There are signs of improved quality here on the forum but I have yet to personally see them. That is not to say they are all bad, just that I have not personally seen an Ilion rifle that I think is up to snuff yet.
My one concern I have in your case is being in Canada. Unless things have changed, the warranty does not extend beyond the USA. Can you refuse to accept the rifle if it does not meet your standards? If so, then I say by all means wait and see what you get.
