    Yes as did several other well known firearms manufacturers in Canada, BUT they started with baby steps and grew. MD came onto the market from no-where with great claims and ridiculous timeframes that have never been met. Big difference!!

    How do you know this to be true?

    I think it was stated before by other dealers

    Well that's a bold move, I guess the dealers must have had quite a bit of confidence in MacDef. And it must have been a mutually beneficial arrangement.

    Macdef likely burned some of their relationships with how they handled themselves

    To be fair, their timeframes were not met, but the product is there. My set was early 200s, and outside of an initially stiff safety and a tight magwell (still functions with most mags), I have a quality non restricted rifle that is essentially indistinguishable from a slick side AR-15. I'm very happy, and the issues I had were relatively minor for a first run gun from a new manufacturer.

    Name me one Canadian manufacturer who has met a time line on a new product? Even today another Canadian manufacturer has had some minor issues that owners had to self remedy.
