First Time Buyer - Lead Time Question 1 year 1 week ago #72169

Hello All,

I just placed my first order and had a question about the lead time in the email confirmation. I order an empty Oracle - Weathered and individual components for a DIY project. My question is does saberforge have to build the Saber since its an empty hilt or do they have those in stock already? Just wonder if the 4-5 week lead time would still apply since there is nothing being installed except the possibility of the hilt.

Thanks

Nobody can weight in on this? Has anyone ever just ordered part without a hilt and did it still take a long time? Are empty apprentice hilts prepare or made when the order comes in.

It still goes into a build queue as far as I know. So yes, lead times are still in play. It may be a little faster, but not by much.

FYI, I order my empties from the Etsy site, much faster shipping. No customization, but I usually have in hand within 5 business days.

If it prepares you at all, even ordering something simple like a pommel and blade plug still takes 2 weeks.

Thanks guys for the feedback. Well I guess it will get here when it does, was just hoping for like a 2 week wait instead of the months.

Thanks again just excited to build my first custom saber.
