully by then my J68 should be working properly and we can have multiple bullpup fun.

I ordered through EuroOptic. They will ship it to Trop, where the $25 transfer fee will be worth it to avoid that loooong drive. I haven't bothered to call to check the date, since I doubt any date they were given is very reliable that far out.

I was under the impression that we had to wait to place a second order.

Two different GB/pre-orders via different vendors.

I'm new on here so I'm not too sure if this was already discussed, but I got word yesterday that the .223 conversation kits will start shipping in September.  The complete .223 rifle orders will ship 1st starting in July.  I also asked about the slim mount for the red dot that attaches to the gas block that I've been seeing in their videos.  It does in fact come with the red dot, which is awesome.

  I had to wait a while to get my LE pricing approved so I didn't preorder until last month, and I'm still being told my .308 order should ship in June, which is great news.  Once again, if this was already covered I apologize for the redundancy.  I just thought I'd share with you guys.

Thanks for sharing. So your saying the red dot mount comes with the red dot?

Last I heard, if we want the red dot, we notify Sgt_P when we send our FFL. Is that still true? Thanks.

I ordered directly through DT, so I am not sure how you guys are doing things with the preorder.  As for the slim red dot mount, I asked if I could purchase it along with red dot and I was told that it will come with the red dot for no additional fee.

Just realized its March today!

Barring any additional setbacks (please oh DT gods have grace on us) I can can finally say, "this month!"

Who am I kidding though, I can't help myself, I count down every day.

I assume that this month's update is going to be a shipping announcement.

Lets try a little reverse psychology.

DT you better not ship the MDR this month or we are going to be pissed!

Just got off the phone with DT sales rep.  I was told the first 7.62's will be shipping out 1 May 17.

6/25/17 for me. I was told I will be getting my 308 but that the 556 will come later. That was several weeks ago.

Guess we will find out if the coming of the messiah of Bullpups will appear before us on May 1 or will it be another false prediction.

Maybe there will be a "gap" between the "revelation" of the MDR and the "appearing" of a select few chosen recipients... Lol.

This made me laugh. I will see what Desert Tech has at the NRA Convention before I make any speculations. Fingers crossed for the MDR big reveal with shipping this weekend.

I have some plastic case 308 ammo that will shoot sub MOA all day long to sell you if you really believe this info you were told.  I was told at SHOT that they were going to start shipping March 1, but I failed to ask which year.
