    I just saw this in a magazine the other day. It looks very interesting. I think if didn't already standardize to 5.56 and 7.62x51, I'd probably have this thing in place of the AR. I like the reliability of the AK, but like the platform of the AR. (Not trying to start another AR vs AK thread). This thing looks like it has what I like about both and the ammo is cheaper.

    Anyone actually held one/fired one yet? I saw that the MSRP was $800...not bad on first glance.

    Cool looking except for the left had cocking lever. I'm a lefty. If I'm going to shoot a AK it will be in 7.62x39. If I wanted a mouse caliber I would have kept my AR's, IMO.

    Not sure what you read, but the Bravo 18 does shoot 7.62x39...its even in the title of the URL.

    Well they added 30lbs of aluminum to an AK to make the mall ninjas happy. YAY.
