The wait can be excruciating I know. If you have one at the shoot we can slap my can on there.

Wonder what kind of barrel he'll be using on the upper? The manufacturer I mean?

That is still a secret and will probably not be disclosed.  Some things you have to keep close to you.  But they will have my famous crown on them.  Not just a hack and install barrel.

why would you not want to say who's  barrel you are going to use??    I know at least for me, knowing the make and specs of a barrel play a BIG part of  how much Ill pay or if Ill even buy the gun.

Here is a hot off the press not even deburred picture of the upper.  And there are still a couple more things that need to be done to it.

That is my upper.  It is a redesign of the original.  Its lighter and better.  Nothing on this rifle will use any of the BM parts.  They will all be mine or standard AR components.  I have had extrusions for about 4 months now and finally to the point to start cutting on them.  I have enough extrusions for 130 complete rifles.  There will be a first production run of 100 rifles that will have special letters signed by me as the first production run from K&M ARMS.  I will personally build each rifle from this production run.  After that I may have too big of a backlog had have to hire a crew to keep up with production.

Yes the complete rifle will be available first in .223.  Price point is $1800 for the complete rifle.  I am going to open the can of worms here but have just started the list last week.  I am not taking deposits and delivery it to begin around the first of the year or sooner.  I can not promise anything for a time line as that is why I am not taking deposits.  The way it will work is that when your number comes up if you do not want it there will be plenty of more people behind you that will gladly take it.
How to get on the list.  Send me an email to ken.kmarms@gmail.com and ask to be added to the list.  You will need to include name, phone number, and forum username.  I will send you the next available serial number.  I will then contact you when it is ready and you will have 2 weeks to send payment and the FFL to transfer it to.  I will also have the list at bullpup shoot for people who do not see this thread.

Ken I'm a huge fan of your previous improvements to the M17s. I've had you work on my upper (you even fixed some sloppy mods the previous owner did without it affecting my cost). I have already put in for one of the lots. I have a few questions: 1. Will be able to chose a color before it ships to us or will it only ship in black? 2. Will the mag release be the same or have you improved that also/ relocated it to a more convenient place? 3. I know you said it will be chambered in .223 but will it still handle the higher pressure of the 5.56x45mm round? 4. Will there be the option to add side rails and or a brass deflector (for people who fire from both shoulders)?
