FBM still in business?

My dealer tried to order FBM Viking frames from them - no response. Are they still in business?

That can't be right, because I bought a Hooker feedneck directly from the site last summer. They even annoed it for me. I called them as well. And when I started a list for who did laser engraving, I got a PM from someone with them as well. Plus, their site has changed, like in the last couple of months or so, to let everyone know that they are not taking custom work right now, which last November, it said nothing of the sort.

FBM is still in business. They were bought by another group of paintballers who are now operating the business. Unfortunately, they are still pretty slow and often unresponsive.

I ordered a pair of feednecks from them and they took like 5 months to get. It is unfortunate because they have some great products and just can't meet their demand.

You should call them directly. My brother bought a feedneck from them only a couple weeks ago

The guy on ebay selling the Viking frames said he bought or is selling what FBM had left of Viking frames.

All I know is when they got bought out they sent my gun back without anno and said they were closing down the bussiness. That was early last year.
Just my 2 cents. -Bill
