Yes Sean, you are correct. RA is not sending us old models, we just have old stock that takes forever to sell. That's what i meant, sorry for the confusion.
The RA dealer told me the history of my XCR-M before i purchased it, stating it was 2 years old. I was surprised (now i have seen it firsthand) that it was the old model. I didn't take into consideration it probably sat in Customs for 'X' amount of years.
Apologies....I misunderstood what you meant.
