I have been thinking a small ring mauser with a 16" barrel and downsized stock and other features would make pretty slick little carbine. (even for my self) I havent seen any really good deals on small ring mausers or the actions for a while. are there any out there???????
I was thinking about a pump on a AK reciver and it occured to me that It would need to have locking lugs. its also been occuring to me that the rivets or screws that hold the trunion in On a blow back system deal with a much more considerable load than a gas operated gun. as they are seeing what ever it takes to push the bolt back going the oposite direction.
