Will do.


Most milsim events within a day drive of southeast Louisiana get at least a squad from my local community in attendance. Events like TCA Bonestrike and Trench Knife we fill out an entire company plus most of SF. I'll keep you posted.

Alright, got everything in today.

I do have bad news though. The threading for the M5 stock screws got messed up somehow and needs to be fixed for the receiver to install into the stock correctly. I'm seeing what my options are for fixing it with the shop. Worst case I can drill and tap to M6 and include adapters back to M5 (or I can just leave it M6 if anyone prefers). It looks possible to do without interfering with trigger guards or stocks. It's just going to take a little extra time to figure this out and make the fix happen.

They were tapped at an angle.

How much of an angle on the misalignment?

It's pretty substantial. Something like 10-15 degrees. Not something I could fix by just running a tap through.

Most likely I'll have steel inserts put in, whether that be helicoil or threaded inserts. Should be a stronger solution in the long run anyway.

Alright here's the deal, the shop is going to fix them. It's just going to add a little extra time (I'm guessing a 2-3 weeks) before I can get everyone's receiver shipped out. I am sorry for the delay, but I'm not going to deliver sub-par products.

The black receiver didn't have any issues so it will be shipped out Monday.

Good news! I have everything back and we are good to go it seems. Before shipping I will be going through each receiver and pressing in the sleeves then test fitting parts and making any tweaks if necessary. I am expecting to have everyone's receivers shipped out by next week. I'll send each person their tracking number once it goes out.

Alright, got everything together and finished. I think these turned out pretty well. Shipping will be tomorrow for all those that have made their final payment.



I'm still unsure if I will do another batch of these too (ended up being more work than I expected). I can guarantee that any future ones will be more expensive, mainly due to an original quoting error when I was arranging manufacturing. Basically, ya'll got these pretty close to cost. Plus, if I do make another run it probably won't be a group buy. I'd rather get a batch ready to go then offer them up instead of keeping people waiting as I'm definitely not a fan of delaying peoples orders.

Just received mine this past monday. Man the pictures alone dont do it justice as its finish just looks so much better in person and it feels super sturdy. My only regret is not getting a shorter length though.

Quick update: I will probably be doing a small batch of these within the next month or so. No group buy this time, I'll just order and get them prepped up front then post everything for sale at one time. As mentioned before, they are going to be a little more money than the first batch but not radically so. Working on some other parts to go with them too.

If you have an interest in getting one, just let me know. I'm probably doing half grey and half black for colors.

Quick update: I was able to get the second batch on order today. There will be 3 grey, and 2 black sets available. Every receiver will come with a matching rail and aluminum end cap this time. I'll post more details once everything gets closer to being finished.

I don't have a final number on the cost yet as I'm waiting until I have everything in hand and confirm there are no issues. With the first batch there were a few cost overruns that I'm trying to avoid this time.
