    Id like ot know how much weight it adds ? if its going to offset the carrier it must be considerable .

    the full rail might help stiffen the barrel maybe

    would make sense on a full auto were control is more important .

    I like the push button safety . id like ot shoot it . its not worth a grand IMO .
    I agree with you that it isn't really necessary for TYPICAL semi-only firing.

    HOWEVER it can do nothing but help with recoil mitigation. They have built a very clever recoil management system with this and I believe it could help semi-auto recoil management, if not to the extent of a full-auto recoil management. Just like the .45 ACP Kriss.

    You can find images of the AK-107 recoil management system online. New carrier, new top cover, new gas block are the major components. A cog system that keeps both pistons synchronized during the load cycle. A clever system, really!

    Someone here has an animation of that system on their signature line. Pretty cool.

    I dont see it reducing recoil at all I see it mitigating the weight of the carrier moving an helping controll the gun easier . I suspose in rapid fire Semi auto it might help . if nothing else the extra weight will help the perceived recoil

    It interesting if nothing else .

    Id like to shoot one as well . just to see if im wrong . i suppose I should not judge untill I know .
