It’s a little bit early to be worrying about it yet but yes, I’m quite sure this will continue to happen. It’s a great service that APR provides for us here & I for one hope that it’s actually becoming somewhat of a tradition.

I believe that APR is experiencing the benefits of their good work through rapid growth & I’m sure the crew at the shop has pretty much been hammered with by the demands that brings as of late.

I bet if we sit back & wait patiently Robert will come out with his annual intro thread for this years group build event...
Dangit, now you’ve got me all excited with the anticipation! ����

I'm sure they will roll something out now that we are 22.5 hours into 2022!

I have to imagine that the continued scarcity and long lead times on components will play a major role in what gets offered, the options available, and certainly the deposit.

Thanks for bringing this up. It's a good question, and one I don't have an answer to yet. Its usually based around something new or different that hits the market combined with some significant cost savings wherever I can find it. I haven't seen anything really ground breaking this year and price increases have already hit, or will be coming on a lot of components this year. And, yes....lead times are going to stretch on a lot of things just like they did last year. I'd like to avoid those components if possible, but it will also limit our options.

If the past is any indication, we'll go through a whole bunch of cool ideas but ultimately end up at a lighter weight hunting rifle concept for most. I'll feel bad for a few folks who really wanted a chassis platform and throw in an option for that at the last minute(although there is a great option here this year). Haha. All of the options will be a great value, but will be priced much higher than the old Remington based builds we did years ago which will exclude a lot of folks from being able to participate. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out a good way around that yet. Anyway, that's a lot to go through just to end up at the same place we've ended up the last several years.

Knowing all of that......and knowing I have solid relationships and delivery schedules with Defiance, AG composites, Proof Research and Brux is coming on line quickly to fill the gaps Muller can't keep up with........does it just make more sense to offer a significant TBH discount on our existing production rifles this year? Those rifles already have a discount built into them, so a TBH deal on top of that would go even further. It would allow for multiple platform options and price points for everyone participating. Component delivery times and actual build times would be much more predictable and palatable as well.

I'd be interested to hear everyone's thoughts on that idea, or any other ideas on what ya'll would like to see.

Thanks for taking the time to reply and outline the info - I’d def be interested in hearing more about a TBH deal on your production rifles.

I think that is a wonderful idea that I probably wouldnít be able to turn down!

Hmm so will I build the 280AI I have been talking about for years but keep doing something else or will I do something else again.

Robert, Iíve been dying for one of your .22LR builds since you posted about them a year or so ago.

Discount on production rifles would probably be easiest this year and maybe next year components are back closer to normal lead times.

At the end of the day, itís your choice and we are all very lucky that youíve chosen to offer us any kind of discount like you have.

May be interested in a discounted build. Robert will that include a deal for a supplied action. I have a Remington 700 25-06 I have been thinking about building around. Of course keeping it a 25-06. Thoughts on that.

I am working on gathering the parts needed for a build I want to do and good golly is there a huge shortage. I called Defiance about ordering a action directly from them and was told they are running 50 weeks out. Yes 50.... FIVE ZERO.... WEEKS!!! Barrels are way out too. Its just nuts. A bet there will be a 2022 TBH deal but those that get in on it are gonna need a TON of patients. That being said I know Robert has amazing relationships with his suppliers and will get his stuff before us regular folks so that will help a ton. I will also say until I started down the rabbit hole of specking out my own build and gathering parts I didn't realize just how good of a deal these TBH specials are. I have been fortunate enough to partake in 2 of them and not till now do I realize the extreme savings these are.

I think that is a heck of an offer! I'm wanting an ultra light and compact 7-08 if you have one that fits the bill.
