i am thinking about building it myself, or selling the rights, patents has been filed

My suggestion; go to gunbroker and bid on a stripped NFA full auto, then contact Ares and buy the upper. They make M16 belt fed uppers in various calibers. It would be cheaper than going through red jacket, as Ares are already set up for doing this. If you have enough money to have the belt fed upper built, you have enough to buy nfa weapons.(several)

I agree. It's not likely we're gonna see a working product for sale.

Right off the bat you're going to weaken the upper receiver with another large cutout in a stressed area, so you may need a steel upper. Could be fun to tinker with I guess but you've got major problems to solve. And then do you honestly think there's a market for this - it ain't gonna be cheap.

Lets say you get past the logistical nightmare of bump firing a belt-fed system that relies on precision. Trying to make money off of such an aborti......creation is a bigger problem. F/A firearms are a niche market anyway cause they burn ammo. You want to do this in 30 cal? The cost of R&D alone will kill this project. Save your money and keep thinking.
