    I am in for 1 with no details. May add one or two once we get the final specifications determined.

    Status update? We’re 2 weeks away from bonus time, so I’m definitely good for 5 per the vote....

    Save the bonus money. Good chance it will be a limited run of 100 or so, billet.

    I can only say that I might commit to "several" [I selected 3 in the poll], depending. I need more information, I think.:rolleyes:

    [Edit: I just saw Butter's post saying "billet", so that's a plus, given the estimated price point.:) ]

    @Butter

    Will all requested in the poll be available? For example, I had asked for 4 sequential (if possible). Is that still an option?

    I only ask because a limited number will be made available with ~150 requested.

    Sorry for the detailed question...

    Edit for what I'm thinking right now:
    -First billet run will be approx 100-150, price is still being worked on, but will be north of $100
    -Supporting members will get first dibs,limited to 1 each
    -Markings will be Safe/Fire
    -Serial number will be CFF-00xxx
    -There maybe another run depending on how the turnout on the first run goes

    This is all we know for now, we haven't hit the lottery yet to quit our day jobs, so please be patient with us. I know this has been a slow process

    I’m not surprised. This forum is full of the most amazing degenerates and lovable deplorables.

    Even my wife has commented on how all of the people I’ve met through here are nice. I met a guy to sell him some silver and he gave us a baby gift. Had never met the guy before. You can’t beat this place.

    I am curious, why the shift to billet? Forged is stronger and lighter.

    Probably based on the capabilities of the forum member, I would assume.

    Shoot, I got in line for one of the CMP 1911s. My number is close to 13,000. That means I’m not getting one of the first year’s run.

    This is a cakewalk :D
