I'm actually almost never online, sometimes I post from my phone like earlier, lol.

there is no exact date since there is no exact "batch", I work on one gun at a time right now and it's pretty much just me right now, since we are packing up the shop.... IE shutting down temporarily during the move, and there is no exact schedule (other than the deadline that we are out of the existing shop by March 15th, unless something goes majorly wrong securing the new location).

That being said, I'm working on the nearly finished retros first, in particular the ones which are already anodized and should have been finished and shipped a month ago. Once those are done I'll be working on another dozen of them, and the accessories, lots of anodizing needs to be done first though. Time and money are very tight, it's been a tough couple months so far this year... finished orders will begin to ship more frequently in the next couple months for sure.

To be clear: we are at least 3 months behind schedule for the new stuff, and I'm trying to keep it from slipping any further, but it's difficult. I just started a new day job this week since the last one was becoming a problem (****ty boss), tougher transit situation but a better workplace now (AND cool machines! Mazak Integrex's!). I had paid for plans to do a snowboarding trip with all my friends this weekend but decided to out for shop time at Avratech, will get as much done as I can.

Setbacks happen, and I'm glad to hear it hasn't hurt your person making you disappear. I understand you've been set back a great deal, throw us tidbits when you can ! I'm getting more excited for my first retro!

Yeah I know, first I thought I'd have one to play Nationals late January, but it got pushed back, which sucked but was fine with it, now the next Tourney coming up in April I was really excited to play with it in...and can't...which sucks, just loved shooting my old one, shouldn't have sold it until I had a new one in my hands, but there wasn't any Tourneys from the time I sold it to the time I thought I'd be getting it, so it wasn't a big deal.

Kinda why I said I might need to pick up a used one, I like shooting them that much lol. Can't wait till it is done and gets sent to the Ton's. Hopefully I'll have it before the following Tourney after April.

New disclaimer specifically for MCB members: Please think twice before selling your Retro 7, they are limited production and you may not be able to get another one quickly or easily

PS another reason to re-consider selling: I mean it when I say limited... I will be ceasing production after I run out of frames, so their value can only go up... selling for 600 bucks is low-balling yourself.
