All PM's responded. Anyone want to give me some advice on how to make this work. Most parts are on backorder so it's not a matter of just ordering and shipping. Should I just order the most requested parts and let everyone know when they get here?

NoFail
03-06-2012, 12:14 PM
For me Ican wait if it's backorder, no hurry I'm still building .308 AR and spent ish loads on it, so whatever I'll wait for item(s) on a good price.

What if things I want aren't the most requested? Does that mean it won't be ordered then? I don't understand question very well.

Typically people organizing group buys will set a cut off date and have people commit to what product(s) they want by that date. That gives you the basis for a list of products/quantities to order, and helps ensure people will get what they want and that you don't end up with product that people aren't interested in buying.

You'll have to decide how you want to handle it financially. It's not unusual to require payment up front for group buys like this, especially for a fairly big ticket item like this. if you want payment up front you'll need to set up the means of doing that, and establish shipping prices and so on. I have seen some group buys where payment isn't made up front though, so that's entirely up to you.

You might take a look at the group buy for ESEE knives (http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=455555&highlight=esee)that Knifecoop is running for an example of how to do this. That situation was somewhat similar in that there was a 6 week or so lead time from the time the order was placed until the products will ship. He actually set two cut off dates, and placed two different orders with ESEE.

If we purchase a combo upper/lower receiver matched pair ( Matched pairs from Mega Arms are supposedly tighter fitting...etc ) , and kicked in another 10 dollars ( 20 dollars shipping ) ...would you be willing to ship the upper receiver ( Monolithic MaTen in my case ) to our address so we can build it and have it ready ?

( Of course the lower ships to the FFL )

So ... What are your latest thoughts about the group buy?

12 weeks is a long time to wait, but it is what it is. From the little I've looked around it appears that retailers don't have a lot of Mega products on their shelves, at least not the products I'm interested in buying.
