Is a rotating barrel more accurate than the Browning tilt design? I gotta believe feeding alternatives to ball ammo may be an issue.
These days, with the browning lock mature as hell, I am not sure there's any difference in things like accuracy.
It could be made with a lower boreline, which is always better, and appears to be.
Only other distinct advantage I recall for rotating barrels is that primary extraction involves twisting so you get a more effective breakaway force, much as it does with a rotating bolt.
ETA: Is it 100g lighter than a G17-5 or am I not getting apples-to-apples weight comparison?
