FKBRNOUS going out of business!
« on: March 03, 2023, 07:23:54 AM »
I received the following email from FKBRNOUS (the US representative, NOT the factory in BRNO):

To all of our valued customers,

It comes with some disappointment, to bring you this information. We will be coming to the end of our run as of today, February 28th. To some, it will not be a surprise, given our site's lack of product. There were just things that were out of our hands, causing flow issues with products.

We know it will come with concerns for such things as warranty work, parts, and accessories. To answer that question, we will advise all of you to contact Italian Firearms Group at info@italianfirearmsgroup.com. Those folks are a standup bunch of people who will assist with all of your FK pistol and ammo needs.

In the end, we wished we could do more for you all. The fact that we could no longer bring in items to provide customer service, bothered us. And we know that may have also made some of you upset. For that, we extend an apology and hope that you get the service you expect and or need from IFG.

We hope you keep up the support for this awesome product. Maybe in the near future, more exposure, all of the difficulties with products will ease up and be more readily available. Keep supporting the 2nd Amendment and FK Brno.

Best wishes,
FKBUS Team, Gainesville

They had previously identified another source for this special ammo (7.5 FK), in an earlier email.

Yep, it seems that the Italian Firearms Group has taken over for FKBUS, which had not done such a great job, as far as I could see. Their distribution was pretty haphazard.

Yes, I had issues with getting my PSD from them and later with ammo orders.  They shipped the wrong ammo and it took months to get them to correct it.

I see that IFG only shows the PSD available, not the Field Pistol or the PSD-C.

I was hoping to see that they would be offering the FK BRNO Blind Sniper rifle.

Someday I hope to be able to go to the IWA show.
Meanwhile we just have to wait for TFB to post something from it.

I’d really like to see Tanfoglio chambering their DA/SA all-steel CZ75 clones in 7.5 FK, or at least providing caliber conversion kits / barrels for their existing 10mm pistols. Would be a nice alternative to the SAO PSD, with its brick-like grip “ergonomics.”

And also a 7.5 FK PCC / pistol…B&T, are you listening?
