    Almost seems like they ran the plastics to get enough cash to buy the aluminum billets. If I were attached to that company, I would strongly encourage them to continue to offer both so they don't alienate their initial customer base.

    Secondly, I would point out that most people are aware of what offerings in the way of billet lowers cost. I do understand costs being directly related to volume, but for a non serial numbered component, it might be time to do an intro sale or price lowering event.

    I would like to point out that picture is horrific. The company needs to step up their game if they want to play and be taken serious in this field. Get legit pictures that make people want to buy the product. That is NOT a picture that makes people salivate and feel a need for the product. The sad part is that the company now has google images using that crappy pic whenever anyone types in a search. Is that what they want as their showpiece? They need to understand that they are making mistakes right now, and some of the most interesting and cool weapon ideas have failed in this market because of similar mistakes.

    The part you didn't quote explains it.

    You have no obligation to explain this for the obtuse but I don't see anything obviously wrong with the photo. It appears sharp and well lit, with a tasteful natural background instead of someone's kitchen table. From what you wrote I expected to see an out of focus "potato" quality photo with a hand in the frame holding up the subject, with half the detail hidden by poor lighting. You are a professional photographer and I would like to learn from you what makes the photo in question horrible. Sincerely.

    Fair enough, at first I thought you were just being argumentative. I can see you are not, its hard to tell a lot of the time on the internet.

    The lighting is substandard, it is harsh, the blacks aren't black, and while the pic is mostly in focus, the overall image is washed out. The front of the lower receiver is a great example of what I mean, but that is only a portion of the problem. The layout, the setup, the view all fall flat. I'm not going to post anything of mine to illustrate what would be better, because this isn't about me shooting pics for them or anyone else. However, look at the pictures of any larger company, and you will find professional images (typically). The reason is that a well shot picture creates a much better look, and with it, creates a much larger desire product purchase.

    With that being said, I do understand there are people who won't care. However, given a poor pic versus a good one, the differences are obvious. A high quality image showcases and demonstrates a high quality offering. A low quality pic tends to make a lower quality look.

    I am not by any stretch saying that the product is subpar, poor quality, or not worth purchasing. On the contrary, what I'm saying is that I don't feel the picture represents the overall quality of the item. I think the company is selling itself short and contaminating their own market.
