When I was working full time at the Milpitas shop that was my job. Figuring out how to do the conversions, making the parts that couldn't be bought and custom fabricating mag locks for guns that there were none avaliable.

In my case because the DROS was sent to DOJ (or whoever), Paul has to first cancel it w/DOJ before the DROS can restart at Mad Dog Tactical. He has to figure out how to do that, so it's kind of an unknown on how long it will take at this point. He said he is personally delivering firearms to MadDog by weeks end for customers that have requested going that route, so some of you may be able to restart the DROS this week, unless yours has been sent to DOJ. Looking like it may be a few weeks before this headache sorts itself out for me and at least 3 trips to the South Bay...
For those of you still waiting to get a call, I emailed late 12/3 to the address on their site, to the email@example.com
on 12/4 @ 13:00 and 12/5 @ 10:30. He's working through the list, but I'd be lying if I told you I wasn't worried for a bit.
Best of luck
What you should have done was see if you can rent the barrel from Mad Dog since your DROS was already done at VA. All they would need to do is drop in the barrel, install a blocked mag, and swap the mag catch. It takes all of 2 minutes to do.
I'm glad to hear everyone is getting their money back. It sucks to see what has happened to Valkyrie, I used to proudly wear my shirts and hand out my cards to everyone.
Hasn't been like that for months for me.
There are 3 kinds of people in this world.
The wise, learn from the mistakes of others.
The smart, learn from their own mistakes.
The others, well......they just never learn.
