    Is that really any different than SIG and some of their legacy rifles? Need a replacement part? "Oops, sorry, we don't support that item any longer".

    I note that Beretta owns Sako, so there may be some commonality here:

    I would buy one.
    98% Sarcastic. 100% Overthinking things and making up reasons for buying a new firearm.

    Probably good for them.

    For US market needs a folding stock option, adjustable gas regulator, not be too expensive, and be pretty accurate to have a chance to sell well.

    And that's assuming the typical items pass muster. Like a good or replaceable trigger group, reliability, decent finish, good mag combatability, etc.

    Too bad it uses an AR style charging handle location.

    What do you predict this would cost here in comparison to the Sig MCX in which it copies? If I had to bet, it wouldn't be any less expensive... Probably more.

    I'm not Ron3 but NOTHING is getting cheaper or less expensive, so I'd say at least as expensive if not more.

    Yep, but at least Beretta tends to make guns that work out of the box. SIG hasnít done that in awhile.

    Then they abandon it. I bought two, cause I learned my lesson with the MSAR.

    Exactly, I just don't see this thing being brought out over here since it's already here under the Sig branding and it just can't compete on price.

    In the "it's time for a new service rifle" department, Taiwan is joining that club:

    "The entirely domestically developed and built rifle features numerous improvements over the existing T91 and T65K2 models, said Lieutenant Lee Chien-ting (李建霆), who is involved in the research and development of the rifle at the bureau.

    The barrel of the XT112 rifle is polygonal and thickened compared with the T91 and T65K2 models, resulting in the XT112's improved accuracy of groups of 9.8 cm at 100 m compared to the T91's groups of 14.5 cm at 100 m, Lee said.

    The barrel also boasts a longer life expectancy of 10,000 rounds, compared with 6,000 rounds with previous models.

    In addition, the selector lever, the magazine release button, and cocking handle latch, are present on both sides of the XT112 to allow easy access regardless of the user's dominant hand, whereas on the previous models they are only present on one side, he said."

    The mag in the pictured rifle appears to be the same (Taiwan-made) mag sold here under the UTG Leapers brand, but in a FDE color:
