I thought I read that there was going to be some new info for about either MSAR (the company) or the MSAR e4/stg (Rifle) (possibly new components, rifles, etc...) coming out at the bullpup shoot.


Did I miss it?


Or did I miss-read it?


Thanks

They have officially declared bankruptcy and officially no longer have any production facilities in NC, where their FFL was located.

That's what i am wondering "unofficial"


What I was hoping to here was something like (Just my want list)

Ratworx USA to make

MSAR in 5.56 (E4 style)

with 16" 1 in 8 twist, 5r rifling, Wylde chamber, 1/2 x 28 threads, SS or melonite coated (standard)

Ratworx bolt (standard)

HTM 2020 New trigger pack (standard)

Manticore Talon Scope mount (30mm) (Standard)

Manticore Talon Charging handle (standard)

All for under .................................wait for it...................................................$1300

Also Ratworx/Manticor/2020/cmmg/etc....................made 22lr adapter for $200, and 6.8 spc conversion offered once again

as well as being able to import that dang handguard from Europe that lets you hold the and rest the MSAR more like a normal rifle


This would really make my day

But knowing my luck I will walk around like for a while until I win the lottery

The price point may be a bit low, but short of the melonite in the barrel, the horizontal handguard, and the 22lr kit you can pretty much make that happen today!

I will say I appreciate the vote of confidence and it is good to hear people wanting "custom builds" like that, I'll pass the word along to some movers and shakers.

Is MSAR still reorganizing or did it go the way of Solarindra and the Do Do Bird ?

Well, I think the Bullpup shoot was pretty well done and popular even though it's only in its second year. So that I think gives an indication at least that the MSAR was a very popular non-AR rifle. I mean when you look at the General Firearm Discussion board or just "family photos" of collections now days your chances of seeing an MSAR mixed in with a bunch of AR's are pretty good. So, if MSAR had a failing it was in the management of their business not that they didn't have a popular product.

If there is a good demand for something somebody somewhere is going to meet that demand with a supply.

You have an excellent understanding of the situation on all points.
