So now that its getting close. The not so fun part of all this. Gathering feedback on the varying wallet sizes and equally different budgets of every single person out there.

Starting to fire up polls across the interwebs to collect feedback so we can sit down and finally start mulling over in more detail how this is going to play out. There are some core rules to the poll for us to get proper feedback.

Based off the following list, which for the sake of data we will assume are true and accurate, we need to know how much people are willing to pay;

Offered in either a completed upper assembly package (slap it on your lower and go) or a retro-fit kit to your current rifle (adds *up to* 15lbs of weight to the AR platform rifle)

- compatible to ANY barrel length and can be used with ANY muzzle brake / flash hider / suppressor attachment

- compatible to ANY caliber AR platform

- muzzle rise eliminated completely

- heavily mitigated barrel torque & perceived recoil ( .308 that feels like a .22 for your imagination)

- cools down barrel between accuracy strings (3-5 shot groups) in under 3 minutes

- is a bolt on system, no dedicated rifle is required, can be removed/attached in under 60 seconds

- almost infinite customization options; engraving, any color, color patterns

- limited production at any one time; no inventory, made to order by hand and tailored to each single client

- free float setup

- numerous upgrade options for further customization

- completely unique styling visuals than anything on the market

- no plastic components

I'll make it so 2 votes can be done, as we need some feedback on the UAP offerings and the RFK offerings. Please keep the comments civil and remember that your wallet size is relative only to your own budget, not other people's budget. This goes both ways.

UAP = Upper Assembly Package
RFK = Retro Fit Kit

30 Day Poll, 2 Votes Allowed; Re-Voting Enabled.

Thanks for any feedback.

I think that's the key for this product to work. If it does and positive reviews are posted around the net, what people are willing to pay will probably go up as well. Look at the SCAR 17; that's one of the big reasons people are willing to pay what they pay.

I voted $1k-1.5k FWIW on the assumption that the above is true.

Oh yea, absolutely. That is why we wanted to collect data on if we work of the theory that "Yes, the product does everything listed" and if it is capable of doing all this, what are people willing to pay?

We have some units scheduled to ship out to some of the big bloggers on the internet (The Truth About Guns and The Firearm Blog).

They've been instructed after testing the product to either:

A. Let the world know how awesome it is and it lives up to the claims

B. Let the world know how crappy and stupid it is and it does not work

I was very clear that there would be absolutely no censorship requested and they are free to take them apart and report on any aspect of the system they want in any manner they want. A company is just lying to their own checkbooks if they proceed with manufacturing something that obviously doesn't work.

Better to pull the plug at some point than deceive ourselves and spend more money going forward.

It might be wise to have a selection "Not Interested". Might be useful, sorry to say...

If you are not interested you simply don't vote.

We've already collected data along those lines previously.

This poll would apply to anyone who is interested.

Some good numbers so far. Seems a lot of other places are answering with similar stuff.
