    Looks nice and is cheaper ... but the ability to switch out barrels between 300blk within seconds is just amazing plus all the other custom things I like.

    I prefer the charging handle on the left and ejection on the right ... man I want one

    Tons'o polymer, must be incredibly light. Looks like a cross between a few different platforms.. The quick barrel change option does give it some bonus points.

    All that and a rear grip you can not change to fit your hand..........

    Maybe it is just right for all but I have not see a gun yet that was.

    I'd try it, but it's a pretty ugly gun

    I handled the 22lr version last week, the weight isn't supposed to be too much different, and although someone on the beretta forum said it best 'looks like a Tuna fish with a barrel!' it actually felt good in the hand and had a good balance.

    Not sure i'd choose it over the Tavor though at the same price point!

    Meh. Old school ergos with a short fore-end and a lot of barrel sticking out. I'll stick with my ARs.

    Great for an issue weapon where a lot of different people with different dominances will be using it.. otherwise, I don't get the new uber-ambi kick... just creates more moving parts, more failure point.

    That said, this thing looks pretty pimp... Totally dig it for an SBR. Folding stock with a 12 or less " barrel? Hellsyea

    I find it an interesting concept piece, I still question its reliability in the field though. time will tell

    I am sure they will sell, but they are coming a bit late to the party.

    All of the fence sitters bought up AR's and everything else recently, now will they buy yet another rifle, especially with the price of ammo? I doubt it.

    Gun enthusiasts will buy it along with the Tavor so they can top off thier safe, that already has 10 different AR's in it.
