ALCON,

This is a group buy for the purchase of the newest SOPMOD, GEN 2, Stock by B5 Systems. They have been awarded the new contract to offer this stock, that is to Above MILSPEC standards.

The SOPMOD stock was originally developed by NSWC-Crane for use with SOCOMís SOPMOD (Special Operations Peculiar Modification) M4A1 carbines. B5 systems, a well known defense and aerospace contractor, was selected in 2009 to supply the US Army with SOPMOD stocks. These quality stocks are now available on the commercial market. Featuring sloped sides for a superior cheek weld, watertight battery storage compartments, and a tight fit on mil-spec carbine receiver extension tubes.

Features
Improved cheek weld for better shooting position.
Watertight battery storage compartments.
Padded buttplate reduces felt recoil and provides no-slip surface against web-gear and body armor.
Dual quick-detach sling swivel holes.
Made in the USA.

The first run that many people speak of and has been posted around the internet states they are $13 a stock. This original order was for the first run that where out of spec. 75% of these where destroyed and the other 25% where sent to DRMO and eventually sold to civilian customers at a discounted rate due to the problems with the first run. The current Contract price for a SOPMOD stock is much more than the original order for above MILSPEC SOPMOD Stocks.

These Stocks for this group buy are the Above MILSPEC, proper fitting SOPMOD stocks made by B5 Systems that MSRP for $120. This MSRP is still below the LMT Price(which I asume will be coming down very soon).


This group buy will be for $85 per B5 Systems SOPMOD, GEN 2, stock for local pick up in San Diego and $95 Shipped to your location.
The Group buy has to be made with a max of 30 stocks. Color Currently Available is Black. If CGNers want FDE I will need to order 30 just in FDE and there will be a 4-6 week delivery time

Payment: Can be made to me via Cash-FTF, USPS money order(PM for Details) or via Credit Card with an addition 4% charge. If I do not recieve enough orders price will adjust accordinly or a refund will be returned minus any fees do to Credit Card use.

Ok Guys, list is updated.

If u could please respond with FTF transaction or if u want it shipped. I want to track this from the start to make my life easier.

This is a great price for these stocks and it is the lowest you are going to find. Even if u purchase from 1 of the two dealers who sell these for $95, their shipping is $13-42$ for one.

Also. Gonna limit this group buy to a max of 50 black and 30 FDE(if we get enough orders).

Unfortunately OD is not available at this time unless you or we order 500 of them with a lead time of 6-8 weeks.

I would suggest u get a black. If u do want it to be OD you and I could work out a deal and I can DuraCoat it the correct OD to match your furniture.

Just a thought. Let m know if u want the black.

Actually, make it 2 Black, 1 FDE if it becomes a reality. Also, I think you should put a bit more description in the title to get noobs interested who are looking for a new stock, but aren't looking specifically for an SOPMOD.

Ok Calgunners!!!

Everyone looked interested on one of the other posts talking about this B5 SOPMOD. What ha happens to everyone who said they wanted a group buy? Only 5 people have rogered up? If we can't get 40 the price is out the window.

Let's go guys and gals. This is the exact same stock a the LMT. LMT lost the contract and it is now being made by B5 according tot he same specs as the LMT.

OK all,

I have updated the list. Sorry it has taken me so long to update. Work was hectic this weekend and I actually was able to talk the wife into letting me and the Expertish getting some range time this weekend.

I am back on it and will reply to PM's as needed. Please be sure to post up your replies on this thread as it is easier to track than PM's sometime.

All PM'S Should be replied to, If I have missed you please let me know. Thanks

Update: ok all. Some folks have wanted to pay now. I want to hold off on receiving payment until we get closer to the minimum order. This will prevent me from having do do refunds or asking for more money from those who have ordered but the price went up due to not having the min orders.

Hope you all understand

If we get end orders the plan is to order on the 16th of April. I have been told to expect the stocks 10-14 days after.

If we don't accept the ammount of orders we need it might be extended or. Canceled depending on what te majority of partiipants decide.

Well for military folks we do only get paid on the 1st and 15th. Thing is April 15th is on a Sunday this year so every military person will be paid on or by the 13th.

Since TheExpertish brought it up, If there r money issues please pm me to work out the details.

If this GB is not met the participants will make the decision to add $10 to the price of the butstock and order as planned or to extend the GB for more participants

List Updated.

Looks like the FDE is out the window. We only have 6 orders and we need 30. As of this point I am going to close the FDE buy. I know a few people said they would want black if the FDE did not go thru. If this is the case please reply on this thread so I can add to your order of the black.

Start plan on sending in your payments this week. Again, I will accept USPS Money Order or CC. If paying with credit card please add a $3 service fee so I don't end up paying for the fee.

Thank you to all

Is the group buy still proceeding even with less than 40 people? for black

Is the group buy still proceeding even with less than 40 people? for black

Yes it is. I was aproached by a vendor who offered the same price even if we don't get 40. The problem is he limo tired it to 20 with a possibility of 30 after he checks his stock today.

I need input from everyone a far as fairness goes. If it is limited to 20 would everyone on the lot be willing to accept receiving 1 stock(for those of u who order 2) so everyone Jo wanted to participate receives at least 1.

Input is welcome, final decision will be mine after I find out if we can get 20 or 30 of them.

Dark Sky Solutions
04-09-2012, 8:08 PM
OK, I have maxed this GB out at 30 per my vendor's request.

Get your orders in now. Start PMing me to make arrangements for FTF payment or how to send in your payment.

Verify your name on the list for the amount of stocks wanted. If no payment/replies by people by Friday the 13th I will consider their order canceled.

I should be getting the stocks in my hands prior to the 26th. My vendor is waiting for his shipment to come in and should be to him no later than the 20th. I will be picking them up sometime between the 21st and the 24th. Once they are picked up I will be sending a PM out for pick up info and boxing the rest up to ship out to those who sent a payment in and need the stock shipped to them.
