OK, here is the deal:
I am pleased to say that Ameetec Arms has agreed to offer us stripped Ameetec lowers for $80 shipped if we can raise at least 35 orders. The terms of this deal are as follows:
1) Total price per lower, including shipping: $80
2) Minimum order to secure this price: 35
3) All lowers will be shipped at one time to a single FFL in NJ - Arms-n-Ammo
4) The receiving FFL will charge an additional transfer fee See transfer costs below
5) You will place your orders with me but you will not send me any money
6) Once we have achieved 35 orders, you will be directed to send payment directly to Ameetec, I will not handle any of your money personallyTransfer Fees
I am pleased to say that the FFL doing the transfer in NJ will be board member PK90. He is Paul of Arms-n-Ammo. Arms-n-Ammo
Transfer fees listed below are total out the door cost, including the $15 NICS fee.
1 Lower - $30
2 Lowers - $40
3 Lowers - $50
4 Lowers - $60
I will post transfer fees for NY members once we get the FFL nailed down...
In the interests of full disclosure, I encourage anyone interested to contact Ameetec Arms directly to verify all of this. I will also provide all of my personal contact info to everyone placing an order. Also, and I want to make this clear - The prices listed above are exactly what the businesses involved are charging. I am not looking to make a single dollar off of this deal.
I am still looking into which FFL to use, trying to secure a deep discount on transfer fees given the number of sales involved.
At this point, please post here or IM me (email appears to be flaky right now so don't go that route at the moment) indicating how many lowers you seriously want to order. I will keep a running tally posted here so we all know where we stand.
Note to New York members - once I settle on a NJ FFL, I will find out about forwarding a batch on to a single FFL in NY so that you can jump in on this deal. I will post info about the additional shipping fees and what your net cost would be as soon as I know it.Looks like the NY FFL is going to be LRB Sales in Floral Park, NY. I do not know what their transfer fees are, you will have to contact them directly.
Please don't hesitate to post any questions. Also, I hope Ameetec will stop by and participate in the thread!Current OrdersTotal: 45NJ

OK folks, it looks like we have reached our minimum order of 35! At this point, I ask that everyone who has ordered send me an IM with your real names so that I can forward Ameetec the list. As soon as I get all names compiled, I will ask that you send money to Ameetec!
Great job guys! I'm really glad we were able to do this!UPDATE - 8/4/04
