Unless you have an NFA registered machine gun lower, I really can't see the point.

3 words, Slide Fire Stock

So you want to put a belt-fed upper on a slide fire stock?....I'm all for creative projects but that sounds like it has more problems than a submarine built with used chopsticks.

He just wants to waste ammo at unheard of rates.

Seriously. Did you win the lotto? Or do you foresee a need to lay down supressive fire in the near future?

Do it in .22 magnum; magazines have been an issue with that round, IIRC.

Maybe in 7.62x39mm for the same reason and for the love of cheap surplus ammo. :D

what issues will it face?

Have you spent much time behind belt fed weapons? Feed mechanisms are located in the feed cover and typically engage a top lug on the reciprocating bolt creating a scissor action on the feed arms which pull fresh rounds into position and kick out spent links.

Fabrication would be challenging and the timing would need to be perfect. I imagine you could rig a semi auto trigger to work with an open bolt setup but holy cow. Sounds like a lot of work.
