Why did they discontinue these? Is it possible for a gunsmith to manufacture one or to make one in a different caliber? I was thinking getting a 40mm size chunk of metal and a gunsmith milling chambers and rifling it. Would that work? I know it would be a pretty penny but if it beats $300 hell. I really wanted 3 XM1822s and a 12ga adapter but because of the price I might have to reconsider. Just because of the XM designation I have to think that this would have some history. Did the millitary plan to use 22lr in grenade launchers?

I heard they were discontinued upon request by ATF. Apparently, the fact that it fires 18 individual cartridges with one trigger pull pushed it too close to being an MG. That's what I heard anyway.
