The mood is pretty grim at the Bren Ten forum. The latest word from Vltor, is that they will announce, before the end of 2012, when the Fortis/Bren Ten will go into production.
There has never been even a hint, from Vltor, that they intend to pull the plug on the project, but each missed "deadline" serves to convince some people that it will never appear.
I sold four guns in the Spring of 2010, since the gun was supposed to hit the market in May, dealers were taking deposits, etc., but Vltor supposedly had insufficient production capacity to make both Brens, and all the AR parts and accessories that were in high demand. With the U.S. military commitment winding down in the desert(s), we'll see what happens.
