1 - it was just a couple weeks
2 - Yes, through www.adventuresinairguns.com (thanks, Randy!)
I failed to mention one very nice aspect of receiving my Gargoyle - the great packing job! The stock and action were separated for shipping purposes. The stock was wrapped very nicely in heavy cloth paper and bubble wrap. The action was wrapped in foam and sealed inside a PVC pipe.
I went ahead and got the extra valve that Randy offers and it came with the package in its own bag, with instructions.
The Gargoyle went together with the supplied stock screw very easily with no rubbing/binding/etc. Straight in, seated perfectly.
Feel free to ask more questions!
