    I just recieved a letter from my dealer that the rifle I ordered will not be sent because Calvary arms was raided by the ATF.I was waiting for months and the rifle was paid for in advance.I tried to get my money back but my dealer went to Colorado which seems suspicious to me.Has anyone heard if the raid was true?:mad:

    I had a hard time finding much; it's pretty quiet since the raid/media party. The Fox affiliate no longer has the story available appearently, but I found this:

    Interesting. The ATF says firearms violations, other rumors are money laundering and other blue collar crimes, but those are speculation only as far as I can find.

    There is a big thread on it over at AR15.com in the general discussion section. Warrant was sealed and they still don't know what they were looking for. Too much speculation at this point to say much. They are still in business though.

    Could order a lower still, well kinda, Part of the CavArms assistance plan over there was to get a huge order of lowers and help them out. Seems like it has been acouple of months now and still no lowers due to a Technicality. Hopefully they will produce them someday. Someday hopefully mine will roll up to my FFL's .

    It's a mess, from what I have been told there was some stupid money/bookkeeping going on, but nothing to warrant an F-troop raid......bunch of nazis.....

    Anyway, I did place an order through my FFL on one of those special lowers for the "fundraiser", even though I never really liked the plastic lowers - I did want to thumb my nose at the BATFE and help keep a manufacturer in business despite their best efforts to shut them down.

    Make no mistake - the ATF has been cracking down on dealers and manufacturers for the most stupid stuff to try and put them out of business. It's a form of "backdoor gun control"......

    I live just 20 miles from the place. What is totally amazing is they haven't been charged with anything thus far! This is weeks after the raid. What is even more amazing is people aren't screaming over this. They could do this, (and have), to anyone. Bill T.

    Assuming there wasn't a serious crime committed (probably forgot to dot a few i's cross a few t's, that sort of thing), the ATF's actions have seriously hurt business for this company I'm sure. I'm thinking that Cav Arms needs to file a lawsuit against them when all is over with.
