i don' tknow HC, i remember those brits and their SA.s -- i ain't completely sold on the idea that somehow moving the action under ones head is a super-duper fix all for an assault rifle or any kind of combat arm, more complex, more expensive , heavy and square shaped. being shorter helps, some--but it is a trade off. some times the trade off is a negative one.
if you could make a BP that was lighter, more durable, cheaper to make , simple and accurate then people are going to beat down a path to your door. so far there has not been ONE that can exceed existing designs in ALL those requirements and only a few that exceed them in ONE .
several places adopted the AUG , only to go back to more conventional set ups . and it hasn't really seem much combat yet. a few spc- ops running some tuned up versions ain't like they sent 500,000 to capture iwo-jima or normandy, or defended stalingrad with the damn things.
so far i haven't seen anybody who really is doing the bulk of the real combat use these as the man arm. if anybody is going to test it will be the IDF. i figure their going to have plenty of chances to run their war machine hard and for real in the near future if it don't run well the battlefield ain't gonna lie.
the tabor is at least a shot at the prize ring , it is a bit early to declare it a "winner".
