    Clay....simply Google steampunk guns and look at the images and you will understand why I choose to use that term to describe this.

    I had a 1919A4 with shoulder stock and bipod I would shoot offhand for a goof. Was normally able to get off a half dozen 5 round bursts before my bad shoulder would call a cease fire. With the lighter weight barrel and a FAL stock with the flip up wire support I think I could probably make it through a 100 round belt in fairly well aimed bursts.

    And it would attract the attention of everyone on the range as well.

    The term "steampunking" sounds far too exotic-erotic. I'm feeling considerably uncomfortable right now.

    It looks pretty cool, I don't see any Steampunk in it myself. It's lacking that Victorian era flair and looks to mass produced IMO.

    I agree; not enough wood or brass for steampunk.
    Pedantry and mastery are opposite attitudes toward rules. To apply a
    rule to the letter, rigidly, unquestioningly, in cases where it fits
    and in cases where it does not fit, is pedantry... To apply a rule with
    natural ease, with judgment, noticing the cases where it fits, and
    without ever letting the words of the rule obscure the purpose of the
    action or the opportunities of the situation, is mastery.

    Yes but with great old, huge receiver...add wood furniture instead of plastic and a few brass accents like a big brass cone flash hider and it would be perfect.
