I have just placed an order with HLJ for 4 items listed as " In Stock "
When completing the purchase 3 of 4 are shown as back ordered .
Thinking I misread the status I canceled and started over - again all 4 items were listed as " in sock" so I pulled the trigger and the same thing - 3of 4 back ordered.
I went through with it anyway - I don't mind waiting but this is the first time I have encountered this at HLJ . I find it disturbing as it smacks of LuckyModel shinanigans . Any one care to weigh in on this ?

Confused - Richard

Have you contacted them? They might be having an issue with their ordering page and not know about it...

I have ordered plenty of times before and they are pretty good. My guess would be you havw probably ordered the last items they have in stock of those items. It happens from time to time and i have had no problems. Regards jason

I have received a response from HJL -

" In Stock means item usually available in 3-5 days - that is the amount of time it takes to reach us from our main warehouse -we expect to have them for you soon"

Yet one item did not require this - strange !
