    11-12 pounds for a pistol caliber carbine? Thats about as much as my M-16A4 with a 203 under the barrel. That is way too heavy for that kind of weapon.

    It looks cool, if it was say, under 8 pounds, I might consider a .45 version, depending on price, and what kind of magazines it takes.

    Definitely looks unique! It will be a very long time (unfortunately) before I could consider purchase of a "longgun" of any sort, I doubt this Taurus would make my list. If I could buy one right now, I'd probable pick up a Keltec Sub2000.

    Where did you see 11-12 pounds at ??? What I see listed is 8-9 pounds. This does look interesting. I will have to wait for the reviews on it, but if it is a higher capacity .45acp model than what is currently out there with the Beretta CX4 and Hi-Point 4595 then this will be a hot seller. The only other .45acp carbine that is high capacity that I know of right now is the Kriss Super-V and that is $1700 priced at my LGS. God Bless

    That Kriss Super-V looks like a cosmic ray gun of sorts, but man is it cool , and will take 30 rd G21 mags. My buddy has one.

    I too like the Kriss Super V, but I have had a shop tell me that the semi auto does not perform that well and seems to jam up often. The range I go to has one and it has had to go back to the manufacture a few times. If I am correct the manufacture is actually a few mile from us here. For $1700 I would hope it worked great !!! God Bless

    2 things.

    First off "Already heralded around the world for its top-end performance, reliability and workmanship" I would like to see who around the world is heralding it.

    Secondly - I would strongly consider it if it had a folding stock.
    -It is a seriously scary thought that there are subsets of American society that think being intellectual is a BAD thing...

    I have to admit it looks pretty neat, though I can't think of any real reason to get one. Same reason I like the Beretta and even Hi-Point carbines but unlikely to get one, just no way I can justify the outlay in my mind.

    If 20 or more rounds in 45 was available, and folding stock it would sell. I'd likely buy one.

    8 to 9.25 lbs is still a totally ridiculous weight for a pistol caliber carbine. In comparison, a Beretta CX4 Storm only weighs 5 2/3 lbs unloaded. It is not even remotely close to that.

    Beretta has high cap mags available for the CX4 Storm in 9mm ( 20 rounds ) and .40 S&W ( 17 rounds ).

    This carbine will be a dog, due to its heavy weight. Another Taurus flop.

    Just weighed my Hi-Point carbine with ATI stock, and it came in at 6.7 pounds. It'd think with some better materials than what Hi-Point uses, they could make these a little lighter.
