Anyone converted a genisis 12ga to f/a

I have a couple lowers, they use the ar15/10 triggers. The upper has a bolt carrier that is very narrow in the rear.  I'm thinking of adding a collar or welding a trip so that the sear trip would need to be extended.

 

anyone tried it?

they wont say.

The recoil is reduced, AR controlls, just smother all around.  I have a tromix 8" saiga and this thing is was better.

I converted ar10 before just wanted to see if there was a easier way.

can you not just weld some crap on the bolt like the old colt sp1 conversions? im guessing thats what you mean by a collar.

i don’t understand why ever1 in this industry is so secretive. like this is some black magic hoodoo. ohh no you might make 1 and not be able to sell it! Only kid on the block with that toy. 

you have the upper right? im with aren show us a pic of the bolt

The end of the bolt is the same diameter as a ar10. they just thinned the middle section out.

The biggest joy anyone attempting this will run into is how to fix bolt bounce.

I don't think that will be a problem unless you have experienced it. The bcg has a spring in it which adds additional pressure on the bolt. Also with the larger bolt rotating I think it will be fine.

If it doesn't Ill just drop a hydraulic buffer in it.

so heres how i would approach it. i would make a dias with a longer tail and see if it causes any problems that away u dont mess up a bolt or lower.....i looked at that upper and man they are proud of that thing. if the bolt was cheap i  would mill it flat and weld in a sear trip

damn, wish I thought of that. Mill a sleeve, use some set screws to time it, then a weld tack and GTG.

just milled a ring to weld in place, sad thing is I timed it wrong, with the sear all the way back vs forward.

 

Oh well I'll fix it tommorow,

I've been following them.for a while they finally have product?  From the pic of the bolt should be possible like a jts12 is.
