    Dalphon actually got one working, but they were long on promises and short on delivery. I think they went bankrupt.

    Basically, it is not rocket surgery. You need to get a top end that will fit on the lower and can use the fire control group. It's a matter of geometry, since the belt feed mechanism is independent of the lower receiver.

    Ares made one and have even delivered some, it's called the Shrike. But it's practically at Unicorn status it took so long to get them.

    I think they are pretty neat myself, would be tons of fun with a RDIAS, LL or RR.

    Speaking of which, who has RLLs for sale these days?

    No idea, too poor for stamp collecting so I don't even bother looking at/for them.
