Thanks for the heads up Jeff. Might grab one for a future ARM build or keep it for the one you just finished up for me

red89notch - you had better call Lewis $ Black about that.
I THINK they didn't get close enough to 100 pre-orders to do those carry handle rear hangers, so it may have been called off. Call them up to find out for sure.

There credit card processor wasn't setup correctly for it. Rodney should email you shortly but if he hasn't he will issue a refund as I got mine.

Also I believe they may work with Apex to sell more

FWIW. It took a couple days b4 i was contacted about being refunded my $$ when I took part in the pre-order, but it came minutes after I got the email. Very professionally handled imo.

I have the handle, but not the lower hg retainer. Can I buy just that? I emailed them a while back about it never heard anything.

The Pre-Orders continue to come in, though they remain inadequate to meet the tooling costs associated with a minimum run of 100 units at the price quoted. As there's no reason to terminate this endeavor, the Pre-Order option will remain open. When a 100 units are reached, we'll announce it and move forward with the production.

Word-of-mouth remains the most efficient means of expediting this....

Thanks to all who've contributed to this opportunity.

Sorry, we don't have any either, hence the Pre-Orders to manufacture them.

Thank you to all who've pre-ordered the Handle Assembly. Its slowly creeping up towards the minimum required to make a run of 100 units. Word of mouth is working.
