Neither the 0562 nor the 0566 worked so I just ordered my first XM-18!

    I'd recently been researching getting a new ZT. Both the 0562 and 0566 had a lot of features that I liked but each had a few that I didn't. On a wild hair I googled Rick Hinderer and found myself on his website. I had no clue that they sold directly to active duty military so I immediately contacted them to see if I could order a XM-18 3" Flipper with the Slicer grind and orange G-10 scale! It's on its way and I'm super excited!

    Stay safe,

    Congrats on the order. I contacted them a week ago and was told to check back in a couple months to place an order for the 3.5".
