Default New Market Niche for RAS47?

NO offense to APEX--a first-rate company; I've bought good stuff from them--but this bears comment. Were these rifles that were too bad for even Century to release??

They must know people will throw away the front trunnions if they're saying it only counts as one part towards 922r.

I had this discussion on Fbook with a Century rep. He told me that those parts APEX has were test guns or R&D guns.....so I asked him how many "test" guns did you guys need/make???

....He didn't really answer me...

...those ras47's are junk and they know it (birdie) they are destroying the remaining lots...but we'll just call them "test" guns...lol

Thanks, Mel...I knew there was a story, but didn't really expect to see it.

How much did they cost?

I believe the barrel journal diameters are not standard AKM. Only good for use as a replacement barrel on a RAS 47.

I can't see why anyone that owns a RAS 47 would want a replacement barrel. I mean, a RAS 47 isn't likely to ever need a new barrel, it'll break before the barrel wears out.

So who is buying them?

tRASh-47 owners are probably too stupid to realize any of the facts you pointed out
