1. im a mall ninja (lets get that out of the way. )
2. i love call of duty and battlefield 3
3. i like modern/futuristic rifles.
4 i dont have $3-$10k for a real TAR21, .50 cal barrett, M200, M249, M60, etc
5. BATFE and CA DOJ said its okay
6. no machine guns allowed in CA
7. no centerfire restrictions since its rimfire
8. cheap 22 ammo @ 3 cents a round
9. not much 10/22 aftermarket modern looking stocks
10. more choices with airsoft stocks. 1:1 scale and feel
11. airsoft stocks with better plastic and/or metal
12. $50-$100 per used airsoft stock
13. dont like wood stocks
14. dont like sporting stocks
15. already have a AR15 and Saiga 12
16. its my money. none of anyones business to tell me how to spend it
17. im a gun enthusiast
18. its fun and addicting

how often can a US civilian handle a real thing without worrying about the AW ban and thousands of dollars? this is the closest thing i can handle a .50 cal Barrett, M200, M60, etc

Very cool! Man thats a very comprehensive collection.

I modded up my 10/22 but not so it looks like other military rifles but so that it can fill a small 'tactical' niche. LOL! yours is very cool and the rifles look very close to the original full size centerfire version.

The SCAR is very close looking to the original.

Great job !

Thanks.

I was looking at the.$500 SCAR MK22 clone by ISCC but decided to make my own $60 version using a broken stock. Then drop in the accuracy and reliability of a $120 marlin 795. Saves me $320 to buy a few more stocks or more .22's. Also i dont have to pay $50 a piece for ISCC's proprietary magazines that are hard to find.

That is one hell of a collection of modded .22's
I noticed some empty. Do you just switch them out for what your in the mood for?

Definitely giving me some ideas on mods for my
10/22. Having problems finding the bare stocks though
