Question Bren Ten interest?

Would any of you be interested in a newly manufactured Bren Ten or, rather, something Bren Ten-ish?

Is there anything about the Bren Ten that you would change?

Yep. Magazines that actually feed the weapon reliably.

EAA makes 10mm handguns based on the CZ-75 that actually function.

Based on the CZ 97b, but visually similar to the Bren Ten.

Magazines and most parts interchangeable with the 97b (so far).

5-inch barrel with gain-twist, multi-radial rifling and tapered bore. Probably 416R. Possibly titanium or S7 over a cobalt alloy liner.

Ambidextrous controls. (Possibly an H.K.-style, paddle, magazine release.)

D.P.M. Systems-designed recoil reduction system featuring flat-wire springs.

Briley, spherical, barrel bushing.

TiN-based coating.

Frame, slide, hammer, trigger, trigger bar, firing pin, and recoil reduction system made from titanium alloy.

Ejector, sear, extractor, and slide stop made from S7 tool steel.

10mm Auto, .45 ACP, .460 Rowland.

Possible factory cut-out for a red dot sight.

I'm not sure what to do about the Bren's integral, rear sight.

Cutrently testing prototypes.

Any input appreciated.

I've heard conflicting reports about the desirability of titanium firing pins. It seems that people love or hate them, and each group has reasons the other group says are just silly.
