I'm posting this in relation to the comments on the original internals of it's integral suppressor.
Sounded very familiar for some reason.

Could be very entertaining!
I've not so much been interested in the firearm itself as much as a 9x39mm cartridge.
Way back in the late 80's I had toyed with the idea of what would have been a wildcat cartridge in 9x39mm using a Hornady 9mm XTP 147gr JHP. The only drawback in that time period were the following: Money due to college expenses. Lack of relatively inexpensive and available brass. Little to no knowledge of either SKS or AK-47/AKM gunsmithing, sources of spare parts or specialty tooling.
And even if I had the specs as first mentioned affording a custom barrel and everything including getting dies made would be a royal PIA financially.

My desires aside I'm kind of surprised no one here in the USA has pursued both firearms and ammunition manufacturing. Unless it's too much of a niche weapon and ammo.
