UPDATE: if anyone still checks back here.
Well it's been nearly a year, and a bit of a trail of tears. Shernic got way behind on production. They are literally a garage operation, and work
at other jobs, and then come home to a mountain of work. Even thought they have made mistakes, and willingly admit to them, in the realm of finance,
and production management. I really admire their work ethic, and commitment to quality. They got behind because demand absolutely outstripped their
ability to produce by many, many times. They had to use pre-paid kit money to buy production equipment, and hire help to ever get done in a reasonable
amount of time. Then some subsidiary funding fell through, and they have had to boot strap the process, and operate at a loss to continue. However,
all ordered kits will be built, and delivered. they have many dealership, and manufacturing contract waiting in the wings, but they have to fullfill
the pre-sale obligations first. I still think it would a great deal to buy one now, and wait it out for a super high quality product at a drastically
reduced price. the kits are now $215. Estimated wait is over 6 months, but they are getting faster. But, as they get faster, orders come in faster.
When these kits make it to buds gun shop, or your local gun store I would imagine the price will easily double, but you will also get to go home with
the stock that day. Delivery time on mine is scheduled for end of March or first part of April. I hope there is not another delay! I got to hold a
finished SKS modified with this stock the other day, and it is totally freekin' awesome! A guy had it at a gun show, and vendors, and individuals
were trying to buy it off of him left, and right. He wouldn't budge. It feels like a FN FS2000, or more like a Steyr AUG. Build quality is really,
really top notch. There were actually people there who refused to believe it was a bone stock SKS in a modified stock. They accused the guy of being a
trickster with a very expensive custom build. He got a good laugh from it. I'll update again when I get mine, and actually get to take it to the
