Apparently my joked has backfired. As of yesterday, Centerfire has 50 rifles for delivery. I called to see where I am at on the list. I ordered the 3rd week of January and she told me I am really high up on the list, might make it in the 50 they got if some people cancel or change their mind. Will be in the next 50 for sure.
I asked her how many they have on the list and she tought somewhere arouind 500. So, if you ordered in the 1st three weeks in January you should be getting a call soon!!

Two weeks ago at the Indy1500 show there was a seller with 6 of them NIB on his table for $499, and my local shop had 2 of them about a month ago plus the one I bought 3 weeks before that...

I called and left 3 messages for Pam over the last week, she is usually really good at getting back to me.......maybe just really busy. I just would like to know if I am on the list for the 50.

If you want one I wouldn't hesitate. The last time they had some when I called in to check and by the time I got an FFL copy faxed in they were out. These things go fast which was why I just gave up and bought a Polish Vector. However, it was $150 more. The Yugo is the best deal in an underfolder AK if you can get past the unlined barrel and the fact they are made by Century.

Have you sold all 50?




I reserved mine back in mid-January and did not make the cut this round. They also raised the cost to $425.00 regardless of whether or not you were on the list prior to the Feb. 20th deadline

So they are now going against their own post?? I quote Lois:
As of today, we still do not have the bill of lading from Century which means they aren't even on the truck in route to us. I know it's frustrating. Trouble is, there's not much Centerfire can do but wait. Century shipments are notorious for showing up on the last day of a month.

With that being said, I should also mention the price of these guns are going up across the board. Last week we received notice of a substantial price increase. We are honoring the $399.97 price for all orders that were placed before the price increase. Anyone ordering these guns in the last few days has been told the price will be increasing and we will call them with the new price once we know our costs. If I had to guess on the new price, $450.00 each.

Again, let me reiterate, unless you were told when ordering that the price will be increasing, you are locked in at the $399.97 price. If you call in to cancel your order and change your mind later, you'll be subject to the new price.

Anyone else get charged extra even though they were promised otherwise?
Link Posted: 4/17/2006 10:21:01 AM EST
Looks like CSI is charging everyone more (supposedly to cover their costs) even if they were promised the product at the price they took the orders.

I don't know about you guys but this will definately not be the first place I go to buy anything anymore.

Think they'd lower the prices for everyone on the backorder list if their costs went down?
Link Posted: 4/17/2006 1:54:17 PM EST
WoW,

Based on my experience with them, this doesn't surprise me one bit. Tell us the truth, are any of you really surprised with how this has gone? I'm just glad I didn't order one from them.

Good luck to all of you, I hope that it gets better. They should take better care of their customers.
Link Posted: 4/17/2006 3:26:01 PM EST
What's funny is that it looks like the current price from other dealers is $429. CSI now wants $425 because they don't want to take a loss? Does CSI really want us to believe all these dealers are going through the trouble of selling these things to make $4 per sale? Looks to me like CSI is still building a decent profit margin in there, even for those on the backorder list, unless dealers have a just a 1% profit margin on firearms.
