Centerfire Systems of Versailles, KY listed this carbine for sale in their catalog dated 7/20/1995 for $324.97. The carbine does not appear in their next catalog dated 01/1996, meaning it was sold during that period of time. Centerfire Systems obtained this and other carbines direct from INTRAC. Centerfire's first catalog dated 6/8/1995 does not list this carbine, indicating it was received from INTRAC probably sometime in June or July of 1995.
