    Is it the best? That is yet to been seen. I was promised April delivery, than June, than August.... and now December.

    I had a Merkel 303ET custom made couple of years ago. I took Merkel only 10 weeks to delivery it and I had to pay only fraction of the total cost in advance.

    RBLs were not a huge success and had to be discontinued by CSME. I see them at gun shows for sale less than people paid for it. What concerns me the most is the business that asks full payment in advance and can't deliver on time and can't even provide delivery estimate correctly. A 10 is being developed with consumer financing - take advance orders from consumers and use that money as financing to develop the product.
    I will share a story with you all. I ordered some furniture from Costco. The expected delivery for two weeks. Costco took my order but did not charge my card. The furniture was not delivered after two weeks, no charge was made to my card. Costco sent me $100 gift card and a letter of apology 10% discount towards the order if I want to keep the order. All of these incentives were offered without any money taken from credit card. That is what we call good business.

    I ordered an a-10 last October. Paid in full. I called them last week and they are still working on Sept. orders. I don't expect to get it until Oct. I also would like to hear imput from someone who has gotten theirs. Mike

    That is what I am trying to figure out. Did anyone receive the run from CSME or we are just given run arounds.

    I don't have all the facts, just what I heard from a source in the trade, Beretta is putting some legal issues over this hybrid (SO sidelock on a 682 frame) gun, until this matter is settled, we might not see A10 in consumer's hand for awhile.

    Again, this is just what I been told, I don't have any other source to verify it at this time.

    CSMC is not a company that tells you all the facts, not even where most of the guns were actually made, so don't expect to find out much from them.

    I spoke to couple suspect foreign sources in the trade, some just simply told me: "That's something I have legal obligation not to give you an answer."

    Thanks for the link Mike. Looks like there are quality issues with the gun. I am leaning towards cancelling my order.

    I called today to cancel the order and was told the "order is in process" and can't be cancelled. So, I asked in process mean you can tell me when will I receive the gun. If it is in process, you should know when it will be ready for shipment. The answer was we can't forecast date. The story does not match up and smells fishy....

    With all the stories that have been floating around on Galazan for many years, I wouldn't sleep well giving that outfit a deposit on anything.
