    WK308-A. The concept

    Coming soon will be our introduction to the WK308-A, hopefully I will be test firing the pre-production prototype with in the next four weeks. The design is 95% completed, I am very excited, I think she is good, but then I am biased. No pre-orders for a long long time, but please feel free to speculate, what would you, the end user like to see? What would be a good target retail price for a no frills, utility, semi auto, non-restricted rifle?

    More to follow!

    I would like to see the pre-order option lol sorry.
    Semi auto 308, heck yeah! Whats not to like. As long as it is reliable and accurate enough to take whitetail at 300 yards. I presume it will be optics and bipod ready.
    Compatible with some form of pistol mag?
    Price point?
    Mismatch is the new black

    Follow the 180 in terms of overall concept. Keep it affordable, those who can afford to play, will. Those who can't will still have a heckuva rifle to play with.
    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

    Let,s keep it realistic, sub 1K for a .308 is just not going to happen. Trust me, if I could, I would.

    Under $1500
    Wide variety of calibers available from 22-250, 260rem, 7-08, 308, 338 federal OR the ability to relatively cheaply change barrels... (USE A BARREL NUT!!!)
    Pistol mag compatable would be a bonus
    Under 8lbs
    Use AR forends so it can be dolled up easily or very minimally
    Use a common trigger group so folks can upgrade easily...
    Offer em naked (muahahaha)... Seriously... Unfinished, a good percentage of folks no doubt wouldent mind custom hydro dipping or DIY Armacoat or Ceracoat... Saves you time, saves us money.

    Ever see an original VW Beetle? The people's car... Make us a people's gun... One in every closet.

    My big thing is accuracy. Can you make them sub MOA or is that just not reasonable - thus the ‘utility’ descriptor? If it was truly sub MOA I’d definatey pay $3k for one.
