"Some guns look relatively harmless. Some guns look businesslike. Some guns look ugly. Some guns look elegant, and some guns look just plain downright wicked..." Alistair MacClean from his novel Ice Station Zebra. The Polish make Kbs wz. Beryl looks just plain downright wicked neh. It looks like a great gun to awe and unsettle an adversary. It shoots really far for a rifle of this caliber, out to 1000 meter. Btw, the word Beryl, means Beryllium in Polish. In purify form Beryllium is one of the most toxic and dangerous substance on Earth. It good name for this rifle.

it good to be able to verify by sight how much ammo is left in mag, but there are other, better way to do this than with an all polymer mag.
