    LRB Receiver Group Buy Update

    First…I want to thank everyone who participated in this group buy, we really appreciate your support.

    In an attempt to expedite delivery, we incorporated the 46 M14BR receivers into our 100pc production run that was already in progress. All receivers are being processed together and all are completely machined. Some still need to be deburred, polished and inspected.

    I have 10 M14BR receivers (SN 05136 -05145) that have been inspected and are going to heat treat this Friday 05/07/2021 along with 39 LRB receivers. Remaining M14BR and LRB receivers are still at JV Precision waiting to be processed.

    Unfortunately, machine shop and heat treater are short staffed due to Covid-19. Not that their people are sick…unemployment insurance and Gov’t stimulus checks are too good to give up. They aren’t returning, and it is impossible to hire new people. God Bless America.

    I apologize for the delays (Hawk had nothing to do with it) and ask that everyone please have patience…this is not our norm. I will post updates here as we make progress. LOU

    I completely identify with your situation, it's happening all over the U.S. with a whole slew of unrelated manufactures who can't meet deadlines or productions quotes because of the lack of materials, or manpower shortages !

    They're experiencing the same delays. Just got 60 bolts back from heat treat...took 2 months. Unfortunately we need all of them for builds. On the up side...bolts are finally in production...sort of. LOU
