they sold 700 ( I didn't calculate that... but I believe it and will take others word for it... pages and pages of BUY NOWS that look to be 700) .
700 sold since Last Friday morning. I don't think it was secrecy , I can only deduce that they required no advertisement.
Any ahead of time advertisement and, Like BusaDave said, I believe there would have been a stampede.
The appeal over current ionBond is that the Ionbond guns are likely to remain in use for a long time.
There was two major points of appeal here.
1. If you didn't get a USMC rollmarked CQB , this was THE fleeting chance to have one..
2. The USMC marked gun was in the military. .. Either used by a desk jockey who kept a lot of sand in his holster .. or somebody likely in a possible combat zone .. Middle East.. judging from the looks of that kind of wear. .. a lot of sand- we can be sure of that.
And if it was or was not - no one can prove otherwise. It's coming with a letter that leans toward the wuz.
700 guns. 4 days. There was more ah-peel than a train full of bananas.
