    Huh? This reminds me of a mix between a FNAR and a Cx4 Storm. Seems like a quick cash in on the "Anything-That-Uses-STANAG" crowd. But it doesn't seem to bring anything new to the table.

    It brings another ban compliant, off-list semi auto rifle to the table

    It also looks to be completely plastic shrouded for one hell of a durable finish

    And based on the shotgun of similar type for a great combination with it

    This is what the FNAR should have looked like. Good job Benelli!

    I would go nicely with my Benelli M1. How pricey are they

    That was my 1st thought... I may get back into the 5.56mm game :evil:

    The buying-force is strong with this one. If that shows up in .308 I don't think i could resist.

    It will accept standard M16 magazines... PMAGs :evil:

    That's the Beretta RX-4 storm. Beretta (supposedly) canceled that project because of a combination of export restrictions (out of Italy) and import restrictions (into the USA).

    Looks like they found a way around it.

    It won't sell. You can't mount a ridiculous number of accessories to it, therefor the AR-15 fans will look at it and say "But I can't fit the other $3000 in accessories I have on that!".

    OOOO I second that for one in .308!

    I am strangely drawn to this one and I don't know why. I may have to have it.

    It does look clean but I don't know about the drop in the stock. Don't know how comfortable that would be with a pistol grip.

    Not all of us AR-15 fans are like that. But for me to accept it, it must absolutely, positively be able to mount a light and optic (clearly, it's able to mount the optic), and, preferably, a quick adjust 2 point sling.

    Unlikely I would buy one in the near future, though. Would like to shoot one and see how it runs.

    Now, if Benelli/Beretta/whoever the hell would bring the price down to $800 or so...it would probably compete very favorably with the Mini-14 and the lower priced ARs...

    I got to fondle one of these in the store today...I'm am impressed and really want one. I didn't like the $1199 price tag though. The drop in the comb is comfortable with irons (which I thought were really nice). At first I thought it might use the benelli inertia-locking because the bolt lugs look similar and I couldn't see a piston. I liked the sleek looks unlike the beretta counterpart.

    would look alright if it had a straight stock instead of having the drop. kinda looks doofy if you ask me

    The pics do not do it justice, it is much nicer in person. I uses the well proven system of the R1, can accept P-mags, has nice controls and shoulders nicely.

    There are also optional rails so you can attach lights.

    I'm guessing "ban compliant, off-list" is a California thing? Cause I have no idea what it means.
