Grips for P245/P220compact

In December, I tried to buy a set of Hogue rosewood, checkered grips for my pistol at a local shop. They called their supplier and were told it would be at least a month before the grips were in stock. Canceled on that. Placed an order through Optics Planet during 1st week of January. By the end of the month, they wrote me saying the grips were not in stock and it would be at least a month before they were expected. So I waited a month and called them only to hear that they still weren't in stock and OP didn't know when to expect them.

Two days ago, I ordered directly from Hogue. Guess what I got in email today? That's right! Not in stock, and at least 30 days before more are even expected, let alone available.

What the heck has happened to Hogue? I've bought their stuff for years without any issues. In the last few months, I've been hearing all kinds of "sad" stories about service and communications. Do we have another victim of the economy here, or new management, or what? Sad to see old "friends" go bad on ya.

There was another thread on Hogue's customer service recently...

Sounds like it's a problem. Sorry to hear.

Hogue, like everyone else, is probably making to order rather than carrying an inventory especially if you are ordering a low volume item. I too am waiting and a month seems to be the norm.

Not saying I like it, just that I understand it.

The G-10 grips I just received yesterday were ordered last wednesday. Got an email from Hogue on thursday saying my choice was out of stock and projecting "30 days" to fill. Emailed right back with my second choice which they had and they're on my 229 now. I'm happy.
Hogue is offering what seems to me to be a wide range of grip options (materials, textures, colors, gun models) for the enthusiast. That's a good thing. But that means carrying a large inventory or requiring a lead time to fill. Me? I like having options and don't mind a little wait to get it if need be. JMHO.
