    Perfect for providing surpressing fire for squirrels. :rolleyes: :D

    How much is a FA lower these days, anyway?

    Eventually, I think we'll see mostly belt-feds for things like this, being that the magazine capacity is whatever you want it to be.


    As as sidenote, I've been working on a belt-fed shotgun. I swear they stole my idea of nylon links. :neener:

    This is the greatest thing I have seen all day. The top cover is a modified design from their miniature 1919. I hope it is affordable, but I am not holding my breath.

    Oh my gosh I just realized something..... :banghead:


    I can scale the 1919 belt feeding design since it's old enough to be "public domain" if you will. Duh. A .223 or .308 upper (beltfed) would also be possible, then. Yay! :)

    quote "WOW that would be a really sweet gun to own even in the Semi auto version."

    It is only a top end, right? It can go on any AR lower I would imagine, semi auto or full, whatever you happen to have. Though I can certainly see how "rock 'n' roll" would make a REAL fun plinker.

    You need to change out the buffer with the provided "rimfire" buffer to use it, so it's not quite just swapping the uppers. Close, though.

    Does it fire from an open bolt? Any belt-fed 22LR gun would really need to.

    During my teenage years I discovered that if you fire off about four 50-round Ruger 10/22 mags in quick succession you will lead the barrel up to the point that it nearly chokes.....
