I like that Patrol model a lot. Very cool. Will be interested to see the accuracy.

Don't know how accurate that is that they have already been shipped to a gun store. I have a friend that is a sales distributor and will be pushing these into most of the gun tires in the Texas and Oklahoma area. He works for a third party company that sells Vortex and just about all the big name companies to the smaller gun stores. He told me 2 weeks ago that they won't be in stores until after SHOT show.

I will be at shot in a couple weeks and will see what they have on display. The guy swears he saw the dealer pull it out of the box to log it into their system and those pics are right after it was unboxed...Could be a clever photoshop. SHOT will tell me for sure...

The biggest ditributor in the nation doesn't show them in inventory yet. I would imagine that these won't be available till after SHOT show.

I'm not terribly impressed, but it might be ok for a range/plinking gun. Based on the info and pics from the link, putting "patrol" in the name may be a bit overly optimistic.

It's overpriced if that's the only possible uses. A $400-$500 DPMS or S&W would work just fine.

Seems like a cool idea, but the 308 and 6.5CM versions of this would get really expensive to shoot, really fast.
