They even have the obligatory "SWAT" video! I wonder who is making it for them? I doubt they tooled up to make forged AR receivers. And I bet they bought the piston from some else as well. It does look good though. I'm not a fan of rails unless you are really going to hang a bunch of junk on it.

If it is made by Ruger I would assume it would be made using the investment cast process?

Probably, but cast receivers have a very bad reputation. Ruger puts out good castings but I don't think they would want to buck the accepted standard. We'll have to see. Probably cheaper to buy them from someone else anyway.

Wow, they even mention the use of a suppressor because of the 4 position gas valve. This is definitely a product that would never have been made if Bill Ruger were still in charge.

No, that version shoots water balloons.

Hitzy you mean worthless as in they're already cheap to buy on your own, or do you mean worthless as in Garbage? If the second is the reasoning, Pmags are better than most all AR mags ;\)
