    Oh, never mind about the pics, I forgot you and pics dont get along good! LOL That's what I wanted to see if the slots were on the bottom too. I've been playing around with making a few different pistol muzzle brakes. I liked the looks of that one.

    I like that look of that, mainly because there's no buffer tube hanging out the back.

    I got a Bush Master pistol, the brake is basically like that one but has five point at the front instead of four, and yes it does work very well.


    So what's that "support rod" for?

    the rep tells me that its just for extra support since the upper is polymer as well.

    had a quick email with him yesterday & told him of TEC Tactical's intentions for the future purchase of some of these & he was all for it.

    Coils lets just say this: your gonna like it. :-)

    That might be needed for that reason, I can see it causing stress if someone is rough with it or with heavy use.
    I'll keep an eye out for more info on these.

    thsi thing is an absolute blast to shoot.

    cleaned and inspected after... looks perfect.

    it really is a point & shoot gun.

    I like the fact that there's no buffer tube hanging out there too,, kind looks like a HK/AR hybrid pistol in all polymer.

    Hi Dutigaf,

    So, No BS please!

    I have wanted one of these format pistols since Olympic Arms was selling their OA-94. These always struck me as being the perfect weapon for vehicle use due to capacity, and handiness. What do you think? Would this be a good choice inside a vehicle? I knew a guy who owned an Oly, and he had a custom rig made for it. Kinda like the Secret Service shoulder rig but the weapon hung on the right. That was a "BLAST" to shoot!.

    I have to say, this one is EXCITING!@ And Kalifornia Legal....Time to break the piggy bank!!!!
    Imagine whirled peas

    Peace, Love, And Superior Firepower

    Bellson: yeah they have a cali legal version of this with a bullet button or something liek that.... im not sure what the difference is but David @frontier did say they had a cali version.


    its lighter than my para ord P-14 when its loaded. :-)


    so far my complaints on this are NONE. but i did just throw the aluminum mag over to the side & used a magpul.

    long term? only thing i could see is that the poly will show scratch or scuffs but so would aluminum.

    then you just scuff it all for a matching look.

    this thing is cheap enough that it shouldnt bother anybody anway.
