Guns arrive; Zenith begins fulfilling back orders
Afton, VA: Zenith Firearms opened its doors late Monday night to welcome its first large shipment of MKE guns in more than a year. The quantity received equips Zenith to satisfy nearly half of its current back orders. A similar shipment next quarter will satisfy remaining back orders for model Z-5RS and enable limited new sales activity.
Effective March 18, Zenith will begin accepting distributor, dealer, and consumer-direct preorders for all configurations of its Z-5RS.
A recently negotiated contract between Zenith and MKE stipulates 2019 production and delivery of models Z-3 and Z-33, in addition to third- and fourth-quarter deliveries of model Z-5P in quantities that exceed Zenith’s backlog.
We appreciate MKE’s diligence, despite a difficult last year in Turkey, to reestablish production for the U.S. market as a top priority, and to secure our ability to reliably and consistently respond to the demands of our customers going forward.
