What's this? A fixed barrel, split slide pistol with swappable top rail? Supposedly gas operated?

  Here's what I mean with swappable top rail.

Hmm, that's interesting. That's about as low as you can make the bore axis, but you still have some recipricating mass above the shooter's hand. So, we'll see how it works out. Like 3 years from now.

Looks super neat. I hope it catches on but gas operated pistols haven't so far, so...

Before I knew it was gas operated, I imagined it being some sort of on-its-head tilting action, like your typical short-recoil pistol action but turned upside down somehow so that the rear of the barrel is pivoted up instead of down during unlocking.

I wonder if they could use a rotating barrel system like the Beretta PX4.

I shot a PX4 and found it unremarkable. Pretty much identical to any other polymer frame hammer fired gun.

Plenty of options for the action, but it's a testament to Browning's prowess that most guns use a derivative of his system. From delayed blowback like the Avenger was (https://www.m1911.org/hogueavenger.htm) to the roller locked Korth PRS (https://kortharms.com/de/pistol-prs-5.html), there were plenty of options for fixed barrels.
I find it odd that they'd go for gas operated, but I'm curious about it anyway.

It's a fixed barrel. A rotating barrel would ruin that idea.

I have never had a good experience with the PX4. I played with one that when you engaged the safety, half the time the hammer did not decock (although the concept of carrying a cocked and locked Beretta was amusing). The last time I fired one (about 3 months ago) I had several stoppages, mainly failure to extract.
