G36 airsoft conversion to shoot .22LR?
saw some youtube videos about people who basically took a ruger 10/22 and fitted it into a G36 airsoft outer casing.
purely cosmetic
i know its possible but is it a good idea?
what do you guys think?

they break pretty easily. theres a guy on rimfirecentral that did it and said the plastic is too cheap. if you could figure out how to use the metal bodies i think it would be a nice idea. also there was aguy trying to sell them for like 250 bucks on this site, totaly not worth it

I saw it when someone posted it here on the forum. It looked pretty scary. It was pretty much held together with electrical tape and hot glue.

There are a couple companies making aluminum based kits to drop 10/22's in to. I forget the name, but if you visit and search the "Ultimate 10/22" forum section there are some wild, and definitely NOT cheap ones.

why on earth would you want to put a real gun into a stupid kiddy airsoft PLASTIC housing? Why not just get a real gun and leave it is a real gun? It baffels me why you are trying to put a real gun into a TOY for kids.

Oh and don't give me the Airsoft are more realistic than paintball gun crap. YOUR PLAYING WITH A DARN TOY.

If you have to do it, do it right instead of gluing a firearm in a toy.

Get the Tapco, or more preferably the Nordic Kit.

Some pics of the kit here

I am in no way affiliated with them, and like my wood/steel 10/22 better, but I do appreciate the craftsmanship
