I now have a functioning billet aluminum lower for the M17s.  This Lower will fit the Bushmaster upper and the K&M upper that will be introduced soon.  I will offer complete rifles at the beginning of the year.
This lower uses standard AR trigger and hammer group with some slight modifications.  Stock AR springs and stock AR pistol grip.  It will come standard with the TangoDown grip as pictured but in black.  It will also come anodized type III class 2.  The best two things about this lower is that it is lighter than the OEM and it has a much improved trigger.  Pull weight is 3.5LB.  That is the best out of the box trigger ever for a bullpup.  With my new patten pending trigger linkage you will be amazed.  You thought my other triggers are great, this one is something to talk about.  It will also come with my standard skeleton trigger and Magpul enhanced butt-pad.
It will be at the bullpup shoot for its first showing.  Come and take a look.
There is no price set on this or the rifle as of yet.  You can visit the new website www.kmarms.com for following the introduction and to get on the waiting list for the new rifle.  The site is not really up and running yet but will be soon.

Good, because it is only going to get more exciting in the next few weeks.

Ken,

A 3.5 lb [mechanical] trigger on a Bullpup is a gem. Good work.

Now, for all of this to "get more exciting" for me, the K&M upper that will be introduced, soon, will also be available in 6.5mm Grendel chambering and offer a left-side ejection version, for those of us who need/choose to shoot a Bullpup, from the left shoulder.

When that becomes a reality, you will "have my [utmost] attention."

After the rifle is up and going a left hand version will be available.  It will also be available in 300 black out with the change of the barrel or swapped out complete upper.  I will still offer the custom shop for those individuals that want something different so I would say that your request is something that is not out of the question.  I need to get the main stream up and going first to recoup my cost for this development.

In view of Ken's encouraging update --- and cognizant of the challenges involved --- I defer to the wisdom of Bullpup Forum Member, johnny9, etched in his standard bottom line, "get r done"! http://bullpupforum.com/index.php?topic=319.0

I am spending full time on this development and for the last 2 months been working the design.  I am super happy with the results so far.  Going to get the upper cut this week.  And it will have a semi free float barrel.  No more front cap.  And to let you know how much material is removed from the lower, it started out as a 8lb 6.2oz block.  Final weight still to be determined as it is out to get the magwell broached this week.  Yes it will be a true drop free mag in a M17s.  Like it should be.

The heat will never transfer to the lower it will all be taken care of with the ventilation in the upper that I'm going to be doing.  and yes this is a total upgrade from the original M17s

I can, but this would not be as easy as an AR80% lower to make operational.  There is more to it than just using a drill press.  You would then also have to buy all the components to go into it.  But what ever the market demands is what I will end up building.

What I've discovered about guns, but especially Bullpups, is you can't just have one!

How cool would having an original and a new one side-by-side at the range!!

 Cool
