The 1-6 has not yet gone into full production.  I've had my hands on a preproduction model which was quite nice in most respects, but designed specifically for extremely heavy recoil, special purpose rifles.  The transition to "commercial production" has not yet been accomplished.  
I will try to provide more information on this tomorrow.

I do not think it is ready for prime-time yet. There is still work done on it.

I agree completely with that.  Just trying to find out a "new" projected date.

I spoke with Ryan today about this model.  To make the Govt model is very expensive, probably taking it out of the market as a viable commercial item.  There are also some problems encountered with quality from glass/coatings suppliers.  Ryan is redesigning for a commercial application, while going to a different glass.  It is probably at least a couple of months before anything is available.  The internals will be pretty much the same, still the most rugged around.
