Is meeper still doing these? One in a caliber I stock would be pretty sweet.

Yes.

But, turnaround time might be a rub for most folks. TAT in months, years, or decades?

Splogan (my son in law) has a 45 kit that we need to get together but it will not be a quick change. I did work on my meeper tonight since it has had a small issue that I am trying to pin down.

The 7.62X25 allows me to shoot cheap ammo and out to 200 yards is very accurate. No recoil and a blast to shoot.

If you do get one in 45acp it would not be but another $200 or so to add the 7.62X25 since they use the same mags and adapter. The only extra would be the barrel and bolt.

D'oh, I should have read the linked thread first.

That old link rifle is also on one of the infamous Williams Arms Co. "AlumiBomb" receivers, which in the depicted blowback format is the only appropriate use of this weak disaster.

Meeper just finished a 2 rifles for me and they are on the way. I will update pics when I get them. Turn around was about 2 months. The quick change barrel system is not like MGI, meaning it won't be that fast, but with the right tools I can do it in a little over a minute.
