Default Taurus CT G2

Hello, does anyone have any knowledge of these carbines? I see Sportsmans Supply in Butler has them for sale on their auction pages. Can't really find any reviews for this Taurus platform online. Looks like a cool little carbine. Any thoughts?

I've actually never heard of any for sale yet. These looked interesting when thay debuted them but I have not seen one for sale anywhere yet. I would think the major draw back would be finding mags for it, since it is still new and takes a propritary mag. It also is a little heavy for a pistol caliber carbine at @ 9lbs. Personally I might get one some day but I would wait until accsessories are more readilly available.

I may be wrong on the weight then. I thought I remembered them being heavier when I read about them.
