Blasting VLTOR on Facebook!

VLTOR placed this on FaceBook a little while ago
Quote:
Our team at VLTOR has set some internal goals for 2014. One of those goals has been to increase our exposure through social media to allow for better communication with our customers. Every 1,000 likes on Facebook is celebrated at our facility and we want to share that celebration with you. For every 1,000 likes we receive on Facebook, we will be giving something away to a randomly selected person who has liked the page. Each giveaway may be different and the only requirement is that the winner must be eligible and legally able to receive the prize. Since we hit 14,000 likes this weekend we will pick a winner today and announce the person soon.
Thanks for liking our page and being a valued customer/fan!
So I had to push on them a little...

VLTOR, you want to make some people happy in 2014? Make the Bren Ten 10mm guns. Nobody else makes the Bren Tens, everyone is making the AR stuff! That would make a lot of 10mm enthusiast very happy. Many are still holding out with dreams of VLTOR making good on the Bren Ten Project since 2008.

Glad to know that you all are at least listening...all the while we are wishing for a long time. The current government doesn't make things easy on any of us, but would like to get one before we loose that freedom! Hey if you need a serious tester of the product hook me up! Thanks for the reply!
Those of you with FaceBook accounts should look up VLTOR and plug them with responses and hammer them to produce product for us 10mm guys!

Its good to know they haven't scrapped the whole project, or so they say anyway.

Of course, it should have been out five years ago...

Well, I hope it works out for them and us.

I'd like to pick up one to go with my original. I always thought the Bren Ten was one of the coolest pistols ever built.

Thanks for posting that letter Shadow! That, at least for me, was well-received. I appreciated the in-depth narrative and explanations. Hopefully they get this right. It sounds like a cool project.


Any word on the estimated price?

Somehow I think it will be a bit more than the $1000 they estimated 5 years ago...

Time is really going fast these days, and no one wants to wish their life away. Any how, come on end of 2014!

Lets not get our hopes up .How many times now has a company promised a Bren Ten and delivered tears instead?

I'd get a Tanfoglio Stock I or II and call it good.

Very nice Brain, Great looking BT specimen. I had gotten this one used locally and the only one I've seen in person...This one has been shot and was said to have been magnafluxed.

Hope that if they can ever get one produced that I can afford to buy one.

I read that, and it makes me think they've not resolved the design flaws that the Bren Ten had in the first place.
IMHO, They'd be better off making a repro of the Star Megastar 10mm.
at least it actually WORKS...

The Megastar is a bit big and heavy for carry though.

I'm not that familiar with the Bren. Would you mind explaining a bit about the design flaws?

How would the Bren compare with a 1006 Brian, I am curious to know about the carriability of it.

The 1006 is about 3oz heavier. The Bren is 39oz, the 1006 is almost 42oz.

Neither are exactly lightweights. To show how heavy the Megastar is, it weighs in at a whopping 48oz. All weights are umloaded.

What's the capacity on the Bren, is it much more than the 1006? Single or Double stack?
