MTG COVID 19 Shipping Update

STICKY Post:

We are happy to say that the COVID shipping delays are now minimal and aside from the following brands, you should expect orders to ship within 48 hours or less.  We do not backorder items aside from Chase Tactical as we do not know what their inventory numbers are day to day.

You can read below to see how we handled the COVID shipping crisis that we feel comfortable saying is now over aside from Chase Tactical which is experiencing huge production pressure:

If shipping progress keeps up like it is then we won’t need updates any more! “RR” SKUs ordered on the 3rd are seeing “in process” status from our distributor. So, you should have tracking numbers tonight late or tomorrow night.  glad to see them catch up as this has been insane. You guys have been the best though, we can count on one hand how many people have been challenging to serve so thanks for your patience and understanding.

08/03/20

Good news finally! Looks like the distributor is really making progress as we see orders from the 29th in process this morning! We will take what we can get! Thanks for the continued support!  Please remember to use all of our corms of communication including email when trying to reach us. Both Mike and I work full time and I rarely am able to answer phone calls during business hours and while he is great at answering chats, our full time jobs take priority.  An email via our contact page always get through though.

Thanks,

Will and Mike

07/30/20

Orders from the 24th are in process. Our updates are not every day as we only see what day the distributor is shipping if we in fact have an order from that day.  We will be gone camping and out of comms until Sunday, but you can get ahold of Mike through he chat button and he will respond or reply as he can.

thanks,

Will

RR SKUS are shipping from the 16th today! The restocked Kilroy patches and other products are shipping daily. Our M-LOK Panels are out of stock waiting on packaging materials but we believe they should be back by Monday.  We have a new series of “Defend the Republic” swag coming and the first product is a vinyl flag decal which can be found here.

07/22/20

Products with SKUs starting with “RR” are taking longer to ship than other products. Currently orders from the 14h are shipping out over today and tomorrow. There are lots of products that ship out immediately so please look at the sku under the add to cart button and if you have any questions feel free to use the contact us page to ask about shipping times. You can also still down and see prior posts as well.

07/18/20

Orders from the 10th and 11th are shipping out. Tracking numbers may arrive after the product arrives.  remember to scroll down and you will see the products that ship fast like out MTG 3 Slot M-LOK Covers. Also the Kilroy Morale Patches, Strike ASM Optic Mounts and some other items.

07/13/20

SKUS starting  with “RR” are seeing orders placed on the 6th in process and possibly shipping.  Chase Tactical orders are seeing 50/50 success with shipping and backorders. Today open Chase order customers should expect an email or call with an ETA update so they can make decisions.

07/06/20

“RR” SKU products are seeing orders shipped from the 26th today.  Still waiting on tracking numbers from the 24-25th and you May get hurt order before you get a tracking number.

07/02/20

We expect to see tracking numbers go out for the 22nd and maybe the 23rd tonight. Warehouse will continue shipping through the weekend trying to keep up. Please scroll down for info on quick shipping items. Surefire Wardens are out of stock unless inventory shows otherwise. We are planning on buying lots of them when you come back.

07/01/20

Seeing orders from June 22nd “in process” but no shipped even from the 20th.  So, its very likely that you will see the products on your door before you get a tracking number.  Sorry for the delays.  Chase tactical gear should be assumed out of stock unless their site shows it as in stock.  If you have a wishlist of items you are waiting for in stock please create an account! Then email us the list of items you are willing to pr-order and we will invoice you and grab them for you when we see them pop up at the distributor.  Easy peasy, and we can pass on saving to you that way as well.

06/30/20

Seeing orders from the 20th “in process” and possibly the 21st.

06/23/2020

Just got back from a few days out of town with the family! Looking at the distributor updates “RR” SKUS are processing orders from the 16th today. Not bad, looks like an improvement.  Thanks for your patience, especially with the Chase Tactical orders which are our big holdup now.
Regards,

Will

06/20/2020

Seeing orders from the 12th shipping today and hopefully the distributor will make some major progress this weekend as sales have slowed down this past week (probably because everything is out of stock).  We are seeing some items like the closed tine Surefire  Warcomp come back and we are watching the Surefire Wardens like a hawk!  The Surefire Training can sold and now if you want one it will take about 8 days to ship.

Items that need to find homes and ship same/next day:

Pitbull Tactical Single Pistol mag pouches (these are really nice)

Armaspec XPDW Stocks (FDE) we have 2

ADM Titanium Delta Scope Mount in FDE (use the request a quote feature so we can save you some $ but you better create an account and have your billing or shipping set up)

Strike Industries Adjustable Scope Mounts (Super sexy and we have a few) Link Handstop (FDE)  ARCH- L Charging Handle (Blue)

Midwest Industries NVG height Aimpoint Mount (we have a handful of these)

ERGO Angled Fore Grip and QD Sling Socket for MLOK

Vendetta Precision VP-24 hand stop and Single Slot Mlok Adapters

Black Sheep Warrior Fitted Camo Cap and Charcoal Trucker Caps

Orders from the 11th shipping out today. Items listed below ship out ASAP minus the one Surefire Flashhider.  The Surefire Training can still needs a new home.

06/18/20

We are seeing orders from the 10th in process and shipping.  We still have a Surefire Training Can ready for immediate (8 days) shipping as well as a Surefire 3 prong flashhider (sold) that would go well. .  Strike Industries parts as well as Ergo AR parts are shipped from us so they are in stock as well.  We also have a large shipment of parts arriving this afternoon that will include some pistol mag pouches from Pitbull Tactical, Armaspec XPDW Stocks in FDE (only 2) and a 30mm ADM titanium delta Scope Mount in FDE. They should arrive tonight and will ship out fast!

06/15/20

Tonight we will see tracking numbers up to the 8th.  Tracking numbers go out in the mornings. See below for items that ship with no delays! Dual MLOK adapters from Vendetta are backordered two weeks or so.

Orders from the 6th (6-7 days delay on RR SKUS) are shipping today or at least are in processes.  Dual mlok adapters from Vendetta Precision are backordered two weeks waiting for anodizing (single slots are in stock).  We still have lots of VP-24 Handstops as well as the new strike handstop as well.  Here are some items that ship out immediately from our shop with no covid delay:

06/12/20

First I want to say that I have no idea how Mike answers all your chat requests! 🤬 Every time I try to use it (i’m covering for him this week)  I have nothing but problems and it takes me ten minutes to be able to respond. I want to throw my phone across the room.  😡

In other news, the distributor is shipping from the 3rd and 4th today 😘. and it’s Friday so everyone is getting emojis from me.  Have a good one.
Will

06/11/20

We are seeing orders from the the 2nd shipping and orders from the 3rd in process. Basically the distributor is 7 days behind at this point.  Our list of outstanding orders has shrunk considerably and today we are focusing on calling customers that have issues with their orders and canceling refunding and other housekeeping.  I (Will) am on leave from my law enforcement day job seeing family is in town so I can answer up the phone etc if you have any issues.  Thanks for all the support and continued sales. We are here for you and doing our best to provide top notch customer service! Please remember to leave reviews on the product page if you are happy so other folks know that we can be counted on!

06/10/20

Orders from the 2nd are shipping out today. All Surefire Warden orders are complete and we are awaiting more to hit the distributor so we can start the crazy cycle again.  Still have GLOCK 44 mags, barrels available for immediate shipping and we have had good luck with Chase tactical Joey pouches as well.

06//09/20

Holy Cow it’s the 9th of June already! I still haven’t gone camping yet! Probably because my eyes are twitching looking at all these orders waiting to ship! Speaking of which, the distributor is shipping from the 1st today. Half of our wardens arrived and the fedex tracking says today is the day!!!! Glock 44 threaded barrel orders shipped and we have extras that ship out ASAP!
we should have about 5 black Surefire Wardens that will be freed up as well and when the waitlist email goes out it’s going to be for stock on hand.

06/08/20

The shipping numbers from this weekend have not been updated at the distributor yet so there will probably be another update later today.  Weekends usually see good progress.  We are expecting your Glock 44 threaded barrels and black Surefire Wardens in today and I am taking leave from my day job for family reasons so I’ll ship them out ASAP.  Seeing I am on leave, I’ll also be able to answer the phone during the day so feel free to shoot us a call.  Mike T usually handles the chat responses during the week but he is at a Rockwell Tactical training class this week so I’ll cover when I can.  I will also be reviewing the Chase Tactical orders and contacting everyone individually to let them know the status of their order.  There are a lot of Chase products that ar backordered and keeping up with notifications etc has been challenging.  thanks for your patience! Oh…. we have a SIG ROMEO5 XDR Green dot/Predator Optic available to ship immediately here is the product page and here is a Review WMTAC wrote for Black Sheep Warrior last year.

Thanks,

Will

06/06/20

Seeing orders from the 31st processing and we will be shipping black Surefire Wardens and Glock 44 threaded barrels and mags on Monday (if it arrives today then you will see tracking numbers by tonight) Due to weather disruptions on the east coast where Mike T is located please send all questions to our phone line this weekend and I’ll answer up (we respond as soon s we can to all customer emails chats and calls). Be sure to leave a message as I don’t call back missed calls without a message. 1-800-841-2959. During the week please use the chat as mike can answer that during business hours.

06/05/20

Be on the lookout for lots of tracking numbers to go out in the next 12 hours (check spam and add orders@mtg and admin@mtg emails to your contacts).  then again Tuesday morning.  Currently the distributor is shipping orders from the 29th and we were told that there is a plan in place to accomplish a ton of orders this weekend.  FDE Surefire Wardens will ship by Sunday and black most likely Monday.  Remember, if you bought a SOCOM kit that it will ship separately as the distributor ships the muzzle devices for us.

06/04/20

Looks like last night a bunch of orders shipped out from our distributor bringing them up to the 26th.  Still a few from the 24th marked as shipped but no tracking 🤷.  Some of you will be receiving split orders with muzzle devices and Surefire Wardens shipping separately. FDE Wardens will ship out by the weekend and we may have a few extras due to cancelations so be on the lookout!  We will be shipping Glock 44 barrels soon as well.

UPDATE: There is a small….. chance that all outstanding Surefire Wardens will ship by Saturday including recent orders of the black model  😬

06/03/20

Not much change since yesterday. We do expect all FDE Surefire Wardens to arrive today and they will be shipping out By Saturday.  Expect tracking numbers over the next few days.
06/02/20

😃 yesterday we shipped out tons of Surefire Wardens in both black and FDE. We were able to ship everything through the 20th and at least one order from the 21st.  Our next batch of FDE Wardens should be here Thursday and that will have us caught up with all FDE Warden orders by Friday we hope. The distributor is working on orders from the 21st today and may get into the 22nd 21st – 25th. Our current stock of black Wardens (less than 5 left) is part of our order from the 26th so we should see tracking numbers going our in 8 days or less.

06/01/20

We expect to have the majority of the early (12th-15th) Warden orders shipped by close of business today. Tracking number on the FDE wardens shows arrival by COB and packing materials are the same.  The distributor is showing processing (orders that they ship for us) for the 50/20/20 timeframe and beyond.  Many of you will probably receive your packages before you receive your tracking. For those that haven’t we will receive tracking numbers en batch tonight and forward to you in the am. Surefire Wardens in black are no longer a 2 week wait and we have a few left.  They will ship when that batch arrives at the shop in a week or so. Hope this helps. Please wait to reach out regarding your order until tomorrow am as a large number of orders will process in the following 12 hours or less.

05/30/20

We received an encouraging email from our sales rep outlining the progress being made with shipping times.  Last three day weekend we saw a huge jump in tracking numbers and he felt that the distributor would be making up time this weekend as well. Currently, we believe orders from the 20th will have tracking numbers by Monday night/Tuesday morning.  No guarantees and it may be even better than that.  Today we expect a large shipment of FDE Surefire Wardens which will allow us to finish of a lot of orders from the 12-15th range.  Monday we receive packing materials and its game on!  Thanks for all the support and we are happy to respond to customers interested in specific timeframes for their products but we would ask that you use the chat box and provide enough information that we can follow up.  Both Mike and I work full time with other careers and we do our level best but our day jobs demand first attention and rightly so.  Thanks! Don’t forget to check out the new items we have in from Strike Industries they are in our shop and ship out with normal ship times.

05/29/20

We have been shipping a ton of Surefire Wardens and actually ran out of packing materials.  We are working on sourcing more and have more boxes arriving Monday.  The distributor is processing separately from the 15th and a few customers will get tracking numbers tonight.  Please email order status questions!

Strike Industries products ship same/next day as do Vendetta VP-24 Hand Stops and MTG Tactical M-LOK Panels 

05/28/20

Our first Surefire Warden orders have shipped!  Otherwise, the distributor is working on 05/13 & 14 today. We expect a Surefire Warden shipment in tonight (Black)  and another Saturday (mostly FDE).  We are pretty excited to finally have these going out!

05/27/20

Some surefire warden customers will see tracking numbers in the morning! We are seeing our bulk orders and some individual orders from 05/12/20 shipping today.  This means Surefire Warden orders are finally going to ship!  Expect a new batch of stock to come in and get shipped after that.  Thanks for the patience!

05/26/20

We just heard from our rep that our first order of FDE and Black Wardens are shipping tomorrow or the next day (hopefully).  Currently the distributor is shipping orders from the 11th. Of this month. That means those of you who ordered around the 12th -15th should see tracking numbers by the end of the week hopefully. Fingers crossed.  We should be receiving in new shipments every other day after that and they will ship out in the order that you purchased them.  We do have a few cancelations here and there and we are prioritizing that inventory towards existing customers waiting so you may have a shorter wait.

05/23/20

seeing orders placed on April 6th and possibly 7th shipping today.

05/20/20
Seeing orders from April 30th May 1st 4th processing today! Almost appears that they are up to two days progress each day. So extrapolate that out and assume that efficiency will improve as well.

05/18/20

We expect to see tracking numbers go out tonight for orders placed on April 26-27.  If you ordered SIG optics they come to us first so it’s a little longer. 

05/16/20

Still no delays for Elzetta made in the USA flashlights, C&G Holsters,  and MTG/Black Sheep Warrior Gear some Chase Tactical Gear has long wait times due to materials being backordered. Chase armor is staying pretty steady and always takes a few weeks or more.

This morning we started seeing 04/26/20 orders enter “processing” status at our distributor. We anticipate that means a Monday/Tuesday ship date. If you ordered a SIG product then it is shipping to us first so you wont receive a tracking number as soon.

Thanks for all the patience!

05/12/20

From our distributor:

“Right now we are still in a delay but we are making progress. Warehouse is currently shipping from the 21st, 22ndand 23rd of April which puts up around the 17/18 days behind. With the restrictions being lifted, we have been able to ship more and are making some additional changes to help push more out the door to get caught up”.

05/07/20

We continue to see improvements in shipping times! Currently, orders placed on through April 16th are processing/shipping.

04/29/2020

We expect to see a significant increase in shipping confirmation emails today and moving forward.  Prior to today, we were seeing one order completed a day.  It appears that orders processed before 04/07/20 should ship out and receive tracking numbers tonight. Crossing fingers!

Thanks for your patience.

MTG Team

04/21/2020

We are continuing to see shipping delays in orders for products that have part numbers starting in “RR”.  There are no delays for Elzetta made in the USA flashlights, C&G Holsters,  and MTG/Black Sheep Warrior Gear.

04/04/2020

Hello everyone and we sincerely pray that you are staying healthy and surviving these tough times.

Here at MTG Tactical we have been staying healthy and so far the only impact has been to our ship times on some products.

This is what you should know before ordering:

  1. Some of our products are shipped by distributors and manufacturers. These products are seeing different impacts from COVID-19
    1. Items with “RR” preceding the product number (EXAMPLE: RRYHM-HTP-85) are supplied and shipped from a major US tactical distributor and shipped directly to your door.  These products are currently experiencing a 10-15 day shipping delay.  The items are not backordered but due to COVID-19 restrictions on Texas businesses the warehouse is way behind. We do have some RR labeled Tread accessories that are in stock and ready to go as they are on our Montana home business shelves. The TREAD Handstop Kit and the SIG Barricade Stop Kit. 
    2. C & G Quick Ship Holsters are shipping out quickly as usual. Shop C & G Holsters here
    3. MTG 3 Slot MLOK Panels and Vendetta VP-24 hand stops etc are shipping out same/next day
    4. Chase Tactical accessories are shipped from Chase and inventory levels are very low, unfortunately we are not able to predict these so we inform you immediately upon hearing back from Chase Tactical.

Remember, you can always use the chat box (preferred method) to ask about inventory before ordering.

Thanks for your understanding in these difficult times.  Still not as difficult as WWI, WWII and the Holocaust so let’s keep it all in perspective.

The MTG Tactical Team!
