This could be very easily fixed with selective use of advanced composite materials. I found nearly a 0. What is the average weight of these rifles? Besides the awesome looks of it, getting down to the nitty gritty I can see that it could quite possibly be very rigid, solid, and strong. You will give up useful barrel life, or you may have to spend time forming brass from other parent cases.
