Not sure if anyone here has been following this thread; I've been keeping an eye on it for a while now. These looks pretty cool, I think I'll be ordering one.

Wonder if there is a trademark issue with that.

Earlier in that thread they (Umbrella) show that they actaully hold the copyright for what they are marketing. I didn't pay super close attention to that part, but from what they say, it's all legit.

This might be dumb (Since I didn't read the entire thread) but where can you find the prices or where to buy them at? Just curious.

Another lower always leads to another upper. No use having half a weapon. building is one of my favorite hobbies.

Dammit, I only just got down to two unoccupied lowers!

Oh well....no sense in becoming a member just to get a receiver or two. Limited to under 100 (first run) and only available to zs members

If a Michigan member is ordering any I will take two and cover shipping for up to two receivers and one transfer fee for their order...

It's in the ZS thread.
Please email SALES at UCWRG.com with the quantity of receivers that you want, your full name and contact information, your forum ID, your dealer’s name, along with your first and second choice in serial numbers for each receiver ordered.

All I did was email them and I already had my FFL swap information with them. They required a USPS MO for the first batch due to the CC payment not being available yet.

I sent my USPS MO two days ago. Hopefully the lowers will be here some time next week.

Yeah, but then you wouldn't have a lower who's manufacturer stamp was Umbrella Corp. You'd just have a Spikes lower (or whatever) with Umbrella logos on it.

While some engravers might do that (your local trophy store comes to mind), they would be violating the Trademarks that Umbrella holds for firearms use (whether knowingly or not). Engraving the name Colt and the pony on a NoDak lower would be the same type of violation.

My lowers came in today. I suck at taking photos, but the lowers are very nice. The rear detent spring is held in by a tiny set screw. Each lower came with a hex key tool to remove the screw.

I tried getting a better pic of the Umbrella logo, but I couldn't. The logo alternates with etched and non etched surfaces to resemble the real logo of red/white.

The only thing I do not know is what the little green thingy is in the fifth picture. Its behind where the FCG sits. Any one know what its for?

MP15T–––– I THINK THAT GREEN THING IS TO HELP TIGHTEN THE FIT BETWEEN THE LOWER AND UPPER/ TENSION SCREW....

WHY DO YOU THINK THEY DID SUCH A LOW INTRO PRODUCTION??? CONGRATS GUYS AND ENJOY......

The green thingy is a nylon tipped set screw that you adjust to set the tension between the upper and lower. It's designed to eliminate any slop between the two.

Mine should be hitting my FFL today. Can't wait!
