I thought I posted on this at some point, but I am in for at least one and probably two.

I'm guessing that any plans that any firearms manufacturer has in the works has just been put on hold until January to hear what the damage is going to be.

So you are thinking they aren't going to be making these until Congress meets? I am sure Feinstein's bill will be presented but you think they could get it passed within the month of January?

What concerns me is that this keeps getting bumped back. Before last Friday that really did not matter. If it took 6 months to get it that was no big deal.

But now...the fear is that if it takes 3 months (pulled that # out of the air) to get them and then you have to build your gun, will that still beat any new legislation.

I'll throw it out on the table here....I bought a kit specifically to use with one of these receivers. Now after the world turned upside down last Friday, the fear is that the legislation will be here before the receivers are and at that point I have a "post ban" or even a contraband receiver that I cannot use to build the Kit or if you can still build it it will have to be in some god awful looking "ban compliant" configuration.

I'm not trying to be the voice of doom, I'm just beginning to get a little concerned about how long it might take to finally get these.

I understand that. I am sitting on some metric kits so I am trying to buy up some receivers for them too before they pass some legislation that will do nothing to increase the safety of school children or society as a whole.

Just me thinking out loud.....but a receiver is classified as "OTHER" when completing your 4473, it not a rifle it NOT a pistol, it is nothing to do with any possible AWB....why would any manufacture NOT continue??? I will call Coonan tomorrow to ask this exact question....I will post the answers I receive from them....

Not sure who said...."I AM OUT" but my thoughts and suggestions to you is.....DON'T BE A QUITTER! Stand your ground!

molṑn labé, that doesn't mean....I WILL GIVE WILLINGLY!!

It was me. I have been fighting this for 40+ years as a collector, dealer. I am too old/tired to fight anymore and I will let you younger guys battle it out.
Sorry to bail, but a few of you will be getting some nice parts and kits. They will not go to waste.

I really am thinking this will be another run by the D's and I am also thinking that they will not have the numbers. They're an extremely vocal city minded minority. Oh, they're going to come at us but I don't think it will go. I see more females on facebook espousing gun rights points of view this week, even after sharing that they were weeping over the children. Frankly I was pleasantly shocked that there is a growing segment in America that gets it.

I'm not inclined to panic over this and now is not the time to roll over. I am concerned for sure.

Capt. Ron, I can understand how you feel but look at your parachutist wings and recall that you never ever give up the fight. I've been feeling a bit blue since the crappy outcome of the election. Semper Fidelis.

Not an answer but, I ordered a Coonan STG-58 receiver two weeks ago and Connie told me it might be six to eight weeks before I saw it. Then she called me today and told me it was going in the mail.... I told her that we were all breathlessly awaiting the British cut receivers and she told me they were feverishly working on the prototype. She did not seem to think there were going to be any issues.

Lac,

Any possibiliy to get Coonans info so that I can make sure everything's in a row with my FFL. I'm pretty certain that he's not on file with Coonan and, I would like to pre-emptively correct that if at all possible.

Again, thanks so much for all the heads uppin' you've been doing with this.

Well save your coins.....it is NOT about IF.....it will happen and it IS HAPPENING NOW!!!

Yeah Coonan and I talked about it, EVERYONE was hoping this would happen sooner but due to certain issues as noted in this thread, there were situations that slowed this down....really hate that it is going to happen about the same time as Christmas bills will hit.....this will happen and will be a one time chance to get your special edition COONAN BRITT CUT ALL INCH CUT RECEIVER!

You will NOT want to miss out on this one!!!

Oh, I'm saving-believe me. Compared to my M14 habit, this is a bargain!

I even dug out my UK kit today to see what I'm missing.

I've been watching this thread for quite awhile. Glad to see things are starting to gel.

Yeah Coonan and I talked about it, EVERYONE was hoping this would happen sooner but due to certain issues as noted in this thread, there were situations that slowed this down....really hate that it is going to happen about the same time as Christmas bills will hit.....this will happen and will be a one time chance to get your special edition COONAN BRITT CUT ALL INCH CUT RECEIVER!

You will NOT want to miss out on this one!!!

Still in for at least 4 Chris. Depending on price maybe a few more for future builds.

The external, machined contours of the UK receivers were different from those manufactured in Australia by Lithgow. They accepted parts interchangeably, however.

Go to the Enrtreprise Arms website and you can compare the two types in their product line.

You can build an Aussie kit on a Brit receiver, and a Brit kit on an Aussie receiver.

I believe DSA has Aussie type receivers right now, and it looks like Coonan Arms is going to be offering a Brit receiver very soon. IOW, it appears you have a choice for whatever kit you have and don't have to just "settle" for whatever you can find. Note: If you wait too long, you will have to "settle" for whatever's left over after the limited production of these receivers ends.

Lots of inch kits have been built on metric receivers as well, with just minor alterations to the receiver itself.

Looking for British parts kit

Does anyone have an British parts kit they would like to trade for an Aussie parts kit? The kit is a nice one. No barrell came with the kit.

Ill contact the when I can to get my ffl on record with them ahead of the game. If I have enough cash I may end up getting 2 not just 1. As I have an indian to build and a matching #'s brit kit on an aussie receiver I could switch out.
