As an owner of the rifle, I kind of don't want it available. It's a status symbol when I pull it out in social zones and an excellent tool in PvP to finish off low health targets who've fled around around a wall (Yes, even at VA where it's incredibly weak).
It becoming available to the masses would diminish both of those. The status of having this rare weapon would be disappear with everyone running around with it and it would only be nerfed into uselessness now that everyone is using it.
However, I would not be opposed to an "upgraded" version with damage balanced for VA levels AND the secondary fire requiring line of sight.

Fanfiction! ZOMG! Read it now!
I wouldn't mind having access to that rifle as it would complete my collection of pre-order items.
In addition, I would have to agree that it is time to add the rest of the pre-order items to the C-Store. I would imagine that the contracts or agreements with various retail sellers regarding the pre-order items have expired.
More toys to enjoy for the masses and income for the business!
The rifle and the red matter capacitor are two of the pre-order items I still don't have. I think I've got everything else, basically.
