Now I'm feeling a need to drop $200 on mine...
myself into the G17 SBR. Honestly, the more I think about it, the more it sounds like a pretty good idea...
Seriously, I should have thought about this years ago. I'll have to start poking around for a folding front grip and stock, though. Should be a fun project. Certainly keep us posted on the 300BLK project, too!
wanted the shorter slide for something...
Edit: on the other hand, you could do the same thing in reverse with a G17. Buy a G35 slide assembly, convert to .357 SIG, and rock out with your Glock out.
Yeah, I hear ya'. It's just so much more tempting when you're sitting there staring at the stupid thing, thinking to yourself, "You know, $200 and 6 months from now, I could have a brand new toy to play with!"
Zoogster makes some very valid points, that go along with AlexanderA's points earlier. Perception can make a huge difference.
If you end up in a trial and your choice of firearm is brought to Jury, then you can find yourself in a dirty situation, no matter what the outcome.
Definately worth the food for thought. Thanks Guys.
And now that's what I'll be thinking. Thanks a lot.
Takes standard AR mags and the barrel is threaded 1/2-28mm same as an AR-15.
They do not. And there is very little parts commonality between the two.
the manual with with parts breakdown on page 7 of 12, I see no serious issues with re-barreling. If there is no plastic formed to hold things in place that would be damaged or destroyed by removing the barrel, any competent gunsmith ought to be able to handle it.
They are coming out with a .300 blk model so it would follow that they would make a D version of it. Who knows how long that will take though.
You know, one of these in .458 SOCOM SBR'ed would be fun!
If you're serious, the thread that mgregg85 linked to is a good read. Technically, it's well above my skill level as a 'garage gunsmith,' but I found some interesting stuff in there.
If that is your idea of "fun", I shudder to think what would make you frown. ;-)
AAC announced at shot that it will be available for LEO and Military later this year. Expecting civilian sales next year. Sorry. I've been eying this thing for MONTHS and very chance I get I badger AAC to make them available. No joy for at least 2 years.
I'll be waiting.....
Until then, I do have enough toys to keep me occupied!
I read it last night, it was quite interesting and DEFINITELY above my skill level as well.
