Went to the range with Charles St.George yesterday. His Leader 50 rifle is a ten-shot semi-auto bullpup that is light enough at 17 pounds to be fired off-hand if necessary. Recoil is very similar in character and force to M1 Garand. The version shown isn’t the final production variant but it already impressed me as very useful. A matching reflex sound suppressor has been designed for it.
What sets this gun apart from others I’ve seen is the compact form, relatively light weight and genuinely free-floated barrel. Nothing touches the barrel except the receiver — the gas system is ingenious and gets away from any close clearances as well. The rifle will be produced by Micor.
