ACR Stock Adapter Run #4 Commitment Thread

Like the title says, even though we're still working on our low mount adapters, we got our machinist back and have had quite a few people ask us for another batch of ACR FAL Stock adapters.

For those not familiar, this allows you to take your PARA configured FAL and add the ACR folding stock, which is pretty much the best modern stock that exists for the FAL, in terms of ergonomics, modern AR BUIS and optic cheek weld, fires well folded with no blocking of the ejection port in any extension length, FCG unobstructed, and much shorter in LOP when collapsed than any other option available for the FAL.

Pre-order priced at $139 which includes the adapter, the mounting bolt (ours is proprietary - shorter than anyone else's), and USPS Priority shipping anywhere in the U.S. We do not ship internationally.

We need 20 firm commitments to do the run. We will not take payments until we have 20 firm "I'll take its". Once we get that number, payments will be due immediately.

Once we go to machining, pre-orders are cut off and they will go to the website for retail pricing at $179.

Post here with how many you want and I'll start the list.

Ummm, I don't think so, KikoHawaii.

If you are who I think you are, you ordered a Bren 805 adapter and a wide foot mag release. Please confirm.

Because if so, you way overpaid for the adapter vs pre-run pricing, and I don't want to ship you something you don't want...

Roman0, I'll add you, thanks!

Yes, I did order the wrong adapter.
So, again I'll ask, is it possible to cancel that order?
And I'll just wait for the right adapter like the rest of the flock.
If it was already shipped, can I return it for a refund?

I sent you a response via PM, my wife grabbed the mail and sent all my packages today (Bren adapters and some other stuff).

When it gets there, please just return it to sender, and I've added you to the list above. Thanks,

Alright, FB add-ons put us at 13. 7 more to go.

Grab 'em while you can. These are going to be run on a 5-axis our machinist now has, plus soda blasting before anodizing is making our recent parts look better than ever.

It took us nearly a year to run another batch. After this may be even longer.

Yes sir, over 20. I'll let the machinist know and give everyone the slot time when I hear back.

Awesome, thanks all!

OK folks, I reached out to the machinist, and we're looking at late this week or early next week for our machining slot.

Please get your payments in by the end of the week.

Discreet, gift Paypal to Lear70@gmail.com

Once you've paid, please PM me here (or email me at that same address) with your name, mailing address, and email address (for tracking updates).

Updates as we have them, thanks!

It's not too late until machining is done and I have to pay him the balance. Already paid him the 50% deposit to reserve the machining slot.

Payment instructions are above.

Thanks!

If I understand this correctly, this run is NOT for a low mount adapter but for the original high mount adapter ?

That's correct. Low mount is still sitting here pending me figuring out a coating that doesn't leave the one adapter looking like it was 3D printed.

All the low adapter parts are here and work fine, just doesn't look as smooth as I'd prefer for retail sale.

High mounts are easier to knock out, existing machining file and jigs and such.

Alright folks, those of you who have not sent in payments need to get them in. Machining started this morning. It'll be done by the weekend and they'll be off to anodizing on Monday. That means I'll have to pay the machinist and those who have not paid me by the time I have to pay the machinist revert to retail pricing of $179.

For those who have their payments in, thank you, and here's a preview of machining, as always.

Half the pieces are done with the rotary (as of last night, probably getting close to being done today). He'll finish rotary op (90% of the machining) today, then over the weekend do the finish milling and profiling on the Haas, Soda blast on Monday, off to anodizing on Tuesday.

Adapters shipped day before yesterday, I'm expecting them here today for shipping.

If you've paid for yours, please make sure you sent me your mailing address and email address so I can get them labeled up.

For everyone else, you'll find them on the website once I get the list updated. Need to clean up the website and get better pictures on there.

Thanks!

Again... I don't have addresses for almost all of you.

PAYPAL DOES NOT SEND ADDRESSES ON GIFT PAYMENTS ANYMORE.

If you have not emailed me a SEPARATE email to Lear70@gmail.com with your mailing address AND your FALFiles user name so I can check off my list, you won't get an adapter.

Help me help you. Help ME... help YOU...

Please send me shipping info. They're here and ready to go!

Thanks,

Get them before they're gone. Once I move these and the low mounts, I'm probably out of the machining business permanently.

2 left, then we are sold out.

I'm getting out of the parts business, so when these are gone, they're gone.
