  1. Where are the bells and whistles? Can’t have a modern military weapon without at least one whistle and four tiny bells.

  2. My god. Is there some kind of “who can design the ugliest gun” contest that Russia keeps holding to select their rifles?

    Chris, If SKAR doesn’t pan out as a name they can call it the SCAT.

  3. i think some people are applying western sense of aesthetic here. I’d say its about as pretty as a bottle of unopened, low end potato vodka. sexy as a Siberian grandma. (btw, i would DEFINITELY, buy one.)

  4. Well if were talkin aesthetics the AK-47 is the ugliest weapon around but it can be submerged in water, buried in sand and still put 30+1 rounds down range without a hiccup and has for 60+ years, i”ll take that over any pretty little piston operated AR any day
