This is a very interesting project Rick. Hope it works out to an NR.
My only dissapointment would be that in order for it to look NR (as we all know it plays a big role in the "classification process") we as future customers would need to invest another good chunk of $$ to change it to what it should be like in the 1st place. Its just sad that its the way you have to go about it.
By looks alone I would LOVE it to be like the HK Mr308.
Any pricing in mind?

Might as well kick his dog and shoot himself in both feet while he's at it. Not only would it be absolutely insane from a competitive standpoint as someone with the knowhow would copy the design, but it might just mess with the classification. Just have some patience and good things will come.
Any pricing in mind?
Do you take what you can get or do you get what you can take?
I dont even know what it looks like and I still cant stop myself from checking in here non stop.

What we sent the feds is a very rudimentary but operational gun, the reason being we can refine the looks once we know whether to bother investing a bunch of $$ into the project or not. IF they deem it as restricted we will abandon it for now, however if they do the right thing and class it as NON restricted then we can start to get creative with the look.
As for 9" barrel length, NOT gonna happen as that would ensure it being restricted.
Price for the prototype in the $50000.00 range. Price for the production model IF and when we do get it into production will have to be figured out once we have some made. We are hoping to come in in the $2500.00 to $3000.00 range much like the higher end AR10 rifles run, but at this point it is merely conjecture. If the market will support the volume to warrant buying higher production CNC equipment the price would come down some, but again at this point it is too early to project pricing with any certainty.
The way we have designed these it would be very easy to scale it up for 300 Win Mag or down for 223 which opens up many more possibilities.
But for now we wait for the feds to get around to deciding what they deem it as, it has only been 8 months so maybe I will live long enough to get an answer
