I dont think these are selling as well as RTI hoped.
When the ad for these first hit SGN I was ready to buy. Then it took months before they were actually available.
I got excited all over again, I was ready to buy during the black friday sale. I just couldnt pull the trigger.
Started wondering if correct mags would ever show up (they did) and what they would cost. Figure I'd want 5, 4 to fill a mag pouch and one in the rifle. That's another 500, thought it would be more actually.
I like shoot'in from the bench and all, but got a feeling this would set in the safe.
I have several Polish ak's, and am interested in a Beryl also. I know there are alot more archers in country than vepr IV, but I know I'd shoot an Archer more.
Add the slr104's in the mix, there is currently some good stuff to buy.
I think the hard core RPK74M guys had to get one, but other than them, not many folks ready to bite.
just my take.
I will once kvar has another sale. I plan to grab a barrel assembly with all the goodies besides the bipod, I have an extra bolt already. I will save the barrel fo if it ever becomes a collector, or the 5.45 dries up and I can swap it back in. I am in no hurry as kvar has a lot of them in stock. Also I have many other projects
