It is actually quite low. With a riser you will be fine.
I had hoped they would do an air-through stock, but if anything this actually gives a more stable firing platform as it braces the grip as well. I am still undecided but do want to try it out. Some of my team mates also also expressed interest in this design.
They have been very very clear though, if the marker is received well, then more will come. (I believe that was at minimum expressed in that German interview).
