The video does a good job of selling it. I'm definitely interested and look forward to hearing more about it, but $2500 seems a little bit excessive for a plastic framed gun. I guess I'd like to know what sets it apart from some of the other makers other that being lighter, as that is not an issue with myself when choosing firearms.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

nice cartoon but its a side folding stock. those are clumsy and often throw the weapon off balance. never fired a side folding stocked weapon that felt right.

Jon, the video shows the stock as being removable and can be switched from telescoping to side-folding.

I think the question here is: What does everyone think about a plastic framed AR15?

I think it is really cool. Polymer technologies aren't coming, they're here. A gas piston modulated design is what will replace the M16 eventually IMHO. I am looking forward to the civilian version coming to market.

Hey too each his own. I'm not a fan of the "ninja" gun look I prefer wood and steel. I'll stick to my SKS and AK.
