    With rnough machining it’ll be possible. Having what’s basically a soviet M249 SAW would be pretty dope.

    anything is possible with enough time and money. A fellow 07/02 I know in KC area may be up for that. PM me if you want his contact

    Not sure why you would want to. One of the reasons I bought an RPD over a fitelite/ares upper is for the cheaper and heavier hitting ammo.

    You’d need to reduce the bolt face diameter then do some messing around with the gasing and probably recoil spring

    Amazing graphic. Excellent design skills. You should work for Microsoft.

    Hey, we’re living in a time of string theories and God particles.

    Feasible, doable? Yeah, sure, why not?

    Expensive.

    Just use 762×39 bozo. Not every gun needs to shoot 556

    You’ll need to modify or make a bolt and barrel, maybe the feed system. If that doesn’t deter you, and you’re prepared to kiss a good chunk of change goodbye, then go for it!

    If you’re dedicated enough, you can rechamber damn near any gun you want. But why do you specifically want an RPD in 5.56? What’s wrong with an RPD in its traditional 7.62×39 or a semi automatic LMG (LSG?) that was designed for 5.56?
