Not a great sign that they are already knocking 500 off the base price. I don't see anyone, even B&T collectors really jumping on these.

Is $2500 a good price for a 5.56 pistol, even if made by B&T?
I am not much in this style of pistols, but it still looks like "drane na zhivo" to me.

It‘s way overpriced for just a 5.56 pistol, which you can get a decent one for $700 or so, but this isn’t a normal DI AR pistol. It’s a Haenel CR223, which was meant to compete in the tender to replace the G36. It’s sort of similar to the HK416, and it’s a piston gun like the 416, so you really can’t compare it to something like a PSA pistol. That said, I’m not sure how popular this is.

I understand it is with a piston. I do not know how much of an improvement that would be on a pistol - I do not have much experience over there.
As for B&T and PSA - I understand the dramatic difference between the two. Even putting them in the same sentence feels wrong. :)

Wish it was Mlok however they did get two things great:
1) QD detach
2) rail on top and bottom - where I want them

If you really want to hang something on the side HK has keymod rail on close out at the HK webshop.
Wish BT still had the 45° hand stop.

I hate AU, terrible people. Won't do business with them again. Showed MLOK Handguards, sold Keymod. Cool gun, very quality but won't swap out MLOK accessories for a single Keymod rail, hence why I sold mine.

I think I said this before but I think it bears repeating - Haenel has top & bottom rail. Side rails are not particularly comfortable - hence rail covers by HK, FN & BT.
If you want something on the side (which I do not) just add a keymod rail or two - which happen to be on close out pricing from HK - Primary Arms has them for like $25.

Though they took care of me later, my issue with them is that they shipped me two uppers in an unpadded box, and as a result they were beat up in transit.

I'm curious as to what their actual cost is on these. They certainly would have been more collectible if Haenel kept the contract.

For 2500 there are plenty of custom AR companies I would much rather order through at that price point.
Triarc, Radian, Type-A, Cobalt Kinetics to name a few. Seems that haenel and the bt15 are not popular in the us market like HK.
