Here is a great link to a site for it
Also note that it has the push button saftey and not the ever dangerous lever and does not have the folding stock - if you've ever fired one with the folding stock you'd understand why you wouldn't want it!!!!
This thing is built like a tank and is great for the range and general shoots. The cool thing about it, and really what interested me in it, is that it can be switched from pump to semi-auto with the press of a button and sliding the fore grip either forward a tad or back a tad depending on which action type you want.
#6 shot has about the same felt recoil as a .223, and slugs will absolutely let you know you've been shooting it :lol: ... as someone said to me reently.. it barks :lol:
I'm only looking to get out of it what I paid because I've shot maybe 100 rounds total through it, so it will be $1000 firm.
I would be interested in trades for a higher end 1911's, SIG 229 .40 but either must have the accessory rail. I'd also consider a AR-15 w/ 20" barrel must be a flat top. Others might be entertained, and partial trades with cash could be worked out as well.
If nothing else you'll be able to see and shoot it at the March CO-AR15.COM shoot.
