    Maybe some miscommunication but it's been around $3800 here. Give or take

    We don't know the final numbers until the importer allows me to announce it.

    All I know is that we are close to the finish line and I am in hope to show pictures soon of what we have and also make a video and see the final product.

    Would love to know what sort of groups you guys are able to get at 100 yards.

    Also just to clarify... these guns will be completed first before payment is requested. Correct?

    Getting more and more anxious as the finish line is getting closer, hopefully all works out well and we get them here soon.

    "Won't ship until its paid" - won't ship from where? The distributor?

    Since you have importers looking at these, now, how are you going to handle serving the first 100 buyers in this list? Where will we purchase the rifle from? I assume it will be a vendor in the USA? How do you see this working?

    Only natural to ask, but if the answers to these questions were available, we'd know them already.

    That said, I'd encourage everyone to be realistic about all of this going down as it was imagined in this thread. I know nothing about the specifics of the deal, but I do know a small foreign manufacturer typically has little or no leverage over prices or how retail sales are carried out in the US. Perhaps FEG can make satisfying this group deal a condition of the sale, but that'd be quite out of the ordinary. Keeping in mind that the importer is typically a distributor rather than retailer, the idea that FEG could get the company(ies) buying the rifles from the distributor to go through the hassle of floating a group deal seems just about impossible.

    The rifles will get here when they're ready and they'll cost whatever the retailer thinks the market will bear. Guaranteed to not please everyone, but we need to acknowledge reality and recognize that if this deal doesn't play out exactly (or remotely) like its been described here, no one's been lied to and it won't be anyone's "fault". It'll be whatever it is, recognizing that accomplishing the first import of new SVD-pattern rifles in 30+ years is a miracle (and the result of persistent, hard work) no matter how you slice it.

    One thing I do know about the deal is the enormous cost - beyond the considerable production expense - of getting every wee bit of the rifle certified as Hungarian-/EU-produced (rather than Russian) in order to pass Federal scrutiny. This additional layer of expense significantly increased the finished cost of the rifles; sadly unavoidable, but essential to getting them into the US.

    I never said it was gonna be easy.
    AZAK said is very true...but another factor in the equation also and I am not gonna blame people nor point fingers but another factor is other peoples politics are inter-mixed with it.

    Not gonna negate it.... but I am leaving this MEME up for people to look at....

    Do the "HD-18"s use an original SVD style trigger pack with safety sear, or a "Tiger" style without? That could be another problem.

    I know companies have even tried to import SVDs from Canada with an verifiable Gov't papertrail and didn't have any luck. I have always assumed that the BATF just didn't like the SVD due to the sear, but never made an official ruling.

    Ours is without the stupid safety sear but we worked something with the firing pin so it's not free floating it will be spring loaded.

    There will be a block to prevent insertion of the safety sear on the side.

    It's not that the ATF doesn't like it.
    It's the voluntary restrain from 1996.

    It says no SVD.

    Doesn't matter if it's in another country or whatnot.

    If its Russian made


    No dice..

    Others failed in that department..

    We will succeed because we are building it in Hungary.

    Ok, I committed earlier to one of these rifles with scope, but I am not seeing my name on the list.
