Check this out at www.robarm.com, there are some videos...quite similar but based on the original Stoner design. The company also makes some sweet AK-type rifles with the stronger RPK receiver....Sorry but the pics are squished...

From Robarm...Our latest project, the RAV02 MC (Pronounced "RAVE") was very successful. It can be chambered for 5.56 NATO; 7.62x39mm; and 5.45x39mm. It was developed and tested to current military specifications. Soldiers who have shot it prefer it hands down over the M4 Carbine. Even using the 7.62x39mm round, it is as accurate as an M4 Carbine. it can digest steel or brass cased ammunition fed through AK47 magazines and drums. The Rifle Features the S.I.R. (Swan Integrated Rail System) which give the rifle Accessory Rails (Picatinny Rails) at the 3, 6, 9, and 12 O'clock positions. The reliability also surpasses the M4 Carbine.

Hope Santa brings me one of these...

Then there's this little gem - the SSK Suppressed AR chambered in .300 Whisper.

The .300 Whisper is the .221 Remington Fireball necked-up to .308 and loaded with bullets ranging in weight from 125 to 190 grains. The overall length of the round with the 168 grain Sierra HPBT is the same as the .223 so the round will fit in normal AR 15 mags. It is the invention of J.D. Jones of SSK industries in Ohio, although something very similar was made by the late Elgin Gates for single-shot metallic silhouette competition called the .223-.30 x 1.5. Jones chambers the T.C. Contender, the AR 15 and the Remington 700 bolt action rifle in the .300 Whisper.

Its called the 'whisper' because it can be loaded to subsonic velocities for use in sound suppressed guns by military and law enforcement. It is no longer considered a 'wildcat' cartridge because there is a company that sells loaded ammo; I forget what their name is at the moment. My own experiments with the .300 Whisper in the AR 15 with an SSK upper receiver have shown that it requires a very narrow range of very fast-burning rifle powders such as IMR 4227 and that even a half-grain over-load will produce a substantial pressure rise. Although not dangerous at that level, it shortens brass life considerably due to primer pocket deformation. It is, however, quite accurate.
