    AM-180 M11/9 upper coming?!! Maybe?

    This was just posted on Subguns.com

    I don't have any affiliation, but I recall watching with interest 10 or 15 years ago when a couple of these were submitted for ATF approval.
    ----------------------------------

    We get the M11/9 question a lot and have been holding off making the announcement until we had ATF approval and were ready to ship but rather than wait any longer, the answer is YES, we have a newly designed AM15 Upper Receiver kit specifically for the M11/9 machine guns that we will be ready to ship pending ATF approval.

    We've incorporated all of the design features and experience that we've picked up over the last 5 years with the M16 AM15 version into the newly designed M11/9 AM15 upper and it adds an incredible new dimension to the popular M11/9 platform. Like everything we sell, the M11/9 AM15 upper receiver will have the same 30 day return period available. We're that sure you're going to like it!

    The anticipated price is the same as the M16 AM15 at $1999. Its a completely new design and virtually no parts are interchangeable since the M11 version is much more compact than the M16 version and only minimally extends the overall length of the M11/9's standard length.

    We will be adding pictures to our webpage in the next few weeks as well as some video of it running. We do not currently have "a list" nor are we taking any deposits or offering any pre-sales. We will post a paid ad here on subguns when they are ready to ship. Although we appreciate everyone's interest, PLEASE do not call and ask for more info and how to get on the list and have we heard anything and how much longer etc. since our customer service team has no additional information to share other than what I've posted here.

    Hopefully it won't be too much longer and it will definitely be worth the wait.

    Thank you for your business and your support,

    Why do you assume it's .22LR?
    Never mind; I assume it's a version of this: http://www.tacticalinc.com/am15-uppe...ver-p-420.html

    This is the same guy with an earlier version so while this isn't the one that was approved, this gives an idea of it's function.

    how many people will pay $2,000 for a .22 kit?

    after seeing people complain about $3,000 for a .223 kit id have to think $2,000 for a 22 kit would also be over the top for many...id gladly pay it as id like to own a AM180...$2,000 is much less than $12,000....and id prefer the small pkg the mac gives it...

    id think lage could do a .22 kit using the S&W .22 AR mag setup and parts off his new m11/15 upper...the black dog 50 rounders work very well....its not 180 rounds though

    How else can you get a 275 round drum dump anywhere near that price?

    Truth be told I want this more than the m11/15.

    The 11/15 price wasn’t the problem, the price change was the problem. 22lr@5cent/round or 556@23cent/round. This upper presents great value for high volume shooting. I want one.

    This is getting pretty insane. The M-11 could become the most versatile machine gun available to the civilian population.

    It's the only modular platform other than the m16. The HK is limited to whatever roller lock designs used it back when

    That is not correct IMHO. I'm fortunate enough to own a Fleming HK sear and 25 host guns. Over half of which are configurations that HK never produced like a full size and reverse stretch MP5 clones in .45 ACP, MP5K clones in .40 S&W and 10mm AUTO, 53K plus 53 and 33K that uses AR mags. So I would suggest that members do some research before posting as fact.

    It is my understanding that a machinegun conversion device like a DIAS or HK sear must be used with the reciever of the "family" of firearms that the conversion device was originally designed for. That is why a DIAS can be used in AR-15 style recievers but not AR 10 recievers. A RR Mac style machinegun can be used with any parts desired, as long as those parts themselves don't constitute a firearm themselves. YMMV.

    Poopy! $3k for the M11/15 upper, now $2k for the AM180-M11 upper. That's double the money I paid for the M11 with 2 uppers and M11-22 kit to start with. This is like crack. Where do I send my money and how long is the waiting list?

    Well it's nice to know that the AM15 uppers are back in production. At least according to their website they are back in production. I've been on the "notify me when back in stock" list for going on two years. It's been a while since I checked their website so no idea when they resumed production or if they just claimed they are back in production.

    Was shocked to see that they have slowed the cyclic rate down to 850RPM. I thought the whole purpose of a .22 with 270 round drum was to dump them out at 1600RPM like the original AM180.
