Larry, Please give some more details (ie, does it have an adjustable gas system, reliability, etc.). If I can make a few suggestions...add a Picatinny rail to the top of the receiver, bring back the forward handgrip a bit, and (MOST important) get a Patent. Keep us posted! [heavy]

Can you get a postban model?
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 7:22:03 AM EDT
I thought AW's had detachable magazines, and a pistol grip. If a weapon is an AW it can't have FS, or bayonet lug, unless it was an AW prior to 9/13/94. Am I close to right on this?? Bueller.....Bueller... Bueller?? If this won't take a mag it isn't an assault weapon therefore a FS is OK. I think ???

Since links could be considered as a magazine, If you were to put a belt fed upper on a post ban model you could be asking for trouble ie: I would not recommend it!!!

Actually the belt for a beltfed is considered a magazine, therefore the AW ban of '94 is applicable.

GET THAT MUTHA F**KA INTO PRODUCTION!!!! INEEEEEEDONE!!!!

You could do away with the FS and the belt fed should be OK! id buy one.
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 8:11:16 AM EDT
Awesome looking gun!!
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 9:48:25 AM EDT
That is one mean looking gun! [:P]
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 11:02:50 AM EDT
Ok now the suspense is really killin me.... When will it be available? And how much?? Got myself a bunch of 223 links and ammo ready for use. [:P] Would it be too much to ask to see if you can make an adapter that fits in the mag well that you can attach the plastic box the SAW belts comes in. Now that would be a big bonus!!! [whacko]
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 11:09:26 AM EDT
the voice in my head that told me to stay home from work today and clean my guns is commanding me to have this "....must have belt fed!" steve just when i thought - ya' know - i don't need to spend anymore money on guns for a while.....me likey, me likey alot!
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 11:19:50 AM EDT
I want one to put on my M16. That thing looks awsome. If I am right it looks like a copy of the M60 gas system. What about the feed tray assy? does it fire from an open bolt. I want more INFO!!!!!!

Seems like a fair trade off to me. I would just put a cavcomp on it. How much for a postban?
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 2:12:53 PM EDT
You guys are NO FUN. Well those pesky AW rules with their "ammunition feeding devices"...Rats
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 4:03:02 PM EDT
Will someone confirm that if there is no flash suppressor that it can be sold in postban configuration?
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 4:05:31 PM EDT
Don't hold your breath. I'd be happy as pie if it comes out, but I doubt it.

What if you only link ten rounds or less at a time??? [:D]
Link Posted: 6/6/2001 6:04:10 PM EDT
I'm guessing that if you replace the flash hider with a muzzle brake or just crown it, you could still put a belt-feed conversion on your post ban gun, and be legal. Actually, I will bet you money on it. How else can companies like US Ordnance sell semi-auto M60's and M2's? Those are belt fed... I have heard the BS about using no more than 10-rd belts at a time... Yeah, right. Maybe in CA or at an ATF barbeque, but most here (and I know I would) would be linking rounds into the hundreds. Havoc says: post-ban belt-fed OK.

acually, yes. thats how it works. i guess if the links are preban you can link away, but if they new, you can onlt have them 10 rds long.

Only if there are more than 10 links in a box. [;)] I really would like to see a belt-fed like this one get on the market. So far, every proposal was just someone talking out of their a$$. Shrike, the MG-34 upper, the RPD. I don't know what the problem is, because any belt-fed uppers for under $2k would sell like hotcakes. Someone put this thing into production.

FOR SALE: Links galore ! (marked Law Enforcement only) CHEAP ! [bounce]

That is one super-sweet upper. When/if they become availible, I'm IN.
