    Default How Long????

    Hello Gents,

    I have spoken with several manufacturers and distributors of AR kits. The common wisdom is that they will not have general stock of kits (or parts) for at least four to six months. The FFL's I deal with have said the same thing.

    Anybody want to chime in here?

    Lots of places aren't even accepting backorders.

    I'm switching to AK building. At least I can get parts

    If people or venders come to local gun shows with stuff, buy it there, if it's in front of your face and you have the funds you'll walk out the door with it.

    I just got in an AR15 stock assembly with spring plus, buffer and, an A4 top handle sight assembly. I waited two months for it to come in.

    But, they had the AK muzzel brakes in.

    An AK would be a bit easier to make up these days.

    VZ58's seem to have jumped a little less in price than AR's or AK's.
    It's all relative , but the Czech guns seem like the better deal right now.

    Czechpoint USA - distributor of Sa vz. 58 rifles and Sa vz. 61 Scorpions

    On firearms , Czechpoint pays the shipping & the dealer transfer fee.

    If anyone wants one of those Czech military style VZ58's, I'd suggest getting one ASAP, I heard they are going to stop selling them and only offer the sporter model at a certain date.

    What's the certain date?

    One way to find out...
    I could ask their US rep and the guy who does all of their warranty work ( such as it is , De-Tech seems to have super quality control) and post the results.

    Or , someone else could , they both have a net/forum presence.

    Or we can wait , and see if the new administration really is stupid enough to ban the import of Czech and Slovak guns and/or ammo while they have troops in A-stan.

    Idealistic change meets the real world.

    I ordered a lower parts kit from del ton a week before xmas, still havent heard anything from them. but thier website says 12-16 weeks. I should have ordered the upper at the same time, but didnt have the funds. Now I kind of wished I would have just bought AK kit and built it, at least I would have been done with it. jim
