I'm sure Jack has some good things in store for 2013. I don't think anyone will be disappointed..
Maybe people would buy higher end pumps because they'd be saving on paint. Idk I see a few mvp's around here. Mostly like cheaper pumps though

I hope he will still have parts for the invasion. I emailed him about a new ram body, ram, and bolt, and he told me he didn't have any ram bodies, and I would need to reuse the pin in my current bolt. Kinda ridiculous imo but hopefully when the gun comes back it'll shoot.

I can still fix every gun I have ever made!
There is no reason that someone would need to have a different ram body - unless they take their ram body out, grab it with a pair of channel locks and scar up the body. Even then I fixed it for you - put in a new Rammer, and didn't charge you much.
As to bolt pins - they're stainless steel and take quite awhile to make. I also buy in smaller quantities so again expensive.
I try to keep costs down. So stocking expensive parts that may never get sold isn't a good way to do that. Players won't need ram bodies, and few would ever need a bolt pin. Maybe you lose the spring and ball bearing, but the pin - not so many will need that.
If I charged what I should for a bolt pin I would get $20 plus shipping, but that - to me - seems like players would think I'm taking advantage of them. So I charge a bit less and then only sell them when I have too.
Same as for cars. A $25,000 car is $100,000 if you bought the pieces and had them put together by a shop.

If you sent in the gun in you would know it shoots - but you wouldn't pay to have the gun repaired - just sent the ram body.

Maybe because these guns are cheaper this is happening when it hasn't before, but someone else cut up their feedneck ring and then sold the gun and now it has resold a couple of times. I have tried to get him a new ring - but it has to be made as a one of one. That feedneck ring is so solid it would never break - just like the ram body would not need to be replaced. But you can break it if you try.

Players if you are going to buy broken guns check with me first on the cost to fix them. These are tough, low maintenance guns that need next to nothing, I didn't stock a bunch of parts that I would have to throw away in 5 years. Can't do that and make a top performing gun that sells it $499

I didn't want to send the whole gun because I knew the problem was with ram body/ram due to my inability at getting the ram out. But it was mostly because I couldn't afford to send the whole gun in and have it completely fixed. Shipping was the major killer, sucks to live in Canada.

Shipping prices in Canada have gone up quite a bit. The only think you can do to get the cost down is ship it by post, then it's not too bad. Of course it will take longer as well.

When you get it back take good care of it and it'll always work.

Player, I didn't say - or mean to infer - that there was anything wrong with just sending in a part. Only mentioned it because (to me) it sounded like you were doubting the quality of the guns. That just isn't right.

I'm not doubting the quality of the gat. I only want more parts available so that if something goes wrong I will have the option to ship the parts here instead of shipping and waiting for the gun/part to come back. I don't mind the gun, I mean I;m not going to lie and say it's the best gun I've ever shot, but it's not bad and quite the bang for the buck. Of course that's my opinion though, others may vary
