For your second question, this is a completely in-house project we have been working on for a few years. PTR has no involvement in this project.
So you are saying Palmetto had stamping dies made, cocking tubes, supports, triple trees, barrels, cocking handles, lower housings, trigger packs, etc. all made in house and you are not using outsourced parts? I personally would find this hard to believe.
What people are inquiring on is the source of the parts as people have been burnt in the past. If you can assure people that you are using quality parts and not cutting corners you will have a big following. Until then you are going to have a lot of skepticism and critics. For example if you told people that the flats were LCS or MKE stampings, barrels, trunnions and bolts were RCM and you collaborated with PTR industries people would be at ease as these part makers have earned a reputation in the HK parts business. As a no namer in the HK world, you are going to have to prove yourselves with quality out of the gate.
You may even want to see if Henderson Defense - Battlefield Las Vegas would run a few sample hard and give you feedback.
With that said what lower pack will they come with and what is the target price range?
