I own a quad rail from them and I know how much that cost. Now as far as that rifle is concerned you may need this.

Interesting... Looks like it's built on an AR lower, be cool if they would build that upper in 5.56 also so you could shoot cheaper ammo, considering I've never even heard of 6x35 or whatever they said it was...

I shot one of the prototypes of this rifle two years ago at the NDIA Small Arms Symposium. The round is proprietary and was developed by Hornady for KAC. KAC claims 5.56 ballistics out to 300m which is questionable. I have never seen it for sale commercially. The gun itself was developed to meet a military PDW requirement. It is very controllable in full-auto fire with very little muzzle climb. Another interesting feature that you don't see in the pictures is the dual gas piston/op rod operating system. I'd like to see their idea of dimpled barrels find its way into the AR marketplace.
FYI- just because you see it on KAC website does not mean it will be available for civilian sales....especially this particular gun.

That's why I'd just like one of those uppers in 5.56 available

The cartridge.

ETA: I'd like to see what one would look like, and could do, w/ the 7.63x39

What's so much better about this other crazy one for this new PDW?

Nothing as far as I can tell. I'm not an advocate for either. I'd rather have a 16" .308 assault rifle for the purpose this PDW is being billed for, and if that was found to be too cumbersome, I'd grab a UMP, but I can't see needing smaller than a 16" carbine.
