    yes theyre gutted airsoft shells. i can drop in a 10/22 or a Marlin 795 depending on the stock.

    latest one im working on is the bolt action .22 Marlin XT-22 that will drop into the M200 Cheytac, Barrett M99 and L96

    majority of the time its easy with plastic stocks. theyre easier to cut

    the only hard ones to do is when youre dealing with metal or bullpups (due to creating a trigger linkage)

    Take the pictures down and find out who makes the stocks. You'll retire very early! Get an agreement w/ the manufacture(s) and get a patent.

    Be careful the serial number by law cannot be covered up.

    1. im a mall ninja (lets get that out of the way. :D)
    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
