I'm eager to see this thing come to the civilian market. Gas-piston system, hammer-forged chrome-lined barrel, the general quality that FNH is known for....there is a lot that separates this from the rest of the .308 semi-auto crowd.
Of course, I'll want to see want the final MSRP is. And I'm a little confused as to why FNH is sticking with a 1:12 twist rate, when most newer .308 bolt guns have realized the advantage lies with 1:11 or 1:10. But the 17s got rave reviews, despite the barrel twist rate...I assume that the Mk 20 should get similar praise.
Can someone explain to me the exact differences between this and the Mk 20? Besides longer barrel?
