Recently , they resurrected the High Power & updated it. I say bravo and keep it up! Wish they could make this banstate compliant!
    Yessir. I believe their FAL clone (SAR-48) was built on actual IMBEL receivers that where originally build on licensed Fabrique Nationale machinery.

    A barreled, stripped, IMBEL lower receiver just sold for $920 the other day. There's a complete SAR-48 for sale on GB right now, starting bid at $2,995, Buy Now at $3495, with no bids, 2 days left.

      Yes, the FALs were Imbel and the 91 were Hellenic Arms / EBO (?) made in Greece on OEM HK tooling. There innovative in a lot of things, I’ll give them that but the 3.5 million versions of the XD series go along with there previous history of the same with there 1911s, CZ clones and at one point, to a smaller extent there M1A but not as much as the other models mentioned. Bottom line is ANY new quality firearms introduced to the US market is a good thing. Plus if it’s a quality item that works reliably, has good aftermarket and OEM support and is fairly priced it should do well. Only time will tell with all this.

          Seems too small of a market for such a high-priced, Croation-made, KelTec look-alike, bullpup. I have been transformed and would now consider this Croate plastic if the price was much lower.
