Any interest in Zombie Squad lowers? (Poll added)

Post by gun toting monkeyboy » Thu Jan 05, 2012 8:26 pm

So, is there any interest in doing a batch of AR 15 lowers with the Zombie Squad logo? Who would we talk to on here about it? Has anybody done a batch of these before? I figured that the price of lowers is so low right now, we might be able to get together a decent group buy on them, and still keep the price to something reasonable with a donation to ZS included in the price. Let me know what you guys think.

We've done 2 batches before. I have a spare one from the last batch. (search to find it). My upper is paint-filled and has never been mounted.

The last few group buys have been so clusterfucked (in terms of coordination, not necessarily product) that I dont think anyone wants to do another one any time soon.

Have at it. Just don't give people a choice in the matter. Design a lower, get a test copy, then tell people the price.
Thanks Anianna!

Here's the process for a ZS lower:

1. pick a vendor
2. Email trademark @ zombiehunters.org and request permission for a license to use the logo
3. get a test lower made
4. take pictures of test lower and take orders.

We could do it on psa lowers. I know where they get theirs laser engraved. A ZS logo should be about $20-30. It's the same place I got mine engraved. Let me know.

I want a ZS lower with my badge number on it.
These will be completely stripped lowers right?

If they have been done before and it didn't work out, I am not going to waste time flogging a dead (undead?) horse. No point. I know that when we have done them for Calguns.net, we went with Kaiser/JD Machine. But I know there are also other makers out there that can do the same thing for the same price or less. There is also Quentin Defense, who makes a billet lower that is interesting as well.

I wasn't able to get in on a group buy in the past. I'd be down for one most likely this time.

A simple ZS logo with the box around it on the magwell and safe/semi or safe/fire for the selector switch. Easy enough for me, and if you try this and are able to put ZS badge numbers on them as either the s/n or just engraved somewhere, that may be the last bit of motivation I need to fill out an application and actually become a paying member here lol (I should anyway, I've been dropping the ball bigtime on that)

Interested. The badge number as the s/n is a nice idea.

And what JC highlighted from crypto's hand. I'm betting that plenty of folks would be interested, but seeing what it will look like will be the biggest seller.

Don't get too excited. I have a feeling the thread is going to get locked pretty fast and it won't come up again probably.

I'm not sure why this would be locked. There is obviously a lot of interest in a group buy for ZS marked lowers.
Don't confuse a belligerent and aggressive attitude with the strength, training, and conditioning needed to prevail in a fight. How do you know you have the Will To Win, if you don't even have the will to train?
