I have gotten some questions about mounting for the RAPTAR ES. These units will come with the "PIC RAIL ADAPTER" which is shown in this pic. It is the black pic rail section shown in the center of the pic. The RAPTAR unit itself screws down on to this pic rail adapter which can then be screwed on to any pic rail section, like on the 9 o'clock, 12 o'clock, or 6 o'clock. There is a full function pressure switch which can then be mounted farther to the rear to enable the shooter to fire the range button as needed.
There are also specific RAPTAR mounts made by Spuhr, Badger Ord. and Larue. Those mounts have the holes in them so the RAPTARs can screw down on to those mounts without using the PIC RAIL ADAPTER. But for some users, use of these dedicated mounts may not be optimal, hence the PIC RAIL ADAPTER is provided with the unit.
One further note, it is my understanding that these RAPTAR ES units we are getting do NOT come with the pouch shown in this pic. Hence I was suggesting a Condor EMT pouch in an earlier post back on page 1 of this thread, which sells for $20 on Amazon. It is exactly the same dimensions as the wilcox pouch and is available in the same multi-cam as shown in the pic.
Yesterday I sent out reminders to all committed buyers to send in their funds. 19 of 26 responded so far. Most said they had either already sent in their funds or would do so this week.
Two pulled out saying they could not get the funds in time. I wished them well.
One new person made a buy commit, so net loss of one commit (from 27 down to 26).
We have received funds from 6 people so far.
If anyone thinks they might want to buy a unit but have questions, please PM me and ask and I will try to answer.
03 people have yet to respond to reminder to send payment on 05/12
08 units are "payment received" status
I received ITAR forms from the supplier and will be sending those out to the buyers today as well as sending a second reminder to the 3 folks who have not responded yet. Buyers should complete the ITAR forms and email back to the supplier.
Thanks for participating, and please PM with any further questions.
Payment deadline is 24 May (I had said it was 25 May, but that is a Saturday).
I got a check, but I cannot match the real name on the check up with the hide handles. I sent a PM to the individual I think sent this check, so please check your PMs and respond if I asked you about a check I cannot match up. Thanks !!
26 commits (I removed 2 from the forecast who have been unresponsive)
23 units in "payment received" status (2 have said "funds have been sent" and another will pay making 26 total)
Payment deadline 24 May
Ship Date 4 June
More detail, on the ship date. All units tied to payments received on or before 20 May will ship on 4 June. We are allowing 7 days for paper instruments to clear. The batch I deposited today and will deposit tomorrow, should clear by 7 June at the latest (Monday 27 May is a bank holiday) ... so those units should ship 10 June (I will confirm with PRG tomorrow). Shipment of your unit is contingent upon you getting me your shipping address and sending in your ITAR form to PRG, via the email shown on the form.
Ok final price determination by PRG is complete. I will notify everyone who sent payment as to the number of units you will receive and when as well as the amount of any refund.
You need to make sure you have sent in the ITAR form.
PM me with any questions.
If anyone else wants in, PM me for the price. But for the remainder of this group buy, any new players must send funds by wire (to reduce turn around time). I can provide instructions for wiring if interested.
Everyone gets the same price. Only one final price, which I can share in PM.
