    Thank you for exploring this issue and sharing your discoveries with us!

    I would speculate that their offerings in 2021/22 when they may recommence civi production/sales, it won’t be the same offering of rifles due to the new EU directive and how national governments are turning it into law. But I don’t even think Alice wants to go down that rabbit hole.

    I can further confirm this! Waimex answered my inquiry with the same explanation, civilian rifle production is ceased for now because they are at capacity with gov/mil contracts until at least middle/end of 2020. Waimex says that a current order of any type/caliber civilian rifle will have about 12 month lead time right now.
