    Wow! That pistol looks really cool! The grip angle seems even a bit more raked than a Glock, though. The bore axis seems REALLY low, which is fantastic. I can't imagine this will be any more available in the US than a Steyr, which is as rare as unicorn meat.

    Mehhh. I could take it or leave it.

    Does look a bit like the Steyr had relations with CZ. If the Russian military adopts it, probably not much chance they end up in the US in any quantities.

    Weighs about two pounds, not much different than a steel 1911. Probably reliable as a brick. Ugly. Weird. I want one.

    I think first line on the contract must have read, "needs to be butt ugly!"

    I like the bore axis and slide. Pretty thin for 15 rounds too. I want one.

    ... Why the complication?!
    It goes against the principals of their iconic rifle and combat style.

    Best thing in that article was the Russian IPSC competitor holding that AK shogun. When I first saw that muzzle brake in the video, I thought that it must belong to a 50 BMG.

    I guess that there is no chance of any of these new guns ever being imported, though, with the way the current political climate is against Russia over the Crimea and Ukraine.
