So, Tooling times have slipped....currently looking for a new American based manufacturer so I can meed the attached timeline. Not too concerned as the few I spoke with today had a 4-5 week build time so I have some cushion room.
On the plus side, I have found some resources for assembly and drop shipping should I need it. Eventually I would love for this not to be run out of my basement but have my own space or perhaps just have it all drop shipped and I don't have to do anything, but that comes with more costs and I have the goal to keep the cost of goods low so I can keep the retail price low because I look forward to spending $130 on a magazine loader - said no one ever.
Unless a new development arises I would consider the attached timeline to still be valid.
