This is great. The only problem is that there may be a lack of ten rounds mags, or maybe not. It would look sort of funny with a ten round magazine on top.

50 rounds baby! Im sure homey will block off the mag for us, hes pretty California freindly.

I have one of his R22's and its a blast to shoot.

FN is already making 10 round mags for the P90, I'm sure they will fit the Rhineland upper just fine. It is the same as the 30/50rd mag, except the base plate retainer is a huge spacer.

The real problem is in this statement:


Brass is ejected out the bottom of the AR15 magwell.


So, you can't use that upper with a pistol grip, seeing that the magwell needs to be empty to drop brass...

Unless you make a 30 round magazine body a brass catcher...... Hmmm... Actually a great idea since I would think alot of us would want to reload the 5.7 to cut some of the costs....

hmmm...

Actually I think it's a great feature. In the future those of us who dared to aquire lowers can benefit.

The cool factor of that upper is only exceeded by the Shrike.

By the way, I've been wondering - how come no one does a 308 upper that feeds from the top? Like the top-fed Robarms M96 configuration?

It would work fine with a 30-rd mag body fixed in place with the guts missing. Or a 10 round mag, even.

The problem is the top magazxine is detachable. If you already have a registered AW AR lower, that's fine, if not, you'll have to ditch the pistol grip.
