    Very nice.
    Hope built in Picatinny rail will be an option.

    I read that it can use different OEM reg/cylinders and trigger units. Great idea.

    Not seen what barrels they are using though?

    Think LW from what I read. Might be wrong.

    I read that they were doing a heavy varmint with a LW polygonal barrel, but I didn't see anything about the current version.

    I wonder if they can pay LW for selected barrels?

    The one on my HW100 was terrible, but it did have some internal damage. I read that polygonal barrels work better with FAC rated power.

    Only one way to find out :D

    But I suspect someone else already has which is why you don't see them fitted to everything, but as we all know 'everyone else' has a habit of being wrong, doing it wrong or using 'pub logic' to determine what's wrong..
