I hope this is the right place to post this, if not please let me know.
I'm an EOTech distributor and wanted to see if there would be an interest in a group buy. If I can get enough people together I will make a price list and email it to the interested buyers, but only after I get enough people together for the GB. I don't want to disappoint anyone buy giving a price quote now just to end up not doing it due to lack of interest. Here are the requirements:
1. pre-order (payment in advance)
2. delivery is about 4 to 8 weeks (depending on availability from EOTech)
Any questions or comments please let me know. Please only post if you are serious and really want to get one. Thanks!

Eric

UPDATE: We have quite a few people now so please email me at eric@mdtactical.com for list, payment and order instructions. Thanks!

UPDATE: Do not PM me, I can not send you the list that way. See above update.
Also, the cut off date to place the order is next Thursday March 11, 2010.
Payment is due on March 19, 2010. Please follow simple instructions on list. Thanks.

UPDATE 3/7/2010: Some have asked a few question on how to order and how to pay. When you receive the list there are instructions, but some have received a version that was not quite clear and I have updated it.
When placing an order you need to give me your full contact information (full name, shipping address, contact number) Not just email me with what model you want only.
All orders need to be placed by Thursday March 11, 2010
All payments are due by Friday March 19, 2010. If you plan on not paying then don't order or expect negative posts with your name on it.
Payment is to be made by US Postal Money Order or Cash Only. No credit cards, personal check or bank checks.
The reason for no credit cards is that if I take credit cards I must charge you full sales tax and the price of the optics will go up due to credit card transaction fees (unless you really don't mind paying more). No checks/bank checks is because we have been burned before and don't want to repeat that.
Shipping for any 1 (one) optic is $15.00 sent USPS Priority mail insured. If you are in or close to Azusa I can meet up to deliver.
Delivery of optic is from 4 to 10 weeks depending on availability (it may be longer or sooner)
Payment can be mail to me or I can meet up. Address is on the list.
I wanted to give back to the CalGuns community in some way so I started this GB. If anyone has any questions at all please email me and I will answer. Thanks!

I am going to have to back out. I am sorry, but while you are probably 100% on the up and up, there are just too many things that don't work for me with this deal. I can understand keeping the prices for the group buy offline. But between the quick deadline of Thursday to get the money to you, and the fact that you only want cash or money orders, I am hesitant to go through with something like this. I appreciate that you are doing this for us. I really do. And if all goes well with this one, I'll be the first in line next time around. But I have been burned too many times in the internet to risk several hundred dollars just to save a bit of money. Please don't take this personally. But the details on this raise too many red flags for me.

-Mb (the paranoid)

The reason for the off line prices is that I'm an authorized dealer and can not post or advertise any discount under contract or I loose my dealership account.
The quick deadline is because in order to get the price break I must place my order by the end of the week.
Payment wise; I'm trying to avoid the high sales tax and credit card fees. I did post an update explaining this, but if anyone wants to pay by credit card you can. I would just end up having to increase the price of the optics to cover those fees.
I have been in business for over 20 years and been a dealer for EOTech for almost 10 and have never burned anyone. However I can not say the same for several past customers of ours that have screwed us over with bad credit cards. I do understand your concerns because I do not post here much. Our main business is in custom knives so I post more on Custom Knives and Guns forum, Usual Suspect Network, TPI and many other knife forums. If anyone likes please see my website that I update all the time www.mdtactical.com

Like I said, I am not trying to say that you are doing anything wrong here. It is just that I don't know you. And without using a credit card, I have absolutely no safety net should things go wrong, for whatever reason. I am really not trying to be an ***** here. But I also can't risk a good chunk of my annual toy budget on an unknown quantity. As I said in the last post, if this one goes well, I'll be first in line next time around.

No problem at all I hope my post did not sound bad. I was just responding to you and also answering the question for in case anyone else had the same questions or concerns. This way I can answer all the same questions at once instead of answering 60 plus emails. Two birds with one stone, but it may have read a bit stern and it was not meant to be. In any case if I end up with extra optics I will post them up. Thanks :)

I also wanted to say that I will not take any payments until Friday. That way I know we have enough people together for the GB, but orders still need to be in by Thursday March 11, 2010. This is for in case out of the 80 plus emails I have replied to so far we only get 2 or 3 people together. At that point I may still honor the GB price to those who did order or just cancel the GB. I would think that with that many emails we will have quite a few people ordering. Thanks,

Eric

So many models to choose from, any suggestions ?

Range use, probably 200 yards max, 16" BMC upper.

Thanks.

After considering many different setups, I went with the 517. I would have gotten one of the newer small ones but didn't want to spend the extra money

Pros:
-It uses AA batteries
-The buttons are located on the side rather than the rear
-It has a built in riser to allow for lower 1/3 co-witness
-Its cheaper than the higher end models, but still has all the features I want/need.

Cons:
-A lot bigger than the new, smaller models(I think they're called xps?)
-iirc its not night vision compatible(I don't care about this)
-not as many features as newer models(for example, some more expensive models have different reticles you can choose from)

eric_mdtactical
03-11-2010, 4:13 PM
You may also want to think about a magnifier as well. I use an XPS with a 3X magnifier and the combo works gerat at 200 yards on my Wilson Combat 16".

03-11-2010, 8:21 PM
