Anyone interested in communicating with Ruslan Chumak? I can translate questions. He was not only historian but weapon designer that worked at TsNIITochmash developing underwater guns.

Dean Speir covered this over at "The Gun Zone" back when it happened in 2001.

The company plans to initially make 250 rifles with the estimated start of delivery being the Spring of 2019. The MSRP is $1,250. St. George Arms is currently taking 50% deposits. You can preorder the rifle on the company’s Gun Broker page.

Lol, preordering a firearm.

They did a phenomenal job with the m17.

Will probably be the case.
I doubt there'll be much interest in a repro of a previously unsuccessful design. Especially at that price point.
If it were a modernised Leader (done right, not like the MPAR), then the MSRP would be warranted.

      There are many who feel that the 5.56 NATO is a superlative rifle round. Much has been said about larger alternatives to 5.56, such as various 6.5mm and 6.8mm rounds among others. Less has been said about smaller rounds. Off the top of my head, I can recall that there was a German 4.6x36mm round, used in the HK36, and the British 4.85x49mm round. Neither of these rounds managed to gain widespread acceptance. My knowledge of the voodoo that is ballistics is somewhat limited, so I'm uncertain as to whether these failures were caused by flaws with the rounds themselves, or because they were below some lower limit of effective bullet size, beyond which performance decreases rapidly. Could we see a resurgence of these concepts in the future, or do they represent an evolutionary dead-end?
