Out of curiosity, why wasn't a M16 mag catch used for the conversion? Was there just no room on the magwell or was there another reason?

The conversion looks good, in general, but I'd rather have a more conventional release.

On a slightly different note, have you ever thought about developing a Mini-14 to AR-15 mag conversion?
I'll need guns.......lots of guns.

Here's my project in it's current configuration.

Very, very nice. Where did you get the optics and carry handle?

Now if it just had the pistol grip and folding stock...

My good friend HotBrass/Longshot got us both a sweet deal on the optics/carry handle.

Cals Sporting Armory can special order them for you. I think they run about $600 Delivered.

Very cool!

Any plans for the .45 Carbine?

can the mag well on a USC be replaced?
it looks like its integral to the lower on the UMP:

what 45 magazines are available in 30 round preban and relatively cheap?

If you did - I would have to go out and buy both the UMC and the Kit ASAP!
I can't afford that right now! Uh - Perhaps in March?
