Acquire an inline merlin
I want to get an inline merlin AC. I would prefer a wire detent body, but would probably be happy with the standard screw in detent or one of the (viking?) style detent bodies.

Long story short...called several times and emailed too many times. Closest thing to an answer I have got was the "next Friday," and "a couple weeks" responses. It seems like this is one of those shocktech sfl waiting list snipe hunts at this point. Is two + months of waiting for an actual answer/date the normal operating procedure with AKA?

Anyone have any insight as to more of these being milled anytime soon?

I'm very surprized to be honest... did you try just ordering one off the website? The wire detents ones were the most popular at release even though I've only seen like three completed ones..

Sounds pretty normal too me, they do paintball as a side business from what I've heard and very busy. I'd just order what you want from the site and wait patiently.

It has been a couple of months since my last order...took sometime to get a response, once I did, things moved quickly. Be patient, it's worth it.

Thanks to you all.
I didn't just order from the site because I wanted non-listed parts too: delrin (evo length) bolt, pull pin kit, beavertail, cocking rod.

When I ordered I grabbed a body and when they contacted me with payment I added more stuff, but for now just keep calling. they turn out awesome

Well, I decided to just order it and then wait patiently. It's really not in my nature to handle it this way because I just get too anxious when I do not know the plan or the details. Funny thing is that I tried to use my paypal balance to pay for everything and I found out that at some point there has been a $500 maximum purchase allowance imposed. This is with an account I have had with paypal for over ten years, and I had more than enough balance in my account from previous sales in early January.
Paypal sucks/rant
I mailed the check out Tuesday morning. No idea how long it will be before it will be mailed out to me. I will post here or the inline merlin thread or aka picture thread after I get it and it anno'd.

I ordered a sidewinder rebuild weeks ago and received it within a week. Props to aka

Sent this letter out last month with the parts typed out and a check.
I got it returned after about two weeks

So then I put the old envelope into a new one and put the other address from their website onto it.

Got the letter returned in about another two weeks.
I am going to call them tomorrow and try one last time to get one of these. I am not sure why there have been so many roadblocks to getting one of the rb inline merlins, but it's starting to feel like a higher power does not want me to buy one.

Any update on this? Been debating about picking up a kit from AKA myself
