Is this in bad taste?

I brought my M1A to the gunsmith last Tuesday morning to get a new scope mounted on it.  I asked time frame and he said Thursday or Friday. I was excited about that, I wanted it for the weekend. Thursday I brought in a qd stud so he could throw it on the stock since he would have it apart.... He knew it was likely coming.  

I asked him how it was coming and he said he was going to try and get at it Monday or Tuesday.  I didn't say anything at the time but now I'm thinking.... It's a simple scope mount and qd stud install, how long can that take?  He's now had my rifle for a week and I'm fairly annoyed.  

I know gunsmiths can be quirky with time and such, but I also toyed with the idea of installing the scope myself.  I went with him because he said it would be done by last weekend...

Is it in poor taste to go see him Wednesday morning and pick up my rifle and scope if he hasn't touched it yet?

Depends on your relationship with him. If it was my gunsmith I'd understand and wouldn't worry about it. Shit happens and I know he isn't putting me off just to be a dick. Anyone else I might pick it up and try someone else.
