Default Pre-orders and stupidity

I'm sorry, I'm laughing my ass off.


If you do a pre-order and you don't take a deposit to at least cover your costs, you are a fool.

If you take people's word and not their money and they stiff you, then you are also a fool...


If there is not enough interested to move forward, then it doesn't happen.

I see no 'risk'. No one was a hero.

XMT is not stupid.

Unless he didn't cover his costs on the preorder.

I want one of his new foregrips, but I will wait until he panics next time and drops the price.


This shit has been going on for years. My friend Roguefactor used to discuss it all the time with me. He was 100000% correct.


Good luck on the next pre-orders.

I hope that this is not the end of all aftermarket mag parts.

I think it's in the foregrip thread, but Allen (GH) also pointed out the fact that XMT takes nearly a year to complete production after the pre-order is closed.

Of course a few people are going to lose interest. Especially in the paintball community, no one has that level of patience once they start a project.

Exactly, take a year to complete a project, of course interest will wane,

I sold my spot and bought a body later on from an individual for 250.

Plus, they are unfinished. After speaking to my anno friends, these things need $80-100 of polishing. So to get a complete product add another $150 to the total.

It took me 3 years to get boards out to owners.

But your communication was good and it was a product people needed in some cases. The next hot body concept is great until the next hot body concept comes out or the idea of what is hot changes.
