      Those will leave a mark alright. It will also leave a mark on your range ammo budget. It would nice to see a gas piston weapon for this. Adjustable gas to go with it would also be a plus.

    Another primitive looking Russian firearm…clumsy, heavy, poor ergonomics. By the way, proper English term is “subsonic”, not “pre-sonic”.

    Basically a Russian version of the Israeli Tavor X95. I would have to give the reverse direction AK Mag release a try to see how that would work out. The HK style charging handle bolt lock is a nice touch and something the X95 lacks since its bolt lock is back by the front of the mag. The buttplate release is a little exposed but…. All and all it looks like it is built like a Bullpup AK which would make it very hard to stop from functioning correctly under adverse conditions. IMHO

    Like Russian Saiga and Vepr shotguns, needlessly heavy, poor ergo, too much metal, probably freeze on the cheek in subzero temps, kick like a mule with heavier loads, unreliable with lighter loads.
