This is a very nice little gun, OK, not so little:

Chambered in 9 mm and possibly having the least recoil I ever experienced in a “carbine.” And I apologize for not remembering what kind of can has attached, but I am still getting used to shooting guns with them and enjoying the novelty too much.

There are plenty of reviews online so I won’t bore you with specs and it is too early for me to go chasing links. I can tell you it felt very comfortable and it was insanely accurate for a rifle-based pistol. Not a very light gun, but I did not feel it was too heavy, specially compared to a Kriss Vector which is the belle of the ball according to some.

I was told the price for this model/version (less can & red dot) was about $1,100 which does not make it cheap, but it is not unexpected as it looks and feel very well built. No alcoholic monkeys were used in the production of this weapon.

  1. “Shooting with Oleg” has been known to cause suppressoritis.

    The only cure for suppressoritis is… Well there’s no cure. But the treatment is suppressors of your own, so go ahead and start the process before the suppressoritis becomes unbearable

  2. There have been some pretty good sales on the ‘bogs recently, from Rainier Arms and Global Ordnance (who I believe are the US importers). And GP just released 30-rnd curved magazines, supposed to be more reliable than the straight stick mags.

  3. The A2 version is cheaper but uses a simple blow back bolt.
    It’s also a nice shooting gun but for some reason roller delayed actions are supreme in 9mm.

    Not so much in bigger calibres 😀

    1. It’s because the action sucks.

      I had both a G3 and a CETME. They use fluted chambers to ease extraction. Blows a whopping shitload of gas into the action. A couple of rounds on rapid fire and your eyes and nose will be burning. Makes shooting and AR with a can almost pleasant by comparison. Also the recoil of the G3 is worse than the FAL or even the M14 (same era and caliber).

      It was invented by some ex-Nazi engineers who helped design the roller locked system of the MG42. They discovered that they could simplify the roller locking mechanism and crested the roller delay blowback.

      It works in 9mm because it’s a marginal improvement over a straight blowback (gun engineer’s dirty secret, if you take the rollers out of an MP5, it still works as a straight blowback with not much change in performance).

      I have no love for the action. Its overly complicated for what it gives you but people love it because H&K.
