    That's gonna be heavy for real work that involves carrying a rifle for long periods of time.

    If it works I'd be down to try one out for a fun gun.

    Not legal for civilians in the USA:

    Under the NFA it's a machinegun: NFA defines “machinegun” as “any weapon which shoots, is designed to shoot, or can be readily restored to shoot, automatically more than one shot, without manual reloading, by a single function of the
    trigger."

    It would be less of a strtch for ATF to define it as a machienegun than to define it as not one.

    Come to think of it, that stupid side-by-side 1911 that was going around a while back had the same flaw.

    If I listened correctly the US Non NFA model used two separate triggers and bolts instead of the shared,timed single trigger of the NFA model uses. SJ 40

    Wow, the perfect complement to that double 1911 abomination.

    Pass on that one.


    On looking at their website, pass on everything by that company, actually.

    USA version is set up like a double barrel shotgun. Neat, but I'll pass.

    I may be a crazy old man, but I think I'm going to have to get one of these for the giggle factor.
