View Full Version : Full auto .22

I'm looking for a realtively cheap .22 full auto. I just think it would be fun. Also what permits would you have to have for a gun like that. Thanks a lot.

Cheap and full-auto haven't belonged in the same sentence for a LOOONG time.
You could get an American 180 for about $8000, or a M16 with a .22 conversion for around $10000 or an Uzi with a conversion for around $7500 or a Ruger 10/22 trigger pack for $6000.

Get a Mac10 & Subcal conversion kit (www.subcal.com) - probably under 4G's.
There's also the Ruger AC556 and the Ciener 22 kit ~6.0 - 7.0g's
there are a few transferrable 10/22's out there, but why? when you can do the conversion kit and have much more flexibility...

Smurfslayer, thanks for that link. :) I may have to get one of those for my MAC. :D Or maybe I'll just build one...

Man... this American Arms 180 looks like blast...177 rd. drums.... it'd actually be CHEAP to shoot!! well... after the initial $10,000 out of the pocket book. ;)
If I could ever afford any class 3 stuff... I think that bad boy would definatley be one of the first I picked up.

Gee, If I had my druthers, I wouldn't fool with .22 caliber,
I will not fool with an illegal SMG and the paperwork and tax and all the background checks rather marries a person to a legal SMG, you can't loan it, sell, it , give it away, or leave it to your favorite pal.........like you are married to it for life!
I do know a ClassIII person and I love to shoot some of his toys. Firing a Thompson is rather orgasmic but a tad expensive, even with Wolf ammo.

The latest issue of Small Arms Review has a writeup "A Buyers Guide to .22lr Machine Guns" starting on page 62 (August 2005 issue).
Also I read in a couple of issues back of a company that builds an upper for the AR-style lower that resembles an American 180 and uses the 180 drums. The company is Tactical Innovations Inc HCR 85 Box 8024 Boomers Ferry ID 83805 (208)267-1585 www.tacticalinc.com but it doesn't show up on their website that I can find.

American Arms 180 looks like blast...177 rd. drums.... Actually you can get 275 round drums now - - :D
Accessories for the American 180 (http://www.american180.com/accessor/accessor.html)
you can't loan it, sell, it , give it away, or leave it to your favorite pal
Loan it - nope!
Sell it - yup, but it is the same PITA procedure you went through to buy it.
Give it away - yup, but it is the same PITA procedure you went through to buy it.
Leave it to your favorite pal - yup, but it is almost the same PITA procedure you went through to buy it, BUT no $200 tax stamp and you won't be the one waiting for the paperwork to come back. :p
BTW - - Shooting one is one of the most enjoyable things you can do outside of bed. ;)
