Korea claims their remaining inventory was purchased and they plan to sell them. Century Arms had a deal in place to buy the lot a few years back but the deal got squashed by the obama admin with an import ban.
Ahh that makes sense. I assumed that Uncle Sugar loaned everyone free rifles. Thanks for the info.
