Appears to be made for carbine length barrels, but is on a 20 inch with the gas system removed.  Upper receiver looks to be an A2 with the carry handle machined off and the rail roll pinned to the upper.  Has a built in rear sight and spot for a front sight post, but it's missing.  I assume there are more parts missing as well.  Lower seems to be just a random one that has nothing to do with the upper, and neither upper or lower has any parts installed.  

Hoping somebody out there knows what this thing is!

I don't know what it is, but it looks like it has potential to be awesome. Maybe hack up an SIR to fit?

Pretty sure I found it, page 16 of this pdf: https://ndiastorage.blob.core.usgovcloudapi.net/ndia/2006/smallarms/swan.pdf

I might try contacting ARMS and see if they want to buy it back since it's serial number 5 lol

That’s probably worth a good amount of money to the right buyer.

@Minky

The upper does look to have been an A2, but with "Field" rear sight, like the Canadian C7 first used.  Also, a brief explanation of this setup appears in THE BLACK RIFLE II, in the aftermarket section, if you have that book.

Neat.  It looks like it uses standard M4/CAR handguards mounted sideways.
