I founded TFB in 2007 and over 10 years worked tirelessly, with the help of my team, to build it up into the largest gun blog online. I retired as Editor in Chief in 2017. During my decade at TFB I was fortunate to work with the most amazing talented writers and genuinely good people!

    As a lefty shooter I am disappointed in the action of the brass deflector, when he is firing it at the end several casing miss the deflector completely and fly back on an angle, being a lefty and small (short length of pull, receiver close to body) that could have resulted in hot brass to the face, that is not tacti-cool.

    Not one to care for price of a quality gun (good things cost look at OLED tv's compared to the LCD tv's) I just want to know the outcome of a stress test, 15,000 rounds and details on problems that occured. I do love the free floating barrel and the complete adaptability to any situation from CQB to open field this is a gun ready to fight that will reach out and touch somebody. I can see myself buying this gun and getting a 10 inch and 14 inch barrel for those situations. It being so modular makes this gun worth the price and it's still cheaper than a SCAR that isn't so modular (internally I mean and is the SCAR ambidexterous? Nice to know even though Iam a righty).
