With better ergonomics and versatility. If they are under 1k, I might want. But they won't be.
Its a $1500 gas piston rifle using AK mags in 7.62x39 with a retractable buttstock and a grip mounted safety.
I already have one of those, its called a Krebs KTR-03 and I paid less for it than this sig. *Yawn*
If they want to innovate, give me a Sig 542, now that is something I can get behind.
Why? *shrug* A more accurate AK?
Hardly. It is likely to be just as accurate as any other well made AK-100 in 7.62x39. The only thing that really sets the sig apart is if it uses a cold hammer-forged gas-nitrided barrel that with a better 2 stage trigger gives it the potential to be more accurate.
To be fair, Krebs no longer make the KTR-03, and when you find one on sale it's a premium.
I think this has potential. It could be more accurate, more ergonomic, adjustable gas, folding & adjustable stock, uses std. mags.
With Arsenals, Krebs etc, going for $1,000 I don't think this would be out of wack in the $1200-$1400 range when street pricing settles down.
Of course the caveat is: will it run?
