You can use any standard AR barrel PLUS you can change out magwells.

Seems like a really cool idea, but there is just something about it that is putting me off....maybe its just that it's trying to be too much rifle.

Definitely a very cool Idea but I don't think it would be for me. Even if it is more expensive I would prefer to have to choose a weapon rather then take a one size fits all. Except for a DMR/SPR/Sniper platform and LMG's I don't see much value in a quick change system but like I said it's definitely cool.

I would need more details about the mechanical lock ups to be convinced they would hold up over time.

I think the biggest market would be for someone who hunts with an AR platform, or preppers who want to be able to use any type of ammo available without having to by 6 different guns. But I have no idea what the price of a new bbl, bolt and magwell are.

It would be kinda cool to be able to go from 5.56 to 7.62, but the question remains how is the weapon going to hold up, and how much more would it be to buy a second rifle?

I was not impressed with the looks of the bbl lockup, but hard to tell from the vid.

I'll keep my 5.56 and trade my M1A in on an LMT 7.62 if I want a .30 cal AR that badly.

I do admire innovations like this however. What is this about it being an old design? Warlike, tell us what you know.

The video irritated me because they weren't using rear sights (I know, its just to show that they function). The Magpul Masada is similar but piston operated.
