Yes, I see them being promoted elsewhere. I just hope the 'internal ruction' between the (now seemingly former) partners in Ukraine does not derail the project.

I have a JO .19 NIB. Yes, it is a crime not to see it put to use, just like the Rivers Silver Arrow. However they are fairly rare and it appears increasingly unlikely any more will be made.

If you really intend to compete in that class I suspect a Rothwell 320 would be the ticket. Anyone have any experience of the PARRA T4? I know Maris reviewed it a while ago in A-M but not much has been heard of it since then.

The mk4 replica is from Profi (Russia) which was (I thought) very different from Fora, which are made in Ukraine. Looks like a power struggle going on in Ukraine though. The .19 sized diesels used in UK Vintage Combat are not allowed in the Australian version which is limited to .15 engines. Not that I intend competing anyway. I'd just like a Profi Oliver Tiger..
