I agree with you....the one thing you can say about them is the cockroaches will be using them after we are dust.

Cool I guess but not my style


Actually as the bolt closes it shoves out the spent brass clear out the front of the rifle. It will eject even when held straight up. The spent brass does not come out with a great deal of force, but they do not stack up in the gun then fall out. I've shot a few of these.

When I was looking for a .22 pistol a few months back I really wanted to see one of these, but none of the shops in town had any or knew when they were going to come in. I opted for a Sig Mosquito instead. After a couple weeks I found an SR 22 and was so glad I had gone with the Sig. The feel Sig was so much better than the Ruger.

if you get one like this:



you don't have to SBR it. There is a 17" barrel buried in there.

Sure it's plasticy but it's extremely compact, ambidextrous, doesn't spit gas/powder in your face from the ejection port like every other 5.56 bullpup, cost no more than a good AR (for the moment), is easy to clean, and is guaranteed to give the Elmer Fudds at the range fits.

Anybody else have a boner for SPR MK12 rifles?

http://www.mk12.net/

There's a 150 page thread over on ARF.







I'm thinking of doing a mk12 "inspired" build in 6.8. I can't afford all the stuff to do a clone but they're damn cool when you start reading up on em

Funny thing is you don't see them being used by the military anymore. Are you going to do a Mod 0 or a Mod 1?
