Im interested in the long one but need to see 223 reports because I may still cancel if it doesnt perform. Should I prepay here, anyway? What happens with cancellations?

Rich,

how long does this Group Buy last? A lot of us are still in limbo about when / if we are getting our rifles...

Lee Majors, I'd eventually like to get an 18" or 20" barrel when they become available so I'm inclined to buy your long version but would it be too long to work in the interim with the 16" barrel I have now?

What's with the C-21 and 717?

I am definitely interested in both a short and a long, but I would like to see the answers to at least the two prior questions since I am pretty much in the same situation.

That is all.

See attached images for examples of size and scale.
If you see a flash hider hiding under the handguard, then yes, the long handguard will likely sustain damage by the 16.5 barrel.

LeeMajors, I am interested in a short rail. I am not a FaceBook user, so how would I go about placing the $50 deposit? Just send the funds through my PayPal account with a reference to hand guard deposit?

The group buy will last until production is done and we have to pay for them.

Once we have to pay for them, the group buy ends and retail pricing is in effect.

This simply helps offset our cash outlay to cover production, so we reward people who help us do that by offering a substantial discount.

Thank you,

We don't do cancellations.  Pre-orders with discounts give a $50 deposit now and balance in full when we pay the machinist and they are on our way to us.

The whole point is to help offset how much we have to outlay with pre-orders at a substantial discount.  Does us no good to have to refund orders.  I'd prefer if you aren't sure you want one, please wait until you have the rifle.  You will lose the discount, but then there won't be an issue of returns and refunds.

I run this business by myself as far as design and ordering and shipping goes, so it's just too hard to chase a moving target with cancellable orders.  Thanks,

Yes, but I also believe he was asking what happens if he pre-orders a rail then cancels his MDR order and wants to also cancel this rail order.

If not, I misunderstood where he was going asking me about my cancellation policy...?

Received, thanks! 

That puts us at 48.  Should be well over 50 by the time we get these back in a month or so.

MDR Handguard is officially FINISHED!  Took us nearly 9 months - longest project we've ever done, but she's good to go.  All lines up perfectly.  Pictured with OSS Suppressor and Magpul M-Lok rails.  Pre-orders open tomorrow. 

Retail pricing:  $299 plus shipping.

Pre-order pricing:  $249 shipped for >50 orders (minimum threshold to start production).  $239 shipped for >100 orders.  $219 shipped for >150 orders. 

We will leave pre-orders open for 30 days.  Payment in full not required. 20% deposit to hold your spot, refunded if we don't meet our 50 qty minimum, which I have no doubt we will.  Not our first rodeo. 

$50 via PP to Lear70@gmail.com - will show up as LIFe Industries, LLC on your payment receipt and a post here holds your spot.  I'll keep a count going.

1.  Christian B - Paid in Full
2.  Frederick B - $50 deposit

Do note that the artwork above represents an MDR with the older HX-Magnum design at something like 8.36" from the muzzle. Just making sure you guys know which specific OSS is mounted on the MDR mockup.

Hello all,

MDR aluminum handguard is in final production.  Expecting machining to be done in 10 days and they're heading to anodizing. 

Those who have pre-ordered, please get your balance payments in. 

Unfortunately Paypal has discovered me as a firearms accessory business and locked my account.  You can make payments by VISA or MC on our website at www.lifeindustries.net  We also take Venmo and Paypal Pay

For those wanting to get in on pre-order, you have until Friday to do so, then we're cutting off pre-orders, which is a 20% discount and free shipping.

Both short (same as factory length standard handguard) and long (4" longer for dedicated suppressor shooting like me) are available for the same price.  Long will be $20 more than short when we go to retail, so almost 30% off for you folks.

Thank you.

Wait you are making both the short and long now? I thought you were only looking for short preorders now???

That's my fault for not getting on here sooner and updating that we made the decision to do both, as we had about 1/3 of the pre-orders really wanting the longer version.

We're making both long and short, and black and FDE/tan as well.  

Cerakote adds $30.  Someone else does that so we can't discount it but I can offer long for the same price as short during pre-order only.  You'll see that on the website in the available options.

No, not yet, because they aren't machined yet.  That's why we're offering pre-ordering discounts.

It's the same shape and design as the short model, simply 4 inches longer to cover the first few inches of the suppressor so you can hold the rifle further out for more stability.  

The last picture posted by Zeiram above shows what it will look like in the "long" version.
