Group Buy Warning


Recommended Posts

I know I'm pretty new to the forum, and I don't know if there are a lot of group buys that go on here, but I figured I'd post this just in case.


I'm also a member northeastshooters.com. Recently a certain agency has taken interest in the group buys and in one member in particular. This member has had to retain a lawyer because of this.

I have not heard exactly what the issue is. Hopefully they just want to make sure no one is bypassing the system. Whenever a group buy is done for a lower someone collects the money, sends it to the vendor/manufacturer, and the vendor/manufacturer sends the lower to a FFL for them to handle the transfer.

Sounds like a non-FFL was playing middleman... And taking more involvement than he should've.

I only group buy through FFL's.



Should only the FFL handle the money and actually place the order? When I order my .308 lower I placed the order with the manufacturer and they shipped it to the FFL. The group buys seem to work the same way, only on a larger scale. The middle man never receives the lowers.
