Agreed. I am no fan of bullpups but I am glad people have another option. I am sure these will sell very well.Personally I hate bullpups, but like you say it's refreshing to see a new rifle on the US market that isn't an AR or AK derivative. And far from being a new unknown design this one is actually battle-proven.
And people used to say the Glock was ugly!
AR-10 and SR-25 pattern guns have filled many of the roles the M1A/M14 used to fill. Outside of certain rifle matches and nostalgia amongst certain people, there isn't much use or market left for the M14 platform.Sweet! The more the merrier.
Looks like SA is rolling out so many new guns in recent year(s) and dropped a few high dollar M1A match rifles in their line up. It appears "the last steel warrior" sell is winding down perhaps?
