Default have you seen the new pistol?

saw one in a gun shop last night. i went to the website and am really amazed at this it may look odd but is all about functionality. it wasnt fitted to my hand but was very easy to hold and use.. i especially like the picatinny rail mount option

The most attractive feature, for me, is the 10/22 mag compatibility.

I will have to try one, because before I fired a Mosin 91/30

I was ambivalent, now I have Mosin fever. Both the M44 and

the Desert Eagle .44 kick out a hilarious fireball, with stock

ammo. So I have to agree that a lot of any gun's real

attraction lies in shooting it. It would seem to be the perfect

partner pistol to the 10/22...

This thing is a piece. I just watched YouTube reviews of it. When they designed the pistol...safety was not a concern. All the normal things like...oh i dunno...an ejector so you can remove a round from the chamber...not there. To charge it you put your hand in front of the barrel to push back the charging handles? Really? That's not only not safe it's kinda dumb. It misfires when a mag is inserted, fires when changing between safe and unsafe. Has failures non stop especially once it's warm. Also, this would annoy me most, the ejection port is right on top of your trigger finger. So if you don't have thin fingers be prepared to be catching brass and getting burned. I think they just wanted to make a cool, new, different, handgun no matter what. Yeah its different, but its a,major fail. Maybe if they address the safety and reality issues...

post #23215 we discussed their ugliness. I was worried about the site's future when I saw them advertised here.

As if we don't have enough crap to hang off our ar's now we have a zip gun rail system. I can just see the marketing...

"To our troops in afghanistan...you can now lay down a suppressive fire on the taliban and the groundhogs at one time!"

Those look scary unsafe for all the reasons that were already mentioned.

Exactly. Its a toy that caters to a certain segment of the population that sit in their momma's basement arguing about which gun is best for the zed apocalypse.
