Nah the ATF doesn't care that you're in the Corps. Enjoy your time, learn a bunch, write your ideas down, and when the time is right to manufacturer you will know. You can do it out of your home but not if it is on an installation or in the barracks. BTW the FFL needed is expensive. Semper Fi

Semper Fi. (Any advice? Actual criticisms that are relative?)

Be patient you're dealing with the government

Hahaha, I meant with the rifle... I am already a DEP Poolee and 20+ days from Boot (supposedly).

Not on the rifle, it's an interesting idea though.

Do you think it would work... Gunnery Sergeant (I am presuming)?

- Steyr AUG A3 stock (M4A1 style telescoping stock)
- Bull pup style
- Air-cooled
- Gas operated, short-stroke piston, closed bolt
- Large rear ghost ring sight
- 14 inch barrel
- FN P90 ejection system
- 5.56x45mm NATO rounds
- 30 round (or maybe more) magazine
- Multiple recoil buffers
- Light weight body
- Progressive trigger
- Selective fire (Semi, 5 round burst, full auto)[/QUOTE]

I like the idea, just a few things I think don't mix. Just food for thought-
The m-4 style collapsible stock probably not gonna work on a bullpup, as the bolt and action will be where the buffer tube is. Maybe an adjustable LOP butt pad.
The bottom eject, magazine location? With a bullpup, the only place to put a magazine that doesn't interfere with holding the gun and allows easy reloads would be the bottom. Can't feed and eject from the same location.
Recoil buffers on a 5.56 seems unnecessary, it doesn't kick hard enough to really make use of them, added weight with little benefit.
Keep brainstorming.

Yes it's Gunny Approved and to comment off of Wilder's post I envisioned the magazine further back and the bottom ejection coming from somewhere forward of the mag well.

- Selective fire (Semi, 3 round burst, full auto)
- Ambidextrous ejection (Maybe a "Gunny" version with a drop ejection... XD)
- Adjustable LOP butt pad
- Streamlined body
- Picatinny rail between the sights

Is this honestly better (including Wilder's helpful assistance with some personal changes)?
(Actually, Gunny was right...)

Personally I would do a full length rail with removable sights, it is a strong market trend right now.
For the gunny: Not sure you could get reliable feeding when the bolt has to carry the round over the ejection port, needs a feed ramp that would be in the way for ejection. I can see it stripping a round out of the mag only to drop it out the ejection port. Also that long bolt travel would really slow down the rate of fire. I'm sure it could be done, but unlikely it would be easy/ cheap enough to manufacture and be competitive in the market.
