Default AR500 Omega Armor Group Buy! Optional RHINO LINING for PROVEN Frag Protection!

The ULTIMATE in fragmentation protection! We are now offering RHINO LINED plates! An INDUSTRY FIRST!! We extensively field tested our plates and our Rhino Lined plates have absorbed impacts from .308 (4 rounds) from 50 yards and Glock 27 .40 (9 rounds) from 10 yards without any frag escaping the carrier! Want to see the video??? Click on the link to order, scroll down, and the video is attached in the product description!!

We are going to open up this group buy for just 30 purchases! As of now, I am limiting the amount of purchases to just 2 sets (of your choosing/configuration) per person.

Here is the other thing.... It is going to take some time to get all the work and the coating done. So, even though you must pay now, I will say this product will ship in likely 6-7 weeks (hopefully sooner though). If you are not getting them coated, I can definitely get them out a little sooner, but don't expect it to be much sooner. We are moving a LOT of armor! I have to make sure I fill all orders....even the ones outside of the GB. What I can promise you is that you will be receiving a QUALITY item that will be well worth the wait...that I can guarantee you! I want the wait time to be clearly understood. I can give you my word I will do everything in my control to get these out as quickly as possible.

OK.... Here is the pricing structure you have been waiting for. This is a pretty significant discount compared to my advertised web prices. Hope you all take advantage. Once they are gone...they're gone!

ALL PRICES INCLUDE FREE SHIPPING!



To ensure I only sell 30 of these at this special pricing, I have actually raised the prices for each package combination by $50. However, I have created a coupon code that can only be used 30 times. To purchase at these prices, you must use coupon code CALGUNS-GB-ARMOR (all CAPS for it to work). After the product is added to your cart, you must go and check out. At the check out, that is when you will find a spot to enter the coupon code. After the coupon code is entered, you will see the $50 removed at the bottom as "order discount"


- (2) FORMED 10"x12" Plates: $104.99
- (1) Flat and (1) FORMED 10"x12" Plate: $89.99

- ADD 6"x6" FLAT SIDE PLATES: $19.99
- ADD 6"x6" FORMED SIDE PLATES: $26.99
- ADD 6"x8" FLAT SIDE PLATES: $29.99
- ADD 6"x8" FORMED SIDE PLATES: $36.99

- ADD RHINO LINER (no side plates): $40.99
- ADD RHINO LINER 6"x6" SIDE PLATES: $54.99
- ADD RHINO LINER 6"x8" SIDE PLATES: $58.99

I have set up 2 different links for ordering. They are all based on your primary front/back plate configuration. So, select one of the links below to choose the options you want to add.


(2) FORMED 10"x12" OMEGA PLATES - CLICK TO ORDER AND CHOOSE OPTIONS

(1) FLAT and (1) FORMED 10"x12" OMEGA PLATES - CLICK TO ORDER AND CHOOSE OPTIONS

Feel free to reply with "IN" or whatever after you purchase. Thanks again for all the support guys! We greatly look forward to making this a huge success!

There must be something wrong with the coupon code. Check it again in a few minutes.

Thanks,

Can you get in the rhino lining but had bought the plates from you before hand?

Here's what I will do for the folks who bought plates before.....which is why I was hesitant to do this group buy. As a very small company (such as mine) grows, we continually come up with new products and innovations. My goal has always been to provide my customers with top-quality products at exceptional pricing...plain and simple. Well, since I have made improvements to our armor, I have had no doubt people would want to return their plates to get coated. I get it...as a consumer, I would want to do the same.

So, here's what I'll do. If you want to send me back the plates to have them Rhino'd, I will be glad to do it for the GB price. All you have to do is pay for shipping back to you. Once the GB is over, my Rhino'd products will go back to the normal price, which I have not yet disclosed.

So, if you bought armor and want to send it back for coating, shoot me a PM.

Thanks for all the orders folks!

Bought two sets.

Though I'm a bit puzzled by the whole, raise the price $50 and then give out $50 coupon. Why not just charge the normal price?

Because this is not going to be the "normal" price. This is the GB price, which is discounted. To ensure I only sell 30 of these at this price, I have created the coupon code that can only be used 30 times. Once the coupon code is used up (getting very close), this special pricing will no longer be available.

Thanks for the orders!!

So we can expect shipment probably early February? Sorry, I have to ask, but I'm leaving the country for several weeks starting late February or early March.

Also, any word on when we might expect carriers?

If you are just going to be painting them, any rattle can should do it. Remember though, with paint you get what you pay for. 1 can should suffice.

We are working hard to get the orders out as quickly as possible. Ever since CT, things have been super crazy. I hope to have all orders shipped out within 2 weeks. The plates going to Rhino will likely go there on Monday or Tuesday.

Thanks!!

At this point it will be ALL the plates. I should have 400 plates (200 sets) going to Rhino Liner on Wednesday. One week after that and we're ready to ship. I'll keep you all posted. All orders should ship NLT January 16/17.

Thanks again guys!!

We have made excellent progress. We have built a custom die to make the bend a "continuous" bend. We used the press these in 4 different locations. The bend radius is still exactly the same, so it will still fit perfectly in the BCS carrier. This is a pretty big advancement in our forming process.

Here is a batch then went to sandblasting the other day. This batch only had about 115. However, I'm happy to report all the plates are going to Rhino on Wednesday of next week. We will be dropping 400 plates (90% formed, 10% flat) and a TON of side plates. Rhino said to give them a week.

Below are progress pictures, and picture of the blasted plate (prepped for Rhino), and a picture of the new and improved "single bend radius).

Thoughts??

We have made excellent progress. We have built a custom die to make the bend a "continuous" bend. We used to press these in 4 different locations. The bend radius is still exactly the same, so it will still fit perfectly in the BCS carrier. This is a pretty big advancement in our forming process.

Here is a batch then went to sandblasting the other day. This batch only had about 115. However, I'm happy to report all the plates are going to Rhino on Wednesday of next week. We will be dropping 400 plates (90% formed, 10% flat) and a TON of side plates. Rhino said to give them a week.

Below are progress pictures, and picture of the blasted plate (prepped for Rhino), and a picture of the new and improved "single bend radius".

Thoughts??

I'm loving the new cleaner bend! I just placed my 3rd order (4th set). How many sets do you have left?

wait wait wait....

So I get a front/back plates Flat or Formed and have the option of Flat/formed side plates 6x6 or 6x8?

I.E. I can get total coverage for $250? instead of a single 10x12 SAPI Plate.
