Default Zastava M90np

Merry Christmas Atlantic guys and girls..
Can you shed light on why the M90np in 5.56 was so short lived and if it may make a re appearance.. The $1000.00 plus dollar price on GB is just too much and I've been wishing I hadn't missed the boat.. I wrote Santa and was a good boy but I sincerely doubt he's going to pull it off..

556 / 223 AK rifles are just not popular enough to import them .

And yet you guys sold out your stock...

I hope you don't take that too critically. I'm just saying that it's not as if guns rot on the shelves, and that money spent on importing rifles that have a return made back in a matter of months is only slightly less useful than money made back in a matter of weeks.

I bought my brother one, but they've unfortunately gotten too pricey for me to get another for myself. Perhaps I'm bitter. Oh well, I'll keep my eye open for more affordable 5.56 mm NATO AKs in the future.

And yet it took 4 times as long to sell them , That is just it yes they eventually sell a year later .If you are running a business your are not going to produce or stock something that does not sell on a regular basis. The fact that it Eventually sold does not make it a good business decision . KVar was sitting on SLR 106 rifles that they imported in 2013 that is a a slow seller in that caliber.

That's like telling me there's no point in stocking up on 5.45 magazines when the 7.62 sells out more quickly. I understand that you have to move product to stay in business, but surely there's a balance where you can import more often than one time ever and then permanently sell out. At least consider another run in the future if there's demand? Sorry again if that comes off as rude, because I respect that you can run your business however you want.

In fact, building my own 5.56 AK has been an interesting adventure all on its own, and even if it's costing me nearly 100% more than if you guys were still selling, I get to use standard AK parts. So I win some and lose some. Such is life.
