FYI, I have narrowed it down to a few pieces that are POSSIBLY more cnc friendly. If anyone has skills to get it perfect and in the correct format for CNC it could save us some money.

I am still unsure of the magic number of orders we need to get this produced. After we pick the image I will be able to have a better idea.

If you have experience with custom CNC work like this and wish to do the image prep please PM me. It would be based on volunteer work. We are one step closer with this poll.

Note that there WILL be a Cali theme to the images that dont currently have something. Most likely it will say 'Cali' or 'Golden State'. Something to that effect.

I dont see whats the hurry, besides you didnt include a zombie umbrella option outthere that was hella popular. this lower should be representative of the Cal guns forum and its consensus.

The Golden State Bear is nice, but making a bear look like it has opposable thumbs just aint right :confused:

All 5 claws face forward...make it look correct and I would buy one ...very cool.

I think the claw looks pretty good. You gotta think of it as hes swiping, which would turn his "thumb" claw in like that.

I like the bear the best, but the banner makes me think that Golden State is the name of the company. Molan Labe would have been better.

I liked the umbrella corp, zombie one. True its a novelty, but then again I consider most of my weapons to be novelties, as only a few of them are duty weapons. Molon Labe would have been good too..

the bear logo is just one of the many being considered. the others are not part of the poll listed. I stumbled to this tread like the rest of you, I want a custom Calgunner lower as do many here. You imput is Crucial to the end result as it will be representative of our community.

+ 1 All the popular ideas got shut out for some reason. Now all we have left is option 1 and 2 which are what the norcal ppl suggested and its too much like the stickers the bro's/white trash ppl put on there cars. No offence, just looks hideous on a gun

3rd option doesnt look like it would be a very good design to engrave, I mean the acual pic used is crap, and usually the pictures of it are supposed to be more detailed then the acual engraving on aluminum

I agree on the 4th option. It does looks 100% like a NBA team logo now that you mention it hahah. That comment killed it for me :D

Custom lower idea is going downhill fast. Everyone is getting all happy about custom lowers befor we even know pricing, or company who's making them, and noone even likes the designs. Im at the point where I can just take my super low cost JD machine lowers, and have the blank side etched with whatever design I want while I wait at a local shop

I created option 3 and before you rag on it I stated in the first thread that it wasn't finished and needed improving. I made the picture in like 3 minutes at work using MS paint, of course it looks like ****. The whole idea was to get a concept for a final piece to be made.

No worries. I havent been watching who submitted what. I just think things need to get a lil more organized and not jump the gun so fast for voting. Noone is agreeing on the designs in the poll. And the final designs should get made befor votes get cast. Oviously people wont vote for something that was made in 3 mins. And if we vote, and the designs change afterwards, then that means the image changes and people may change there mind on it after it looks different.

And isnt there like 3 threads on this same topic. Starting to get confusing.

Theres already a new poll with new options lol... http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?p=4319912#post4319912

For everyone wanted images that are not on this poll, the reason is because those particular images are trademarked. I have stated this WAY too many times.

I have also stated that the company who is going to be making the lowers will not know how much to charge until he knows how much machining is going to be needed. If one image takes 5 minutes on a cnc machine and another takes 40, then it will cost more.

I can estimate that it MAY cost between 130-170. thats only an estimate. Im not the producer of the part so I can be positive.

Ive been PM'd that the bear option may also be trademarked. I was under the impression that it was an original artwork. So that may not even fly.

I dont think the Umbrella Corporation is even a Registered trade marked since its a fictional company. Even the website is bunk and outdated and leads to nowhere when you click the links..

The phone number listed is disconnected when I call it. I dont think the movie makers from an old movie will ever go after people who use an umbrella shape on there lower. Or even know. Alot of people use that design freely, and MEGA acually makes a lower using a zombie theme using that logo for a group of guys on the USN forum. Noone is making a profit off the logo either, which if your mass producing stuff then making huge profits because you stole there name thats when the active company get butt hurt.

Just sayin'

Im not a resident evil fan so I can care less about that logo...
