    I never thought LW bolt carriers were of any use.

    I would like to see the mechanism that allows it to fire open bolt. I am having trouble even trying to conceptualize that as a possibility (open bolt FA while closed bolt semi and select-able from the safety)

    REALLY, REALLY cool. Now that's what every able bodied American male should have. Very impressive.

    I rekon its accomplished in the selector section with some cool gizmos and cams configured to work on the bolt carrier to keep it open-bolt in auto fire, then I'd guess the semi-auto uses pretty much the same as a M16.

    If only we could peek under the hood!! :eek:

    IIRC a number of early designs of sub machine guns fired from an open bolt.
