Perhaps a REPR with IC features incorporated?
Darren, what about that crazy little psd with the mp5 style stock?

Gas block has only 2 positions, it is a continuous bleed style gas block with the vent being flash suppressed as it is on the IC and A5. By venting excess gas (like the FAL, SCAR, etc) and always having an open portal for vaporized copper and carbon, it is not as subject to freezing the gas regulator. The trade off with a design like this is you generally get a bloom or flash from the venting gas that can be seen especially with EO/IR. It can blind your EO/IR on the weapon or your helmet monocular. Jesse solved this by venting the gas inside the little hole you use to adjust the regulator with a bullet tip. This breaks the jet of gas up immediately like a flash suppressor so there is no jet bloom or flash. The only place you see it is inside the little hole which shows laterally.
The only commercial version we have done of this so far was a run for Larson's firearms in Washington state. He had them done in a cool sniper grey color, and has some custom engraving. I believe he took shipment of these in the last two weeks and may still have some available. It will become a commercial item for us, but probably not until well into 2013. They are 16" guns with spiral barrels.
Those billet ambi lowers are just sexxy. Once IC production is up and going, will you still offer billet ambi lowers? If not i may need to scoop a spartan or another operator.
