    Gaijin, I have a wife who knows how to budget and loves guns.

    So SCAR 17S is now out. Sadly these are not mine: http://fnforum.net/scarzilla-has-ret...et-t21828.html

    I ordered it from policeguns.com, who takes a while to get the various models in stock. I just looked again now though, and they've got a desert tan model available now. I'm having trouble deciding if that would look good with the black receiver or if I should just wait for the original black one to come in.

    Clyde Armory is my local shop... let me know what you are looking for and if you need any help.

    The Mod 1 EBR/M39 they have in stock now is more of a copper color.

    I love Clydes, the new store is awesome. Beats the hell out of Franklins and Bullseye.

    Well, I searched and found some of your old posts about the Mod 1. Is the one they have, the same as your Mod 1 or is it a different color setup? ie. would you recommend it? or does the color look too funky?

    This might be your Navy SEAL version, which is grey I think.

    Hey, Hood!

    Whatever happened with the AK you returned? Did you get a replacement?

    Let me first say, Lancaster needs to be put out of business. Let me also say that the Feds should swoop in, shut them down, but not before finding my serial number and shipping it back to me in a fixed state. It's been about 3-4 months now and they still have it. Phone calls to them are just an endless stream of lies. They'll even give you a tracking number that's bogus, then 2-3 calls later, they'll say it never shipped. What's even worse, is that my local shop recently got some ATI ones in (we can't have Arsenal ones here, no AWB versions) that are rather nice. What's also sad is that Lancaster, aside from Arsenal, probably makes the finest looking US put together AKs around. The fit and finish is really stellar.

    Damn, that really sucks. I have heard nothing but negatives, regarding Lancaster's reputation for honesty/ethical business pratices/customer service. i know we can't always believe what we read on the net, but your story confirms what I've heard from others.

    Best of luck with that, Hood.

    That is my extremely rare 1st generation Mod 1 stock... one of eleven released to the public.
    I replaced the 18" action with a 22" Crazy Horse action to create the CH M21A5 EBR.





    I think Clyde's has a similar color in stock and I know they have the copper color pictured below on the shelf.

    I think it's 6 right now, but I have one unaltered Poly Tech up for sale to help fund another SEI build.

    Not yet, but I have placed my order with Rich for a 762BD.
    I'll post pictures and details when it happens.
