Good for them!
What I learned was the base model is only about $1700 MSRP. A lot less than I thought. The picture above is NOT the base model. The base model wouldn't come with the EOTech sight or sling.
While I have not fondled one, or seen one, even, at a gun show, these appeal to me. They cover my carbine desire, AND they shoot a manly .45 caliber, of which I have a few in stock.
Maybe I'll like it less when I've more closely inspected one, but I could get used to owning one of these and not have to hunt for the perfect carbine any longer. As long as there are no problems with it. The only shortcoming is the magazine commonality is with Glock, only, I think, and I'd rather not get a Glock of any flavor at this point. And that's not that big a shortcoming.
This would be the ideal gun to jump through hoops for to get a suppressor. Make it a modern day DeLisle...
