The critical bits are patented, so you probably won't be able to do something like that without some innovation on your part. Any thoughts?
While I expect that Magpul will recieve its patent from the USPO, I wouldn't expect the patents to hold up in court. The original idea and design is now 100 years old. Its hard to convince a court that you idea is "new" and worthy of protection when a long dead Russian came up with the basic design 100+ years ago.
