Really, there aren't much you can do to get it gas operated given the small charges involved CMMG Radial blowback system seems to be it. Sure one could try toggle action like the Luger/Borschardt(spelling?) but it ain't effecient. Recoil operation might be interesting with a moving barrel and a concentric spring delay but accuracy may suffer. Tilting barrel basically the same; a 16" tilting barrel may not be accurate at all.yeah, I was disappointed it was another blowback 9mm PCC. For the asking price, there's really nothing here that can't be had for $2-300 less. Missed opportunity really.
The guys at the Franklin Armory did something like that. I don’t think it ever made it anywhere though. If it did, it would likely have a starting msrp of $3000.I didn't say nothing just not much
Edit. Anyways. One could also do a Double Action revolver style hammer/firing system in a magazine fed pistol carbine?
Yeah and I wish ice cream was a nickel a carton.If someone could offer a 10mm,
45 acp and 9mm carbine that competes directly with the Hi Point carbines, and uses AR ergonomics and parts...and is priced lower than a budget entry level 5.56 16" carbine... you bet your butt that they'll see an enormous demand for it!
