    88, Barnes lowers (and upper also) are hard anodized like most other manufacturers ... Noveske’s receivers are more a Cerakote coating.

    I will also say $85 for a stripped BPM lower is an excellent price ... I can’t remember seeing one for under $100 at Fuquay Gun or Triangle Gun Vault which are the 2 best prices LGS’s in the surrounding counties (I’ve seen them at 1 fancy store $130). Andrew seems to be doing a “group buy” type thing add adding in the logo part also. Heck, to bad we can’t have an option for the complete Basic Patrol Carbine with the logo and possible CFF serial number in this buy ... $750 CFF logo’d BPM Patrol Carbine would be the Deal of the Year.

    We have no idea if the SNs will start with 0001 or use their current lineage of numbers.

    Even if they do, it would be a hassle to try to keep up with what everybody wanted. And some people may be requesting numbers that don’t exist (like they want 302 but we only have 250 made).

    ...and I’d have to think the single digit SNs are already spoken for.

    If we could come up with the actual design/logo, the actual selector markings, and the actual cost, the buyers would know what they would be getting and could make for a more accurate pre-order count. Until then, we are just guessing.

    How are any SNs spoken for when we don't even know what they will be?

    I don't care what it has on it as long as the CFF logo is on it.

    No Pew-Pew-PewPewPew selector would be funny. Past that, as long as the forum logo's on there, I don't care.

    Just to be clear about my comment, I would assume (and have zero problems with) the owners of this site would have first choice of SNs. Thus if we were able to start with 0001, the six of you deserve the low numbers if you wanted them.

    Now if they start with 2856, or wherever Barnes happens to be in their sequence, it’s probably not an issue.

    ...didn’t want anybody to think I was claiming any SN, low number or not, just because I started the poll threads.

    I agree with starting with the forum owners. From there, perhaps go by member number. For example, you as member #108 would have preference over me as member #170. Just a thought.

    Y’all making way too big a deal over serial numbers. Whatever happened to
    “Hey, y’all want a couple of these or no?”

    “Sure!”

    “Let us know how many , and we’ll holler when they start production”

    I’d like my serial number to be 3825, but it ain’t gonna happen

    Not sure how I missed this, but if you guys are getting lowers from BPM, then count me in too! I would need three.

    I voted 2, depending on time and available funds I may take 3.

    I don’t care what the serial numbers are. They don’t even have to be consecutive.

    See how easy that is?

    We also had these a while back. Still partial to the III% looking CFF, but I'm in regardless.

    Depending on when the final price and if I could sell something to get the money together I'd like to have one.

    I understand that it's the patriot logo. I'm asking which logo that one is. Sorry for the confusion.

    To the several that mentioned it...I’d assume everybody that buys multiples (at least on the initial distribution) would get sequential SNs.

    I'm in. Depending on what the price is determines my quantity. I don't care about SN or fire control markings. No pew, pew, and pew pew pew I'd be good with.
