Cool! Can’t say I’ve ever seen one in person but would like to handle and maybe shoot one someday.

Odd thing to me is giving a new design the same model number as a previous, totally unrelated, model.

I always found that odd also.  Winchester did that with several models, the Model 59 shotgun and Model 59 .22 rim fire is another example.

They are fun to shoot. Just be sure to keep your hand out from under the ejection port.

Yep, good advice!

And when wearing a long sleeve shirt make sure the cuffs are closed or you will get hot brass down the sleeve, been there, done that…Embarassed
