Just a note after getting a phone call from a friend pointing this thread out to me as I was riving home from work and reading Jasons remark above,
I sold no Lewis Guns to anyone nor did I accept payment from anyone except one of the Markus's across the pond. If the payment was not made in installments, I would not have accepted his payment. What I did do was help the project get done and front them here on the RPF for members. From the start this was made clear as I have no financial gain in the project but it has cost me money.
I have not recieved any emails or pm's from you Jason in a little while (until today which I replied to first thing when I got home then I read this thread) and from what I was told, John was handeling your LG and had spoken with you on the phone. Not passing the buck, just what I was told. Your LG is indeed finished, has been for sometime now. As per previous conversations via pm or email, the situation for me is I cant just pick something up and walk over to the post office at my work even though your LG is literaly 20 feet away from me. You know what we do for work so I trust you understand the situation.
For anyone else reading in, I am a lounge chair beta testor, lol.
Just had to chim in and speak my mind, sorry for your delay Jason. I know of three others awaiting shipment off the initial run, one in IL, two in the UK. I get emails and pm's daily asking for hyperfirm items which I have to politly deny and ask they reply back in a couple weeks. The LG project was not mine and I wont accept any new orders until the previous ones are shipped by John. It is frustraiting for me, trust me on that
As for John,
he has gone through some trying times both personaly and physicaly. I know of only one person who doesnt like him but thats out of spite, lol. He is the most generous person I honestly know. As for the dishonestly, I do know a couple girls but thats another story. John isnt out to take from anyone. In fact, he probly doesnt realize it but he has given away more than he has sold this year. Fund raisers, charity raffles/auctions, fan films... he has been there to help everytime he could yet never asks for anything in return to even cover cost.
I hope this can be worked out Jason, I emailed you my phone number again so call anytime. The only time I dont answer is if I am working, with the ladies or if its "Jet Beatle" (Sky High this, Sky High that, lol).
Jack Bauer is part of the crew, someone has to sweep the floors (I kid, I kid).

I haven't received my LG either - I was part of the first run also [and I am located in the US]... and while after all these months, I've been slowly but surely getting to the end of my rope - in all fairness, I have to say that both Rob and John have been reasonably good about keeping in contact w/ me and explaining their situation and the reasons for the delays, etc.
I've talked to both of them on the phone throughout the whole ordeal - and not only are they nice guys - they are also pretty cool guys, who know their stuff and do great work. I know, they will try their best to come through w/ my LG in the end... but, boy - it's getting harder and harder to be patient... especially w/ the year coming to a close soon... would be nice to have this whole thing resolved and done w/ before the new year and not take any unfinished business into the new one.
Nothing says x-mas like a freshly cast Lewis Gun under the tree.
