Default Kalashnikov USA vityaz clone almost here?

Sorry if this is the wrong thread. Well this dead horse apparently is getting a few more kicks. TFB recently posted up a report of speaking with Kalash usa at this year's shot show and that they purportedly stated that the vityaz is coming this year by the end of the year. (Que eye rolls) I don't know if they gave a slated timeframe when they first unveiled them but if they did it was probably that same answer. so how many of you think it's finally coming and how many think this is just more hog wash? I personally hope it's true but am not expecting Jack from them. I have not seen any reports outside of tfb claiming that they said it's coming (and i know tfb has been quick to post vaporware). So if anyone has seen anything else please post it up.

Don't hold your breath. At this point their word is about as good as a 3 dollar hooker.

Exactly what I figured. From both K USA and tfb.... mainly hoping someone here had some boots on the ground input with this claim from shot.

I dont remember where I saw it but someone posted photos showing the barrel was galled up when pressed in. Show prototypes or not that not confidence inspiring after all the run around over the last few years with these.

That would be @Lynndons on Instagram. Also shows a gas tube lever pin that's cracked.

Cycle through the photos above. So much for the article's author having inspected every example on the floor or whatever. If this is KUSA's best, I'm not buying.

Never. They're so full of shit. They're that company that can make a great looking website but fails to deliver anything. God forbid you pre-order anything from them based on their reputation so far of blowing smoke up everyone's asses

Yes! I knew it was on IG i just couldn't remember whos feed it was on.

The 17 display guns had a shit ton of issues, and the fact they couldn't get another 3 guns assembled correctly in 361 days for 2018 without fucking the barrel up doens't give me a warm fuzzy feeling

I'll go for a HMG STG44 first

That gun is a parts build.. They are making a duplicate of that with new parts. Last I checked they are not taking money down so they are not ripoffs they are just slow.

Last I checked atlantic has their shotguns in stock.

Also the same thieves who stole the Kalashnikov Concern name because of sanctions and have convinced the ignorant they are with the original company, not directly but through their marketing.

Fuck them.

I still won't support them even if they finally do make a product besides 12 gauge shotguns just by the nature of who they are and what they represent.

No disagreeing, but i wonder if its possible that they are indeed Kalashnikov brand but because of sanctions they cannot say so.

It appears that Kalashnikov USA is under investigation.

Yeah, most of our distributors carried KUSA for a hot minute, but have since dropped them...

Kinda sucks, because their 12g's were way nicer than the SDS Chinerstani imports...
