Hoping to make the cut for two (2) receivers, just waiting on a reply to an email, phone call or fax. Fingers crossed.

Payment info sent via PM since I'm stuck at work until 11PM tonight

Quite a few seemed to have found this last minute as I did. Hopefully we all made it in.

Won't know until my name shows up in the first post or get contact back from Black Elk. Tried all day via several contact methods but I'm sure Black Elk is swamped by now and am crossing my fingers for the best on the 2 receivers I'd like to buy.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Hope it works out, this may be the last at any reasonable price.

I just faxed my info (cc, etc); I trust faxing more than emailing such info in plaintext.

Let's see what will happen.

As you can imagine Dave is swamped with last minute requests. I talked with him on the phone and he's busy running credit cards. Quite an undertaking to say the least.
I think we're lucky he's running the show. Now the wait begins....This is the hard part. I can imagine Imbel kits flying out the doors soon at several parts stores!

Bear with me guys and all will be ok.

OP was updated with payment info; if your name is blue either you have not made payment arrangements or there is a problem with your CC.

if you have been having trouble getting me on the phone keep trying it is likely I am on the phone with another person in this group buy; please be patient and continue to call.

Enterprise has them...but they have gone up to $580 for a refinished kit (parked)

http://entreprise.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=3

$480 for standard un-re-parked...

http://entreprise.com/shop/item.aspx?itemid=2

They were $429 and $359 before the madness hit

What kind of and what condition are the barrels in the Entreprise kits ?

Chrome lined non ect.

Also noticed there is a 1 next to my name on the list. Shouldn't it be a 2 for 2 receivers ?

Looks like it was fixed. Thank you for the hard work.

I got off the phone with him some 10min ago. He is available right now to talk to people on the phone. So do call him already! If it takes a bit, try again later.

We are almost there!

Right now if you have to choose, make sure he has at least the payment info. You can send him the ffl info later (just make sure it is before he is ready to ship).

Guys we have a very short window left here if your name is listed in red you either haven't paid or there are issues with your payment method, if you are unable to correct whatever the issue is over this weekend the order will be placed Monday without you. Yes Monday, PARS has granted some mercy with this order so we have the weekend to finalize..

The phones have slowed down a great deal so now is the time to call. I won't be answering anymore 2300hr or 0600hr calls sorry its time I got a bit of sleep.

scootr29, I thought a lot of companies like Enterprise have warned they are swamped during the holidays (the legislation panic did not make it any easier) and are kinda being behind in replying to questions. I mean, I emailed a question to wideners and when they did reply they said they are taking at least 3 days to reply to emails.

On a diff note, it seems we are down to 9 people who need to contact Dave. Not bad.

gunplumber (and others): I too have sent a few emails and pms to Dave (Black Elk) without much luck. And I have called and left messages. And faxed my card info. Yesterday I was able to finally talk to him on the phone and got things straightened out. He is overwhelmed handling everyone in this GB.

And said *right now* the best way to get hold of him is keep on calling. Don't give up. Try calling today. And then tomorrow. Be persistent.

Remember, it took me a week to get this done.

I am new to FAL Files, but got in to this fairly early. I got pretty rapid responses from Black Elk, but as time wore on, (and I had a poorly labeled FFL sent to him, NOT his fault, but trouble at my end), he was getting more and more busy, and politely said so with PMs to me. Hang in there, he is doing a lot of work at a busy time of year with a perfect storm of political events on top of it all.

Well, this group buy was initiated in SEPTEMBER with an original end date around Thanksgiving. David graciously extended the end date I guess because he is a nice guy. Why so many waited until the very last minute I cannot figure. As far as I know the they referred to in some posts is one guy and a phone and a computer. I am sure he is doing his best to accommodate the late and ill prepared. Just for all you hand ringers this is now going to cost me an additional several hundred dollars because of a "use tax" taking affect. It is what it is, but sooner would have been better. Anyway Happy New Year Falaholics and that was not meant to be snarky. Be patient with David as I am pretty sure this service is practically free gratis and this past two weeks has probably got him wondering why he got into this.

I'm glad I noticed it when I did. Been over 10 years since I bought a kit and receiver. Just happened to pop in to see what was up. $2k later I'm knee deep in parts.

Ok so five guys haven't made any payment arrangements at all and we are having problems with two other's CC clearing.

I must place the Purchase Order tomorrow so the five will be cut off if no arrangements have been made, and the other two you have little time to contact us for corrections.
