Gunfighter and MCG - More EU Stock?

Postby RN_Max » Thu Apr 26, 2018 0:22

Someone had to ask, given that the current container sold out before it arrived (or did it?) ... is there more Gunfighter and MCG stock on the way to Europe?

I want to ask the same. I just underestimated how fast these things are sold out, just as VKB did.

I would also like to know about the MCG rev A grip availability, for my Gladiator Pro Mk II. Also looking forward to the release of twist adapter!

as well as stock info I wouldn't mind knowing if there is any info on parts to turn rev.A to rev.B with regard to the connector, not worried about dry clutch access change or any other differences aside from connection. I don't mind soldering and modding and have workshop access, I just need the connectors used as cannot find them elsewhere in the size needed. If no plans on that a rough idea of the rev A grip availability would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello Eduard mate we need some info on what's happening with the Rev. A. grip - you said like 2 weeks ago you had to check something with the guys then it would be up to order that night, still nothing. Just complete radio silence. Getting a really negative feeling about your company/brand, I'm a patient person but I bought the gunfighter in June last year, with a view to the MCG coming out in September as it was then predicted to be in stock. MCG 'released' in December in the US. We are now in May, still nothing for Europe.

If you don't know, or need to find out, then please just say so.

Guys, thanks all for your interest in VKB products. I am sure it worth to wait some time to get MCG stick. Before I could try only a prototype and only for few minutes. I believe that our R&D guys with the help of sim community did the great job.

From my side I did all I could to keep the price low, optimized logistical chain, got a new website which allows to choose the most suitable payment option and not being overcharged.

As you know, there is a famous triangle in each project: Quality, Cost and Time

Apparently, VKB chooses quality as the highest priority. The company is growing slow but from the other hand there is no investors which requires quick return on investments despite of quality. So, quality is first.

The second priority is cost. It is tempting to get some stock quick, pay for air shipping and then just charge, you guys, more. But, I believe, it is not right things to do, neither for us, nor for you. The guys who does not care about price, they could just buy it via US store or directly via VKB HQ and pay for express shipping and import taxes.

I personally believe that it worth waiting for couple of month and save at least 20% (probably because I am not so young anymore and could wait longer, hehe). I understand the point that in this case EU customers are behind the ones in North America or Russia. But it is not because EU has lower priority but just because of different conditions and legislations.

And now, the most important questions - when new stock is available ?
It is a good one. MCG is not a new product anymore. The manufacturing process is polished now. But taking into consideration that VKB should produce at least minimal amount for ocean cargo and then it will take time to be delivered to Rotterdam and summer holidays season... I would expect MCG to be in stock in August-September.

Saying that, please, understand that it is just my opinion. It is not official VKB statement, proved by head of manufacturing and carved in stone. It is just my very rough estimate.

Thanks for the update.
What about those of us who ordered the pro version that had their order messed up because of the broken Onlineshop. Do I have to wait until September now to get my pro extension kit? That's not "about a month more" wait as previously stated.
