I came across this gun yesterday when I checked out the new CDNN Investments catalog. It seems like a very interesting gun for the price of $699. It is a 12 ga and .223 all in one rifle. I would be curious to know if anyone has any personal expierence with this weapon. I was going to buy a Springfield Mil Spec .45 with my gun fund, but am now rethinking that. I think this would be a great varmint/deer gun.

Here is a magazine article that I found. LINK (http://www.findarticles.com/cf_dls/m0BQY/19_46/65017379/p1/article.jhtml)

I have only seen one in a store. It looked very crude and rough.

Handled one at a gun show once. Blech. Uncomfortable as snot. An over-under shotgun/rifle would be much more practical, and cheaper too.

"Interesting" it is. But that's not always a good thing. ;)

FYI CDNN now has them marked at $599. Yes, very interesting. The picture looks really cool. And it takes AR mags and 3" shotgun shells!

I wonder how easy the shotshells are to load.

And if shotshell magazines are hard to find for this "out of production" gun. Doesn't say the company is out of business though.

I also found this....

General Dynamics has announced it will acquire Saco Defense Corp., a subsidiary of New Colt Holding Corp., for an undisclosed amount of cash. Upon completion of the acquisition, Saco Defense will become a part of General Dynamics Armament Systems, and will be known by that name. General Dynamics Armament Systems, based in Burlington, Vermont, will honor the current labor contract with the represented employees of Saco Defense.

..So General Dynamics owns the company that made these.
