    Buickrob,

    It makes a big difference, considering USPS ships a box that's around A4 paper size by about 3 inches deep for around $45 USD with door to door tracking to Australia. Thankfully there are dealer's that charge shipping at cost or with a modest charge.

    To justify postage I usually try to buy 4 to 6 knives at once (also so the box doesn't look so empty) but when you're trying to find a Sprint run its hard!

    Did BBS buy out 90% of these?! What the hell is going on? I can’t imagine these sold out that quick from DLT and BHQ in any significant numbers.

    As a few people mentioned, it’s gotta just be pre-orders going out.
    I didn’t get a bhq notice either.
    Mostly everyone that got one so far seems like it’s from bbs.
    If nobody in the rex45 milli thread on bladeforums has heard of a large amount of them being released, I doubt it’s happened yet.
    That’s what I’m telling myself anyway.

    In and out of stock at KnifeJoy too.

    Anybody thinking they just didn’t make as many as the do on other/normal sprints?

    Playing with quantities in my cart it looks like BBS only has 2 or 3 left anyway at this point.

    I think it was the day it was available to pre-order. End of May? Order says 6 months.


    Wow! My order says 'approved' as of today. Hopefully I got one. Won't rest until I get a shipping notice.

    Thats really cracy, i got mine a week ago from ACMA (german distributor). I also had a pre order on KC, but i cancled it after i placed my order at acma.

    However, this knife is perfect! After more than 8 years its time for retirement for my black military with s30v blade.

    The same online store that recently sold a CF Manix 2 exclusive, says there are 477 in stock. I'm guessing a glitch in the system...

    The manix you mentioned at that retailer says 211 in stock. If KW had that ti-cf S90v at a 1200 quantity, the 477 might not be crazy, which is great considering KC still allowed for preorder up until as recent as 2 days ago and would be short changing a lot of people if they can’t fill all the orders

    Indeed, at only $209 ;)

    I am very much baffled by this run of Military. First, it was/is being released several months later than PM2 and Para3. Then only a couple of greedy dealers received it first. And now a rarely-known dealer gets nearly 500 of it in stock while the more popular ones (bhd, kc, etc) marked it out of stock after maybe 5 minutes of in stock.

    What the hell is going on?

    Did anyone see stock at KW? It looks like they got it and sold out as well.

    KW showed in stock today tried to order, but hit complete order button and it said "not available in the quantity requested." While at the same time it disappears on KC site completely! Chasing the Millie like the PM2 always a few minutes late and just disapearing as you watch.
    Is it flipper bots from hell or what???
    Popped up on the Bay at the same time. Of course... 250 and up.
