You are thinking about the LaFrance .45 AR, it uses a thompson stick mag only.

Oly and Dalphon upper conversions use the UZI mag. or 28 round modified M3 sticks, both types hard as hell to load.

I am working on converting a preban snail drum to use on an OLY conversion, it give me 55 rounds and will be easy to load.

Putting a .45 barrel on an AR is like putting a slant 6 in a Hemi Cuda. Why take away all that power and penetration. The ammo isn't even cheaper. [sniper]

I want it so I can shoot at a indoor rangein the winter time.They have a AR leauge and every one else shoots a 22 conversion unit.So just to be diffrent..........
I agree a pistol caliber in a rifle or carbine is a waste.Now a subgun would be nice to play with(Illinois) but for anything serious give me at least a 223

I just found a picture of on, but it looks like it takes an m-3 grease gun mag, not the thompson.

"This M16 based weapon is engineered to fire the .45 ACP round, utilizing Thompson SMG magazines. "

Uses Thompson mags.....but that doesn't matter since it's LE/Govt only.  Looks like we're just stuck w/ 9mm (as in the original Colt AR 9mm).  Unless you like the Olimpic w/ the adapted mags.....
