I have a manufacture lined up to do the lowers and to get a final price quote they need a picture.

Can some one draw up an outline of an AR15 in the center of an outline of the state of Oregon with "TEAM" above and "OREGON" below?

Post it up or email me. It's going to be a great price.

Can I get it as a pistol lower?

If so, I'm in for two (pistol and rifle), if not I'll just get one.

There is no difference between a pistol and rifle lower -- except that the pistol lower must never have been built into a rifle. So any new (from the maufacturer) lower can become either -- but once it becomes a rifle lower (basically has a rifle stock installed) it can never go back.

Has to bee 4473'd as a pistol.

Picture looks good! Does everyone like that?

Didn't you tell me in another thread that it has to be originally documented by the mfr as a pistol?

Also the drawing is good, but will the engraver be able to do that kind of detail on the AR? Maybe it should be simplified. Also, no mention of AR15.com?
Link Posted: 1/5/2006 7:15:34 PM EDT
I can do variations on the picture. The one catch is that the AR illustration is most likely copyrighted and I'm sure this doesn't fall under fair use. With more time I could come up with my own illustration. I could try a simpler illustration of the AR.

I didn't think about the AR15.com part. Should that be on the illustration, or would that be on the other side of the magazine well?

Depending on the price, I might take two lowers. I would certainly be in for one.

Picture looks great.

That level of detail is fine. I'd prefer a M4 in there but I like it!

The picture is fine, "ar15.com" might not be.
Link Posted: 1/5/2006 7:34:39 PM EDT
Thanks!

I can do a M4 if you'd prefer.

I like it! I might like to see a different font for the Team Oregon. I'll see if I have one closer to what I'm thinking of.

Even if it don't work, it's damn funny.

Possibly "ZOMBIES" instead of SHTF?

ETA: Just to piss of da Feds: Engrave a small circle directly above the selector hole.

Remind me to invest in photoshop........on that note...night, night.....time for bed.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 2:47:58 AM EDT
I like the first one, with AR15.COM over it. I don't think the image of an AR would be under any kind of copyright, ref recent decision on Colt V Bushmaster.
Can I get one with a different caliber designation? I need a dedicated 458SOCOM lower. That would put me in for 2.

+1 on the M4.

Might reduce the font size a bit on the "Team Oregon" or as WS4LIF said, new font.
RotorDemon - Love the SHTF idea. I would guess that everything comes with a price tag.

Are we going for a cool, custom lower or the cheapest lower on the market?

Great idea - Let's make this happen.

I would also recommend no weapon outline. After reading the posts here for almost a month, it is my humble opnion that we we never all agree on what model of weapon to have displayed.

Link Posted: 1/6/2006 8:05:32 AM EDT
The biggest point to bear in mind is that everything needs to be line drawings - large areas of "color" (as in the TEAM OREGON words can't be represented easily if you want this engraved.

So just lines, no large block areas, half-tones etc.

It might be possible to do varying width lines, but that would add to the price.

KISS
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 8:16:51 AM EDT
Why would you not want an outline of an AR on there?
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 8:38:25 AM EDT
Oh I would like to see a AR outline in the logo, but which one? M4, A2, Flat top, 16", 20", Clean or with "toys"
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 8:41:02 AM EDT
I wouldn't care and dought many here would either....just cool to not have an atomic symbol or a gay deer's head on the side of your lower.

I agree. Count me for two of whatever we come up with.

There is nothing I love more then playing with Photoshop when I should be working. It definitly needs a better rifle outline and I left the serial number off.

How's this for the font? I'm still trying to get a better M4 line drawing. So the consensus is to have an M4 with the A2 upper and no forward grip, no lights, no lasers, bottle openers, etc...?
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 11:29:42 AM EDT
Is the bottom of the state crooked like that?

I think it's perfect other then that.

thats a good looking rifle.
Link Posted: 1/6/2006 2:20:35 PM EDT
I'm not sure about the shape of the state -- I used a USGS map that listed counties and I removed everything and then used Photoshop's stroke to get the outline. I suspect that some images of the state have the state's borders simplified.

Or you can look at it as a metaphor for CA pushing into our state.

I'm not entirely happy with the way the M4 looks. It's like trying to draw a hand.

I couldn't find a manual with a nice line drawing to "borrow."
