Word on the street is that JTactical took my advice and reduced the weight of their 2nd generation Rogue conversion kit, unfortunately they only reduced it by a few ounces (less than a pound) - not enough to make a meaningful difference, but it's a step in the right direction... the 2nd generation Rogue kit is still more than a pound HEAVIER than a SAGE Mod 1 stock.
The ROGUE bullpup conversion, in my opinion, may be a decent range toy rifle set-up,
but it has no place in a working rifle role. The SAGE EBR is a better choice in a working rifle role.
IMHO, the worst thing about JTactical/Juggernaut Tactical is their total lack of professionalism... they are dishonest.
The Rogue conversion kit is an interesting option for a few owners of the M14/M1A rifle. The kit attempts to transform the basic service rifle into a modern day, multi-purpose Close-Quarter Battle Sniper rifle. It's bullpup configuration attempts to do this by moving the rifle action 11.75 inches closer to the users body. This may sound good on paper, but the design ends up transforming a once well balanced rifle with good, user friendly ergonomics into a heavy unbalanced rifle with most of the weight distributed to the rear... mag changes become slow & problematic and the bullpup configuration is not user friendly to left handed shooters.
