    I have not seen one yet, but I like it too. Looks like a winner, maybe not as compact as the Henry survival carbine, but a good concept.

    If it's compatible with after-market threaded barrels, I'd agree. Although I wonder how much length you really save over a folding stock.

    That is the question isn't it?

    I would be very surprised if it worked with aftermarket barrels. I assume it uses an interrupted thread design with a stud to keep it timed properly. It also needs to connect to the fore-end section that comes off with the barrel. Not sure how it does that, but I doubt an aftermarket barrel would have either the threads or the connection point to the fore-end necessary for the system to work. Just my guess on how it is probably engineered.

    ' thinking it uses spring loaded plungers to replace the 2 allen bolts that hold the barrel in place on the normal model. It's cute and will be a collectors item but no big whoops over the standard model

    I like the concept, but it's something I'd have to see first hand to make up my mind. Wondering how the accuracy will be compared to a standard. I know it won't be the same, but if close, might be worth checking out.

    I love my Marlin 70PSS Papoose enough to think about getting another, but they sure are hard to find right now. It looks like Ruger is stepping up to fill a recognized demand.

    But why keep that gawky forend? The Marlin uses a knurled nut, probably a little slower than the Ruger to mount, but much cleaner.

    The rimfire aces say that the barrel-band forend is a weak spot in the 10/22 design anyway, since a single-pillar mount gives better accuracy.

    I found that putting a damp business card under the barrel, near the barrel band and then snugging down the action screw helped bed the barrel in place on a wooden stock
