How long would you wait for gunsmithing work to be done before you start getting frustrated (politely- Mad)? I dropped off a pistol for some fitting work, and finishing back in February (I think, it's been so long I can't remember) to an Anchorage gunsmith. Previously, said smith did a great job, and I was pleased with the results. However, I'm wondering if nearly a year is an acceptable amount of time to keep a pistol (1911). I've called a couple of times, and stopped by in person over the last few months to "just say hi, and see how things are going." I started this about 4 months after dropping it off. The response is "not yet... I'll let you know"
Should I be angry? Is this standard in the industry?
