I plan on shooting the shittt out of it while my form 1 is being covered with dust by the gruberment. From what I understand it will take 5/6 + or - months. I've sbr'd a PS90 and a 6.8spc AR and got real good results. There isn't much shared information on the MKA SBS process? I do seem to understand that a 14" length isn't that big of a deal, perhaps I'm being naive. If any one has had good results...chime in. BTW I don't want to steal your ideas or attempt to make any money, I wan't to make one gun for myself.
My MKA match is on it's way :)

Thanks for the reply Flatland , I've looked at at all the Youtube vids done all the Google word combinations i.e. Mak 1919, mak-1919 sbs .....on and on. It's funny when I did my PS90 SBR over on the FN discussion group I got ton's of input Here is like some big secret. Like toothandnail sez in one of his posts "it's dead here" ......

The MKA operating system does not lend itself to be shortened, that restricts how much barrel can removed.
In my opinion not a great platform for a sbs, the gas system takes up about 9 inches of the barrel
You need some barrel past that to get the system to function , and the gas ports are the only real adjustment available to alter.
With the exception of the gas bypass...on the match variant you have two, one of them locks out the bypass.
older variants could use a spacer to lock out the bypass
Light springs just lead to malfunctions
All of the sbs MKAs I am aware of only function with high brass heavy loads

Thank You Mr. unforgiven ( the absolute best movie of all time ) Ok, I'm getting some good help now I've got a few parts on the way from Matt (what a great guy !!), now I'll do the stock mod, shoot it and wait for the form 1. I'll start a new thread if February 2017 or there 'bouts.

Remove the 10 round mag, and put the 5 round that came with the gun and go shoot it!
Tomorrow IS range day several assorted boxes buck & slugs + 2 boxes of Walmart White Box. About 100 rounds total..

Totally IMPRESSED , used 6 different types of ammo five and ten round magazines shot about 100 rounds. Not one single FTF/FTL/FTE/FTF this gun is awesome !! And the price was right. Only thing I did was prior to my range trip, I stripped her down, cleaned the quart of machine oil out, dried and applied a nice thin coat of quality gun oil. Truthfully, just clean and go ....no problems.

Alrighty, mooving right along. Got my care package from t & n last week, cut off the stock and grip replaced with new. Replaced trigger and gas thingey + a few other odds and ends. Today I sent in my SBS (13.5") "Trust" paperwork to the NFA, a few changes nothing big just a more hoops. Mid March 2017 ... Maybe.
