    Hmm interesting, I'd get one. Not much use for my AR since all I can do is paper punching at a range

    For me this is what I would use it for and I think in that case it is preferable to the pump... you could still hunt with it or bush shoot with it if you wanted no?

    Yes. I still could use it for hunting. While follow up shots would not be as fast as the regular pump version it would still be no different than having to manipulate the bolt on a regular bolt gun. And I can still do that pretty fast.

    For general blasting rounds off I'd still prefer the regular pump mechanism.

    I like it. Very similar to a bolt action. Pump actions seem a bit of an anachronism for my uses.

    By the look of the spring in the fore end it will close the bolt on its own. I like that.

    I agree it would be rather awkward unless shooting from a bench but the PAR can be awkward from a bench, especially if you're resting the forend on a bag.

    I'm interested. A great option for those of us that save our brass for reloading. Real question is now, will SAR/PAR marked 30 round magazines be available? That said, they can keep the stock, just allow to accept AR options
