    Great!!! A guinea pig!!

    I am somewhat wanting one of those - why? - just because!

    Be waiting impatiently for a full review after you get it.

    Ya had me all exited when I saw the thread starter "long range pistol". I duno if that will produce impressive grps past 100y. But it sure does look like loads of fun!!!

    I agree w/h Rocky. It looks like a nice truck gun.

    I'm interested what this offers vs. an AR15 pistol. Seems like the cost would be comparable unless I'm terribly wrong.

    Without the recoil buffer tube, etc., I imagine it will have a little bit of bite with a 62-69 gr. .223/5.56 !
    I need to look for a 18 1/2 " holster now !!!!LOL.
    Book retail shows around $699 or so but dealer let me have it for the street retail of $499. Have seen it since on the web for $475.

    The gas op. system should produce a bit more felt recoil. Especially with the light polymer construction. Don't know how accurate it will be. I have fired my AR carbine without use of the stock. It's hard for me to hit anything.

    Will not be "long range". Unless you put a short eye relief scope on it and shoot from a bench.Expect vels.under 3K also. This weapon is clearly designed to be fired from the hip. How long range can that be ?? Can you have fun with it ? DEFINATELY !! --------

    So ya might need to get a bi-pod, mabe a Hart barrel. Then it might do some long range.

    As for the recoil. I dont think it woud be awfull. A .223 isnt bad out of a Contender.
