    I'm out for two reasons, no 40 S&W and no left handed version.
    Oh yeah, and the price!

    I'm out. Too many trigger pulls for me to fire it and also the cost. I do like the calibers, but not enough to buy one.

    Just a taste of the candy!

    Okay, so this is what, a double action only rifle? It seems to have the same amount of trigger pulls per shot of any other rifle. What am I missing?

    So it sounds like a hybrid of a double action and an open bolt mechanism? The trigger pull initiates the extraction phase, and the end of the trigger the bolt slams forward to fire but stays locked until next trigger pull? I can see the suppressor aspect in that all gasses are being vented forward, but what else is the big draw here?

    The draw is for areas with an assault weapons ban.....

    Hmmm that's an interesting approach then. Where does this fall on the issue of the pistol grip then?

    For the action to go from closed bolt full cycle with each pull of the trigger is out of the box technology. The fixed firing pin that fires on bolt close at end of cycle raised safety questions in my mind. I can understand starting with empty chamber. Can understand starting with fired round in chamber. Question cycling bolt with loaded mag in place, does it have bolt lock in open position till trigger pulled? In this litigation happy world I'm sure they have it worked out. Would love to see and shoot one. That is unusual for someone that cares nothing for semi auto type rifles.
