Kinda like buying a Ford Pinto and replacing all the parts except the gear shift knob (trigger), and, even though the rest of it is now Ferrari, telling everyone you still drive a Pinto.

I've never seen one for the Ar15 platform. Never even heard of someone wanting one until now. I'd start by calling Stephanie at Red Jacket Firearms. Seriously man, they might even get you on the tv. That'd be something that the producers would love to feature.....

Right......either way, I don't think your gonna be able to do this yourself. Gonna need some serious gunsmithing skills and tools.

You have a full set up? If so, I really need to get in touch with you. Got a prototype I need to get made.
