    I love mine, picked it up ~2 months ago.

    If you are going to get one, get it from Tanners (checkout gun broker) for $1275. It is the old optic, but you can take that off and drop on an aimpoint for the PRICE of the Trirail w/o the optic. Moral of the story: Trirail is a waste of money.

    Oh, and SBR it. I will be filing paperwork come January :o

    I wouldn't mind owning one some day. Not really at the top of my list though as they're kinda pricey.

    It is a NFA item. You have to buy the normal (or you can buy a SBR'ed from CMMG), file the paperwork, then get your barrel shortened.

    The terminal ballistics of the round suck so I'd never use it for anything more than a range toy and I don't think I could justify the gun or the price of its ammo (and iffy reloading) for a range toy. Gimme one for free and I think I'd have a blast.

    Eh, it's an interesting toy, but I wasn't especially impressed with the ones that I handeled (both P-90 and PS versions). If it works for you, go for it, but I'd rather spend money on that MP5 clone that came out recently (MK5?)

    Fun to shoot, a guy at the range let fire a few rounds out of his. I'd get one if they weren't so expensive.

    I love mine. Though it can get pricey to shoot. I got the tax stamp about a month ago and I'm just waiting on the CMMG 10.3" barrel.

    That would mean I would have to spend money on equipment and take time to do it.

    My friend has one, and I've shot it on a few occasions.

    Neat.... But kinda useless IMO. The factory optic sucks, and ammo is expensive. Struck me as being a very expensive niche range toy.

    If you had the unlimited money cheat code, it probably would be fun supressed as a SBR.

    i don't see how it is expensive at $0.35 a round, it is the less than 223 and a tad bit more than .45

    I don't think there's anything that the PS90 does that my AR can't do.
