Well, the forend I don't like. It's the same front end as a PX4 Storm, which I don't like. If Benelli would have put a 4 rail picatinny forend on it, that would have been better. A picatinny top rail is needed too.
As far as better than a standard AR, it depends on what you're using as a litmus test. The MR1 is significantly more reliable than standard gas tube operated ARs with it's short-stroke twin gas piston ARGO system.

This MR1 is just the first incarnation. It should be available in multiple configurations at some point, or so I've heard rumors.
