Howdy, I was browsing my emails and found out i had actually ordered one of these altrd lvaw handguards back in november of 2022.
Anyone know if this guy is still working on this? I am assuming not lol.

Mine was 'meh' - I got in on the first run.

Looks like he folded. Good luck getting a rail? IG has some people reaching out and his public profile on a few airsoft pages has been inactive since ~October 2022.

Yeah I was one of the original runs, I already got my first one a long time ago, agreed it was "meh" especially the anodizing and finish but there is no better option.
Ordered a 2nd one last year just for shits, and here we are.
Oh well, not like I can get my money back lol.

I ordered one as well back in October 2022.  Looks like we are all screwed.  I paid through PayPal and since it was so long ago, no refund or dispute.   Really a shame….I love the look of these things.  

No, I am not happy about this, and would love to figure out a way to go after the guy to get our money back…

Everything I’ve read indicates he’s gone radio silent.  Not responding to emails, hasn’t posted on IG.

I have one from the 2nd run and it’s as solid as a factory SD rail.

I seem to recall reading something about him possibly having cancer, but who knows.

I owned a first gen rail and a second gen. The first gen was pretty good, but came back a little too far where the stock would catch on it when folded. The finish was okay and very smooth. The second gen rail fixed the folding stock issue and the finish was much better. They even made it a little textured. It locks up tighter than my Sig SD rail.

I hope everything works out for everyone and you all get your rails, but it isn't looking good.

Any update on these? Or still no comms?

Nothing.  We all got screwed and that’s twice for me now, since I’m one of those that got screwed by Dead Air.  On a roll…..

Odd, I do see that you can pre-order the 8" legacy handguard now. From what it sounds like, everyone who ordered over a year ago is still waiting.

From the comments posted on his latest Insta post, he went bankrupt, and everything is gone. We are all screwed.

I corresponded with him via email and Instagram back in 2022 when he brought orders back online. He alluded to some health problems as well.

Don't place orders, as it's entirely possible he or someone else may have access to the website and is just using it to extract more.

Holy sh*t, I was googling to find their site because I couldn't remember the exact name. Thankfully, I saw this thread first and decided to take a look.
