I got an email from military gun supply about a week ago telling me they are taking pre-orders now and will be shipping in about a month. I plan on buying one eventually, but I , well, I have no money! So it'll have to wait till tax return 2009. Even though some people may say "A 5.7 AR, why bother?" it is a good idea to get one. If it sells well, maybe another company may make a 5.7 rifle of some kind. Then another would follow and maybe another 5.7 hand gun would be born (hopefully more affordable than the five seven). Now someone else would noitice all these 5.7 weapons and start to make 5.7 ammo. Now it would be more available and maybe cost less. That would be sweet! Imagine ammo being everywhere! Just the other day I got lucky and found some at my local Sportsmans and bought the 3 they had. Now I have no food as I needed that $75 for groceries. But we've all been in that spot before. Priorities. Anyway, just wanted to give you a heads up.

I think your idea would work well if they started with some bolt guns. The AR thing looks kind of taped-together and goofy. It might bomb on the market which would have the opposite effect of scaring manufacturers away.

I am very tempted by this receiver...I wonder if you can put it on an AR pistol lower and how that would do....

I have looked at this for a while now. I most likely will get one, just for the novelty of the item.

Personally, I would only do a pre-order if it was just an order, not a order and payment. I don't mind standing in line for something, but I won't pay to stand in line.

These uppers are out. I'm not sure why MGS doesn't have them yet. I held one today at my local shop, but they are good about getting things right when they start shipping. I passed. Just wasn't Wow'd by it. It comes with a new buffer so you have to swap them when putting the upper on. The single piece upper/rail was nice.

Is somebody other than Millitary Gun Supply doing these?

I know a guy that is biting at the bit to get one but I do not know where to send him or find it for him
