Very nice!

Any chance of getting a custom serial number (SgtMajXXX####)? Speaking of custom work: How about changing "Hooah" (an army term) to "Sgt Maj's Happy Switch"?

I'd like to bounce the idea off of the SNCO Assoc. and Mrs. Sgt Maj as a possible retirement gift.

ETA: Can you supply a color matched flat top upper receiver?

how much for one?

and yeah van we get the hooah changed to oorah?( "get some" would be nice as well ;) )
Link Posted: 1/1/2006 8:08:14 AM EST
OMFG, I want it.

Give it to me now.

I will give you a great amount of pleasure if you give it to me.

I will give you a great amount of pain if you don't.

But seriously, gimme!

How much would one of those pups go for? Willing for trade? :-)

The plan is to have two ways to order.
A short run of "standard" lowers where you cannot custom any markings
or
Total custom lower that you custom order any of the markings.

Costs are still being hammered out.

YOU...



ARE...



GOD!



I'd love to have one. Would you be willing to trade standard lowers for one of those? (including a lil bit of $)

I will take a standard one once you get it hashed out

I'm not a military vet, but I'm pretty sure that "hooah" is an Army term, while "oorah" is a Marine term.

Nice work!

"Hooah" is an Army term,at least it was when I was 11B.I think file clerks say it now,so it kind of lost it's appeal

"oorah" is Marine.

THAT IS AWSOME!! I want one...

but you've gotta take the army Hooh off it .. Marines don't say that. Ooh Rah would work much better



EDIT: I don't care if it works or not I'll take the ooh Rah feature cut into it.

Very nice Steve. Great work as always. The most common spelling is Ooh-Rah.

Ooh-Rah!

Make the Skull smile and then "jolly roger" would be great.The crossed swords I think meant they would kill every one..so"killem all"
Navy Seals=The only easy day is yesterday or "frog man"for shorter wording
Special Forces=Di Opresso Liber crossed arrows and sword with wording
101st=death from above
1st Cav=Gary owen
82nd=all american
Army=Hooah
Rangers=Follow me
Marine Recon=swift,silent,Deadly
Air commandos=So that others may live

Just a few for thought..even Semper Fi on the marine lower

Steve a great looking piece. Here is another idea since I am a Nam vet. Would be nice to see one that says Vietnam and the years you where there like this. I think alot of us Nam vets would sure like to have one. I served with the Army so the Marines would be out for me LOL.
VIETNAM

Air Commando - Any time any place
Pararescue - That others may live
Combat Control - First there
TACP - Putting bombs on target -or- Cleared hot
Combat Weather - ?

any chance of an Air Force symbol but with something else for those of us that are not spec ops?
going to do all the services?

btw - my user name is a contraction of several acronyms of my AF career; sounds cool though

if somebody did like a nam one or a TET or something like, maybe purple heart I could see myself getting one for my dad.

I think you should build a rifle with the USMC lower and present it to R Lee Ermey.

I want one that says "67th Chairborne", the logo should be a large chair and a crossed keyboard/mouse... the selector should say "Safe-Semi-Pwned".

How about this:

" USMC S/S 8541 " for the Marine Scout/Snipers.

I hold a very special place in my soul for Marine Scout Snipers

Just thought of another one...


I hope everyone knows who GySgt Carlos N. Hathcock II was... Well, maybe get the White Feather engraved into the receiver as well... That would be real awesome!

that's a trademark though so I don't think that can be done and sold..

<<<<< I would be very interested in the lowers.

I would love to buy one of these for my Brother who is a former Jarhead.

Maybe it's just me but I would rather it have the standard black mil-spec hard anodizing. Is that an option?

Let me know when you get a price worked out.

Hmm, I think I could put the Marine version to good use. Now, to get pricing.....

Semper Fi

I agree, "kill" switch would be wicked sweet, I'm in for one either way.
