    Default Wondering about problems with Zenith importations?

    I was researching Zenith MP5 clones and came across something interesting:

    Turkish arms factory manager remanded for selling state secrets - CRIME

    The article does not name the American company in question and only calls the owner "K. K.".

    According to the net, Zenith Quest Corp is owned by Kutlay Kaya (http://www.manta.com/c/mh1rz46/zenith-quest-corporation)

    I've noticed on the Zenith site that their MP5 clones are all on backorder.

    So... does this mean MKE guns are leaving the US market again once the current pool dries up ? Does anyone know more about this situation?

    They are now collectors items, if you own a unflired example leave it unfired for gunbroker value.

    Well that's a shame. Still, with the upcoming U.S. factory I'm hoping we get more HK-made civilian MP5s available which I'd prefer over a clone.

    That happened almost a year ago, and further shipments have come in since then IIRC.

    I ordered and paid for a Z-5RS last week. They are supposed to be delivered to the dealer end of this week and shipped to my FFL the following Monday 2/27.
    It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Sounds more like selling licensing/tooling/intellectual property issues rather than issue regarding physical firearm exports from Turkey. MKEs should come in as regular
