Contacted Nathan @ Tactical Machining, (a very nice guy I might add) about doing a Calguns Group Buy. I'm wondering anyone would be interested in doing a group buy on 80% lowers. Their regular price is like $80 each not including shipping. If we can get together 25 units, we can get a price of about $65 each unit with our Calguns discount NOT including shipping. The next tier in the group buy comes in at 100 units, for another $5 discount. Figure about $70 dollars each shipped to me, you would have to pick it up from me in Los Angeles, Harbor City, or Norwalk/Downey. If you need it shipped, I can USPS it to you for another $5 bucks.

I figure if you just order one from them it would cost you $80 - $5 calguns discount + shipping approximately $12. $87 if you order from them directly, so even if you participate in this group buy, and had it shipped from me to you, you're still ahead of the game!

I want 5 units for myself, are there 20 or 95 (!) other of you guys willing to throw down?

Ar15 pistol here I come!!!!

Time frame:

If there is enough interest, I'd probably get started on this in about 2-3 weeks.

Id be down for atleast 1 maybe 2 or 3.

But I would want the anodized one. I don't want to hassle with getting the anodizing done myself, I hear it is a pain and you need to find an anodizer with a FFL to get it done. If that is an option I am down, if not, thats a bummer, this was a good reason for me to pull the trigger on the 80% lower project.

Jeeez, Roccobro just had this exact group buy a couple months ago. Expect dozens of interested parties. You should easily clear 100 units

Just got off the phone Nathan again, and it seems that this group buy is a bit premature. I called regarding prices on other items that people were interested in was told that, a group buy would not be needed as they are having a sale on lowers right now. They will be going for just about the same price as our group buy, making the group buy...well obsolete. I'll get the details about the sale and be right back.

Agent Tikki

They just posted up new sales prices.

$325 for 5 $65 each
$69 for 1

This group buy is a bust.

Buy your gear asap.

If you are local to me (Lost Angeles) I'm putting an order in, in about a week, PM me and I can add you to my order!

Right now we are running a summer sale on all 80% products. The prices are such that a group buy is not needed, basically group buy pricing with out doing a group buy.

Take a look. (http://calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=440536)

I'd get 2 or 3. Anyone near HB that wants to combine orders for the discount? Or maybe I should just get the 5 pack and jig and sell 2 if I don't want em.

OC build party?

Could be in for combined shipping. I NEED a 308 and an ar pistol and and and..... let me look into how difficult with what tools I have to finish them.

Diabolus

Anyone have the tools/equipment for the build in Norcal?

I think we could get a number of people for a build party in Norcal... hopefully someone steps up, that would be great.

thats what im looking for in Socal. Let me know on a build party.

Tiki, let me know if youre up for it and Id even come down and do the build wherever you get access to a mill

Count me in on a So Cal build party. I'll be buying one.

If we get enough people to come to the build party we can all split the cost of the jig. Whomever hosts the party can keep the jig for the use of the their machine. Thoughts?

Would there be any price breaks on the jigs? If so, I may be in for a couple.

Johnfmx5

Those in NorCal, I used a friend's backyard mill and I have the jigs for the AR15.

We can't exactly have a build party, since it took us about 2 hours to setup and mill each lower.

Yes there is.
