Once the dust settles in the coming months, and we can get a clear idea on delivery for certain components and raw materials, we will make a run of uppers, and we still want to engage in an upper receiver group buy to help raise more funds for CGF.

We will offer two options:

1) Just the upper receiver with special CGF logo

2) Complete special upper receiver assembly just for this group buy.

We will be waiting a while before we kick off another group buy, especially when certain parts and materials are backordered anywhere from 6 months-12+ months.

In past discussions when we've spoken about these group buys. The consensus is that it's definitly more simplistic/streamlined to offer one product instead of variations which complicates the logistics significantly not to mention the part availibility given the current market.

So I expect it will be one option. Hope that helps.

Sounds like this could be this Summer or even Fall before the next group buy assuming the gun parts supply situation starts to return to normal.

I'll be checking this thread at least once a week in the coming months.

While you're waiting, use the power of your mind to practice dry firing your stripped lower receiver. If one can drink tea from an empty cup, one can certainly dry fire a stripped lower receiver.

Drinking tea from an empty cup -

"Don't think about that home, Anjin-san," Mariko had once said when the dark mists were on him. "Real home is here - the other's ten million times ten million sticks away. Here is reality. You'll send yourself mad if you try to get wa out of such impossibilities. Listen, if you want peace you must learn to drink cha from an empty cup."

She had shown him how. "You think reality into the cup, you think the cha there - the warm, pale-green drink of the gods. If you concentrate hard ... Oh, a Zen teacher could show you, Anjin-san. It is most difficult but so easy. How I wish I was clever enough to show it to you, for then all things in the world can be yours for the asking ... even the most uobtainable gift - perfect tranquility."
