Hmmmm....very nice concept, very little friction/wear and easy field strip as well, I like that. An AK design incorporated concept.

$1000-$1500 ranging for the uppers, it's not a LaRue, but I could comfortably get used to it.

Now if they would use this piston design in a 24" varmint set up that would be great, I badly want a piston precision rifle, some say it can't be done, I say it just hasn't been done yet. Sort of like this free float piston system. I also fell in love when I seen the AK style carrier.

Eh, I don't have a need for it, and there is one problem that comes to mind. Most right handed shooters that have a light on their rifle will have it on the left side. Most right handed shooters would also have the charging handle on the right side, which would create a problem. The light is going to prevent you from getting to the charging handle easily, thus making you move your light.

I don't use VGs though. I use a thumb over grip either with or without the AFG so I need the light to be on the left hand side where I can hit it easy. The only other option would be to use a pressure switch but I don't really like them very much.

i can fully understand not likeing the chincy pressure switches as well, hence my set up. and i can see what you mean, but if u watched the vid, it has a standard CH as well as the foward CH at the same time.
