1. When
2. How much

It look like a good system, you might want to  include a link to your website on you initial post to make it easier for peopel to see what you offer.

I looked and at your website but I did not see any barrels for sale, do you plan on offering these in the future? are they proprietary? if not where do we get them? especially for the 7.62x51.

this stuff is really next-level...

if you had a magwell to accept FAL mags... i would buy one...

How much does it weigh? With say a 20" gov. A2 or what ever barrel you might have the weight on.  I quess I'm asking if there is a weight penalty.

I have a few ideas I would love to see. However, they're not esssential and I'll remain very enthused about this system reguardless.

A 22LR conversion unit that allows the owner to use Ruger 10/22 magazines. Ammo is getting expensive, and I can't think of a better plinker than an AR15. (Note, I will never buy a 22 kit that uses 10 round magazines, and I refuse to use the Ceiner.) This system has the capability to put all other 22LR conversions to shame.

Mil Spec T marked M1913 rails. This is just nitpicking, but my biggest rail system pet peeve is when the rails receive that additional horizontal cut. I know they save weight, but I find them unnecessarily sharp and uncomfortable. Saving a couple ounces is great, but I personally am not a fan of the trade offs of that process.

Awhile ago you mentioned that rail length would be dictated by add on pieces. So basically the user chose if he wanted carbine, mid length, or rifle length handguards. If my recollection is correct, do you mind me asking how the add on pieces attach?

Keep up the good work. Many people make innovative products, but this is a whole new ball game.

When we get the 7.62x51 kit out there eventually, we'll offer plenty of different barrel lengths and types for it.

We'll need a bit of time to get that kit all ready for market.
We're hoping to have it at the SHOT Show in January.
It's a pretty difficult project and we've been working on it for awhile now.
But we do have rounds going downrange with it, so there's light at the end of the tunnel.

YEAH BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SLUG-O

What kind of repeatability are you aiming for zero wise?  Anything under 1MOA would place me beside myself, but with more parts, I'm curious.

Also, what about using other fixed uppers (thinking of having a very elaborate MGI Lower, with a 5.56 Upper, 7.62 Upper, and matching buffer assemblies

Will you be offering any factory registered SBR/NFA receivers?

Would be nice to not have to mess around with engraving the lower, especially since Tom Sawyer isn't taking new work.

Link Posted: 10/10/2006 12:59:25 PM EST
Thanks for the info TWL. I can't think of any better system to SBR.

These pictures are 10-12 months old....hardly new.

The 308 STILL isn't out?

So whats new?

Any plans for a 9mm mag well? Maybe one that accepts Colt-style 32 round or UZI mags?

Is the modular lower setup in 7.62x39 compatible with standard, non-MGI barreled upper setups (with the modified bolt assy)?

Link Posted: 10/10/2006 4:13:54 PM EST
wow this is really sweet stuff, i like what i am seeing
Link Posted: 10/10/2006 4:22:25 PM EST
Not going to ask smart ass questions or question your goals here. I think it looks awesome and hurry the HELL up with the .308 lower part!
The last AR I will ever need!!!!!
Link Posted: 10/10/2006 4:27:40 PM EST
That's SWEET!!!!!!

I can't wait for the .45 and 9mm versions to come out!
Link Posted: 10/10/2006 4:40:26 PM EST
I'm waiting for the belt fed in 7.62x39!!!!!   Please hurry, as that is when I'll buy the system.

Also, you mentioned an altered bolt carrier?  Do you have a pic?   I'm curious as to whether the "alteration" will affect using a Reg Lightning Link?

Keep up the great work.
Link Posted: 10/10/2006 4:50:07 PM EST
I'd seriously consider one once the .308 and belt fed units are released.

Cant wate! Best idea I have seen for the Ar15 platform. In almost the last 30 years! Will you be offering a option of differnt lenth forends? Rifle, Mid, and Car? Sign me up for a .308 & .45

Is there the faintest hope this system will be offered for export to friendly countries like New Zealand?
Link Posted: 10/10/2006 6:54:41 PM EST
If you made a belt fed adaptor your company would explode in growth....

Go hire more people and get this to the market place NOW!

I have a great deal of respect for MGI. TWL spends a lot of time on these boards answering questions and contributing whenever applicable. That's excellent customer relations in my opinion. Keep up the good work.

I'm looking forward to the .308 kit!
Link Posted: 10/11/2006 2:36:56 AM EST
I like the idea and the engineering that is going into this project. Hope to see one in action soon.

I sure wish they went with FAL mags instead of the M14 mags.

Can your uppers fit a non-hydra AR lower receiver? I would be tickled to be able to swap between 5.56, 6.5MPC, 6.5 Grendel, and 6.8 SPC without having to buy more than one upper (take pitty on the financially strapped college student )

forgive me for speaking out of turn here, but i thought i had seen something like this offered by brownells.  was the quick change offering i ran across in brownells yours?  is it the same model we are discussing here?

So do you use the same bolt carrier for all calibers?
Will different caliber bolts be offered?
Is the ejection port large enough for .308 to clear reliably?

Very cool stuff. Keep up the good work!

DO you plan to offer a FAL magazine well for us 308 fans?
Link Posted: 10/11/2006 11:07:49 AM EST
What are the odds of being able to use an M14/M1A Magazine (ala AR-10A4)?

I'm now heavily considering moving to one lower, period, for a 14.7" .223 Upper and an 18" .308 FF upper -- hence the nagging questions about zero repatability, since that strength of system is appealing
