Unsure--9mm would probably be first. Maybe 6-months to a year.

Recently saw a version of Jesse James’s SCR-like-thing done very nicely with a full length handguard and wood stock to have some Sten/PPSH 41 kind of style. I kinda resent that guy from back in the chopper days, but whatever. I’m glad I’m not stuck in the middle of whatever patent infringement BS goes down between him and FightLite.

That shit aside, I saw potential to do something with the FightLite SCR lower that I could get excited about. I’m still working through the details and this is just a rough mock-up. Lots of work left to do.

Here’s my 50 state legal AR platform rifle inspired by the M1918 BAR and the 1941 Johnson LMG. Front sight/muzzle extension and forend tube with wood grip are both built from scratch. The stock is Remington 870, from the milk crate full of junk stocks at the LGS.

Since he probably has a intern name-searching him, I half expect to see something like this built with 10x the budget and some genuine vintage Johnson parts available from Mr James some time soon.
That's nice.
