They did just have a major sale this weekend.

Might have sold out or might have made sure certain things were not in stock just in case.

After the fourth or sixth week, is the item(s) in stock?

I remember one time, I ordered something from them and they said it would be 3 weeks. I called them after the third week for an update and they told me the item I ordered was discontinued. WTF?!

It really stinks how much MRL suffers from this problem.

Yeah, I didn't realize that they had so much back ordering problems...I've canceled 2 orders in the past 2 months. It's one thing to wait, but another to keep waiting as the expected date is pushed further back, or passes with no word. My last order was expected to arrive in their warehouse in late June, and I ordered in April!

Always have a back up purchase planned or order from an MRL vendor.

Hi, guys !

I'm sorry to hear everyone has had such bad luck with MRL.

I was very disapointed in that "sale" they had on May 6th. When I called them that morning I was informed that the "sale" was only for walk-in customers at the showroom. No discount was offered to call-in or online customers ! Funny, that sale banner they had scrolling across their websit didn't say anything about that. It really felt like the old "Bait and Switch".
I cut my order down from a big splurge to a small order from their closeout selection. Mad

On a more positive note ...

My German Halberd just arrived about an hour ago, and I have to say its a very good value for the $99.00 I paid for it. Happy

Tim - your comment seems so familiar that I had to check the date stamp on your post - I am pretty sure something similar happened to quite a few folks last year or the year before.
