I wanted to buy a better barrel for my 77/22 and chose a Shilen SS .920 from Midway. Problem is I had to wait a month. On Feb. 14th I ordered the barrel, 30 day backorder. Yesterday was 30 days, no barrel yet. Called Midway and they said it could be another couple of weeks, so I cancelled the order.
Seeing now that I waited a month, I looked at the Lilja Precision website and they offer a 21 inch, SS .920 barrel for $375.00. I looked at Midways price of $449.99. I called Midway and asked why the barrel is less expensive from the manufacturer, it's usually cheaper as Midway gets a better deal because of the dealer status. All they said is they cannot lower the price to $375.00.
So, I called Lilja and ordered the barrel which went out UPS yesterday afternoon. That's fast service! Midway could take a lesson from Lilja's customer service!
