Default SLR104FR Supply Diminishing

Unfortunately due to the military obligations that Arsenal has and the lack of rifles being imported, the US supply is getting scarce. Going over the numbers we expect for the SLR104FR rifles to be unavailable in about a three to four month time frame. The projections of more being imported is not too heartwarming either. From what I've been told we are looking at being years away from any more arriving in country.

Alright, well looking at the numbers now it looks like we over estimated how long our supply would last us. With the announcement from Arsenal last week many people decided to pick one up and our inventory has significantly decreased. At this rate I would not be surprised if we run out by next week. I say this not to drive sales as these are going to naturally run their course. I just thought that I would share this information with members of the Files that may be contemplating picking one up. I'm sure that there are other shops with some in stock but I wouldn't expect that to last long either.

I would recommend doing it soon. We have a about 20 of the tan models left available as of this message and a very limited quantity of the black model SLR104-31 and a couple with the quad rail SLR104-36. We will not be getting any more shipments for a long time.

Purchased a SLR 104-31 FL literally two days before the "announcement". Must be AK psychic. Or psychotic.

Good stuff. Congrats on a great gun. All of the guys in the shop have picked one up as well. We expect them to sell out over the weekend or earlier. You were just in time.

Ordered mine today. Excellent experience for the first time doing business with K-VAR. Couldn't be happier and so stoked I lucked out getting one. Can't wait to get it.

SLR104 FR availability update:

SLR104-31: 5 left 702-368-8880 (took these offline, left these last few for AK Files only), will be sole out today I am sure.

We still have a small handful of the desert tan models and models with quad rail.

And that will be it for a while

Smile It's here!

Just picked up my SLR 104-31 (FL) from the dealer. Everything looks great. Excellent customer service from K-Var, that was quick! Now I can stop having nightmares about UPS accidentally running over it.
