ALL GONE!! THANKS!

_________________________


I spoke with the guys at Coonan this past week and we decided to have a "wipe yer Wallet out of cash" Group buy sale.

2 items will be offered.
______________________

For the first time we will be offering a limited run of ARGY CUT receivers on a group buy!! Check it out:

http://www.coonaninc.com/images/products/product_info/argieFALdetail.jpg



Pic is from their website. I don't have one in hand but judging from what I have received from them in the past, I am confident these will be the same quality we have come to expect from Coonan. More details are available about this one are available here:

http://www.coonaninc.com/products.php/LAR_3_ARGIE_CH_ASSY/cPath,7

I tried to imbed this but I am stupid when it comes to doing so.

Only 25 of these at the group buy price of $295 each with FREE SHIPPING are available! ONLY 25 AVAILABLE so get your orders TO ME quickly here on the thread. Ordering instructions are later in this thread.
___________________________

Also, we are offering a special buy of the normal type 3 receivers. These are the same receiver I have sold here before. ONLY 25 AVAILABLE!!

<a href="http://s76.photobucket.com/albums/j24/ricketts711/?action=view&amp;current=DSCF6371.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i76.photobucket.com/albums/j24/ricketts711/DSCF6371.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>

More photos are available here:

http://www.falfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?postid=2975661#post2975661

The special end of year, beginning New Year "Wipe yer Wallet out of cash" will be $270 SHIPPED. This is $5 off my 'normal' group buy price.

Now--these are type 3 receivers. No additional cuts, text, colors. No Russian brides included. NO CHANGES. These are their normal Type 3 receivers.

___________________________

The ONLY adder available is the usual Custom Serial number and this will cost you an additional $35, just like before--IF you want a custom Serial number. Available on both-- Argy's and Type 3.

_____________________________

To order these--do THIS!

POST HERE FIRST. I MEAN IT. I will provide you with a special code you enter in the Coonan website at order time--and I'll let you know when that is by form of PM communication. You will get a code and ordering instructions. If you don't go thru me and use the code I give you, you will be charged full price and you will have nothing but my condolences.

An additional note--pricing is FIRM per receiver and there are no discounts for purchase of more than one. That means if they can get 10 in a box, there will be NO postage discounts.
_______________

So to review--

25 ARGY cut receivers available at $295 each with FREE Shipping
25 Standard Type 3 receivers avalible at $270 each with FREE shipping

$35 each up charge per receiver if you want a custom serial number
________________


There you have it. Only 25 available of each type, so don't mess around and wait to see how these go and then try to lowball me. My Group Buys ALWAYS sell out and ALWAYS deliver satisfaction.

Want in?? POST HERE!!!!!!!!!

I don't know--you would need to ask them. It if is a state tax, I wager you would be paying that since you will be paying Coonan directly and not me.

Looks like interest is falling off.

I'll run the buy thru the weekend. Next week I'll start sending the notifications for payment.

Hi Ricketts,

Give the guys in the Forum a little bit more time....I think that everything has been really quiet this week in the Forum.....may be people still out enjoying some good quality time with family-friends-holidays! just a thought...:bow:

It would seem more likely that everyone is just tapped out from the holiday season. That's why I'm only buying two and not three!

Yep, the "wipe yer Wallet out of cash" sale came late for most I bet.
I was wiped out about 2 weeks before.
When the group buy was first posted and there were no responses yet, I hit "Post Reply" and typed out "I'll take one". My finger hovered over the Submit button, put I went and got a cup of coffee.
I still may talk myself into taking one before the weekend is over. :wink:

Well, then maybe we will try this.

I think I have an out of town work assignment on January 17th. I'll let this go until the end of that week. That should give everyone a bit of 'healing' time. Ya think that will do??

tonyfac
January 08, 2011, 08:42
that would be the 22nd, 2 weeks from today, and then how long after that till we get them? I was the first to sign up for a type 3 and have been patiently waiting but i might not want to wait another month for mine.

Ricketts
January 08, 2011, 08:45
You may not have to wait long. I will contact Coonan to see if I can get the current orders released.

tonyfac

Hi Ricketts...

I have already ordered an Argy cut Type III but need another one for a friend who is also a member on this site.

His member name is: Austex49

He also requires the serial number....he has been added to the Argy numbers list.

We can manage the transaction either individually, or separately...your call.

Thanks,

Graham.

Ricketts,

Put me down for one more T3 standard. My dad wants me to build him another with a kit he bought for himself at a gunshow last week.

That'll put me at a total of 3 receivers. I've already paid for the other two. do I use the same code?

Guys--PLEASE DON'T try and help by giving Coonan's number. Sure, it's out there but I have to give him the code to order so he can get the price. I don't know how many he wants or what style he wants so my count is now screwed and it generally creates more work. I appreciate the help but please let me handle all this, OK??

oleblu72
-you will get a PM from me tomorrow with the ordering instructions. I am assuming you want a type 3.

THANKS to you all.

January 17, 2011, 09:39
Indeed. All 3 of the receivers I bought are going on IMBEL kits. An excellent choice for a receiver, too; the finish on the receiver matches the finish on the kit fairly well for not being the same exact finish. Not to mention that they're well made.

Ricketts
January 17, 2011, 09:48
Looks like this one ins in the books. First time we didn't sell out--but with the holidays being over and everyone being broke, we did well.

Thanks for participating!! I believe some of these will be shipping this week.

Just talked to Connie at Coonan to pay for my receiver.
Great gal to talk to but she sounded like she had a cold. Turned out that it's currently 8 degrees w/ a minus 12 wind chill. Brrrr!

BTW, (Not to step on anyones toes.)
Note to Ricketts to pass on. There will be a slight delay in shipping. They are waiting on a cutting tool to come in so they can finish cutting the ejector blocks. Then park and ship.

I love that about Coonan, J&G thinks it must be none of your business when they send a tracking number only to the FFL, sometimes FFL's only call you at their convenience not yours..


LETS DO IT AGAIN! I need two more :wink:

That is supposed to be there and there has been quite a bit of discussion on teh gunsmith board about it. DO a search--it is a landing pad of sorts for the bolt.

BAD NEWS! Neither on of my receivers. Even comes close to fitting my Gunthings receiver wrench. The wrench has fit like a glove on DSA, Imbel, and Century receivers. Do you really need an oversive receiver wrench for Coonan receivers? Anyone else having this issue? Check it out!

Mine looks real good, not time to stare though it is already shipped out for assembly, park and paint..
I would definitely be in for more!

Finally I got the time to do the paperwork with my FFL and immediately got my Argy T3 Coonan with me.....Very Nice! I like it...nice finish...I couldn't find any problem at all....my Argy barrels (I have a few spares:D ) times at 10 PM so that is a very good sign...I'm happy! Thanks Ricketts.

Ricketts,

I saw you were possibly doing GB on Type III's in April? Is there a possibility that you will also be ordering any of the Argy cut receivers at that time? I would be in for one of the Argy's if you do.

Thanks!
