I am left scrambling for new supplies of parts.
Element is in for some hard times. I wish them well, they were good to deal with and honest. Their product line was improving by leaps and bounds.
I hope they can get out of this bind they are in.
Does anyone with China contact have any more info on this? I tried google but this story is not public yet. I bring it first to ASC!
No worries mate, they had trouble but they will be back soon. I have been in contact with their boss almost daily bases. They definitely got trouble from the Gun making plans and i think was a mistake on their part, i think some local police found out of it and tried to pull some money from them, very common here. i knew it since it happened end of January but dont want to spread panic when there is none, they will be back soon. No worries.
