Is this possible? Has anyone tried it?

Just wondering if it is a good idea at all.

Thanks

Yes, Barrett makes a full auto lower receiver. Also the uppers can be placed on standard selective fire lower receivers. I have fired numerous times full auto 68SPC. Just the Barrett. Controlability is fine. More recoil than the 5.56 but far less than an AK. The 6.8 is very much an intermediate cartridge capable of very controllable fully automatic fire.

I shot a LMT full auto at the LMO shoot after SHOT Show and it was awesome. I found it to have much less muzzle rise than an identical gun in 5.56mm. More of just a push with all the bullets in a very tight beaten zone downrange.

Seems like a very interesting and viable project. Will see how to work out ammo logistics before getting into it.

Thanks for all your input.
