    I want one, too! But, if I know Obamma, I doubt that he will ever allow it to be sold to his American slaves.

    That balanced recoil system looks pretty neat!

    I see little advantage of a balanced reciol system in a non full auto . I dont need the gun to weigh more . the gun is taller it looks like they spaced up the dust cover to put the counter weigh under it.

    I also wonder if a bigger port is required to run the counter weight ? If so then accuracy might be worse .
    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 .

    Looks like the Rail Fairy and someone from arfcom decorated an AK...

    As far as the "balanced recoil system"... despite the press releases and Wikipedia, it can't "virtually eliminate" recoil. It can't eliminate *any* recoil. As far as Newton's Laws go, the whole rifle (1 each) is a monolithic chunk, no matter what king of monkey motion goes on inside it.

    I'd love to test fire one before I make any judgements. Also, I still want to see the innards, and how they work as compared to a standard AKM type.
