Mish Mash of Swiss and Swiss Hybrids

It's to solicit responses both good and bad. When you take these out of their hiding places (hidden from you know who), you just take the opportunity to let them take a pose (It's a workout to take them out for maintenance). The KH9 suggested that we do a confused arrangement this time around.

Can I ask for a little education?

Top level, middle/upper left most muzzle? What is that?

It's a Brugger & Thomet (B&T) KH9, a modernized version of the SITES Spectre (which I think is Italian). Here's a picture.

Thanks.

I probably would have recognized the SPECTRE since I always wanted one. The Swiss one seems to be boxier and less streamlined. I will check it out.

Just thinking that I always like the look of the Italian sportscars but I drive a German one since I want it to work.

P.S. - Nice MPX! Do you like the retractable "arm-brace"?

I hide it from the person I share a bank account with!
It feels the same as the original retractable stock. It accomplishes making the firearm more compact but it never feels as good as a regular stock.

Brother marcoc, do you have connections or any relation with SIG? Please tell us when they will be selling the SIG Classic in .308, as discussed on the SIG Forum? I think it is the SIG 751,

Thanks,
Jarhead
