Default .22lr 1918 bar

my xmas present came!!!

a new 1918 BAR stock. its currently in its airsoft form so ill enjoy this for awhile before i decide to gut it open and drop in a .22LR action/barrel.

the width of the BAR receiver is a bit over 1.5 inches so in theory a Ruger 10/22 can fit in it. if the 10/22 wont fit then ill drop in my Marlin 795

everything is full metal except the plastic handguard and butt stock. but i have to say that the faux wood looks real

this bad boy feels like it weighs about 17-18lbs. will probably take it over 20lbs with a .22LR inside.

i paid $365 shipped for this limited stock. cant wait to gut this and take it to the range when im done with it

its been awhile. my wife put me on check which is why i havent been able to complete more .22 conversions. we got into a fight because she said i spend too much time with my guns.

now for pics.

i still have my other BAR with the pistol grip version that hasnt been converted yet. so ill eventually have 2 different BAR's with a .22LR inside

decided it was time to gut it. here's 3 hours of work so far just trying to figure out what needs to be fabricated and what needs cutting

there's a Marlin 795 "pre fitted" in right now.

- more cutting to move the 795 ejection port forward.
- buy a metal barrel shroud to go over the 795 barrel to fit the heavy bipod and front sight.
- redesign the extension trigger.
- drill a hole for an extension screw through the action
- drill a hole for the safety
- JB weld Marlin 795 magazine to the BAR magazine
