    Nice! And I bet it cost as much as the muzzle velocity it produces...

    It says in the specs that it's chambered for .223. I would hope it's actually chambered for 5.56.

    IIRC they were around in the 'Past" but very pricey,I saw one at a gun show last month that IIRC the guy had a price over $4000 on it

    IMHO, a bullpup design needs to have bottom or forward ejection in order to be viable. Hard to shoot that rifle from your left shoulder...
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I used one during Helo ops on the SW border years ago. Not really impressive compared to a good AR for the money.

    IIRC, the original AUG let you switch which side the casing ejected from. Just going off looks, it doesn't look like this model has that option.

    Seems like parts would probably be pricey to replace. Will stick with my AR.

    Do you mean to say that you are going to stick with your super pimp, awesome AR?

    EXACTLY.

    You better not decide to trade again. I got this one set up all the way. Got the backup irons and aimpoint installed. Now to just zero them and play around with that scope.
