didn't it come up a few months ago after ares was paid and someone wanted a refund? They can't refund what they no longer have. We paid the leaders, they paid ares, ares paid the cnc shop, the cnc shop paid a metal warehouse.

No need to worry.

Quote from website;
"We should be completely caught up with ALL pre-ordered Rudius Frames by the begining of next month."

I'm sure they will be shipping any day now.

Like November 20 at 3:24pm

Ares Armor Hoping to be completely caught up by the end of next week. we are working through thanksgiving to accomplish this. Does thanksgiving have a grinch???? haha
November 20 at 6:15pm


ares is working hard. Hopefully we can get a confirmed update soon since we were the first to place an order, our order should be done somewhere.. But then again alot of calgunners were bad mouthing them for their news interview so i'm pretty sure we're all on their **** list and we're getting our order last.

Yet that was last week and not one person has posted anywhere that they were first to receive their product.

Their original posting when they "found" out on the 15th was that most of their product was bad an had to be destroyed, that they were shipping some out but not nearly enough to cover all of the preorders. That would imply that at least some individual who preordered should have received by now. But that was almost 2 weeks ago and I have yet to see anywhere on the net of anyone saying they received yet......

The silence is deafening and the fish starts to smell after a while.

Are you in on the GB, If so then the preorders that WE ordered are to be picked up by Banana or GLBTRTR and shipped to us. I agree with savs2k that we are most likely last priority on Ares mind due to all the crap talk, and I don't blame them. If you are in this particular group buy then you should wait out for Banana to or Glbtrtr to confirm they have gotten the frames. We will get them when we get them, or we will get our money back if there is no product like you are trying to insinuate.

regardless of statements made by CalGunners regarding the recent news piece, it would be poor business practice, not to mention dishonest and unethical, for Ares to do anything other than what they promised at the outset of this GB, which was to deliver frames to the members who pre-ordered here first (via the GB organizers, of course).
likewise, since we are past the original planned delivery date, the GB managers should be keeping us updated frequently (weekly, at the very least), even if the update is "still waiting". communication is important.

I agree, but as we have seen throughtout this GB, communication is not very consistent. Im sure that we will eventually get a solid status update from the GB organizers.

Hello I am in GB2, Tuma, you said the letter is in your shop and won't be distributed. I personally think you should give a copy to each group buy to have a copy sent to each buyer, to cover the buyers butt's. Or at least post a slightly redacted copy on line.
That would make many people feel much more at ease.

"casting"...

So are they being made to the Ares letter or to the letter previously mentioned spec?

Not sure if everyone saw this in the Gunsmithing forums. Post 52.

Minimal sanding may be needed for magazine well.
