Here's something exciting to hold in two hands ...

Anyone have one of these?

I wonder what sort of terminal effect you would see out of such a short barrel. I see it has a published velocity of 1400FPS, but I didn't think 5.56 bullets were designed to function properly snd reliably at those speeds. I wonder about accuracy as well. I get it's purely SD oriented so I'd imagine it's designed to be useful to maybe 15 yards (too generous?). And then there's the probably insane recoil and muzzle flash. Hell, you might set your attacker on fire. Either way, very interesting.

Is there a 300BLK modification?

Personally, I have absolutely no desire to even consider something like this. The recoil, noise, flash, lack of capacity would all be no-go's for me. A bit of a useless toy that wouldn't be much fun to shoot.

You saved me a lot of typing.

There was a thread on this a couple years ago IIRC. The consensus at that time was, "you go first"

Just a gimmick gun... little practicality. This would be way down towards the bottom of my toy list.

I wonder if the "great interest in our new product" includes all the folks who click the link just to see what the hoopla is about.

I kinda want one, especially since they make it in 7.62x39 now, but not at $400.

But you admit, it will be on your toy list.
