My order went from July to September. They just announced it being delayed on their Facebook and YouTube.

I saw 3rd qtr fir being caught up with the backlog and that 5.56 was ready to go into production and it should move in larger quantity than the 308 because leassons learned and ramp up being done. My 5.56 conversation always said sept.

My order got pushed back from August to October when they gave their Apr. 30 update. My order continues to say mid October.  It sounds like the initial 223 orders are delayed (from June 30 update) but mine isn't. I assume initial production is delayed a bit, but they anticipate ramping up production at a faster pace than they did/are doing with the 308.  Of course, all of this is conjecture.

Once they finish getting out the 308 backlog  they will only need to do batches as they run low. So i would think almost all MDR production would switch to 5.56 and since the only real difference is the bolt head, ejector/chute plates, and barrel/gas block they should be going super quick

I called DT yesterday to check on the status of my 5.56 order, and I was told two things: The 5.56 rifles will start shipping in September, and my rifle (which is in the middle of the pack) will ship in October.

We shall see.

Since I initially ordered my 5.56 MDR it has gone from July to October and was now just changed to December.

If the gun laws change here before my MDR is released, I assume that I would be subject to any such changes that happen before I get my rifle, correct?

Thanks you

When did you preorder? I’d like to know approx what the “middle” of the orders are.

You don't own a firearm until you do the 4473.  What are you anticipating changing in the next 120 days or so?

Kurt,

I’m not  anticipating any law specifically. It just seems like there are a lot of -ones out there now which may go into affect in the near future. I just wanted to make sure I get it before a negative law comes into effect that may impact the purchase.
