    I've heard around $2,000 for the basic model up to $2,500 for the one with optic.

    Hmm, interesting. If it has a not-awful trigger, is reliable, and is accurate enough for regular service rifle standards, I'd consider buying one.

    Regarding the trigger, I know it's a bullpup so I'm not expecting anything like a Geissele SSA. I just hope it's not like the FS2000's 13lb trigger that made my trigger finger feel like it just did a set of heavy weights at the gym after a 30rd mag.

    Could be. We saw approx. 200 Soldiers during our stay, and the only thing I saw them carrying was the older A1-A2 AR type rifles. Maybe they were units in training, and not front line troops.

    I assume you mean the 6.8 kit.

    Have you considered nitrided barrels? I know from experience they are more durable, more corrosion resistant and more accurate than chrome lined. I am not sure if they are more cost effective though.

    Details?

    I haven't been able to find much info about durability of hardchrome vs nitride.

    Yes, I was referring to your wish for the 6.8.

    And no, we are not considering nitrided barrels. IWI US wants to build the semi-auto for the US market in as close a configuration as possible to what they build in Israel.

    Hello Mr. Kassnar,

    Do you have information for FFL holders, where will the rifles be distributed from? What wholesalers so I can get on their list now.
    Or will they all go straight from your company-thanks!

    LWRC, POF, and many other AR manufacturers employ nitrided barrels. But the most famous nitrided barrel of all is the Glock Tenifer Barrels. Nitride is the Eco-Nazi less toxic US version of Tenifer.

    Yes, I understand that.

    What I'm interested in in A-B comparisons of hardchromed barrels vs nitrided barrels. Multiple barrels in each configuration, same firing schedules, bore scopes and quantifiable analysis of wear and damage.

    The closest I've seen is this document: www.dtic.mil/cgi-bin/GetTRDoc?AD=ADA440938

    But that's referencing artillery systems and tank guns. Some effects don't scale 100%.
