    I'm all for innovation but that is ugly as shit. Must have a retarded centre of balance too if you have to carry it like old mate in the picture there...

    Yep agreed. It seems there's several new rifle models going for this design style.

    I'll take a classic sporter style any day.

    Ima get behind something solid while YOU shoot your warm loads using this.
    There's loads of aluminium receiver rifles. AR15s, BLRs, the Seekins Havak Element, bat machine make aluminium bench rest actions, blasers. The strength is really only required in the barrel, the bolt head and the front portion of the receiver/ barrel extension. Easy to just use steel for these bits

    Looking at the video I don't really see anything really innovative except grabbing pieces from existing designs. But that's not to say that's a bad thing but I think it's gone a bit overboard with shit like the leather.

    Just to double up on this line of thought, presumably Gunwerks is monitoring this thread by now:
    A user switch barrell will be most useful if you can change applications with significantly different cartridges in the same action size. For example, 204 / 223 / 224valkyrie / 6mmARC / 6.5 Grendel / 300BLK sub/ 50 Beowulf. Another example would be 257AI / 7x57 / 8x57. Could a local gunsmith make up a barrell for you in your favoyrite eccentric chambering ?
    Another point is that the magazine, feed and ejection ought to have some tolerance for varying cartridges, particularly different bullet weights that need to be fed by the mag spring (eg 80 gr 243 to 180 gr 308).
