Im with the vman all the way. They look just well to tactical from what the original 100 stood for. If I want a pup, Ill go for one from a manufacture that started off with pups [within reason]. The foreign or Yank stuff.
Bangin working parts, obvs, but the 100, dare I say, was never ment to be a pup. They just caught on to the craze hitting the market and gone "shit, we best make a pup!, lets just drop what is about perfect closer the shoulder... lets make it shiny and black, [like one of vmans love honey toys ] and mould it around the palm."
But what would of been mint, is if they didnt. And just stood by and watched. And maybe, made a new, revised full length sporter... a subtle twist on the grain if you will. Or even a new springer, jeeeeez, when will that happen from any of the manufacturers. Something from HW that will take note of perhaps the Pro Elite/Sport from AA. Something so on point, its like, bloody hell, they understand the principles of shooting... without a life tank. Maybe even the next step of unlimited shots, without the need for stripping A NEW RIFLE DOWN and tekin out the parts [thats Ive just paid for] to make something better.
Thinking about it, what am I actually paying for when it comes to buying a HW... the framework basically. Cos its gay inside. AA's arent like that.
