My LGS has one. Uses standard Ruger 10/22 mags. The only metal in the gun is the action and barrel. Seemed extremely cheap to me. The trigger is plastic inside of a plastic housing. About a 10lb trigger pull.

There is no grip. How would you hold it?

The mag housing is the grip. The middle finger goes in the hole below the trigger. Definately not comfortable.

Just when I thought makers had got the max ugly in a gun this thing pops up.

There are videos on YouTube on the zip gun. There were multitudes of misfires for every magazine load. Some 3rd party mags do not even work. So, I guess there is something worse than a Kel....

Gun websites on YouTube got one. From the videos he has it does not work at all. He can barely ever get a 10 round mag to run without some sort of malfunction which involves clearing a unused round. Most of the 25 round mags he uses won't work in the gun because of the angle. This gun supposedly was designed around the bx25 and he can not get any of them to work in it. If I were you I would save your money. This might be a decent gun in the future if they can ever fix the problems with it.

Looks like a hunk of $hit to me.
