It is with a great sense of pride (and similar sense of relief) that I introduce the long-awaited Ranger II Early Bird Program. Following this link (pre-order now closed) will take you to a dedicated page where you can enter your order.
The order window will be open for the month of October. At the end of the month, you will receive notice from the factory as to whether or not your order has been accepted and will be processed. All orders entered during October will not necessarily be accepted, as we expect more orders than there will be product to satisfy them. As I earlier indicated, we will prioritize acceptance and fulfillment of these orders based on the number of posts you’ve made to our Message Board. Admittedly, this is an imperfect/flawed measure of your “friendship” with the factory.
The EB allocation will be 250 pieces, and we will ship half of our production to satisfy these orders. The other half will be delivered to our “primary” customers, our distributor partners. We anticipate beginning production before the end of October and expect that for the foreseeable future, production will approximate 100 pieces/week, in which event all EB orders should be filled before Christmas – but, as we’re all aware, despite our best efforts, stuff happens. EB pieces will be identified with the serial # EBIIXXX. No custom serial numbers will be available.
We have met certain cost targets and are offering these (as well as later) pieces at MSRP $479 (plus $10 S&H for each piece). Each order can be for as many as two pieces. These guns will be chambered in.22WMRF. Each order can elect to have a second, LR cylinder included for $75. Each order will be secured by a credit card – which will not be charged until the order is shipped – or any other form of prepayment (check, money order, etc.). Before acceptance, each order must be accompanied by the FFL of the receiving dealer.
At the outset, all product will be of the shorter (1.5”) barrel length. In time, we anticipate offering 2.5” and 4.0” barrel lengths.
We thank you for your interest and your patience, not only throughout the protracted development period, but also as we attempt to satisfy EB orders, as well as afterwards.
