Honestly haven’t heard, but whatever it is, it’s worth the wait. Had one previously in 6.5 Creedmoor that I traded for an AI AT, and missed it so much I had to search long and hard for another. Won’t make that mistake again. Best gas gun I own currently.

I need the encouragement to keep waiting at this point myself. I’m starting to get a bit aggravated.

I ordered an sp10 and a havak both in 6.5 on feb 13th. I was quoted 1-3 months on sp10 and 1-4 months on havak.

Once it got to 3 months I started calling every other week for an update. Always same story, “waiting for stocks on sp10, you’re near top of list but we don’t know when either rifle will be built”

Fast forward to last week, talk to seekins on 6/19 to hear same as usual, “we have sp10 stocks now but we don’t know when your sp10 or havak will be on the build list”

Then on 6/21 I get an email that my havak has shipped.

So basically customer service is just placating me with the answers and not actually checking for info with the rifle builders. Had they actually checked on 6/19 surely my havak was either in assembly or at the very least was slated for build the next day for it to be shipped by 6/21.

Aggravating to say the least , but I can keep up hope every time someone says how good the sp10 is. At least I’ll have a havak to play with now to pass the time. Lol

I couldn’t help myself and I got antsy. I called Seekins to see when the rifle may be ready. I got the standard response. He did say the new Pro Comp stocks were in stock and they got a lot of orders for the Havoc. Has anyone gotten a 6.5CM SP-10 they ordered?

I just got a shipping notification email for my SP10 that I ordered February 10. That puts it right about 5 months.

Omg!!! Deer season opens here in October and I was hoping to sight it in and find some hunting ammo before it started. I guess I’ll just plan on shooting my bolt rifle this year. 😢😤

8-12 weeks...5 months...

It was one year start to finish when I ordered my GAP-10 during the gun rush 5 years ago. Worth it, but these wait times are pretty awesome comparatively.

Jealous rant is over now.

If you don't want the wait and you have a Cabelas nearby I see they are stocking SP10 rifles right now in 6.5 at $2600, play the 20% gift card game and that can get pretty cheap, though it would take awhile to get $2600 worth of them.

Ordered mine directly from Seekins 2 weeks ago. No projected delivery time but a nice "thank you" email from Seekins a couple days later. From what I've researched, it'll be worth the wait....

Just received shipping notification for my sp10 this afternoon. By the time it arrives I’ll have waited almost a full 6 months. Hopefully this thing lives up to the hype......

For what it's worth, this rifle is in stock at cabela's. I bought mine off the shelf in store, but they can also ship it to your store. I don't like how mine shoots. Also Seekins sells the large frame upper/lower receiver set with handguard included on their web site. Throw in a barrel, trigger, furniture, and bcg and you have your own custom sp10/gap-10. In theory, the upper/lower you can buy off seekin's website is what GAP uses.

Will do. Hopefully my aadmount comes in soon as well. If it does I’ll be taking it out next weekend. It’s going to have an athlon Cronus btr.

The version that cabelas is stocking is prior to their new buttstock, bcg, and switch from cmc to Timney. As for the builders kit, I don’t remember the last time it was in stock on seekins web site. I think the wait for a rifle may make it quite a while before they sell just the receivers and hand guard combo.

Also in my case I ordered mine using a 40% off cert from seekins so it was wayyyy below the cabelas price. The discount definitely made the wait easier to stomach.

Hard to argue with 40% coupon, same as I.

What do you dislike about the way it shoots?

I thought the SP 10 was kinda known for shooting tiny groups. I wouldn't be happy either. Might need to get that checked out.

That's one thing I've wondered about now that guns like the SP-10 and some of the GAP guns are being stocked by big stores like Cabelas and are much easier to obtain with basically no wait is if they are built with the same attention to detail as if you custom order one.

Being in manufacturing. I would imagine the same level of care goes into each. These guys are putting together guns day in and day out.
