Akin to the nuclear powered automobile.

It takes more time for VLTOR to figure out how to make a Bren Ten pistol, than it takes Newport News Shipbuilding to construct a nuclear powered aircraft carrier!

I'm curious as well...

Someone posted about it on thehighroad.org on 10/28/10 about how he had already prepaid for 2 of them and was calling Vltor to find out whats going on.

"Today I talked to Vltor on the phone about the pistol. First I was told to contact the distributor for information. Well, I felt that that was a way to get me off the phone and leave them alone, so I persisted. Why not get the information from the source, them?? After a pause, while the nice lady on the phone talked to someone else, I was told they are not even working on the pistols."

The didn't show their Bren 10 at Shot 2011 or mention anything about it either right? Doesn't look good, doubt it will be any time soon if ever.

Vaporware.

I pre-ordered one Feb. of '10 on the first day you could do so. They were originally giving a release date of May. May came and went with no guns. They then gave a release date of July. July came and went with no guns. I canceled my order and got my money back, as did a lot of folks. I kept up a little over on the Bren Ten forums and found out they were giving a new release date of October or November. That was six months ago and still no guns. I would be surprised if they ever get released.

Are there not many of the originals? I can't recall ever seeing one in person, though that doesn't say much. The gun shops around here are....not very good, I'll say to be nice, and I don't really do the gun show thing so.....nope never. BD

The original company never made that many of them, maybe a few thousand from what I've heard.

They'll never make it to market.

If you want one, get a Tangfolio, but they can be hit or miss.

There's no lack of companies willing to make gear for the military, VLTOR simply chose the more lucrative contract. I don't blame them for it, but let's be honest, it was a money decision.

Well... I own 2 originals, and pre paid for 5 of the VLTOR Brens.... All I can say is I Ihave my money back, epic fail. I waited OVER A YEAR, and bailed on that mess.

No they are not rare. You have to know where to look and know who has them for sale.

If you understood how this whole thing was handled, and had an interest in the gun, you would understand...Obviously you do not.

Maybe they should have just stayed with military products instead of teasing something they had no intention of following through on and taking payment for. As someone else said, there are plenty of companies who make military gear.

It would be a different matter if they had of said "We make military equipment and have no time for the civilian market", but the took pre-orders and then never delivered. I think the military is more important than another 10MM (which I wanted), but taking money and never delivering is a bad business practice.

Throwing the military into this situationis just stupid. Obviously they let their mouths overload their a**es. They need to man up and handle this in a professional manner.
