If they're still outsourcing for the Armory Coat, I think 4 weeks is a good guess. Better to guess longer and have it be shorter than vice versa. They used to outsource to Accurate Plating and Weaponry down here in Florida, but they told me they no longer do the work for Springfield. I happen to own one of the OD Green Springfield 1911s that APW did for SA, and the finish is thick and almost glossy. I'm not sure who does the work now, but if it isn't Springfield, I'd like to know!
