    Picked one up at the buckeye classic today. The gun feels amazing other than the distance from the grip to the trigger. You need really long fingers to comfortably reach the trigger even with it adjusted all the way back. BYG

    I'll have to agree with the above, but I don't agree with the "outrageous" word.

    A MSRP of around 2000. would attract more buyers IMO.

    It will be interesting to see how they perform in the future.



    Regards.....Gerald

    It will be VERY interesting to see how they hold up, coming from Fab.

    Looking forward to the reviews.

    Caesar Guerini bought out Fabrique and is now Fabarms owned completely by CG.

    And CG is using their technology in building an automatic trapgun, when they will come out w/a release trigger for it is still open.

    Here is an initial review of the Fabarm gun, looks like it is a hell of a semi auto. Going to have to start saving my pennies for a black 32" version. Looks like a lot of shooters don't think they are overpriced as the first shipment is close to sold out according to Fabarms Facebook page.
