There's always the chance it retails for a shade less. Consider, as others have pointed out, how much the SCAR goes for, the ACR goes for just under that, upper-echelon AR's go for above that, piston AR's tend to go for above that. Plus you have an Israeli tried-and-true weapon with a ten year field history in one of the most inhospitable environments and no small measure of hype.

The bottom line for all the haters, is that whether you like the weapon or not another rifle on the market is a good thing. It means more choices for the consumer and the antis aren't winning.
I just bought an AUG A3 from Pete so it will be awhile before I buy another gun...but I want
The AUG A3 is the one i want next. Hopefully we can get it approved for export/import...

Very nice. It is exciting to see these rifles are going to be available here. I'm looking forward to hearing more about them.
Well, in a long stroke piston, the piston is attatched to the bolt carrier. I think that everything being equal, a bullpup should have a bit less felt recoil than a traditional design since it's tend to have better balance.

It always seemed to me that the FAMAS had the best gas system design possible for a bullpup, it was like the bullpup equivelent of a G3. I'm not sure why nobody has used either gas system since.
