I have shot a Super Black Eagle since they came out in the 90's, and when I heard the rumor....well. Bit lighter, sleeker. More ergonomically friendly. Points better( I do not find myself having to look up on the rib, the sight picture is dead on now). I will actually shoot Sunday. Also, you can put a sling on it leave it on, and still be able to unscrew the mag cap with out tearing up the finish.
