Remember guys, those reports from the Shot Show of how nice the NP2 was came from shooting two hand made
prototypes. I wouldn't want to bet that the actual production models will have the same feel to the shot cycle or trigger.
BTW, the barrel isn't actually that long. They said that it has a 6" gizmo inside the shroud to help calm the sound. So whatever length that shroud is, subtract about 6" for the actual barrel length. Second pic in this link is the gizmo that's in the shroud.
"You've come far, pilgrim."------"Feels like far."
"Were it worth the trouble?"----"Ah, what trouble?"
