Default Custom Stripped AR-15 Lowers for sale to dealers

OK here's the skinny. I will produce a lower for anyone with whatever on it but the price for one will be quite a bit higher than average. I will charge the set up time for one lower the same as 100 lowers. The best way for you to get a price is to send me an email to info@centermasstactical.net and tell me specifically what you want done. Model #, caliber markings, serial designation, and most importantly you need to send me a picture of what you want engraved on the lower. It doesn't have to be exact but at least close. The pirate, skull, all sound ok

Robert info@centermasstactical.net


Look at www.centermasstactical.net for photo's

Is there any copyright issue that would prevent you from doing the "pirate" lowers, with the "parley/arr/plunder" markings for safe/semi/auto? Of course, the "plunder" marking would be strictly decorative... I've seen pics of such lowers and have wanted one for some time. If you can do it, I'm sure we can work out enough interested folks...

Do you have a website set up so we can see your offering? How about a single custom job?

Just to show you that we're serious, I'm in for at least one of the Pirate lowers. Anyone else? What's the mininum number of lowers you need to have to move forward on this? Price would help, too.

I would love something that will be unique. Price would be an important factor.

Good luck. I don't think Robert is the greatest e-mailer. I would highly recommend calling him instead.

I did talk to him today about his Calguns marketing. I told him it would be helpful to post pictures and prices. I told him he might get a lot of 1 lower orders for custom work and he didn't sound too thrilled. He would rather have an order of 25 or more.

I am just passing along the info, you should still try to get an answer from him on what he wants to do.

I will most certainly post pictures and a review when I get my lowers in.

Ok, so this is the part where we try and put together a purchase for 25 pirate lowers. How much would we be looking at apiece, for 25 of 'em?

+1 for .22lr and for pirate. Pirate logo on the .22 is fine as well.

Edit: If pink, pirate, Hello Kitty were available I wouldn't be able to pass that up either.

Personally...

I'm pretty Serious for a ".22 Marked Lower". I really want a .22 AR type rifle with Evil features and a detachable mag. My plan is for a dedicated upper and a marked lower so that I don't have to worry much.
I could care less if it was a Pirate, Hello Kitty, Black, or Pink... LOL

How about an unmarked lower ?

Is there any law that states a Receiver must be marked with the caliber ?

the barrel would be marked and that should be good enough

I just sent him an email and will post with his permission if he responds.

Quote:
Hello Robert,


I am from the Calguns forum and am responding to a thread you created about Custom Lowers. Many of the guys have posted in the thread, but it is not apparent if anyone has contacted you directly. If possible, can you please provide me with ballpark pricing for:

1. 25 x Stripped Lowers (Pirate Character w/ Parley, Plunder, etc... selector markings)

2. Est. Pricing for a custom color

3. Est. Pricing for a custom caliber marking (.22, 6.8, etc...)

With your permission could I please share the pricing with the guys on the forum for purposes of setting up a "Group Buy"?

He replied back to me with the following details:

1. He prefers orders of 50, but... may be able to work us a deal on 25.

2. He can anodize 3 colors (Black, Tan, Green) but he can only anodize 1 color per batch so we will have to make our mind up on 1 color.

3. Respectful non-ignorant engraving only and the price will be determined on size and complexity. (Text w/Graphics, Text w/o Graphics)

4. Custom Serials and Company Name at no additional cost. (I'll have to speak with him directly as to what this means. i.e. Same batch or individual lowers.)

So, if ya'll are serious we can decide on a configuration, get a list going, and then work out the funding/deposit. For me, I'd really like to have a .22 caliber marking and will go with the flow on whatever character or selector marking you guys want. As for Color... Maybe we can just go with Black and whomever wants Pink will have to Duracoat theirs.

Black is fine for me, I've also sent out a few emails to companies that might be able to supply pink duracoating and/or pink furniture. I'll keep you guys updated
