Woohooo! Just got a call my EBR has arrived. Will have pics in the next couple of days.
Funny thing was, I had visited the shop two days in a row asking if they had heard anything about the backorder (since October 08) and to fondle other guns. Last night, we talked about other EBRs: LWRC, Sig Classic.
BTW: Aim has Russian surplus .223 and .308 in stock.
