that is a .30 cal. R&D a F/A kit for an AR-10. Not that it would be a hot seller, but It would have a better chance than a belt-fed/bumpfire ....thingy.

I think honestly you find more technically knowdgeable and helpfull people on lightfighter.com, m4carbine.com and Snipershide.

I don't any of us here have enough technical knowledge and experience with that type of custom work.

Please be sure to link us you thread. I'm honestly extremely interested in their responses.

There is at least one of us on here that could probably build what he wants.......i just wont. Mainly because i see no point in buildin a rifle that is ILLEGAL. To sell to anybody except gov't that is, why would they want something like that when they have full autos?

I know he mentioned bump firing, but I just cannot wrap my head around the idea of bumpfiring a shoulder held belt fed.

Hope u didn't spend a lot on the license...

Put a sign in your front yard that reads "Gun Free House" & see where the criminals go.

I think you are going to find that, although the concept has interesting possibilities on paper or in your head, not really a viable application. The legal headaches alone will keep migrains going for years. Most belt fed guns are open bolt, which brings you real close to NFA territory. I just don't see this happening.
