Lines Of Effort
Below are the Lines of Effort (LOE). Feel free to pick a LOE that suits your talents. Please let us know what you're working on.
Effort Lyndon is a combination of an AR thumbhole stock, an AR57 upper, and an AR trigger jig. It is the world's easiest to build centerfire closed-bolt semi-auto rifle.
Effort Hopper is an attempt to build a 5.56x45mm single-stack ammunition hopper using HK's excellent single-stack SL-8 rifle magazine.
Effort 22 is what the esteemed gentleman of the Commonwealth of Virginia is working on. He's building a proof of concept lower to accept a .22"LR upper.
Effort Thumbhole is an AR compatible thumbhole stock made from bricks or other materials.
Effort Bump Fire is an AR or AK compatible bump fire stock made from bricks or other materials.
Effort Glue will catalog the techniques and materials used to permanently couple bricks and other parts together.
Effort Woodstock is an AR compatible thumbhole stock made from wood and reproduced by a commercial stockmaker. This would take someone who has made stocks before to design, make, and then send to a commercial stockmaker to be kept as as a pattern for reproduction.

Effort Pistolmag is the development of a magazine well that will accept existing pistol caliber magazines.
Effort Brickmag is the development of plastic brick magazines for any cartridge chambered in the AR.

State Rule Efforts - these may or may not be ARs...
Effort California is Efforts Thumbhole and Bloomberg modified to meet California law regarding thumbhole stocks and fixed magazines.
Effort Pelosi is a celebration of Representative Pelosi's reelection, and a solution to shooters behind the lines who have difficulty monopoding their weapon with state-mandated sub-capacity magazines.
Effort New York is Efforts Thumbhole and Bloomberg modified to meet New York law regarding thumbhole stocks and fixed magazines.
Effort Connecticut is Efforts Thumbhole, Bloomberg, and Kalashnikov modified to meet Connecticut law regarding thumbhole stocks, trigger finger location, and use of AR parts. It will likely use Ruger Mini mags and an AK or Saiga FCG.
