Eh? Were you ordering MG kits or conversion kits/accessories for MG kits?

It depends - usually I get SAL shipments in 2 weeks, but during the holiday
seasons it can take over a month to arrive. Sometimes SAL is not very
reliable and Rainbow 10 will inform you if they hear a lot of customers
who complained about SAL's recent performance, but all my orders have
arrived safely by SAL.

Well, I think both SAL and Air do not include insurance. If you want to
insure your order, EMS is the only way to go. I've always gone with SAL
unless EMS turns out to be cheaper (usually the case with a huge order)
and they've never lost or damaged my order. Unless a week or less makes
a big difference for you, I think SAL does the job fine.
