Nothing is guaranteed,I spent 1-2 hours a day for a week and a half filling,sanding,blending and grinding on my stock case with the hydro nose cone making it pointy and sharp like a Imco so other then less drag from the Imco shorty or max shorty I'm not sure there is as much to gain as you normally would,Smitty

Nothing's changed. I don't run IMCO parts.


Not to be confrontational... If you didn't, want to be confrontational, you would have emailed or called
..... but was there a change of heart about their product?

No


Do you now endorse it since you are trying to put together a deal for some?

No I don't. I was contacted about helping find the best price. I didn't solicitate the business nor initiate the idea of a group buy.

I appriciate the fact that you are always trying to get everyone a good price and save us some bucks but I feel somewhat sceptical buying a product from some one who has basically said it wasn't worth owning.

As always, you're free to buy [or not] anywhere you please. I'm hopeful someone else steps up with the best pricing on IMCO so I'm not involved.
That should answers your questions. If not, I have a toll free number. Feel free to give me a call.

Fred

This post sure sounds like your soliciting your services for a product you don't offer or recommend...

Good gosh brother, buy from whoever you'd like.

But I tell ya what, I'll make it simple for you and your good buddy Don.

I won't participate in pricing or selling IMCO products.

I did see that he posted a price on those lowers but I do believe he is an authorized Imco dealer.

If you didn't, want to be confrontational, you would have emailed or called

Why would I email or call you? You posted on a public forum about your dislike for the product and you posted on a public forum that you can get the best price for a product you don't sell. It's nice to see that on any thread about anything for sale or any marine product you'll be the first vendor to mention your trinkets. Any post in the advertisers section has to be topped by a Fred post. The swap section also has to bombarded by your products even though it's not supposed to be for the vendors. Face it Fred, your a post whore extrodinare.....

No I don't. I was contacted about helping find the best price. I didn't solicitate the business nor initiate the idea of a group buy.

I guess your post where you said
"Have whoever is handling the group purchase give me a call. I haven't seen anything posted that I can't beat on a group purchase.

Fred" ,
is you being contacted to get the "best" price. I was thinking about buying some milk later from the local grocery store, can you beat the price per gallon on that too? I know it's not one of the trinkets on your website but I figure you haven't made your quota today on sales and I would give you the oppertunity to beat the price.

As always, you're free to buy [or not] anywhere you please. I'm hopeful someone else steps up with the best pricing on IMCO so I'm not involved.

Thanks for letting me know I can spend my money where I like on products I like. It's good to know free-enterprise is still in play, even on OSO. I think someone offered the "best" price so far on Imco products.

I think I'll eat at Wendy's the rest of the week...........

Thank's for proving my point on your intent to be confrontational.

Enjoy lunch.

Just something else to think about, not to mention they're double the cost of the IMCO's.


To straighten out any confusion,the bravo shop lower case,max machine worx lower case,Imco lower case,sportmaster lower case and stock bravo case ALL bolt to the same exact upper bravo,bravo xr,bravo x etc so the same spacers will work on ANY of them.

I said not to quote me, but thanks for the info...
