I'm on the fence here, help me out. I get the 80% thing. Ok, so this may be a dumb question or I'm missing something, but what is it going to cost approximately to buy the remaining needed parts? Whats the advantage as opposed to a complete gun with a warranty? To me it seems you will need at least $400 in parts to finish it, not counting the jig. Pardon my ignorance.

It'll cost you at least $400 and probably more to do a minimum build and I would imagine most people will be spending more. You never save money doing an 80% build but it's something YOU built. Some people like the 80% builds because it's a gun that's "off the books" so to speak. Then again some people do 80%'s and then do a voluntary registration. So what's the advantage? I think it varies with each person. Personally I like the challenge of building something and making it work. I'm no machinist but doing an 80% I get to play around at being one.

I agree with psssniper, sactoman. Having something i built myself and knowing its mine not to be taken away if it ever came to that. At the least this will cost about 600. Its really something you have to want to do.

If the cost stays at $125 I'd like to add 4 more frames for a total of 6 before the GB ends. Thanks

On pins and needles waiting to hear back about this possible price change....
I have a feeling we are going to have quite a few ppl drop out of this buy if it changes.

Ares has not responded to me yet, by phone or pm. Im waiting anxiously as well.

Desert cowboy, receivee your pm. Ill mark it down

As a note, because of my computer situation i have been keeping note of everything the ole' fashion way and am very happy to announce we have broken 100 on the frames, and as soon as ares gets back to me i will begin searching for potential slide/ parts group buys.

Question: my wife is worried, should i use my home address for this? Would it be a good idea to post my mailing address in the original post?

If this takes a few weeks to pan out, I may bump up to three, but only at the "old" price of 125 each. At the 175 each price, I would need to think about it.

Here's a quick question. They say on the website that there are only 2 holes to drill, the rails and barrel seat to cut. However looking at the photos provided above of the "final prototype" (why with only 2 weeks away they are not showing photos of completed product but still prototypes, has production not started yet??)

Anyway the photos provided above there are no holes for the ejector retaining pin, sear/disconnector pin, hammer/strut pin, or safety post. All fine and well, however looking further at the photos on ares website at the jig they are selling, it looks as the only holes they are locating are those for the sear/disconnector and the hammer/strut.

Anyone local there who can stop by and see what the progress is regarding actual production of these 2 products (frame and jig) and exactly what holes are completed? Phone calls and emails seem to be a futile effort.

Like I said above 2 weeks from release date and they are still running photos of prototypes? They should be mid way through their production run for that date and by now have the actual product to advertise.

Thanks

Ya know if every armchair QB with an opinion on this or that re the group buy would just sit back and relax this thing might happen on time. I can't imagine ARES trying to get work done with phone calls and visits from every "concerned" person that's got a whole $125 riding on this acting like it's the end of the world if the date's delayed or not met or there's not a photo of what they want to see. I've got close 600+ in on the first GB with another 500 if this second GB happens and I don't care if they arrive next year. This much I know, I'm in at an incredible price, it looks like an excellent product so I'll be a patient man. Group buys are always a gamble of sorts. There have been some bad ones here in the past it's true. I've never been burned but I have waited a bit more than promised but I've always been happy with the price point. If you can't afford to play the game then don't. Wait for full production and pay full price, simple as that.

I don't see any thing wrong with people asking questions, doesn't matter how much your in on it...Besides I'm sure the guy answering the phone isn't running the machines... Some people don't have that much to swing, I have about 700+ in the first group buy and I'm thinking of going in on this one as well. I'm just not sold on the polymer grip, from the pics it seems like there's not much holding it to the frame. I'd personally like to get my hands on it before I commit to 2 or 3 more.

The frame is designed like a STI frame, There are to rails sticking out that the grip slides onto. Then there are the 4 screws that secure it to the frame. Just like an STI. It is single stack and we have not been told if they plan on doing a double stack model yet. We were told in the other GB that there would be other colors.

It's not an STI so I doubt there will be a double stack version.

What surprises me is that STI never made a single stack grip frame for the 2011.
