Interchangeable calibers w/o tools, including 10mm and 5.7x28mm :D

A interesting concept. Hope it materializes and works out. Reminds me of the Brugger and Thomet GHM9 crossed with Tec-9. Looks like more and more companies are starting to look at marketing similar carbine designs due to the popularity of the CZ Scorpion.

I understand the quick barrel change after seeing the barrel lug, didn't quite understand the bolt and mag change procedure.

Forgot to add; I don't prefer any kind of caliber conversions; you always give up advantages/edge when you try to be a jack of all trade/master of none. That holds true with firearms... it's rarely worth it in the end and much more efficient to just buy a completely separate platform designed for that caliber.

Having to switch b/t a bunch of bolts/magwells/bbls... in the end you usually end up just using one configuration and the conversation kits just collect dust.

Still waiting for the roller-lock 10m... not a fan of blowback PCC.

Hey now, I like my AR conversions - one lower & 3 uppers (for now) :D ARs are easy in that respect - pull out the pins, switch out uppers, push pins back in - done.

In a gun like this though, I wouldn't think you'd be looking to 'master' anything just have multiple play options. My opinion anyway...
However, if looking to master, I'd follow Blue's advice.

Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

It still looks interesting though.

Can’t imagine going between 10mm and 5.7x28mm on the same platform. Don’t think you would have to worry about keeping your mags separate like the .300blk. Lol
