Story is from July 27th, so maybe a good number have seen it, but I bet many haven't!!

Looks similar to the DPMS uppers with no deflector or forward assist. The lower also reminds me of the CTR-02, but I like it. I do like the handguard though, but no cooling slots or cut outs?

Ok, I'm done being critical :D .

The lower does not look anything like the CTR-02 but the upper does. The difference I see is the dust cover which the CTR-02 does not have.

I said it reminds me of it, the line from the front pivot and around the mag release reminds me of it. They both have that beefier look.

Nah, I've got too many exotics as it is... I'd love to see someone here snag one though. :)

I dunno why LEO's would take S&W over Bushmaster and Colt tho.

Guess you don't know about S&W and their long standing support of law enforcement agencies? *shrug*

Very true... I would like to see someone at the range with one.
