Default Milpitas Lowers are BACK BABY!

19-DECEMBER, 2007. MILPITIAS, CA.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.

Nearly 2 years after they were siezed, amidst much controversy, 219 hotly contested firearm components have been returned to their rightful owners.

Thanks to the combined efforts of members of calguns.net, a web forum promoting individual rights, unlawfully taken personal property has been returned to it's rightful and legal owners.

Participants must undergo yet another 10-day waiting period, as these harmless looking chunks of aluminum are still technically 'firearms'.

This is yet another example of what good people can do when we come together openly and honestly. I thank you all for your continued support, and look forward to what 2008 will bring.

All Milpitas Group Buyers are cordially invited to a release party early Jan 2008, date and venue info will be distributed.

Thank you to the following, without your help:
Scatch Maroo
Rob Blank, RMB
Gene Hoffman
Jason Davis, TMLLP
Chuck Michel, TMLLP
NRA
Calguns.net
Paul Kestryll
Ramon
blackrazor
Bill Wiese
Matt Corwin
All the rest who must remain nameless.

EDIT to add:
One small step for Off List Lowers, one giant leap for mankind.

RMB Enterprises. 1000 Jacklin Road. Milpitas, CA 95035.

Congrats! Great news.

All 219 OLL receivers should get a custom laser engraving. They have some 'history' behind them.

Funny, I was just thinking to myself, "I've got one more year to decide what kind of an upper I want".

Ben, do you have any details on RMB's preferred pickup "procedure"?

Thanks again for all your help and going through a ton of BS to get us lowers.

I can't believe my babies are finally coming home.

Some of my friends said it would never happen. Boy are they going to be surprised when I show them my new toys!

Holy CRAP! What a surprise, and great Christmas present!

Good job, Ben, Gene, and everyone else involved. I am impressed. I thought those lowers were long gone.

I guess I have a few lowers to sell now, but I'm going to keep one and engrave it for posterity. Anyone wanna set up a group buy for engraving?

Are these the notorious Superior lowers with the anto markings that were siezed?

No, that is a separate issue.

The vendor helped to make 10% whole again despite Iggcompetence.

per rob- please call and make an appointment OR you can try your luck on an intermittent schedule from 9a-3p

If you have bought or sold an interest in a lower please have Both persons come in, and bring a photocopy of a valid bill of sale.

Tell your friends that when Ben Cannon says something is going to happen, it happens!

Ben, will there be a reference list kept so in the future someone could check that they are in fact buying one of these ‘historic’ lowers?

Great news,,,, Never doubted you guys for a minute.
Now I have to send a letter to the agents who seized them and thank them for keeping my lower safe for me all these many months. I think we should send a, Milpitas Group Buy Photo Holiday card to A.M et all. Just to let them know that we legal firearm owners are harboring no hard feelings towards them.....
BTL




OK maybe not.

I'm going to merge them in to the one in 2A for more exposure.
I suspect some members don't check the Current Legal forum that frequently.

How true. And it was 2 years ago to the month that 10% came to the San Jose gun show and offered the first public sales of OLLs. Nice anniversary presents here.
