    Wrong, please do not speculate on Wolverine's page. The kits are as good now as they always were.

    Surprised these are still on sale, they were the sale product for all of September. Picked up my 2nd parts kit then.

    Utterly ignorant. All parts kits sit in a sealed bag each in their storage. There are no hand pickings from this, nor were parts put together for "better" or "worse" kits. It's all luck of the draw from the whole lot that they have. For all we know, there could be an almost entire TRW/Sako kit just sitting at the absolute bottom of the pile no one has gotten to yet.


    I think why these haven't sold AS well as say they would have in the US, is for a few reasons. One, not a lot of people have the ability, interest, or funds to build them themselves or pay for some of our more experienced members to work on them. Newer NR out-of-the-box offerings in x51 have come out since these dropped and, unless this platform specifically speaks to you over a more modern large bore firearm, it's a harder sell. Also the actions, although tested and true over many decades, are now showing their date and the complexity of the inner workings require a more significant learning curve and extra accessories for dis/assembly and cleaning than modern offerings.

    Don't get me wrong, I don't think the interest and historical significance is lost on many, and I am an EXTREME fan of this platform (2 parts kits and 3 m305's later), but I can't imagine my points above stray very far from the truth for most general firearm enthusiasts. But hey, more kits for me :D

    the heavy barrel sold out real quick. if the existing kits came with a heavy barrel, they would be gone. part of the problem I think is the guys who bought 3 kits, cherry picked, then sold what they didn't want. people who bought those were not impressed by the condition. a negative will always travel much further than a positive.
