WHEN:
UPDATE: From Addax's post 419 HERE.
The lowers are ESTIMATED to be completed by the end of January February 2013. After completion the lowers, we will notify members that the lowers will either be shipped out to their FFL or if you are picking up at Addax Tactical, that you can start your DROS.
This is our best guess estimate based on current market and industry conditions. For example, we are estimating 3 weeks for the hard anodizing process, but if it takes our anodizing shop 5 weeks, then this just added two weeks to the original ETA.
You will be notified at the email that you provided when the lowers are ready for pickup or when they have been shipped. (see below for shipping/pickup details)

IMPORTANT: Please do not bombard Addax Tactical via email/phone to ask for individual order status information. As a custom group buy, this does take time to anodize and engrave (engraving must be done one at a time). We will be sure to keep everyone posted on the forum thread.


PRICE:
The price for each lower will be $105 (Plus Tax, DROS and Shipping if shipping lower(s) to your ffl), which includes the $10 donation that will be made directly to the Calguns Foundation upon completion of this group buy.


TAX:
The sales tax will be 8.75%. This tax rate will be applied to all orders.


DROS:
Every lower purchased must go through the DROS process. The CA state DROS fee of $25 will be collected in person at the FFL you select. Lowers must also go through the state's 10 day wait process.
If picking up at Addax, store policy is 5 firearms per DROS, so if purchasing 6+ lowers, then you will need two DROS forms.


PERSONALIZED ENGRAVING:
Personalized custom engraving on the lower receiver (other side of mag well where there is open space for custom / personalized logo’s) is available from Addax and will be discounted for participants of this group buy. Custom engraving is going to be done seperately than this group buy. You will need to follow the group buy ordering details in this post. Then in a few weeks you will need to discuss your request and details with the Addax engraving service for pricing.


PAYMENT:
Do NOT send payment till you have received your confirmation PM response with your total. Money order or cashier's check ONLY.
Cash accepted in person at Addax's retail location only.
Payment must be received IN FULL by Addax by the deadline date at the following address:
Addax Tactical
1431 Truman Street
Unit E
San Fernando, CA 91340


SHIPPING/PICKUP:
You may pick up your order when ready at Addax or you may ship to the FFL of your choice. FFLs offering discounts included in the FAQs of this thread.
The FFL must be a current 01 (Retail Dealer FFL License) or 07 FFL (Manufacturer / Dealer FFL License).


SHIPPING CHARGES:
Flat Rate Shipping to member's FFL
1 lower receiver: $8.00 without insurance. With Insurance is $15.00.
2-3 lower receivers: $16.00 without insurance. With Insurance is $30.00
4-6 lower receivers: $35.00 without insurance. With Insurance is $55.00
7+ lower receivers: TBD.
Out of state deliveries: TBD.
Insurance will cover damage, theft, loss, during shipping. It will not cover damage, theft or loss after the lower receiver / package is signed for and received. If the receiving FFL dealer notices serious damage to the box from shipping, it is up to them to have the delivery person note this, and the dealer should inspect the items of the box with the driver present.

Anyone have a SoCal FFL to recommend? I might just make the drive out to Addax twice from Fullerton but a more local option would be nice as well.

I think there was a Black Rifle friendly FFL in the La Habra / Fullerton area, but I cannot remember their name.

We can ship to your FFL, but you will have to pay for shipping, and transfer fees at your FFL, so it might make more $$ sense to come out to our shop, but that would be your call.

Thank you.

Will you provide a discount for transfer fees for this Group Buy? It looks like most of the participating transfer FFL's are doing this.

Can you please PM Kaligaran with your info. and transfer fees for this Group Buy.

We appreciate your help.

IronWorksTactical 10-09-2012 1:53 PM

Discount? Lol I don't believe in price hiking. I only charge DROS + $10. Will that work?

I'm a very small starting out Internet store who can do the FFL transfers out of my house by appt.

kaligaran 10-09-2012 1:54 PM

Wow, I'm getting hammered with PMs. I'm going to be going through them all after work either daily or every other day.

I'll be adding the orders for Addax in the order they are received. You will hear back within 3 business days from me with the total.

Please make sure your information is COMPLETE for your order.

Thank you everyone! This is going to be a sizable donation to CGF with the speed at which this is already taking off!!!

Most FFL's charge more for transfer fees, since most (like us) have actual retail store locations which cost more to operate vs. working from home.

Your DROS + $10 transfer fee is fantastic. Thank you for helping out.

IronWorksTactical 10-09-2012 2:00 PM

Sure thing. I totally get it when you have the brick and mortar. Fortunately I don't and this is a great way to get my name out there as well. Thanks for letting me be part of this. PM me where you need me to send in my FFL and such please.

No problem.

Any FFL dealer willing to help out fellow Calgunners is good in our book.

Please PM Kaligaran your contact info. etc.

If any members note you as the transfer FFL, we will contact you prior to shipping to get a copy of your current FFL.

To the Group Buy Members:

If there are any members in the Corona area that want to take up IronWorks Tactical's transfer offer, I would recommend you do so! (Dros + $10.00)

I was in the original count but I'm a group buy noob.

Sent a PM to IronWorksTactical as I don't really know any FFLs in the Torrance area and there don't seem to be any in the L.A. area so I'm glad to see IronWorksTactical stepped up!

I didn't see it... when do we actual make payment? At the time paperwork begins?

Mike

ETA: Ah, my bad... found it. Thanks kaligaran and Addax.

Thanks for the props! He will definitely learn about the freedoms of this country regardless of what the political climate may be at the time. And he's going to learn to shoot as soon as he can shoulder a .22 rifle... ;)
