Sig and IWI both dropped incredibly cool releases recently and while I tried for both… I failed.
I only managed an order for the SIG Scorpion AXG P320, which are luckily not number limited just time frame. The IWI Galil ACE in 5.45×39 (an ammo that you can occasionally find and earthbound prices) however were all gone by the time I hit the interwebz and sent my purchase requests.
Now, that means I missed the ACE… but I, as you may recall, am a FFL/SOT. You all have the open market of places like GunBroker where I am certain several will float around. A few dealers probably snagged them too although the largest I knew, Copper Custom, is out of stock.
Rumor is that they sold out in less than 180 minutes from announcement or about 1 gun per 20 seconds. If you know the speed of a 4473 that is impressive (not that any have been 4473’d out yet, most are probably on the brown trucks of happiness)
But I did manage the AXG!
Considering I have plenty of rifles and no 5.45 ammo in my stash but my last P320 (the excellent XCompact variant) was borrowed to play model, I was in greater need of the AXG.
But it’s not always about need… so may the acquisition odds be ever in your favor!
