Some of the shipments have only 9 digits preceded by a VJ. What is the VJ? Maybe these were shipped using VietJet? Not sure how to track. All joking aside, it looks like multiple receiver orders were all marked with a VJ - what does it denote?
Multiple items require a higher insured value, wouldn't you agree?

:cool:

Picked mine up today. Look great. Gun shop employees jealous.

What are thoughts about preparing these for short and long term storage?

Standard clean with desired solvent followed by favorite gun oil?

Short term being a couple months waiting for a build. Long being sometime in the future when the perfect parts kit is found.

A special thank you to Terry for putting together this group buy together. EnzoFAL + I took delivery of our receivers this afternoon. You did a fabulous job facilitating the group buy, my friend!

I know it's here, have held the box in my hands. %$^& NICS delay. Sometimes I hate my name. Yes, I know about UPIN. I'll likely need to wait until this coming Thursday to take possession.

In any case, thanks Terry!

Picked mine up last week. Very nice. Now all I need left is a bolt; never would've thought that'd be the harder part to get. This is going to end up being a nicer build than I originally thought once all is said and done. Thanks for setting this up, Terry!

Picked up the receiver today. What a beautiful receiver. Thank you, Terry! I hope that there is another group buy in the future so that I can build the Para I now dream of! :biggrin:

Interesting thread. I'm surprised he doesn't keep them listed on GB constantly, unless he just got sick of the BS from stupid buyers.
Yeah, if you are an importing, distributor, wholesaler type business model you don't want to mess around with end users one at a time. Selling 500 in a whack is a lot more appealing

I cannot believe I missed it. Please count me in if you consider doing another group buy, Terry! I count nine who have expressed interest in this thread.
