Challenge: Ares Shrike

I wanted to know if anyone could re-make the Ares Shrike rifle. We've seen the weapon mod in the past done on GR, and now I would like to know if anyone would like to undertake this challenge? I've seen many challenges taken and completed, and would like to try this out.

With the new patch coming out I'm hoping more light will be shed upon the modding of New weapons rather then modding existing ones, making things easier for such talent on these forums. Here are some reference material:

Is that a paintball gun?

No it is a belt fed upper conversion for the M4, it attaches to a standard lower without modification.

AFAIK they have not shipped more than a handful of units to prospective buyers, in fact after many years, and many dollars in deposits later, the company finally issued refunds, because they couldn't make it work as advertised.

I wouldn't believe everything on their website, they may look like they are doing fine, and yes I have seen the videos, but to me that displays one working sample, the problem I believe was with mass production to fulfill customer orders. I have not heard where they are actually shipping units to customers. As I understand it they have only recently started refunding deposits, some have had with them for 5 years now.

Whispers right...Ares have turned into a little of a laughing stock over the Shrike as they haven't managed to fulfill the promise they made to the folks that preordered the uppers. It's now been years since they promised shippment would start and asfar as I know no series production guns have been sent to preorder customers, just a few "special" shipments has gone out to selected ppl.

After making the original GR Ares Shrike mod I kept track of their progress for quite a while but as it started getting obvious they were having troubles I lost interest.
