Default Latest pics of 3rd prototype water cooled/air cooled Ruger 10/22 rifle

Here's the latest photos of my 3rd prototype machine gun dress up kit stock for the Ruger 10/22.

No modifications of any kind are done to the Ruger 10/22 receiver. It is still factory stock.

3rd prototype, (2nd water cooled prototype) that also quick changes to an air cooled model in just a few seconds. All that's left to do is to fabricate the sights like I did on the last 2nd prototype and fabricate the tripod mount attachment piece for fitting to a standard camera tripod, drill, tap and install the drain plug and hose, get all the aluminum anodized and attach a crank fire trigger attachment to the trigger guard so it can be crank fired like a Gatling. And then get my production line set up. I got several quotes from machine shops for quantities on the parts, and it was just too much. There are actually quite a few parts. And I don't want the hassle of having these made over seas, with shipping and not being able to be there to see and fix any production mistakes. So I have decided to set up my own production line to make these myself in small production lots. Still will be a little while before they are in production, but getting there little by little. All the end user will have to do is get their factory standard stainless steel tapered barrel end threaded to 1/2 x 28 tpi at a local machine shop. I can make the kit easily work with an .092 bull barrel too, by machining the faux receiver front plate a little differently for the bull barrel.

With 50 rd MWG mag in gun.


With 25 rd Tactical Innovations mag in gun


Quick changed to an air cooled model. Pic taken before I drilled & tapped & added hex button screws to the top cover also before I rounded ejection port ends.

Instead of a crank handle, what about an electric motor to work in the same way. Then it can be wired to a switch on the handles. Novel item.

What is the difference between an electric motor that pulls the trigger fast and a crank handle that does the same thing?

An electric motor is defined by the ATF as being an automatic weapon.

A crank fed is a manually operated weapon and is legal.

Putting an electric motor on a semi auto weapon to make it fire automatically can have you spending 10,000$ for a 10 year stay at the Club Fed if the ATF catches you.

That is the difference.
