    $2800 would get me a really nice Beretta or Browning.

    Probably not much more than a Tac-ed out Saiga 12. most of the crap stuck to it looks like plastic. Ugly, bulky, unnecessary plastic.

    I'd have to pass on this thing. It's just way bigger and uglier than any 12gauge shotgun has any need to be. Especially for $2800 I expect some style, not random bits of plastic cobbled together.

    Wrong caliber. We need a 20ga gas-operated box-mag semiauto shotgun. [Atchisson did all the homework on combat shotguns already, all we latecomers need to do is follow the prescription...]

    Saiga 20, where are you when we need you? :confused:

    Too big and bulky and way too expensive for something that new on the market. Even if I could afford it I would still pass on it at this time.

    What part of "Smooth" abused Fostech as a child?

    Were they drunk during their online engineering course and thought it said "Complexity in machines encourages reliability" ?

    Did Fostech decide to eliminate the middle doldrums of failed weapon design and jump straight to "science fiction B movie prop" ?

    I assume they were driving to work in their pontiac Aztek and thought... How can I make a gun that embodies this look? Clunky, yet unergonomic, hell let's go further.... ANTI-ergonomic!

    Maybe this was all a "take your son to work day" wherein a young child asked "daddy? can you make my k'nex gun into a real gun?" and he replied, "Yes son, but they will cost $2,600.... each"

    in a nutshell it's as if these two things shown below made sloppy, ugly, love, and then had a deeply unwanted baby.....

    No doubt it will be making an appearance in the next Star Wars episode.
    It might look a mite overly tacti-cool, but it sure is impressive in action.
    Wonder if the high price will be a hindrance or a motivation for status seek.

    I see a lot of negative comments. In the video I've seen - it runs like a sewing machine.

    Anybody ever shot one? Held one? Or is this the Elmer Fudd bashing thread?

    Might as well pile on. The Echo trigger looks like a terrible idea also.

    Can you expand upon your reasoning for that? Why is it terrible?

    Since the trenches of "ole dubya dubya uno" to the jungles of "Nam" and on into "the Iraqistan", the PUMP ACTION TUBE FED 12 GAUGE SHOTGUN has been regarded as an excellent weapon.

    These strange new, and UGLY semi-auto box-fed jobbies just don't do anything those old "trench guns" did just as well.
