    Pricey, but at least somewhat unique. Controlled feed with push capability isn't seen much these days. Last time I've seen them in a production rifle is on Lee Enfields.

      @Uncle Yar I haven’t exactly looked hard, but there’s only one autoloading rifle (pistol caliber, at that) that I can think of that uses both CRF and push, and it is claimed that the design allows OOB. Unfortunately I can’t remember what it is, but I think I remember it being a blowback 9mm upper for an AR.
