My New toy and range report

Of course I love this new toy, and as far as a range report will let the pic show you. This is a 12 inch target at 50 yards

Not the best looking rifle I have ever seen but hard to complain about the accuracy. Is that 9mm? Looks like a nice compact package.

Thanks, I had no clue! It looks heavy but I assume it is not. Is it popular, getting popular? Sorry it took me a long time to get used to the looks of an AR, will just take some getting used to on my part. Looks like fun or could be serious rifle.

From the looks of that magazine it appears to be a rifle cartridge. Possibly an AR or AK mag ???

It is a "bullpup" design which puts almost all the weight back against the shoulder and it is not really heavy, very well balanced, one of the reasons it shoots so well and has very little recoil for a 556/223 round.

As to popular, it has been around for a while and they are no longer imported, so they are going to get really expensive. The reason I got it when I did.

It is a ton of fun to shoot, the mags are 30 rounders as with AR's

the mags are the original M16 type as there are gaskets in the mag well that match with the slots in the mag to seal it off to keep dust and dirt out.

Cool! Pretty sure they had one of those or one like it on the wall at my LGS going to have to check it out next time I go.

Just what I need another weapon to make my "to buy" list.
