There are no rounds in the gun and safety on. Im not an idiot and have been handling guns my whole life. Im pretty sure i know how to not shoot myself.

Wanting one that takes 1911 mags, because I already have a 1911.

One of the things I have always wanted to do is design a gun from the ground up, and see it come to life.

I may have to look into this. A 1911 carbine sounds like a cool idea.

He wasn't calling you an idiot, just calling you out on a basic rule of gun safety. Gun safety is something we like around here.

I'll volunteer to be your test dummy and buy the first one.

Works for me (though, a vice and some string may be better than a test dummy for safety reasons)

If I actually go into business making these (need an FFL), then you definitely have dibs on #1

I think the hard part will just be deciding exactly what to do. There are so many successful semi auto designs out there. Hi-points, ARs, even the 1911 design could possibly be made to work in a rifle. I'll have to study up on that.

I think the easiest way to do this would be to design it so that it uses a lot of parts that are already being made. (trigger, magwell, ect).

I'm going to have some fun with this.

Bro, I already have ideas in head, but I'm terrible at expressing them in word or paper.

What I envision in my brain housing group is something similar to a Thompson, but with a reciprocating slide instead of internal bolt, pistol grip incorporating mag housing, mannlicher fore end (optional, but I think it looks sexy) in a take down format.

Sighting systems similar to many ARs. LER scope or red dot, flip up back ups. BUT... I like minimal to no rails. Personal preference.

And, in my mind, I'm looking at 90% or greater internal parts interchangeability with a standard 1911.

Give me a few minutes, and I'll see if I can make a pic of what your describing.

I was thinking either complete take down, or folding stock.
