yep its just a hobby and my personal collection. i have no plans to sell them. im in los angeles and we have those stupid bullet buttons so i figured i can just mod my 10/22's to look like a centerfire EBR using gutted airsoft stocks. its legit. i called a los angeles BATFE and a supervisor of firearms at CA DOJ and ask the legality of doing this and both said im good to go. they just said to make sure to follow my local laws and that its not full auto, no SBR, no suppressor, etc. 10 round limits, 26" minimum overall length, 16" minimum barrel length.

i just use a dremel, JB weld, epoxy steel putty, extended bolts.

now i want to make my own stocks from scratch using 16-22 gauge sheet metal. im going to recreate the old WWII machine guns and some futuristic stocks specific for my 10/22

i just recently bought a lincoln welder, table vice grip, brake press(bends sheet metal to 90 degrees), power drill.

i just find a image of a gun i want to clone, trace it on my computer screen, cut it out and trace it on the sheet metal. either use a plasma cutter or cutting wheel. use the brake press to bend the metal. then weld brackets to it and bolt it all up. i can add extensions to the mag release, safety, and JB weld the 10/22 rotary mag to the fake magazine.

here's what i have so far. still not done yet.

im using a gutted airsoft XM8 body inside.
used 22 gauge sheet metal and bent the upper receiver and lower hand guard
shaped the stock and external pieces with masonite wood.


things to do:
drill a hole to the action screw
redo the buffer bolt. its crooked
add rubber butt pad
still need to add JB weld over the stock and shave/sand it down to shape
still need to JB weld the 10/22 magazine over the G36 fake magazine
drill holes on the body and plug it with a nut/bolt
still need to bolt down the external pieces to the body
add some minor details to the body and stock
add JB weld to the base pistol grip and shape it
respray the entire gun with texture and flat black

There's just something wrong with de-nutting a Barrett and an EBR M14.

Daaang!

thanks man. there's a lot of these that i know i wont be able to touch or shoot so this is the closest thing i can get to a replica.

whenever i bring these to the range, people keep coming up to me asking me if these were the real things. its funny

Did some range time with my family for my bday

Zeroed in the scope for the M200 and was hitting steel targets out to 100 yards.

Range officers and the rest of the onlookers loved them. Also had 2 little kids that wanted to shoot the M200 Cheytac and the uncle said it made their day.

very cool, how many 10/22 do you own or is it just different stocks and you can exchange them?

how do you find the airsofts? they must be broken or something right because a good airsoft costs as much as a real gun (atleast here)

if you are gonna start from scratch now how about something sci-fi laser inspired?

i just have three 10/22's that i can interchange between stocks that were retrofitted. also have a Marlin 795, Marlin XT-22 and Savage MK II that I can also interchange on specific stocks.

i just go on craigslist, ebay, airsoftforums and look for broken/used guns where the external body is in excellent condition. thats how im able to get these for a good discount.

if i have to buy new, then i just go on evike.com, airsplatcom or airsoftgi.com

yep im working on some Gundam dress up kits where theyre know for their crazy angular/sharped/squared shapes. and theyre typically longer so im excited to do these when i have some time.

theres a Alien Pulse rifle that im waiting to buy used. its already out right now, im just waiting for some kid to break theirs and sell it
