Well... Sadly, most of those who would complain think they can get something equal for less, but when pressed to disclose the source, can't seem to corroborate it.
I spoke with Tim (antiUSSA) earlier, and has definately decided on spec'ing a PRK Legal, Springfield Loaded - Parkerized 45acp.
Price has not been finalized, but it should be competitive with any other Distributor's pricing, I would be guessing in the ~$600 range (+/-$50-75), but the details will be determined very soon.
He was wondering if the Member's here might have an interest.
I need to find out from Jason if it's okay with him to use the name, maybe the logo, but what I would like to do (and this IS VERY Do-Able) is to have a 1911Forum.com version. The gun's would essentially be the same, EXCEPT, for the engraving.
I would imagine that most of the member's here, would MUCH prefer "1911Forum.com" to "AR15.com" on their Limited Edition 1911. Also need to find out from Tim if there might be any special "Serializing"...
What I need to figure out is if this is even worth pursuing... If this is anything like the Rifle was, it will be pretty Man-Intensive, really, a Thankless Job, but we have someone willing to do this... We just need to let him know if there's some interest.
So... Who would be interested? I know I'd be up for at least one...
