Rick will be sending a sample to ATF on Monday for approval as a non-firearm. He says he expects anywhere from 30-90 days to get approval, but is optimistic that it will be on the low end, based on his recent experience.
Steel would be $300/each and he's not really open to mix/match for this first run. So we need to go either all aluminum or steel.
He estimates about 2 months from the time he is paid, and does not want payment until after ATF approval is received.
He said he's looking forward to this project!
