I keep looking at the design and so many things going over in my head. I ideally need the EMC kit to arrive so I can determine if I can flip the firing can upside down and everything still fit inside it. Can I fit the regulator in the as well etc?

My ONLY real concern at this point is the ball feed hole into the breach. If I cut the bottom I would need to make something to fill the gap left by the old feed, which is offset. I'm also concerned about the strength of it all if I did cut another hole below it.

I'm not good with patience... but that is what I need right now. Need to get an EMC kit first before I start cutting...

Filling the old feed hole is pretty straight forward.

Have a piece of delrin or teflon turned to be a super tight fit in the breech. Insert plastic, and fill the old feed area with JB weld. Leave it for a couple of days and pull the plastic out. Might need to hit the rod with a light coat of oil or something before you put it in to make sure the JB weld doesn't stick, but that is why I suggested those two materials in the first place as they are quite slick and stick resistant.

The Etha's dump chamber is entirely self contained in the firing assembly. The body doesn't actually hold any of the firing air, just routes it through channels. A new body would not be overly difficult to make that alleviates a boatload of your problems.

Is that something you would be able to make with delrin? I don't have the material, dimensions or machines for it.

Also.. interesting idea on a new body.

Cutting without a vice is somewhat difficult and not very neat. Really need a vice... and to be utterly honest, a workspace, as the kitchen is not really appropriate for this stuff.

Anyway... just decided to go for it as per the previous picture, force myself to start working on it, whether it's 'perfect' idea or not this time.

For reference.. I WOULD be interested in doing a 10 round version, but that would require another Etha body and I'm not sure where I could get a body cheap.

Who not go with a milsig 8rnd mag they are really small and light. And it can be modded to fit in any tipx magwell. You could then use one of the many 3d printed magwells

Nope. lol.

I really couldn't stand the 7 round tipx's mags I used on an SMG a few weekends ago, so absolute minimum of 10 rounds for me. PLUS... my idea for mags that are first strike capable are under 10 dollars each.

So a dye dam or Bob long m-tac/tac g6r(not magfed)?

I do agree with you that the rize could make for a decent platform since they have a gog style noid in them now. It would be easy to relocate the reg and electronics or make it a mech.

An older shocker sft/nxt could be a decent alternative to a Luxe without having as much money invested.
