Default A group question answer

I will see what we can manage. We never stack the prices by offering cans and belts. New 100rd belts are 24.00 to 21.66 per belt depending on how many you order and the new production belts are lost leader to support ammunition sales as are the new cans. Our business is based on military orders and the civilian business is a spin off of that because we are shooters as well

Here is the link to the links just as an example:

Default 100rd PKM Cans, update & reply to post

If any other orders that include loading a sea container comes up that would allow us to ship other goods into the United States, we are happy to make a post to that effect otherwise we have to wait for a viable import. Otherwise we end up loosing money. Please keep in mind these are new production cans and not surplus that are bought by the pound in any condition. This translates to production schedules and viable quantities both for production and import

DSHK Tipods is something that we would like to bring into the US as we support both the gun and 12.7 x 108mm ammunition.

With the current craziness overseas we expect our Domestic PKM link inventory to be wiped out and more PKM links, 100rd cans can come in with the next sea container. We would actively work to add DSHK tripods to that mix

Default On a similar note

we were just asked about the pricing of DSHK tripods and felt it would also be helpful to share the answer with the group

"Regret there are too many variables until we actually organize a viable shippment. When the USG places an order with us economies of scale help, drop the unit cost and improve shipping options when can be a huge factor in the pricing. When we are importing for shooters alone, the size of the import needs to be viable as it is easy to teeter on the edge of loosing money as it is making money, and charging a wild price is not good for business in the long term"

Default Depending on you application why buy new production links?

One person asked why not buy a single surplus belt at $40.00 each elsewhere rather then investing in a case of qualified new production links at a lower cost and the answer was worth sharing with the group below


The belts we have a qualified new factory production with both production and MOD certification. The belts you refer to are bought as surplus scrap metal by the pound, and you do get what you pay for.

These importers are buying on price alone an maximizing profits
Ours are used in combat for military use. Sometimes surplus is great and it works, sometimes it is not. The difference is that when you are carrying a PKM in the field or on outpost or a checkpoint, the gun cannot fail or your buddies end up in body bags or being beheaded on a Ytube Video. The USG has bought over 10,000,000 of these links from us as links have to be treated like certified aircraft parts, climbing ropes or parachutes. You cannot load a PKM with a coal shovel if the PKM link fails.
