As you can probably see from the forums listings, I've reorganized the M17S section to highlight that K&M Arms is introducing the M17S556 (with additional calibers to soon follow...)

These new all aluminum chassis Bullpups are going out soon!  It is a testiment to Ken's hard work, and true proof that Bullpups can have a great trigger!!

Congrats to K&M Arms!!

Production shipments will start rolling out the door next week.  After a couple bumps in the road with a barrel supplier I am now back on track and everything is lined up for shipping.  There will be some in stock in the next 2 weeks or you can still reserve your spot with a deposit.

Are M17s gonna be available at local level or will they need to be directly ordered from K&M?

Just picked my new M17S556 up from my local gun dealer. Looks & feels great. Much lighter than my Bushmaster M17S. I will report back after I get to take it to the range.

I put 300 rounds thru it at lunch. It shot great. Best trigger feel of any of my bullpup rifles. Also breaks down for cleaning very easy. Tried four different brands of magazines and only had 1 jam, it was an old surplus metal magazine. I am very happy with the quality and function of the rifle.

Here are a couple of pictures. It came with a very nice discreet soft case.

If possible, give us a comparison against the Tavor.

Thanks!

Went up to the range yesterday with the M17s.  I put a Nikon 6-18x40 scope on it to test some loads
for accuracy.  There were no failures to feed, fire, extract or eject. The wind was gusting from about 5 to
15 mph. The best group at 100 yds was .80". The worst was about 2". All loads were either 55 grain FMJ
or 53 grain Sierra HP Match. The best groups were obviously shot with the Sierra bullets. The loads were
not anywhere near max. I chronographed all shots and will load some a bit hotter for the next trip.
As far as a comparison with the Tavor, I have handled one that a friend owns but never shot it.
The Tavor is not convenient to mount a light on unless you use one that has an adhesive pressure switch.
On the M17s,  you can mount one on the rail on the left side of the upper and the push button switch is
easy to reach with your thumb, while still maintaining your hand on the grip. As far as triggers are concerned,
much has been written about the trigger pull on the Tavor, none of it good that I have read. The trigger
on my M17s is awsome, light and smooth. The Tavors plastic chassis works, obviously,  but I do not like
the look of it, IMHO. The M17s looks badass, will look better with an Eotech than with the huge Nikon.
It was definitely worth the wait!

Does your new M17S556 sport the 3-lug triangular Breech Bolt?  If so, a pic of the Bolt face would be appreciated. Thanks.

It does as promised! Also if you check out my facebook page you will see one that is left handed.  I have fired it and it works just like the right hand version.
