if a company informs you in advance they they will shut down their facilities and you know how many markers you generaly sell in a month then you know how many to stock.
just b/c you will be out of stock does not mean everyone will. although i do not work at tacticalmarkers.com so i do not know the exact specifics. but i have more experience with excalibur and tacticalmarkers then i do with gunlocators so therefor i am more apt to believe excalibur.
so its this simple. if you want an armotech gun you should call your distributer of choice and ask if he/she has them in stock. then if they do not head over to http://www.tacticalmarkers.com
and contact excalibur and ask him if he has stock. its that simple. dont take my word, dont take gunlocators word. check for yourself.
