The right side view. Note that there's a magazine release lever on this side as well, BOTH of which must be pressed in order to release the magazine. As markings on the pistol show, this is a 9mm version and made in Bakersfield, CA USA.
Top rear view of the pistol, with the magazine removed. Note that the magazine clamps are not connected, so you need to press both of them to release the magazine. Also, note that while the front sight is located just forward of the magazine, the rear sight is located on the magazine itself. The picatinny mounts do permit accuracy-focused folks to install a red dot sight though, which would be my suggestion so that your sight picture doesn't wander. Note that the bolt is slightly pulled back in this picture, allowing you to see the back of the barrel just below the magazine's central point.
Left side view with the magazine removed. Note that the safety is ambidextrous, with one wing on either side of the trigger well, and that in the 'safe' position the wings intrude into the trigger well, allowing the shooter to readily tell if his weapon is on safe or not.
The magazine's exposed parts are black plastic, and one winds it like a drum magazine using the built-in fold-up lever.
The underside view of the magazine. Note the spring, which is in order to ensure a tight fit against the prongs which hold onto the magazine. The notches on the side serve to lock in the magazine clamps I mentioned in the earlier pictures of the Calico pistol, and lastly the feed lips of the magazine are visible in the right side of this picture. When installed in the pistol, the winding tool faces the shooter and the feed lips are closest to the muzzle.
There's also a 22LR rifle, which features a right-side ejection port, an AR-15-like foreend (I don't know whether it's compatible with standard AR fore-ends, or if it's using a slightly modified version), a fold-up stock reminiscent of an Uzi design, and sights which are not fixed to the magazine.
What I found truly noteworthy about the Liberty II was just how far its rear stock could be extended. Being a 6'2" guy, I find A2 stocks to be around right, and the Liberty II is able to extend far past the length of an A2 stock. This is a left-side view of the rifle, and note that its standard configuration has two angled pistol grips much like the old Thompson submachine guns. The Liberty II looks a lot like the Liberty III pistol, including the rear iron sights being mounted onto the magazine. However, there's a top-mounted housing designed for optics, such as a red dot sight. The stock actually slides into grooves on the forward handguard.
A (blurry) shot of the magazine-mounted rear dot sights, along with the front sight housing. Note that this is not a picatinny rail, but I'd be surprised if they don't have an available Picatinny spec top for it.
The author of this article, holding the Liberty II in its most extended position. This is the first time I've ever seen an adjustable stock which is actually really too long for my arms, but the Liberty II is actually capable of this. The next time a 7' tall guy is complaining that all buttstocks he's ever used are too short for him, he should consider this rifle.
