What frustrates me most is "new" models are just a face lift of old ones, very little is being done on R+D with very few completely new or genuinely improved designs having been made in years. The work myself and many others do has convinced me that should one of them bother to do some proper R+D then we could be shooting much better rifles.
Most gun companies are no longer run by their founders, the passion, knowledge and design skills are no longer there. To me rifles are about how they perform, face lifted models are made to capture people with looks, while I know looking good is nice, that alone doesn't do it for me! But the manufacturers seem to be making a nice business out of it so I don't expect them to change anytime soon!
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!
