One day I will have a semi auto .308 of some form. But I really really like the idea of a bullpup for that purpose. I like the idea anyway but especially for a .308 where I'd like to keep the barrel length up for more reliable groups down range, but with the overall length of the weapon is more manageable. I don't know if .458 is ranked anywhere up on my priority list :)

We'd all like to have both of everything :)

But yes, the RFB is exactly the one I've been lusting after from afar. For a "brush gun" I do have a Browning BLR in .308 (lightweight takedown) that's comfortable and works very well for that purpose, but it's so damn pretty I hate to actually get it scratched up. Though that is what I'm taking hunting tomorrow morning. I'll just not be using it to push branches out of the way...

You think you'd put a suppressor and reflex sight on a 19? At that point why not just a 17?

I guess that makes sense.

Is there a difference between them, other than caliber?
