    I tried everywhere to find this thing and its backordered everywhere. I got my gun, scope, and rings on the way and the EGW 20moa is backordered for a month. I have tried cabelas, optic planet, bass pro, gander mountain, midway usa, swfa, egw. Anyone know where i could get one??

    Why are you set on the EGW? There are a lot of manufacturers out there with equipment in stock.

    Each to their own. You don't have to worry about me competing with you for them. A picatinny rail is one of the single least expensive parts of a custom rifle while being one of the most important. That is one corner I am unwilling to cut.

    I am not saying they do not work but I do wonder how they can offer a product the same "quality" as the top tier manufacturers at half the cost.

    I'll pass, thank you.

    Also, fairly new companies to the block, don't tend to price-gouge until all their overhead is paid for, and the owners have already made their multi-millions. That's when the price-gouging begins...

    So, not everyone out there wants to spend $150 on a NF rail, that is JUST as good and precision as the EGW rails, made of the same material, and machined to the same tolerances.

    To me, it just seems obsurd to spend twice the money. You aren't really skimping on a rail, if the NF and Badger's are overpriced to begin with, you know?

    I have 4 EGW rails, and never has any of them given me any issues.

    and because "its" used by the military its the BEST of its category? Pass me that crack pipe...I need a hit too!

    Its no different that scopes used by snipers and wannabe's today. Back in REAL WORLD they used 8X and I think??..not sure...some 10X fixed glass. Now every guy that lays belly down to shoot has to have a 5-50 X with enough hash marks in the view finder to block the target out totally.

    Military...yeah.."better"!
