Manael/Ignition Engineering used to make one for the TSPX chassis by SCSA which would be compatible with this rifle, but they have been out of stock for awhile now.

Folding telescopic 300bo and it's a shut up and take my money rifle.

I have no interest in an "AR style" pump, bolt-action or other action. If we were allowed to own a semi-auto AR I'd buy one in a heartbeat.

Apparently a .300blk is in the works according to SCSAs facebook page, definitely would be interested in one myself.

I've put down a deposit for one of these. I've wanted a pump action 223 ever since I've had a licence. But I never liked the 7615 and other options have always been thin on the ground. I handled a warwick and an oceania precision at cleavers. They were both very nice, but the warwick I found too heavy for what I wanted. The oceania precision was exactly what I wanted as far as weight/size, but no FABA kit seems to available. And they're both a stretch for my budget. Oceania is supposedly coming out with a pump of their own, but I'm not holding my breath for that, and the price will surely be similar to the current straight pulls.

The SCSA should fall somewhere in between the warwick and the oceania weight wise, as far as I can tell without laying my eyes and hands on one. The price is much easier to stomach than the other two.

On top of that, I'm absolutely tickled pink that we know have multiple companies, in 2022, having a go at making some interesting and somewhat unique firearms that make the most of the situation with our silly laws.

Yep I agree, especially because we can't import similar rifles made overseas. I'm interested to see how Oceania and especially Warwick will react when the Taipan is actually available in stores (Any day now, hopefully), considering it's supposed to be coming in at half the cost of a WFA1 w/ FABA kit.

I think these are in a few shops now. Not my local shops though.
Anyone actually had a look and handle of one??

It looks like something out of "Starship Troopers", but I'm feeling a bit of an attraction. Probably the closest I'd get to my old Mini 14 back in the day. Not sure about the straight trigger but - I wonder if it's replaceable.
The pen may be mightier than the sword, but personally I prefer the .30/30 Winchester.

There’s one at my local now. I might get in for a look soon. I’m tossing up between one of these and a 223 BLR.

I managed to get in and check the Taipan out today. The tactical look isn’t usually my thing, but the gun was definitely nice. Nicely balanced, smooth to cycle, pretty impressed really. Would be a pain to give the barrel a wipe down though, with having to remove the chassis forend and pump set up. Almost bought one, but still trying to decide between the Taipan and a BLR. Hmmm….the decisions we have to make.
