Yes it is, I'm a little surprised C&B would continue to show Desert Fox if it's been out of stock for some time - but their catalogs aren't the best of what they do anyway. If you went to order DF, you would quickly see it is not available and I don't think they would try to fast track you if you asked them about when they were gong to restock.
I ordered BCT Commander - on June 3 they were out of stock on the item. It showed up in this morning's mail, they had shipped June 6. Granted, they didn't notify me, but that's the way they are. They have the item, they ship it and no crapping around - they say "momentarily", they mean it - and ship same day they receive their restock.
Some vendors talk a lot and don't deliver much - C&B is similar to the girl in the John Wayne movie: "She don't talk much ... but she got a CRAZY body." C&B is the only vendor I would implicitly trust with an advance order - not a pre-order, because "pre-order" means I would be ordering it before I ordered it.
I don't know how to do that - I do know how to make a drop ship, or advance order. That I can do. So can C&B - better than anyone really in ANY Internet vending retail specialty I have come across.
Nope, I don't get a penny from C&B - its a case of credit where credit is due.
