Default Zenith Z5rs?

I'm getting close to saving up enough for one and am wondering when these will be back in stock. I see they are $1724, any chance of a discount?

At this time we are sold out of the RS models hope to see them soon, I am sure we could work something out for an AK Files member.

Thanks! Please let me know ASAP. I already have 3 extra mags and an aimpoint T2 waiting for it, very itchy to get one in my hands.

No real updates other than nothing has been shipped to us yet.You may want to consider the PTR 9CT they've been getting great feedback in the field they're available and they cost less

Thanks for the response AF. I'll think about it. Had my mind set on a Zenith but unsure how long I can hold out for them to come back.

The supply of Zenith Firearms has been very poor for the last 8 -10 months and we are not sure when it will improve .

One of the people who work at Zenith posted this on HK Pro on 9/23/2018

Quote:
We have a long overdue shipment as well as a very large one due. Once those arrive and are shipped out, we should be caught up on all the back orders. Once we have solid dates, we'll let everyone know.

Good luck. I got impatient and bought a slightly overpriced one at a local gun shop.

Zenith emailed me by accident about a Z-5RS being able to get backordered.

Next day they emailed me again saying that was a mistake and that message was supposed to be autoposted on a later date, not the date that I got the email.

I ended up emailing Zenith via their website to inquire about a real restock and now I'm on a call list.

So to tie this all together, I think Zenith already has a date of when they will be done with those contracts and it seems to be soon. Having a backorder date seems promising even though he didn't tell me when that will be.

I had a feeling that a shipment would be coming soon... Guess I know what my gun fund will be going towards!

Nice! Hopefully competitive pricing starts due to a few more mp5 makers on the scene.

GL to whoever's trying to get one of the Zeniths. I just bought a Z-5p Wednesday and a Z-5rs yesterday from Grabagun. Waiting on delivery but I hope it goes through.

Technically Zenith and POF are not clones. They are licensed by HK and made in the method of HK on HK tooling. The other makers prices might be the ones that actually out of line a bit, but I only own MKE and POF, so I can't speak to the quality of the other makers. PTR does make quality firearms though.

If I could only have one, I'd keep the RS. More accurate with faster follow up shots.

This is correct, but the POF QC is still quite shoddy. Bought one during the last import and while it ran, mags wobbled like an early import WASR. Actually that's what I would equate them to, early import WASR. Built on quality tooling, but the people building them just didn't give two shits.

That pistol is gone and I'm eyeballing a Z-5RS to go with my Z-5P

I'm still waiting on mine to come but that's what I see from reviews. That is the reason I have waited over a year to get one, which has turned into 2. Z-5rs and Z-5p on the way!!!

Which SB Tactical brace is compatible with the Z-5rs, a buddy picked one up from Kelly and isn't planning on doing a Form 1?

I got my Zenith from Atlantic FTW. The Zeniths are nice as hell. People can say what they want about Turkish politics but those Turks know how to crank out a firearm.

Used to be skeptical about Atlantic too. I can attest to the fact that you won’t get better customer service from anywhere. Atlantic also makes some amazing exclusives even for PTR. If you get two roller delayed blowbacks I suggest the PTR K3P with the 12.5 inch barrel aka the mega pistol, and a Zenith MP5.

I am out of the gun game right now, because I’m buying a house. I should close soon and that Zenith Z-3 or G3 from Turkey is giving me the evil eye. If I buy this, I’ll have 3 308 Roller Delayed blowbacks!!

You bought the 5P from Grab a gun?

Atlantic, are you expecting any Z5P's?

Yea, swooped it up when they sent me a restock alert. I'm unsure if they actually have it to ship right away but I'm going to wait until Tuesday and will give them a call if shipment info hasn't come.

And to Atlantic, I apologize for posting all this stuff under your section. I'm just excited to finally get a chance to buy it and couldn't wait, I had to scoop it up when I had the chance.

You're lucky. I'm on their notification list and never got an email. Hey Atlantic, if you get some 5P's, just PM me before you send out the general email notification.
