@drchops: So you're saying you'd buy a $100 polymer airsoft gun, strip the furniture off of it vs. buying a $100 stock MADE for the 10/22....

@drchops: Sorry, I posted two messages and then wanted to add to the first - but I hit 'edit' on the wrong one (yours). And my Commander really isn't fancy; its a brushed SS finish - not polished. For me, SS is advised due to my skin being somewhat corrosive to other metals (I'll rot the back off a watch).

But no, I don't build, and most of what I do I know a bit about the hobby/market came from reading the above comments.

Has anyone actually compared the end result of a RJF bullpup furniture to that of a modified P90 airsoft gun and confirmed they are essentially the same plastic / design, etc.? I do understand that the 10/22 maybe capable of doing this with some semblance of safety but I'd rather trust the design kit of known expert gunsmiths. Plus if you line both of them up side by side I bet you'd agree as well.

@rpstrong: That wasn't me that said you had a plastic 10/22 :D. Plus, I like plastic 10/22s. The new takedown is a polymer!
And a stainless Commander is pretty fancy in my book. I don't have any 1911's at the moment but I'm looking at picking up an old Colt Mustang here pretty soon lol. Hopefully a full size in the near future.

This is the longest shot that's ever been shot, BUT do you build at all? I just started a new FAL build and am sans a receiver.. any chance you're a FAL builder and have any old Metric OR Inch receivers? Type doesn't matter.. 1, 2 3, etc.

OH! And on the subject of 10/22s.. The Akins Accelerator is back! They popped the spring out and put it back on the market lol (It's the full-auto stock if you've never seen it)

@kvellano "Have fun with your plastic 10/22"
So, I'm pretty sure it doesn't really matter what I say at this point lol, but just let me just take 1 last stab at this:
That Marauder - the one you're saving your hard earned money to buy - is polymer (also referred to as "plastic.") It's a "plastic gun."
Also, I'm pretty sure you didn't answer @rpstrong's question :)

Just out of curiosity, what kind of AR did you end up with?

@rpstrong: No worries. I'm no expert, just a novice shooter. To answer your question, I love tacti-cool firearms haha...My 10/22 is setup for long range, but I want another one for plinking/scenario shoots. Thinking the marauder setup will be the best for me in that regard.

@drchops: Nuttin' to it. I didn't do it, but the range master at my scout camp demonstrated that a stripped down .22 could still fire. (Probably a single shot bolt action.)

Oh, and I don't have a 'plastic 10/22' - I'm more into pistols, specifically a Colt's Combat Commander .45 in stainless. Nothing fancy, but I did have a better trigger installed.

@kvellano: Sorry if I misinterpreted your initial post. I did not intend to short change your gun knowledge, but I was not alone in thinking that you didn't understand the process.

Based on your other posts, all I can figure is that you don't want a firearm to resemble an Airsoft - that is, you don't want a 'toy' to be lethal.

Is this the case?

Whatever floats your boat guys!!! Just know, any experienced gun smith or verteran shooter is gonna give you the stink eye when they see you modified an airsoft gun to house 10-22 components. I'm done. Over it.

vote-for-6vote-against

@drchops: I get it...you're not modifying the receiver/barrel/firing components. You're modifying the stock aka "furniture". I've Disassembled/Reassembled 10/22's many a time...but what I'm saying is: Airsoft parts don't belong on firearms, so modifying an airsoft gun to house 10-22 internals is wrong.

@kvellano I really don't think you're understanding what we're saying here.. You're not converting an Airsoft gun into a firearm and there are absolutely no Airsoft pieces being installed in the 10/22. None. At all. Nowhere. You're putting a big plastic shell around it. Literally the exact same thing as those Red Jacket and Marauder stocks you're so fond of.

Here, I'll explain this so you can understand:
This is a 10/22. It's the whole gun - magazine, fire control group, bolt, barrel, etc. You could fire this as it sits safely - wouldn't recommend it though. .

Aftermarket stocks play no part in the operation or safety of the weapon, they're just there for aesthetics and comfort

@drchops: I built an AR-15. That's fundamentally different than converting an airsoft gun into a real one. Cosmetic or not, airsoft parts don't belong on any firearms.

vote-for-6vote-against

@rpstrong: I get that. I see what you're doing. I just think its wrong. I don't buy airsoft parts for any of my firearms. Period. Have fun with your plastic 10/22.

@kvellano: Don't apologize, just educate yourself a little more.. No need to be insulting either though. Also, nobody said anything about converting an Airsoft gun into a firearm.

Just go educate yourself a little about the subject, you seem to lack any kind of fundamental understanding about firearms you own. That cool marauder stock you're saving for is nothing more than a plastic shell - essentially a hollowed out high-end Airsoft gun.
[edit] @rpstrong: Beat me to it, thanks :).

@kvellano: Do you understand that you have to start with a fully functional Ruger rifle, and that the Airsoft pieces are essentially cosmetic? That is, you can't just start shooting .22s out of an Airsoft.

vote-for-6vote-against

@drchops: I'm sorry but your statement just freaks me out knowing you're converting cheap airsoft guns into real guns...not to say it doesn't work...but really, I think its irresponsible as gun owner.

@wootjjk: That thing is unbelievably overpriced.. probably cost about $8 to manufacture. Plus for $300 you can get a decked out 10/22. (lol @ patent pending) Still cool though.
Us 10/22 owners have been making bullpup's for years: You basically just take a (GOOD) P90 Airsoft gun and hollow it out.

#2 Video of the bullpup airsoft 10/22 shooting

The 10/22 is self contained, you could actually shoot it without a stock.. or on the opposite side: use ANYTHING as a stock. You could hollow out a log if you wanted too heh..

@wootjjk: Dammmnnnn...never seen that one before! $300!! As cool as it is...I'd rather build a dedicated .22 upper for my AR-15...still an awesome find though

@kvellano: We have that Archangel in stock, we actually have 330 of them in stock. They are also $14.04 cheaper than the link you showed. On EOD it is only $151.95. And since it is over $150 you can use coupon code PREPPERS for free shipping on the entire order no matter what else you get.

Note that this is not a firearm - it is a replacement stock for a Ruger .22 rifle.
