What operating system does this rifle use? Login/Join

The author refers to it as short stroke piston, but it looks like long stroke to me, just with a very short op rod. If I am correct, how does this design do anything special? Seems like it would dump excess gas into the receiver. How do y'all interpret this? Weird gun either way.

Pretty sure it is a short-stroke.

The gas tube feeds into a gas block with a short piston. It operates the short piston which smacks the long piston/op rod that's attached to the BCG.

Ian from Forgotten Weapons also describes it as short stroke (starting around 6:30 into the video):

Good video, as always, where he shows the actuation of the piston and bolt. 15mm of piston travel, according to him.

Ah! I see. I was right in thinking there was no room for a piston in that block. Clever.

On a side note, I was kind of excited about this rifle but somewhat lost interest after finding out that the U.S. version comes with a plastic lower receiver as opposed to alloy that the original has.

Seems like a strange choice seeing that tooling up for injection molding isn't exactly all that cheap either.
