Well, you do have my interest on the move.
Guess the place to start will be acquiring the rifles.
No problem there, as one can never have too many .22s.
Local shows and pawn shops to check out.
No hardship there.
If successful, then the assembly with stock mags to begin, just to see if it works, before getting expensive drums.
The measurements shouldn't be too hard to guesstimate, with the rifles mounted as described - two up and two down.
Now, where did that four pound sledge hammer go?

I wouldn't assemble everything using a guesstimate for the drums clearing between drums. You really need to have not only the 10/22's, but the drums as well before even starting working on the design and assembly. It would be unfortunate if you did it with guesstimating the distance for clearance needed on the drums and then realized by not actually having the drums to measure that you hadn't allowed for enough clearance and had to re-do all your previous work. Trust me on that one. On one of my earlier prototypes I didn't allow for proper clearance and had to trash a fake receiver I had spent a lot of time on and completely remake it with different clearances.

I've got an update on the GSG 10/22 110 rd drums. I spoke with the importer again yesterday at American Tactical Imports and he told me the 110 rd 10/22 drums may not be here by Christmas after all. He said the engineers at GSG were having a few problems with them and were making sure they had all the bugs worked out before exporting them to here. It's good that that GSG is doing due diligence to make sure they work correctly, but the importer said that means it might actually be winter of next year until they get here. That wasn't good news.
