This new version would need to be submitted separately, since it's a different model.

Thing is, this doesn't use an AK action. The recoil spring is on the piston, ala the Sig 55X. That is a VERY significant change, and I think it's enough to let this gun slip through.

I don't see how that's a Sig MPX competitor. It has a buffer tube. It's presumably direct blowback. The CMMG Mk-9 has been doing what this does since forever.
