Default A very odd bullet button question...

The Feinstein Project is an attempt to design an AR lower out of plastic bricks such as Lego or K'Nex. A Californian just joined us and promptly asked how were we going to accommodate a bullet button. We don't know. We came to ask the experts.

Both of our current mag well designs are plastic and are left handed, so a standard AR-15 bullet button won't work. We did find this for $219, but we're looking for a less expensive metal AR magwell that would take a California-compliant bullet button.

We're also wondering if a 10 round hopper, a la the Japanese Type 11 machinegun, would pass California muster.


More details here
. All comments and suggestions welcome. However - we're not crazy, just bored.

Start with featureless builds and you won't need a mag lock.
