Nice. I wonder how they modified it to mount the scope. Or if they kept the old side mount. I wonder how long it will take befor arsenal starts importing them...if at all.

It is ugly and I hate those forward grip/bipods; I like the new caliber though.

Wonder how the new mag works Quad stack? it doesn't look any longer than a normal 30 round mag, but does look wider. I'd like to know also.

The Russians have been working on a 5.45x39 quad stack magazine for some time. They've come onto the market here in the US at times, but command extremely high prices.

I guess the purist can go back in the closet for another 50+ years.
