Anyone seen this? It looks like it could be a cool backpacking gun. Though, I wonder about it's legality in Ca.

if its a 16" barrel, and OAL of 26" collapsed, shouldnt be a problem, right?

pretty cool!

If it's for a Ruger Mark II/III, it will be a Title 1 firearm just by itself and you'll need to transfer it through a dealer.

As long as it's got a 16" barrel and 26" min OAL, then you're fine.

The cool thing is, since the upper on a Mark II/III IS the firearm, you can go back and forth without worrying about creating an SBR and violating NFA stuff.

Another product brought to you by the people who have yet to deliver after 6 or more years on many depositors Shrikes.

I read that the MSRP is supposed to be ~$299. If so it'd be priced in my range, add a red dot and back up Irons and you'll have a light compact .22lr rifle. Too bad we can't get silencers here, because it's just begging for one.
